    Thanks guys. Claudia - the reason I didn't spot me straight away was because I haven't finished last month's either!

  • Now what would be great - if every reader of WM bought a copy, or at least every member of TB!
  • Took my WM copy to read on the train.
  • Good article Lizy and lovely smiley photo!

  • Thought about buying it this month but it was £5.99 cos a book I didn't want was enclosed with it. So I didnae.

    Decided to spend my pennies instead on a pair of xray specs and a pkt of stink bombs

    I'm so surprised by that! What is Writing Magazine thinking? 'Extras' in magazines are usually freebies... aren't they?

  • Madness.

  • We have to remember that it's the magazine publisher who sets the price.

  • We know it's the publisher – and it's still madness. They will alienate loyal readers that don't necessarily want to subscrible.
  • What is the book about? I find all these magazines very expensive.
  • *squints through xray specs*

    Think it was about getting published. Which probably is of interest to a lot of writers.

    Just not me. At the moment.

    *sets off stink bomb*

    *legs it*
  • Ah. Thank you. Yes, not much use to me, either. Perhaps Lizy can photocopy/photograph/scan it and show us?

    Fancy a stink bomb instead?

    The bumper version with the book is only in some stores, Dora - it is available at regular price elsewhere and we'll happily send you one at regular price if you like.

    We've also made the book available for any subscribers who want a copy, here: https://www.writers-online.co.uk/store/reader-offers/get-your-book-published-her-first-edition/
  • Has it been updated, Webbo? It was first published in 2014 and the industry has changed since then.
  • WebboWebbo
    I believe this is the most current version of it BB - and I can vouch that it's very much still relevant!
  • But it's only available for UK subscribers! :(

    It does sound interesting - especially if it's been undated since the version of Amazon. I'd be interested if it included the changes to KDP that hit indies last year.
