Praise for Paul Krupin’s Trash Proof News Releases
In Trash Proof, Paul Krupin once again displays his unique ability to cut through the fluff and provide actionable advice right from page one. This book goes way beyond the competition. I would recommend it for the novice through the experienced publicist, to the “do-it-yourselfer”. There’s something valuable here for everyone.
– Barbara Kimmel, Publisher and Publicist
Wow! A results-only guide to getting free coverage in the media. This is the BEST book on the subject out there! The examples are priceless!
– Joe Vitale, author “The Attractor Factor”, and many other books
Updating his classic “Trash-Proof News Releases” for the Internet era, Krupin once again provides extremely useful guidance (successful press release formulas, journalist interviews, and plenty of examples) useful to both novice and experienced seekers of media coverage–including do-it-yourselfers who don’t do PR for a living.
– Shel Horowitz, author of Grassroots Marketing for Authors and Publishers and other books

Essential English for Authors is a guide for anyone who hopes to write for publication but is afraid their English will let them down. It is written for both native English speakers and those for whom English is a second language.
Essential English for Authors aims to bring anyone’s written English up to a publishable standard in the shortest time possible. It covers all the common problem areas for new writers, and is designed to ensure that their work is taken seriously by editors, publishers and agents, and not immediately rejected due to faulty grammar and punctuation.
Essential English for Authors is a book that delivers exactly what it says in the title. I couldn’t believe the amount of knowledge I picked up in just the first few pages. I’ve been a writer for over 10 years and I thought I knew everything there was to know about writing. But Essential English for Authors has really opened my eyes. I plan to read it many more times because it’s become my Bible for the English language!

Mel McIntyre, author & copywriter – www.topcopyguy.com
English is a quirky language! And sometimes you can write a sentence ten different ways. Get it wrong, and you’re never going to get published. Nick’s course removes ALL of the confusion. I run a writing consultancy and see these errors all the time. Read this course & find out how to fix ‘em!
