Bloom used to work as a commissioner for rollercoasters for theme parks until she moved to Connecticut with her family. She began writing romances and her first e-book, No-one Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday became an Amazon best-seller and she now makes a living from her self-published books.
Bloom took a creative writing course and drafted a romantic comedy. The book was signed up by one agent and the rights sold to a number of different countries, but she couldn’t find a British publisher.
Having written a second book, changed agent and yet still been unable to find a publisher, she decided to self-publish, encouraged by the success of Nick Spalding. She spent three months analysing what makes books successful on Amazon.
To help her book stand out, she commissioned an agency to create the cover and then went after influential book bloggers in an attempt to publicise her book, which was launched in April 2013.
She appliued for the book to be featured in Amazon’s monthly promotion and was accepted. Three months later, it was at the top of the e-book romance category and had sold 200,000 copies. Her second book was launched in July of the same year and it became an Amazon best-seller within a month.
Since then, she has launched two more e-books and has been published by Random House.
