December is my favorite month of the year. It is the festive season for many, of course. My birthday falls in this month. Winter has always been my favorite season, even more so since I moved to the UK and encountered snow. And let’s not forget, I’m big on goal setting and the New Year is a perfect time to look back at what has been achieved and set sights higher for the coming year.
We’ve had a particularly good year at Khullar Relph headquarters. As many of you know, I retired my husband earlier this year. He’s now a partner in this business. I also finished my first novel, a process that took almost seven years, and we’re currently out on submission. The business has grown, too, and we’ve just hired two new team members. And finally— and this is a big one and a huge relief— my British residency came through, which means that for now anyway, my family gets to stay together over the holidays and we can get on with our lives.
So, to celebrate all of those things and to stay true to our commitment to helping writers learn what they need to in order to earn fantastic incomes and build amazing careers, we’re committing to giving away $10,000 worth of books in the next few months.
These will be books from the series of books I’m currently writing— The Freelance Writer’s Guide series. We’ve published three books already (see them here!) and by the end of the year, I will have finished writing most of the books. We’ve decided, however, that in order to not overwhelm our readers (and ourselves), we’ll be releasing one book a week, at most two. We’re actually using each individual book as a test case so that we can test out different launch strategies and market in different ways to see what gets the best results. Of course, once we have enough data and experience, I will certainly be teaching all that I’m learning from my self-publishing adventures (and there’s a lot!)
But for now, I want to give back to this community of writers that I so love and so, over the next few months starting in December, I’m going to show up randomly on social media and on other blogs and websites and give away hundreds of books to readers.
If you want to have a chance to win the books, make sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I’ll be giving away tons of stuff on my own social media channels, of course, but also dropping hints on where I’ll be next.
Please note: The giveaway will be restricted to one book per person. So if you win one book in the series, you will not be eligible to win any others. This is so that we can help as many people as possible.
I want to see writers make not only a decent living, but a fabulous living doing what they love. That is why I’m writing these books— to share everything I know about the business and the craft— and that is why I’m eager to get them into your hands.
I can’t wait to share these books with you. In the meantime, check out my latest release The Freelance Writer’s Guide to Pitching with Confidence.
