Things to use right NOW to support your writing & publishing career. ⬇️ (Scroll down for the list.)

I’ve packed the 390-page book (yours on Aug. 23rd) with the most mystical, funniest, heartfelt (and struggling!) cinematic stories of the magic and mayhem I’ve experienced. Same with my celeb author interviewees from the Beautiful Writers PodcastBut before that’s in your hands, several writing, publishing, and marketing expert friends like Tim Grahl, Kate Northrup, and Samantha Bennett are giving you GOLD.

Just fill in your details below (including your book order receipt #) and we’ll be in near-immediate touch with your freebies.

And! To avoid that last-minute holiday gift scramble (you think I don’t know that drill?!:)), I’ll mail you signed nameplates when you order 5 or more copies. (Just send a screenshot of your order to, the names you’d like me to personalize, your mailing address, and bam! Just like that, you’re a holiday hero!)

If you’re not already on my monthly newsletter list, you’ll be added for all the latest intel. Watch for an email with an audio link where I share some of my all-time favorite writing tips for attracting literary agents and landing the deal.

Beautiful Emails: How to Write the Only Newsletter Anyone Wants to Read

Live Zoom Session with Laura Belgray and Linda Sivertsen
90-minutes on September 13th, 12 noon Pacific

Great news: We’re in the age of the email newsletter, and they’re only getting hotter. Why is that great news? Because a newsletter is the best way to grow an audience, make them fall in love with you and your writing, tell your favorite personal stories, hone your voice, and—if you’re an author—SELL BEAUCOUP BOOKS.

And who better to open up her bag of tricks than email superstar Laura Belgray—author of the upcoming Tough Titties (via Hachette), Co-Creator of The Copy Cure with Marie Forleo, Founder of Talking Shrimp, creator of Inbox Hero, her signature email copywriting course, and writer of one of the most-loved email newsletters in the online creative space. Fun fact: Not only do readers cite Laura’s emails as “the only ones I always open and read,” but they bring in over $1M a year in sales.

In this 90-minute training and Q&A, Laura and I will show you how to write emails that get your subscribers hanging on to your every word . . . and spreading the word about you.

The Writer's Common Language

The Writers’ Common Language: A Shared Vocabulary To Tell Better Stories


Like many beginning writers, Tim Grahl struggled to learn his craft—and even to find the right words to describe his questions and challenges. After reading a library of how-to books, Tim found what he needed in the unique Story Grid approach.

With the help of editor, friend, and Story Grid creator Shawn Coyne, Tim discovered a new vocabulary—what he now calls The Writers’ Common Language. Learning this language can help us all think and talk about our stories with more clarity and specificity.

These days Tim is a top book marketing expert & author (who once helped catapult five clients on the New York Times Best Seller list at the SAME time!). In this book, Tim shares moments from his own journey as a storyteller and how the strategies and tools of Story Grid transformed the way he reads, writes, and edits his own work.

Finally, in this gem of an ebook (or paperback), you’ll find a breezy, brilliant way to wrap your mind around topics like Genre, Theme, Voice, Point of View, and Value Shift to level of up every project. “Once you can apply these tools to your own story,” Tim says, “you will be amazed at the progress you can make.”

When we speak in this writers’ common language, we can create community, learn from each other, and—most important—bring more great stories into the world. (Tim sells this book on his site. Priceless.)
