What to Expect From the Newsletter
The weekly emails are focused and practical. They include a short article about a particular aspect of writing or blogging and a Q&A section.
Once or twice a year, I’ll send you a new or updated free mini-ebook. You can read it on screen, print it out, pop it on your Kindle … whatever you want. It’s yours to keep, no strings attached.
You can hit “reply” on any email and your message will come straight to my inbox. I’ll always consider your feedback and suggestions. If you’ve got a question, I’ll be delighted to address it in the newsletter or on the blog.
Your Free Ebooks: Time to Write … and more
I’d suggest you start off with Time to Write: How to Fit More Writing Into Your Life, Right Now. It’s been my most popular mini-ebook for six years … and I’ve given it a complete overhaul to make it even more useful.
I know how easy it is to read pages and pages of great advice without actually taking action. The whole point of this ebook is to make sure that you carve out some much-needed and much-deserved time for your writing.
I think this e-book was right on spot, I especially like the suggestion on recording my daily activities and see how long it takes to finish. I need to get myself a watch…anyway, I’m glad to be getting weekly newsletters, it’s an awesome decision.

So, What’s the Catch?
Free weekly tips and encouragement, free mini-ebooks … there’s got to be a catch, right?
Maybe you’ve been on newsletter lists in the past that’ve turned into pitch-fests, with constant, “urgent” messages telling you to buy now.
That’s not how I work.
Yes, when I release a product, I’ll let you know – in fact, you’ll get to hear about it before anyone else. Not only that, you’ll get a hefty discount.
But I hate shady sales tactics as much as you. I won’t ever send emails about anyone else’s products, and I won’t ever try to hard-sell you on mine. I’ll just make sure that you know what I’m up to, so that if you want to buy anything from me, you’ll know how to do it – and you’ll get the best possible price.
So, are you in? Just pop your email address in the box below. I’ll be thrilled to have you on board, and you’ll get access to your free ebooks as soon as you’ve confirmed your email address.
I have just read your ebook, thank you very much. It was the right points I needed. Getting sidetracked is me, I am the queen of not getting started. I crave most writing sessions, and your book has helped me focus in.
