I know I recently ran a newsletter promotion, but I just met a talented, smart, and giving woman on Twitter who has a Web site with lots of good stuff for writers on it (Isn’t networking wonderful?).
Shelley Hitz has a neat (short!) e-white paper called
7 Things Publishing Companies Don’t Want You to Know About Self Publishing.”
1. Rave about Sharing with Writers newsletter to your friends.
2. If they bite, send their e-mail address to me at HoJoNews@aol.com. Put SUBSCRIBE: FREE SEVEN THINGS WHITE PAPER in the subject line.
3. Paste their e-mail address in the body of the e-mail and send it to HoJoNews (at) AOL (dot) com.
4. I’ll subscribe them and send you both The Self-Publishing Coach’s white papers.
Alternately, you can have them subscribe to this blog and then let me know about it. Yeah, it's the honor system.
Then, if you’re at all interested in self publishing anything—from your next novel to a promotional e-book—you’ll go to Shelley's site and poke around a bit. Maybe sign up for her newsletter, too.
I hope this doesn’t seem too repetitious to you. It is a new opportunity, after all. It is the New Year and a great time to get enthusiastic. And, one must take advantage of these opportunites as they arise.
I hope to hear from you!
