READY TO GO WIDE?
Have you been meaning to go Wide for some time, but every time you stop to think about it, you get overwhelmed by all of the set-up work?
Have you started the process of leaving the Amazon exclusive bubble, but keep second-guessing yourself and wishing you had someone to hold your hand?
Hey! I’m Morgana and I offer one-to-one consulting sessions for new authors and authors transitioning to Wide.
I’ve been Wide since day one. The thought of exclusivity just did not sit right with me. I always had dreams of my books in libraries, reaching readers as far as the internet would allow and with Kindle Unlimited I couldn’t have done either of those things.
I’m a steamy celebrity romance author with eight novels, two novellas and one box set out that cover rock star and Hollywood romance. As I said, I’ve been Wide since day one, learning each platform step-by-step. I’m direct with Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, Amazon, Radish and KISS and use a distributor for Apple Books, Dreame, Scribd and various other platforms and libraries.
You’ll find I’m a big email marketing nerd and I love learning new things (No. 3 Learner and No. 4 Input on the Gallup’s Strength test). I have this weird habit of building things and then learning something new and deciding to start from scratch. I’ve done it with my website, every single one of my welcome sequences, my backmatter, my blurbs… the list could go on.
The point is nothing is ever stagnant in this business and everything changes. Staying on top of those changes is exciting to me and I always want to share that knowledge.
Whatever your reasons for considering Wide now, it can be overwhelming. It’s just a fact of life at this point. There are multiple platforms, all of them with their own systems and different algorithms. Your mindset and public language use need to change. Even your preferred methods of marketing may not work as well Wide as they once did in Kindle Unlimited.
If you can’t afford to pay someone for help at this point, that’s okay. Just take it step-by-step. But if you need guidance or someone to bounce your doubts off, I’m here to help with one-to-one consults.
Feel free to send me an email using the contact form below if you have questions.

TOPICS I CAN NOT HELP WITH…
❌ Taking your wide career to the next level – right now, my focus is on advising brand new authors and newly wide authors.
❌ Being successful in KU
❌ Whether you should go Wide or KU – I’m staunchly Wide, anything I say on this topic will be biased and you should be figuring out your “why” for publishing and making this business decision yourself.
❌ Switching your books between KU and Wide every 90 days – my answer will always be don’t do it.
❌ Facebook, BookBub, or AMS ads
❌ Finding a traditional publisher or agent
❌ Very genre-specific topics that don’t involve romance
❌ Social media marketing, Facebook parties or the like
❌ Writing craft
❌ Anything specific to publishing in the US or other countries that aren’t the UK (like buying ISBNs at your local agency, taxes, copyright, etc).

2) Pick a date from my TidyCal (I only allow up to two author sessions per day in order to allow for me to still get my writing done, so don’t be surprised if the next opening is a ways away). You should see the TidyCal link while checking out.
