Writing Your Book

Before writing Against All Odds I knew nothing about publishing or the industry behind it - you can benefit from my experience and the lessons I learned

Although I have a number one best seller and I took The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and a lot of celebrity biographies off of the Christmas no1 spot, as a new author I originally didn't end up with the best deal that I could have...

Don't let this happen to you!

Publishing Against All Odds has changed my life, I'm now a best selling author and sought after public speaker, but I didn't know what I should have looked for when I started out to get my book published, don't suffer the same fate as me - I'm here to help!

Against All Odds

Paul Connolly is a best selling author whose book, “Against All Odds” has topped e-book charts and continues to be a top 10 title in a number of Amazon categories after 5 years.

An autobiography by a first-time author who didn’t learn to read until the age of 25 has topped the e-book bestsellers list.

The story of Paul Connolly, who is now a celebrity fitness trainer who endured an appalling childhood, has proved so popular it outsold Stieg Larsson’s crime thriller The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in the Amazon Kindle Christmas charts.

In his first book, Against All Odds, Connolly describes how he was abandoned in a dustbin as a two-week-old baby and suffered years of abuse at a children’s home in Essex. He later became a boxer and worked on supermodel Elle Macpherson's workout video The Body.

The book was first published in March 2010 and about 5,000 print copies were sold, however, it saw a surge in popularity since the electronic version was launched and it continues to be a bestseller years after it’s initial launch.

Paul’s story is a remarkable tale of endurance and survival – vivid, disturbing but ultimately uplifting, as the beaten child who was once told ‘you’ll never be worth a thing’ becomes a man with the heart to love, live and embrace the future.
