A SNIPPET BECOMES A RELATIONSHIP
Most readers have a wish list of articles, stories or books to read next, but long to find a new author who will inform or please them as much as their current favourites. Time is at a premium, buying a whole book when you don’t know if you’ll like it is often too big a step. If only an exciting bit was available like a trailer.
A #SNIPPET is more than one exciting extract, it’s a collection of seven. Each one features a life-changing moment from a novel, genre fiction, or biography. Or in information guides, seven key segments of information. But each piece is limited to 750-1250 words, so the introduction doesn’t take long to read. When readers enjoy reading a SNIPPET, they’ll be ready to read every other word the author has written.
For readers who would only like to read one piece rather than a whole SNIPPET, #Real Life Press has introduced the #LIFECHANGE CHALLENGE for authors to showcase extracts from their work which show life-changing moments.
If they submit ten, Real Life Press will use three to showcase and publicise their work and create an eBook of the other seven, which can be sold for 99p with a 50% royalty to the author or offered free. That decision is the writers to make.
Real Life Press has published #Sindy in Real Life as a full length #eBook and #Paperback. #Sindy’s Snippets, a collection of life-changing moments from it are available at reallifepresspub.com.
Snippets featuring writers who are self-published or traditionally published are in preparation. If you are a writer, or represent or publish one, and are interested in making work available, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CHOW CHOW NIPS COP – DOES TIME
You may already have heard about the pup called #Bungle that wandered from the driveway of the family home, got scared, hid under a truck and held up traffic. Police tried to grab it to ‘rescue’ it, and it took a couple of baby-toothed bites and was detained, ‘as evidence’. Over 5,000 people signed an on-line petition for its release and a Facebook group was set up. It only served four days.
The family got their dog back, the officer was treated, but maybe somebody decided to use social media for good rather than hate and that might have made a big difference to someone.
But there are lots of dogs who have changed people’s lives, on the happy side by becoming lifelong companions, or by introducing two lonely people to each other by needing to go walkies.
On the other side an untrained or fight-trained dog may have launched a ferocious attack on a pretty face.
#RealLifePress is creating an eBook featuring 30 stories by people whose lives have been changed by a dog. Each will describe the magic or tragic moment in 250-750 words, say something about themselves and what is now happening as a result of that moment, and some will provide photos or video featuring the dog.
The eBook will be offered for sale and a 50% royalty will be paid. Participants will also have unlimited copies to give away.
The details are available at reallifepresspub.com
If you are interested in telling your life-changing story about a dog or any of the other subjects in the series, or would like to knowwhen the eBook is published, email email@example.com
