Newsletter 16th April 2022: The pandemic finally caught me ☹️

by | Newsletters


I guess it was only a matter of time but I tested positive yesterday and so I’m staying in isolation until I’m not infectious any more.

So far it’s like a severe head cold/mild flu and I keep napping like a cat but it’s also too early to say how it will be in the end.

All in all, it sucks, even getting off lightly as I have so far.

Try not to get it!

On a positive note, I continued my decluttering and finished binge watching Inventing Anna so there’s that.

Then I did some shoe ordering because you can never have too many shoes. 🤣

Maybe, I’ll finally catch up with my email and year end accounts next week as I’m stuck at home.

Anyway, it’s time to bring out my old mantra again “Whatever happens I’ll handle it.”  <sigh!>

I hope you’re having a great Easter weekend and getting out and about. I’ll live vicariously through you!  💖


Book Advertising Mastery

You may have heard me talk about my experience on KDP over the past 10 years mainly as an author of fiction and non-fiction books.

But I’ve always avoided doing ads. They scared the heck out of me, and they seemed so complicated.

Also, I did fine without them, making almost $200k over the ten years I’ve been publishing.

Selling low content books on Amazon is a different kettle of fish though and ads really help kickstart sales in that niche, so now that I’m following my own $3k a month plan (one of my bonus reports see below) I thought I had better get unscared.  🤣

So I picked up Michelle Brubaker’s Book Advertising Mastery Course Series last week as that is totally focused on advertising for low content and I attended the first session of her Amazon Ads training on Thursday.

It was a revelation how simple Michelle made a complicated system.

In less than an hour, I had a set of very easy action steps.

I’ll be doing those steps before the next session as it won’t take me more than a few minutes to follow what Michelle does for every book.

And I can’t wait for the next session.

I also love Michelle’s quality over quantity approach meaning you only create books that are worth advertising.

So much less effort in the long run for much more gain.

If you missed Thursday’s training, you can easily catch up with the replay at this stage and create your own Amazon self publishing success.

You’ll find Michelle’s training here if you want to follow along.

My bonus: If you buy Michelle’s training though my link, choose any two of my bonus reports from the end of this newsletter including my Amazon $3k a month plan if you don’t have it. (More reports coming soon if you have them all 😊 ) 💖💖💖


Not quite everything but you know what I mean.  🤣

Last month it was the Organize Your Digital Life planner; this month the Declutter My Home 30 Day Challenge Planner 

Declutter My Home Planner

The Declutter my Home planner has 40 unique pages, plus two covers and six backgrounds and it’s fully editable in Canva or Powerpoint so you can create something that is uniquely you.

The whole product (no upsells!) is 50% off until Tuesday 19th April midnight Pacific.

Use coupon code DECLUTTER50 to get the discount which makes it just $18.50 (regularly $37)

Take a look at all the details here.


A few people have asked for one of my bonus reports when they bought one of my own products but I haven’t been offering these as I don’t want to compete with my affiliates who like to offer their own bonuses or who maybe don’t have time to make extra bonuses.

So here’s what I’ll do for any sales going forward from today. For my products only, whether you buy through my link or through an affiliate, whenever you spend $17 or more in one transaction, you can also choose a bonus report from the end of this newsletter.  💖💖💖

By the way, there are a few new bonuses in the works. I just have to get them done and out of the works!


secret email

The Secret Email System is one on the best deals on the internet – a real gem and ridiculously good value for $5.60.

Why would Matt Bacak sell it so low?

He hasn’t had a blow to the head that’s for sure.  What he is doing is providing astonishing value for a teeny tiny price by getting people into his system who are interested in his types of products. There’s a huge lesson there for us all. And you can learn a lot by observing what he does not just from the training.

Take a look here and learn!


toddler coloring cash

I was going through Publisher Rocket with a couple of people yesterday showing how to find superb niches in five minutes and toddler coloring books was one of the good topics that came up, though of course the riches are in the sub-niches as usual in a crowded market and not every book will make thousands of dollars a month. Just as well we have tools to find those sub-niches!

If you want to know more about making and selling Toddler Coloring books, get the best manual on that for just $17 right now.

More information on Toddler Coloring Cash

What I like about this niche is that the designs for toddlers are very simple, making these some of the easiest books to make. And they are fun too.

Bonus: Buy Toddler Coloring Cash through my link and choose any one of my bonus reports from the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖


ballet journal

Michelle’s latest product with commercial rights is this pretty journal & planner, perfect for budding prima ballerinas.

The Ballerina’s Journal and Planner has 36 unique pages (including special pages just for ballet lovers) and 5 different backgrounds all made by Michelle. The template is in two sizes, 8.5 x 11 & 8 x 10, editable PowerPoint files.

Use coupon code BALLET to save 45% until April 20th at Midnight making this product just $19.25 instead of the regular $35.

Get all the details and see the video of the pages here

My bonus: If you buy Michelle’s printable set through my link, you can choose any one of my bonus reports from the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖

As I had a lot of requests for various different bonuses, it’s now official that you can choose any one of the recent bonuses when you buy through any of my links marked with a 💖💖💖 in my newsletter on top of any other bonuses mentioned.

This works better for those who already own one or more of these or who want to buy a couple of items.

To claim just send your receipt(s) to me ([email protected]) and let me know which bonus(es) you would like. I’ll verify with the vendor and send them right back to you, usually within a day or so.
