About

Hi, I'm Angela

An international bestselling author who makes six figures selling books directly to readers. In 2019 I started selling direct to readers and was stunned by the response.

After 2 years of learning the pros and cons of selling direct, my husband and I decided to open The Signed Book Shop and give more authors the opportunity to benefit from selling in a shared marketplace.

Additionally, I also build custom websites for authors and provide marketing consults.
