Price Drop – Revise Your Novel in a Month

jillandmarthaSince, agent Jill Corcoran is such a good marketer, I am sure most of you already know about the video series that author of the PLOT WHISPERER, Martha Alderson and literary agent Jill Corcoran released three months ago.

You can watch the first video in the series for free, which I did last week. It was very good and since I watched it, I’ve been wondering how I could come up with the money to rent the rest of the series.

Today, Martha and Jill lowered the price to $75.00 to rent the 8 part series for a whole year, so now I can afford to buy the series and learn from what they have put together.

If you are a picture book writer, they even have something for you. You can pre-order: How to Write & Sell A Picture Book- Pre-Order and SAVE $25 https://vimeo.com/ondemand/writesellpicturebook

  1. I saw the first part yesterday and I learned a lot. Much more affordable at the lower price!

  2. I DO believe this is somewhere in my future🙂 Thanks for the reminder, Kathy!

  3. Such an amazing deal on a great product. I purchased it as soon as the price dropped into my budget. My Netflix queue is going to have to wait while I watch these videos, instead!
    As an added bonus, Jill and Martha have also mentioned starting a private facebook group to support those who have purchased the videos. I can’t tell you how excited I am about that!

  4. Thanks for all your efforts that you have put in this. Very interesting info.
