Are you a romance author? Or perhaps you want to be? Do you spend hours googling "how to..." instead of writing?

Your searching ends here. With the AFWB Author Manual, you'll have all the information you need at your fingertips, so you can use your time to prioritise what really matters, your next book release.

This is not just an online course or a collection of articles. It's a comprehensive manual that will guide you through your author journey using a variety of medias, including;


  • Webinars & Workshops

  • Video Lessons

  • Articles & Blog Posts

  • Downloadable Resources

  • Quizzes & Challenges

  • Worksheets & Checklists

The manual is LIVE, meaning we are constantly updating the information we provide and adding brand new content, keeping things fresh and relevant. What's more if what you want to know isn't available within the pages of the manual, let us know and we'll get researching.

We are currently developing the manual but would love to give you a sneak peek at what's to come. You can get a free downloadable Book Launch Check List and attend a free webinar "Maximing Instagram For Authors".
