One of my resources made over 900 sales in the space of a few weeks and earned nearly £2000 in royalties. In 2017 I was shortlisted as one of eight nominees for the TES 2017, Bev Evans, Author of the Year Award. In this 26-page, step by step guide I share my mistakes and my successes to help you avoid making the same mistakes and to become a successful author sooner than you would have done without this guide.
