Happy Halloween!

Are you ready for treat #3? I bet you are or you wouldn’t be here, right?

For the longest time, writing the query letter was the hardest thing for me. Then I figured out how to SLAP it together.

Summarize the article.
List your qualifications.
Ask for the assignment.
Provide a portfolio/clips.

Today’s give-away tells you how to follow each of the steps to write effective query letters.

SLAP Your Queries

Treat #2

Trick or treat
Smell my feet
Give me something
Good to eat!

OK. No. Really. Don’t smell my feet. You wouldn’t like that.

And it’s not something to eat, but rather, something to read.

I noticed something one day last week.

One of my books has been pirated. Yes. Get ‘Twitter’pated has been pirated. I’ve been working with the pirate’s website host to get it taken down, but nothing yet.

So.

From now until the end of November, I will have the entirety of Get ‘Twitter’pated: A Writer’s Handbook to Twitter here for free.

Yes. Free.

But only until the end of November. After that, it will come down, so get it while you can.

Just click the picture of the cover or the link above to get it.

 

Look for a Treat

Friday is Halloween. In my town, trick-or-treat night is Thursday. Why? Football games on Friday. There is concern for the traffic before and after the games and kids not exactly paying attention running to and fro.

I’m not blaming the kids. It’s hard to avoid getting excited. So I agree that it should be changed for the safety of the kids getting their treats.

Speaking of treats…

Starting tomorrow and going through Friday, I will have a “treat” for you on this blog. Each one will be up for a limited time. Keep on the lookout so you won’t get tricked when they get taken down.

Until then….
