I would POD...

...if I've been trying to get an agent for over a year but keep getting turned down.
...after my agent has tried with different publishers but tells me the book is unpublishable.
...without trying to find an agent first.
...never!

I'm a published freelance writer.  Started from nowhere and just wouldn't take 'no' for an answer.  Combine writing with being a Mum, Housewife & General Dogsbody!  Have a thriving career which I am really proud of.  Take a look at my website to view some of my press cuttings www.sayersmedia.co.uk  Always happy to help where I can.

Well done, Joanna, & excellent website.

I was wondering how to sell stuff online, hadn't thought of Amazon.
May use Paypal, which only has a 3.4% plus 0.20 per transaction charge.

Many thanks for taking a look at my website - it's always great to get feedback!  The Amazon gift shop thingummy is working really well but it isn't easy to set up, well, not in my experience.  I think Ebay do something similar too but haven't ventured there yet.  Would really like to encourage people to use the guestbook but maybe that's for a different thread.  Thanks again.

ooops, sorry, yes I'll go back and sign it.

PS. It was a little difficult to find. I'd suggest making a feature of it on your home page.

sorry I didn't mean to say you had to sign the guestbook.  It really was just a thought evolving.  Thanks for the tip about resiting the guestbook - can't think why I hadn't thought of it myself, it's a great suggestion.
