The folks at WOW-Women on Writing, www.WOW-WomenonWriting.com, kicked off Cyber Monday with a new gift guide. They say, "We've done our research so you don't have to. In creating the guide, WOW! staff members and readers picked their favorite books of the year and compiled them into one portable document that you can take anywhere and share with your friends.
"We have something for everyone on your list! Whether you're looking for a cookbook or need to find the perfect picture book, we have a few choice suggestions for you. We also have other items like tees for readers and writers, gadgets, and other writer-friendly products.
"The guide is a feast for the eyes! Every page has its own flavor and contains product descriptions and clickable links you can use right away."
And yes, they chose The Frugal Editor and The Frugal Book Promoter as favorites in the writers section. There are others, too. Perfect gifts for your writing friends. Find the Guide at http://www.wow-womenonwriting.com/downloads/WOWHolidayGiftGuide.pdf You'll also find a page for "Other Gifts Writers Will Enjoy!"
BTW, feel free to pass this guide around to your friends. It's a gift in itself. And note the promotion lesson here. Gift Guides are a great way to promote your book. And your contact at WOW is Angela MacIntosh.
