In A WRITER'S GUIDE TO MAGAZINE ARTICLES FOR BOOK PROMOTION AND PROFIT, Patricia Fry provides a candid, insightful resource that any writer targeting magazine writing will find useful. With clarity and knowledge gleaned from over 27 years in the article-writing field, Fry teaches the skills necessary to become a success.
As the Senior Editor for WordWeaving, I receive many excellent writing related resources for review. Yet I found Fry's tool different from other resources for several reasons.
First, although most writers seem aware that reviews are important to publicize their books, A WRITER'S GUIDE TO MAGAZINE ARTICLES FOR BOOK PROMOTION AND PROFIT is the first resource I have seen that directly discusses the advantages of requesting book reviews and what to include in a review request.
Second, I like her tip sections. For example, in the section regarding book reviews, Fry includes the following tip: "Start by building your portfolio of reviews locally. The hometown newspaper is generally eager for news of local authors." Not only is this not a tip I have seen repeated in every book I read about writing, but it also is something that applies to both epublishing and traditional paper publishing.
Finally, Fry also addresses many other extremely relevant topics with a brief, no-nonsense approach that will have writers motivated to begin before turning the last page. And she cautions against many of the same mistakes I see crossing my desk such as not including a social security number.
WordWeaving always looks for fresh articles for publication and is pleased to give authors space to mention their books, yet I see very few authors that take advantage of this unique vehicle for promotion. Therefore, I strongly encourage any author in the epublishing or traditional publishing business to read Fry's A WRITER'S GUIDE TO MAGAZINE ARTICLES FOR BOOK PROMOTION AND PROFIT.

Patricia Fry's book on writing is quite simply one of the most practical books on the subject I've ever read. What makes it so unique is that Ms. Fry packs into 66 pages what many books on the subject fail to shed light on in several times as many pages! Ms. Fry gives hands-on, approachable advice on a number of pertinent matters that freelance and wannabe freelance writers take to heart: finding article ideas, self-promotion, selling rights, and handling rejection. Clearly the tips she shares with readers have worked for her, as she has made her living as a freelance writer for years.

Magazine articles are a great way to get started toward your book. By writing these shorter pieces, you will advance your writing style, bank a reservoir of material and develop a readership or following. My first book took eight years (The Parachute Manual, 590 pages, 8.5 x 11, 2,000 illustrations) off and on (mostly off) as I wrote a column for Parachutist magazine. The articles were poured into the book's manuscript.
This book covers the writing life, how to research and write the article, the business of writing and the most important part: how to sell your article. There is no need to buy a larger book at a higher price when Patricia Fry delivers more for less. DanPoynter@ParaPublishing.com. D-454.
