Meet Bella Andre
Bestselling author Bella Andre has always been a writer. Songs came first, and then non-fiction books, but as soon as she started writing her first romance novel, she knew she’d found her perfect career. Known for “sensual, empowered stories enveloped in heady romance” (Publishers Weekly) about sizzling alpha heroes and the strong women they’ll love forever, nearly all of her novels have appeared on Kobo’s Top50 list and she is a permanent presence on the Kobo Writing Life Bestsellers list.
Her books have been Cosmopolitan Magazine “Red Hot Reads” twice and have been translated into nine languages. Winner of the Award of Excellence, The Washington Post has called her “One of the top digital writers in America”. She has given the keynote speech at Book Expo America on her self-publishing success and has sold more than one million books.
Recently, Bella sold the print rights to her Sullivan series to Harlequin in a major seven-figure deal! Ever loyal to self-publishing, Bella retained her eBook rights to the series and will continue to publish all her titles digitally with Kobo and other eBook retailers.

Meet Barbara Freethy
Top-selling author Barbara Freethy has been making up stories most of her life. Growing up in a neighborhood with only boys, she spent a lot of time reading. After college and several years in the P.R. field, she decided to try her hand at a novel. Two years after that decision, she had a finished book and a contract with Silhouette Romance!
In January 2011, she began self publishing some of her backlist titles and was shocked at her success. By the end of 2011, 10 of her titles had appeared on the bestseller lists for over 42 weeks! She didn’t look back.
Barbara is currently working on a family series, THE CALLAWAYS, and she’ll be self-publishing the first title in late 2012. She can always be found at the top of the Kobo Writing Life Bestsellers list and is a great favourite with our customers. She loves self-publishing because it allows her to bring books out more quickly to satisfy her fan base and she plans on continuing to self-publish for many years to come.
