Make money by writing short stories…

Charlie Bear here with some news from Mom Peep. She apologizes if you already read this from her Taylor’s Tips Newsletter, but she likes to send it out via FB and Twitter too. Here it is!

TAYLOR’S TIPS for a more productive you…

Dear Friend,

The P MS to a T book is hot off the press! Seriously…it just got here a week ago. But now I’m in a quandary.

P MS to a T Signature Size

The winning formula has helped many writers learn how to write short stories that sell. They’re making money! But how do I get the word out that the book is available? I just attended a writers conference and sold out in a day. I’m bringing them to my next conference in two weeks. How do I tell others who aren’t at those conferences?

I have to ask for help. But that goes against the bones in my body. Why? I don’t know. Because I feel like I’m imposing? Asking for a favor? Putting you on the spot? All of those. I have to swallow my fear and reach out. So I’m doing that right now. I’m asking for your help. (A footnote: Thank You to all the wonderful folks who have already helped me. You’re the best!)

I’m not asking for your help to sell more books (I would give the book away for free if it didn’t cost me money to make it). I’d just like to ask for the favor of passing the word around. It might help your writer friends to make this:

If you want, you can forward this post, or to make it super easy I’ve listed a few ways you can pass on the information by cutting and pasting any of these into an email or onto a Twitter post, on Facebook, or wherever you like. I would be so grateful!

Thank you soooo much for passing the word around! And if you feel like it, let me know that you did so I can email to you a big smooch of a kiss on the cheek and a warm hug. And a HUGE and grateful THANK YOU!

P.S. If you are a writer who purchased the book at the OCCWC this past weekend, I would be extremely grateful if you’d write a review on Amazon. That would be utterly fantastic of you! SMOOCHES to you, too!

Hugs and love, and blessings on your work.

Follow your dreams…
B.J.

    I’m in! I love your writing, and I love you! I’ll do a post, or if you’d prefer, we can do an interview about the book. Your choice.

    BJ

    Now that I’ve had time to read over the post, I have given it some thought. I’ve got some wonderful dog short stories I can send you. Just say the word and they’re yours. I am trying to get on more blogs to promote ‘Confessions of a Guide Dog – The Blonde Leading the Blind’ and blogs are a great way to do it.

    Write to me and I’ll send you a few stories.

    Hugz

      Mark,
      Why not send me just one or two sometime later this month? I’m on deadline for a writing project and then gone to a conference in Seattle. I can look at them and we can talk toward the end of May. Work for you?
      All the best,
      B.J.

    Hi BJ, it’s Mark Carlson. Congrats on your new book and hope it’s a success. I’m in the same boat (with a leaky bottom and wobbly rudder.). I am dong the same and trying to get more notice of my book too.

    ‘Confessions of a Guide Dog – The Blonde Leadin the Blind.

    Any chance we can help each other?

    I can promote your book and you vice versa.

    Your thoughts?

      Mark,
      I like the thought of cross-promotion. We’ll work on that for sure. See my other comment for my timetable, though. Let’s revisit this idea in a couple of weeks.
      Thanks!
