I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to you and to all that sponsor and promote our magazine!
The purpose of this newsletter is to keep you up to speed of our endeavors, inform you of the latest magazine developments and to extend some useful tips.
Our focus remains unchanged: To provide reputable, published authors AND aspiring writers the best possible opportunities to get read, published, and sell (more) books. Your sustained support and brilliant feedback motivates us never to stray from this path.
Exposure is key
In our magazine your original stories, articles and expertise may be exposed to hundreds of thousands or even millions of people, rather than waiting passively for someone to syndicate it on yet another website, Facebook, Twitter or Google+ page with no traffic.
This free account gives authors full exposure of their submitted work. Every post gets edited and formatted, with carefully chosen or created visuals, in the same fashion as we handle a post from a VIP member.
We’ve added exposure to additional social media for our VIPs, most importantly: Pinterest, Tumblr and Google+
NEW: Publisher Account
We added more spice to our magazine, and inspired by the continued requests of several publishers, we decided to add a Publisher Account to our program. This membership enables Publishers to take advantage of promoting their authors and their company simultaneously, as a package. Author profiles and book sale info are placed in post footer. Publisher accounts are entitled to have a rotating ad on our homepage for the duration of the membership.
Author of the Month
The winner of this prestigious monthly contest receives, in addition to the extra media exposure, a rotating, graphic advertisement on all inner pages of the magazine. Our Graphic dpt. will create and place the ad according to the winner’s request. Join me in congratulating last month’s contest winner Cynthia Metcalf Miller!
How do you stand to profit?
Now, more than ever, we provide massive exposure for your submitted work. An increasing amount of Publishing Houses and Literary Agencies is joining our ranks, meaning even more exposure and opportunities for you and your work. We shall give them a voice in our coming newsletters.
What can you do yourself to boost your work and writing vocation?
Your own marketing efforts should include the placing of links to your work on Angie’s DIARY on your own blogs, websites and social media. Check here if you would like to use one of our banners.
Every writer takes pride in her/his work, and giving critiques and commenting on your colleagues’ work in our magazine, will be very much appreciated and almost certainly be reciprocated.
Ad space and links

Talented but broke?
Waiving all objections from “experts” in the business, staff members and colleagues, I’ve decided to give a VIP upgrade to a limited amount of registered users that find themselves (temporarily) in dire straits. This will not happen automatically. You’ll have to come forward and convince us of your legitimate claim in order to be considered for this upgrade, using this application form and this password: FREEVIP3. In case your claim is accepted, we do expect an even higher level of involvement with the magazine, and a strong engagement for writing critiques and commenting on your colleagues’ work (in addition to being prolific in your quality submissions.)
