ESSENTIAL ENGLISH FOR AUTHORS

Mistakes in your writing are the reason behind a pile of rejection slips. Mistakes that mean editors simply pass over your work, marking you as unprofessional. This e-book, by best-selling author Nick Daws, provides the know how to help you self-edit your manuscript. And, at only $19.95, it's a sure-fire investment.

NOVEL IN A MONTH

Can you imagine writing your own NOVEL?
The THRILL of putting your words onto paper. The EXCITEMENT of receiving your first copy. The KICK at seeing your book featured at a local store. The BUZZ of signing your first copy. But you know what would make it all EVEN BETTER? Getting it all done in just ONE MONTH.
Working as little as 40 MINUTES a DAY! It sounds impossible. But it's not.

Check it out HERE for the SPECIAL DISCOUNTED PRICE of $39.95.

BOOK BACKUP SOFTWARE

Don't leave your files or your manuscript to chance.

Can you IMAGINE turning on your PC one day... Only to find ALL of your work completely GONE?

Your novel. Your non-fiction book. Your screenplay. All totally VANISHED.
Maybe you accidentally deleted your Word document. Perhaps a virus attacked your computer files. Maybe Microsoft Windows simply died on you. Or maybe the documents all just DISAPPEARED. It happens. It's happened to me!

Backup your files everyday to ensure their safety.

You can also try Dropbox.com and get up to 2GB of FREE space.
