li_brand_300dpi3 An International Publisher has requested ME AND HER: a Memoir of Madness , discovering me via Linked in. He is considering me right now for publication.

Linked |in|, professional networking platform has jump started my writing career, offering me amazing writing and publishing opportunities.

Last year Tim Sharp director of  The Happiness Institute discovered me on Linked in, requesting I write an article for their eNewsletter, circulating to 12K … These are just some of the extraordinary doors that have opened for me.

I’m now connected to over 600 direct contacts, my network reaching out to a possible 5 million people ….  Most of my new friends are writers, editors, publishers or supporters.

How did I secure MAXIMUM results for the least amount of effort?

I’m sharing my personal Secrets for Success … Here’s what you do …
