Cool Freebie on Wednesday Writings!


We talk about all things writing here at Gumbo Writer's place on Wednesdays, and today I've got a bonus for you, boys and girls. Fumbling around at Amazon.com the other day, I came upon a free download offer known as an Amazon Short. Ever the skeptic, I said to myself, "Self, is there really anything free these days?"

But owing to my ever-hopeful nature, I decided to check it out. And guess what? The offer really was free. The download focuses on a topic of interest to many of us writerly types -- querying. How exciting is that?

Hop on over to that humongous online bookstore via this link ---> Amazon.com Short and check it out for yourselves. You can download to your computer or have sent to your email inbox the short and sweet little nugget called How to Write a Great Query Letter by Noah Lukeman.

There are 12 customer reviews, and all gave 5-star ratings. Even if you think your query letter is perfect as is, you might find just one more way to spiff it up or a suggestion to help it float to the top of the slush pile. And, did I mention it's f.r.e.e?

As proof of the free-ness of the download, here's my confirmation email:

Details: Order #: D01-4320533-6949913
Subtotal of items: $ 0.00 ------
Total before tax: $ 0.00
Sales Tax: $ 0.00 ------
Total for this Order: $ 0.00

Lemme know how you enjoyed the short if you get it, and I'm hoping your writing projects are going great and not giving you extra headaches.

Now....go.....shoo........whatcha waiting on? :)

I love the internet and all of the things you can learn and do while surfing. What did we do without it?

It's like you climbed inside my head. Neh, not really, but it made me laugh!
