Have you finished your romance novel and now don’t know what to do with it?

Have you written one or more romance novels and only have 10 sales or less a week?

Do you want to make a full-time living off your romance novels but have no idea where to start?

Are you tired of discounting your books to 99 cents and getting only a handful of sales?

Have you ever felt that there’s no way you could sell more than 50 copies of your romance novel a day?

Do you want to find readers who will buy all of your new releases?

Wow. You’re totally in the right place!

"Before this course, I only did boosted ads and probably 1 ad via the Power Editor. Unfortunately, I had no idea what I was doing and so my ROI was really bad.

From your videos, I learned that it wasn't as intimidating as I thought and jumped right into the ad manager/power editor again. I'm currently getting a 200% - 300% return on my daily investment which is awesome.

This was a godsend for me because up until this point I was hiring a PA to help promote my book and while I was getting some bumps in sales, I needed long-term results. With what I learned about using FB ads targeted to my specific market (romance), I've been able to hit 5 figures and I know that with doing what works (FB ads), I'll be able to keep it consistent.

I was able to earn five figures in October, which is really good and need to keep that going while I continue writing more books."

-Liz Durano

"I've only begun Charlotte's course and I've already saved the money I spent on the course. I spent close to $4,000 preparing my first book for the market by paying: editors, graphic artists for the cover and someone to format the book etc. Through doing Charlotte's course I've learned how to easily format my next novel, create my own front cover and have been introduced to editors charging half the price I paid. Voila the course is paid for.

The information Charlotte provides is concise and directly relates to what I need, to prepare my book for marketing. When I go to a seminar I only expect 20 percent of the information to be on target and useful. Charlotte's course so far has been 90 percent useful to me.
I can't see how any romance author could feel let down with this course."
-Marian Yates

My Journey

Here’s what my first month of sales looked like before I learned everything that I’m going to teach you in this course.

My total revenue for November 2015 on was $38.30.

My sales from Amazon just 6 months later:

My sales from the first 7 months of 2016 on all other platforms (Apple, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc.):

Let's do it!


The Profitable Romance Author shares my very best self-publishing strategies. Now, you can stop trying out a million different ideas and, instead, grow your romance author business effectively and in less time!

Here’s what happened when I first started using my own Profitable Romance Author marketing system…my sales shot up!

Sales in November 2015 on $38.30

Sales in December 2015 on $1,431.64

This is an INSANE increase in sales. And it shows the power of Facebook advertising.

And then things got even more crazy...

Sales for January 2016 on $9,608.04


NOTE: Facebook advertising is just one part of the The Profitable Romance Author step-by-step system.

Your Facebook ads will not be effective if you do not have all of the other aspects of your marketing game in place (such as an awesome blurb, optimised keywords and categories, a great cover, an amazing author website, a well-converting landing page, etc.).

What if you had hundreds people reading your romance novels, subscribing your mailing list, and sharing your books with the world each day?

What if you had an excited following waiting to “Buy Now” every time you released your new book?

What if you knew exactly what to do from beginning to end when it came to marketing your romance novel?

The Profitable Romance Author is your SECRET weapon to finally making a living off your passion!

"I purchased Charlotte's course knowing very little about self-publishing. Through taking action with her course, and having access for discussion within the Facebook group, I have achieved so much in such a short period of time. I have finally learned how to properly set up Facebook ads, which I now know is essential to profiting from selling my books. I'm also excited to say that for the first time in my publishing career I'm making a decent ROI.

Before I started her course, I had less than 200 email subscribers to my name. I now have over 1200! I feel like I now have the knowledge to scale my publishing business and the sky is the limit. Thanks Charlotte!"

I started writing romance in July 2015 and have built up my business to $7,000- $10,000 profit a month! (I made over $12,500 in profit in May, but that month was particularly insane and I don't want to over promise).

As a result, I was able to quit my job freelance writing resumes and cover letters and focus exclusively on my writing.

Now, I want to give back to the indie/self-publishing romance community and help you achieve your dreams of writing full-time.

What Do I Write?

Mainly billionaire romances with hot guys and steamy scenes. I am the author of the #1 Amazon Bestseller, Malibu Connection: A Billionaire Matchmaker Novel as well as The Debt, Falling for the CEO, One Year and The Date.

How Many Books Do I Have Out?

I currently have 3 series, which consist of 2 standalone novels each. The series are loosely tied together according to theme, but all the books can be read individually.

Why Did I Start This Course?

I know that a lot of indie romance authors are struggling with making only a couple of sales. I was one of you! Last fall, I spent WAY too much time doing Facebook Author Takeover Events and posting info about my books in various Facebook groups.

Then I realized that to make it as a romance author and actually make $$ doing this, I had to think of it as a business. Writing the book is only a small fraction of that business.

We all do this because we're passionate about writing, but the only way that this will become something that will make you a living is by focusing a considerable amount of your energy on marketing.

Marketing does NOT have to be hard!

That's where I come in. I want to distill everything I learned about how to sell romance books, right here for all of you.
