Newsletter 14th November 2021: Guess what I bought!

by | Newsletters


You know, how I was saying that I was jealous of all the naughty elf fun that kids and parents have these days because we didn’t have such a thing when me or my kids were small…

Well, I bought my own elf this weekend¬†ūü§£

I’m just a big kid at heart LOL

Now he’s on the shelf in my office beside books I never crack open. (What do you mean, you can tell? lol)¬†But I’m not going to do the footprints in the butter and leaving fake poop around the place shenanigans. That would be going too far. ūüėä

Anyway in honor of adopting my own elf, I cracked open the launch codes again for the naughty elf Christmas planner and extension kit. So if you missed them, take a look here and use coupon code XMASDEAL on the planner to get it for $12.95 or XMASELF on the planner and extension kit bundle and get them both for $19.95.

If you’re looking for¬†today’s freebie¬†and you’re not remotely interested in me and my elf, or elves in general,¬†it’s down below!

New Affinity Training

So many of you got a lot out of Jayne’s training on Affinity Publisher and now she has launched her course on¬†Affinity Designer with over 55 bite-sized step by step¬†training videos.¬† This is the one you need to create your own graphics and illustrations for professional-looking low content books from beginner through intermediate level.

If you’re not sure what you can do with Designer, Jayne shows you how to create stickers, washi tape and also the holy grail for coloring books – how to trace images and photos so you’re never stuck for designs as there are so many free sources for these. You can use¬†your own photos too.

If you want to start using the Affinity suite, especially if you’ve bought it but haven’t cracked it open yet,¬†grab this course¬†while it’s just¬†$47 during the launch period. (The price rises to $87 on the 19th.)

Ends TODAY : Q4 Full Color Profits Challenge

If you want to start publishing on Amazon but you’re not sure how to get started¬†join Julie’s Q4 challenge¬†this year. It kicks off next week!

Every Q4, she starts a new set of people off publishing their Amazon low content books, and I’ve gotten a lot out of her challenge in past years. But¬†this year it’s going to be extra special as she’s covering color printing which I’ve been experimenting with over on the Zon.¬†Amazon KDP is going to be a big focus for me next year.

Color printing on Amazon KDP¬†used to be prohibitively expensive, but you can now do it at pocket money prices. That’s super exciting for those of us who want to create colorful low content books.

That’s because pretty sells!

And if you publish once, you can reap the benefits for years.

Doors close at midnight Eastern on November 14th ready for starting on 15th. That’s tomorrow!

If you follow daily, you’ll have a book within a couple of weeks. And have a lot of fun too if past challenges are anything to go by.

Bonus:¬†If you join the challenge¬†through my link, send me your receipt at jan@simplehappiness.biz and I’ll give you a $40 coupon to spend¬†in my store.

Today’s Freebie

Here’s your daily planner freebie with commercial rights.

This one is an undated monthly page that is useful in so many different planners.

As a thank you for reading, there’ll be a new freebie printable in my newsletter every day for the rest of November. All are in a coordinating design created specially for this series so they form a set.

You will be able to mix and match the individual printables to create a fantastic product.

They also come with Powerpoint and Canva templates so you can use your own designs if you wish. And you’ll get PLR commercial rights to sell or give the printables away.

Remember each one will disappear at midnight Pacific (or more likely when I get around to it the next day!)

Great course on rare sale…

I love¬†Michelle’s Passive Income Planner Girl course¬†because it has everything you need to build a business on Etsy and then teaches you how to take it way beyond that to increase the value of everything you make.

And the whole emphasis is on building quality, meaningful, and beautiful products as the cornerstone of your business.

Not churning out ugly pages that no one is going to buy.

It’s not a cheap course, but it’s lower in price than many of the courses we see these days, and¬†it’s worth every penny even at full price.

And at 50% off, it’s well worth the investment.¬†I paid full price for this one and don’t regret it!

Get more details here. And use code HOLIDAYSALE to make it half price.

And there’s a bonus from me, too. If you buy the course through my link, send your receipt to me at¬†jan@simplehappiness.biz and I’ll verify your purchase and¬†send you a $70 voucher to spend¬†in my store.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend (if you’re reading this on Sunday),¬†and I’ll catch you soon with more tips, freebies, and some offers but only the ones I personally think are great value and know the quality to be good.





P.S.¬†‚̧ԳŹ It’s the last weekend of the Winter Bucket List launch. Grab it while the price is just $9.95.¬†Take a look at all you get here.¬†And then use it to scoop up subscribers and sales.

Also, the Content Creation Collection Toolbox has re-opened for just a few days. Over $1300 worth of great products for a fraction of the cost.
