$2,000/Month: Is It STILL Possible to Earn Good Money Writing Romance?

The title for this ebook was derived from my sales numbers when I published the first version of this ebook in September 2014. I earned almost $2,000 within the first couple of months that I started writing romance regularly. I had seven titles out, which included the one I’d written in May of 2013.

I published six short novels between March and April of 2014, which is one reason my income exploded so quickly, in my opinion. Can it be done today? Sure. You never know when a title is going to take off, as I explain within.

In this updated version I list 20 months of sales numbers — from 2014 through 2016 — from four outlets: Amazon, B&N, Google Play, and All Romance Ebooks. After combing through these numbers, you’ll have some concrete data on which to base your decision.

Unsolicited Testimonial

Hi Yuwanda,

Just wanted to let you know I tore through your latest, the romance novel writing book, and loved it. It gave me so many tools to begin immediately and a big boost of confidence. I love how you break everything down with links, your personal experience, and solid advice.

As a side note, my boyfriend spotted a typo on the cover. It says “how to money” instead of “how to make money”. I did not even noticed it until he pointed it out as I was reading. (Author Note: I fixed the cover!)

Thanks again for another great investment!~Laura
