SON OF A SAINT by Haro Istamboulian


About: SON OF A SAINT is a fictional memoir I have been working on for four years. It is a psychological, emotional, philosophical journey of a boy living a dramatic and sometimes surreal life whose only teachers are observing his mother's poversh lifestyle and learning from the streets. However; the conclusion of the book is of much surprise.

Contrary to how artists are working these days, I don't want to do this on my own. I believe that a publisher will take this book to great lengths. Obviously, I cannot spoil it for any of you, but I guarantee that the book will leave the reader speechless with chills throughout their entire body, still remaining moments after reading it. 

The time is almost approaching for the book to be concluded. If on schedule, the estimated completion date of the book will be in April.

It is at this time that the book will have to be submitted for editing, which is a costly process. Transcripts will have to be prepared. Large amounts of the book will then need to be printed so they may be submitted with transcript and cover letters to publishers nationwide.

Quick Summary: "A psychological and emotional mental journey of Napoleon Hill, Eckhart Tolle, Oscar Wilde, William Shakespeare and Alan Watts with a twist of reality."
