I'm Maria. I'm an author who helps other romance writers make the leap into earning income as published authors by teaching everything, including improving your writing, building a strong author brand, getting the most out of your publishing options, and marketing strategically.
I've had the pleasure of working with writers since 2005. A lot has changed in that time.
Both my English degrees provided me with a strong understanding of literature and language, and my years working as a freelance ghostwriter showed me behind the scenes of the self-publishing world. However, my own author experience has allowed me to put all the pieces together and develop a clear, realistic path for every author to start earning income from their books.
So many writers suffer from the self-doubt that comes with zero books sales or burn out by trying to do all the marketing things recommended on social media.
If you're anything like me, you want to share your writing with readers and get paid for your work.
Don't worry. I know exactly how to make that a reality. In my first year as an author, I published 3 books, sold more than 3000 copies, and was earning steady income by doing a few key things, and you can do them too:
1. Write books you love and are proud of.
2. Focus marketing around your specific readers.
3. Enjoy seeing steady growth in sales as you keep writing!
