This Is Not The Email You’re Looking For….

…as if you were sitting by your mobile phone or laptop, waiting for the ‘ping’ to say you’d just received your daily goodness from me.

Anyhoo….I wasn’t about yesterday.  I was up to my eyeballs with work, and getting ready for our eldest son’s birthday…he’s turning 18 today.

Bit weird having a ‘chadult’ in the house now. 🙂

Weirdest part is…he’s treating me to tickets to the new Star Wars movie today.

I know…it’s his birthday and he’s treating me. But that’s what he wanted to do, so who am I to stop him. 🙂  

I also can’t wait to see it.

Who knew George Lucas’ film idea would still have legs and be around?

George was also very clever in his thinking, he had a series of films planned out. Once he had the audience hooked, he knew they’d be back for more.

Something every author should be doing.

And his films lived on after the movies with his merchandise and toys.

Something every author could also easily do nowadays with t-shirts, and other printing methods available.

But for all the money he made, he could have made far more it he had all of those fans on an email list.

Imagine this conversation between him and his assistant.

‘George, we’ve got a new book finished, we’re publishing it tomorrow.’

‘….send out an email and let them know.’

‘George, can you sign off on this t-shirt design?’

‘…looks great, send out an email.’

‘George, we plan on releasing the movie next April.’

‘…send out an email and let them know.’


…poor George and his company had to pay advertisers, buy ads and spend a fortune on marketing.

He could have saved himself a fortune and probably sold more with an email

How about you?

‘Email list building you are?’


‘This is the email building help you’ve been looking for.’

Now I’m off to stuff my face at the local Chinese buffet and send my sugar and cholesterol levels through the roof.

Happy times 🙂

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, Well For Some That Is…

…well for some it is.

I love this time of month, not just because it’s December tomorrow, but because I’ve just put more great pressies under the WriteCome virtual Christmas tree.

And its not just the end of this month, but at the end of every month I get this buzz. Right now I’ve added my latest email writing course, a virtual book tour planner, and a package of social media images you can stick your name on.

And this is only this month’s stuff. There’s plenty more than that to keep you occupied between now and Christmas as you wait for January’s prezzies to drop.

If you’re a member of WriteCome, you can get your hands on December’s gifts a day early.

…I couldn’t wait….I know, big kid.  🙂

For everyone else, there’s more than enough to go around. Click the button below, pull up a chair, and tuck into the feast.

I can’t be held responsible for any added weight you gain before Christmas as your head swells with all this knowledge.

But stick around and I might have something in January that might help with it. 🙂

Start Christmas early. 

“And So This Is Christmas…”

…and what have you done? Another year over, and a new one just begun.’

You probably recognise those lyrics as ‘War Is Over’ by John Lennon.

Those opening ones were one’s that used to haunt me at Christmas time each year.

Each year I used to look back at my life…before I started writing and doing what I’m doing now…and look at another year wasted.

Twelve months had passed since I’d last heard that song, and yet here I was still doing the same things I hated to do.

Inside, I knew there was more I could be doing. You probably feel like that, but you’re holding off, like I was, for January 1st as the day that we’re going to turn things around.

But you and I know that you’re kidding yourself, come the 5th of January, you’re back doing the same as you were before.

It’s like the Monday morning dieters that fall off the wagon by lunchtime the following Tuesday.

Every day is your January 1st, and between now and the real one, you’ve got a month to get a head start on everyone else. is filling up with more great content come Dec 1st.

Some people may be holding off, because you know, January 1st and all, but why wait?

You could be up and running, with your first children’s book, workbook, piece of fiction, or course created and up for sale, in time for January.

Come Christmas, you could be listening to John Lennon’s song and be grinning to yourself.

“What have I done….? Plenty thanks, John.”

And if the FTC is reading this email…yes, I know it’s not January 1st… and it’s false advertising…but come on, give a guy a break. 🙂
