recommended books

Writers' & Artists' Yearbook 2018

Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook 2018 – this is a book I’ve been buying since 2003 (I still have this version #hoarder). Every year it’s updated with new articles, insights and advice for writers and artists throughout the world who are serious about publishing their work. This is an affiliate code link for website.

Write and Sell Short Stories

How to Write & Sell Short Stories by Della Galton – I first discovered Della when I was trying to write short stories as part of my Creative Writing Diploma with the OU. Anyone who has tried to write short stories will appreciate how tricky it can be, which is why Della’s book is so helpful. It sparked my love of fiction writing (which sadly I don’t have time for but who knows what the future holds…) and I’m sure if you’re serious about writing short stories and selling them to magazines, you won’t ever want to be without a copy of this book.

TRUSTED PARTNERS

Paul Knight Coaching

As you know, I will only ever share affiliate information from clients, friends, colleagues and resources I have full faith in. And Paul is at the top of the list!

Back in 2015, Paul asked if I could help to self-publish his first book, Lose Weight From the Top Down followed quickly by his second book, Diet Success.

We have since written two books together: The Write Way to Be Happy Journal and 91 Affirmations: Lucky Dip Your Way to a Happier, Healthier You.

The busy woman

You can have a mooch around Paul’s online store here:
    1) an online monthly ‘5 Life’ club with a companion journal
    2) e-books
    3) meditations
    4) 5-minute workout plans (my kind of workout to get me away from the desk at regular intervals during the day!)
    5) weight loss bundles
    6) an ultimate walking guide

    If you’re looking for gift ideas and/or need to give hubby/partner a hint, then look no further. The biggest investment we can all make is to take of our own health, fitness and wellbeing; that way everyone else we spend time with reaps the rewards too.

Everything I learned in those early days and beyond (from business practicalities to tackling confidence and mindset challenges) is thanks to Claire. I’d like to share with you Claire’s Awesome Marketing Planner System.
