Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
Although book sales in general have not fared so well lately, Publisher’s Weekly has called pet books “bulletproof even in a down market.” Pets live in two out of three American homes, inspiring “pet parents” and animal experts to write about four-legged family members Now best-selling, award-winning Angel Animals series authors and writing instructors, Allen and Linda Anderson, have organized over twenty years of experience writing about pets into a comprehensive, downloadable course. They share trade secrets and practical techniques in Woof, Meow, Write, Publish: Writing about Pets and Animals for Love and Money. More information, endorsements for the course, and an easy process for getting started in the exciting field of pet writing are at the course’s website. (Published by Angel Animals Network, 2011, $97.00. Manual: 150 pages; Workbook, 112 pages; Audio Recording, 10 minutes. Available worldwide online.)
Allen Anderson says, “We think others could enjoy and profit from the fulfilling writing my wife Linda and I have been fortunate to do together. People can’t find this course’s materials in any other books or articles. That’s because writing about pets is unique with its own rewards, challenges, and obstacles.”
The Andersons have professionally designed their pet writing, publishing, and marketing systems in an easy-to-follow, three-part course that serves as entry into the $50 billion pet product and service industry. The course’s manual, with eighteen modules of detailed, step-by-step instructions, empowers people to write and publish pet memoirs, essays, personal experience stories, novels, nonfiction books, and articles. A comprehensive workbook includes techniques, exercises, and prompts for having fun while honing the skills and craft of communicating ideas, observations, and emotions to others. “Straight Talk about Pet Writing” offers a ten-minute audio recording in which the authors use humor and straightforward suggestions that draw upon their years of teaching and coaching writers to achieve writing goals.
“Pet writers and speakers get to connect with others who love animals as much as they do,” says Linda Anderson. “If they have a pet product or service to sell, pet writing puts them in touch with their market. Good pet writing is always in demand, because animals are an integral part of most of our lives. Writing is also healing and therapeutic while honoring the loss of a beloved animal companion.”
People are passionate about caring for and giving respect to animals. It’s in a writer’s best interests to be aware of the hot button issues in animal welfare. That’s one of the reasons why the Andersons believe in the importance of taking their professionally designed writing course that addresses issues specific to pets and animals.
