Abstract

 

The growing number of aspiring authors, in parallel with the unbending selective attitude of publishing houses, has invited bestselling writers, editors at literary magazines and even users of online forums to share tips and advice with publishing hopefuls. In this context, this paper sought to guide potential authors with a more scientific method, which relied on an extensive literature review and a dialectical approach to research. The study examined the different variables that contributed to the success of books and found that an authorís personal experiences played a pivotal role in writing. Particularly, the main focus of the investigation was the reception of irreconcilable literary movements that have risen throughout time and the paper found that successful books in contemporary history were the offspring of such ancestral influences.

Keywords: autobiography, art for artís sake, literary movements, personal experiences, authorís guide
