Carolina Romance Writers was founded in 1984 with the purpose of bringing together local published authors and future writers of romance novels, offering support, guidance, and aid in successfully landing a publishing contract and honing our craft.

Beyond The Zon
What if I told you could reach as many, if not more, readers at retailers outside of Amazon? And that sometimes you can sell better in other countries? Or that there are other ways to reach new readers other than flinging yourself into the Amazon and social media void? Three years ago I was fed up with being just another author in a sea of authors trying to be seen. That’s when I got a piece of advice that completely changed the way I looked at my books, helped me break out, and to grow a diverse stream of income over several book vendors.
In this workshop I’ll share that advice as I walk you through the different retailers, their strengths and weaknesses, emerging markets, and how to rethink targeting your book to readers so you can ride out the ups and downs of a changing industry and create a stable income.
