Author Wins Six-Figure Book Deal By Selling Copies From Bedroom

Posted at 7:32AM Thursday 31 Jul 2014

Tina Seskis, 48, of Archway, wrote her first novel One Step Too Far last year but was unable to secure a publishing deal. So the mother-of-one decided to create both hardback and ebook editions of her debut novel herself — hiring an editor, cover designer and a printer.
