The Chic Author: Create your dream career and lifestyle, writing and self-publishing non-fiction books
My name is Fiona Ferris, and this was me. But then I took it a step further – I educated myself on being an author, and started self-publishing my books five short years ago. Within two years I became a fully self-supported work-from-home author, and my happy success continues to this day.
I still pinch myself that this is my reality, and I genuinely believe that if I can do it, anyone with a desire to write can do it. In this book I share everything I have learned, along with my best success tips to help you on your author journey.
