    Congratulations Sylviane,
    You must feel relieved. I know what effort writing takes, so thank you for the work you’ve put into helping others understand the craft and what they can to do improve.

    While I have been at it a long time now, I will be glad to see what you’ve written. I view everyone as my teacher. :)

    Have a beautiful week!

      Hi Bill,

      You bet, I’m relieved! that thing was on my shoulders since this past July and it was dragging.

      I hope it can help some people to improve their writing, and those who keep making the same typos over and over as well :)

      I know you’re an accomplished writer, so I’m honored if could learn anything from this eBook :)

      Have a wonderful day!

    This sounds like the exact book I need right now Sylviane.

    Where do I sign up? I can’t see the opt-in form.

    I’d love to be a more confident story teller and to bring back life experience into my biog.

    I’ve written about some stuff like that in the past but kind of lost my way with it.

      Hi Tim,

      Sorry about that Tim. The form is right there on the top of the sidebar, but it seems that Aweber is down for the moment as I’m trying to go to their site and not able to. The coding of my opt-in is right there and it was showing the last time I check, but it’s not showing now. Beats me.

      I get to the bottom of this and let you know when it’s working.

      Hi again Tim,

      The opt-in form is now on. Don’t know what happened. I was on the phone with Adrienne Smith last night and she could see it too. Let me know if you are able to see it now.

      Thanks,
      Sylviane

        Just waiting for the eBook to come through.

        Thanks Sylviane!

        It looks that you got it, didn’t you?

        This opt-in is driving me crazy and it’s acting up this evening again. And gain like yesterday evening I’m trying to login to Aweber and not even their site is coming up. So weird.

    Hi Sylviane!

    Wow..what a relief it is to get this up and running. I’ve been following this blog for a long time and learned so much from you. Now a free Ebook? I’m there!

    You are always teaching us how to write, what to write about, etc. I’m sure this book will improve my writing skills and others. You know I’m going to share this all over the place girl because You Are The BEST!

      Thank you for your kind words and for sharing this with other people who might benefit from it. I hope you’ll enjoy it. Please, let me know. I’m kind of nervous even though it’s free. I don’t like to disappoint :) I hope I won’t.

    Hello Sylvian
    Wow I am proud of you and your completed goal.

    Your article hits home for me, since I am still learning and I find myself still messing up.

    Excellent information and this is a keeper.
    I will download your book and share this post.

    Again, hats off to you!

    What a great collection of info Sylviane!

    I know such things are far more time consuming to write than people imagine, so my hat off to you and congrats!
    I will certainly take a look when I get a bit more time as writing is not my most trained skill! Being in IT and web design does that to you, plus I studied engineering and you know what they say about us – we can’t write :>

    have an awesome week (shared on twitter too!)

    Hey Sylviane,

    Well congratulations on finishing your eBook. I know you’ve been wanting to do this for awhile now.

    I have no doubt it’s packed full of great tips to help those that really need some direction when it comes to writing. I know that for a lot of people this doesn’t come naturally. Heck, it doesn’t come naturally for me either so learning from those who know what the heck they’re doing is key.

    I know it will be a big hit and I know you’re thrilled this is finally behind you now.

    Congratulations.

      Hi Adrienne,

      Thank you for your kind words. Indeed, I’m thrilled that this eBook is now done, so I can concentrate on other things. That unfinished eBook was always on the back of my mind, and it wasn’t fun anymore :)

      I hope it will help some people some.

      Thanks for coming and have a great one.

    Hi Sylviane,

    Sorry for being late this time – have my Dad visiting us for a few days, so things always take a back seat with him around as I prefer spending time with him till he’s around :)

    Congratulations indeed for your new eBook – and trust you to come up with this one with all the goodies in it. I guess being a writer myself I know all this is SO essential, and putting it all down in one place is surely something more people would love to read and learn from.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a nice week ahead :)

      Hi Harleena,

      Of course spending time with family is always more important. Don’t worry you’re not late. On this blog I get comments all throughout the week, so Tuesday is not late :) really.

      I’m glad I finally completed it and can now move to the next thing. I hope that those opting-in for it will enjoy it. That’s the most important thing :)

      Thanks for coming and for your input.

    Congratulations Sylvianne on writing this useful eBook. I’m sure it will help a lot of writers. I sometimes use story telling in my writing but it would be good to learn how to do it properly.

    It looks like you’ve got some wonderful tips in your book. I wanted to download it, but there’s no opt-in form to complete. I think there’s a problem with Aweber.

    Thanks for sharing your book with us. :-)

      Hi June,

      I’m so sorry. I don’t know what’s going on, someone else had the same problem yesterday, and then the opt-in reappeared. It seems that’s a problem with Aweber and like last night not even their site comes up. That’s so weird.

      I will let you know when it up again. A real mystery to me.

      Sorry about that and will keep you updated.

    • Sylviane Nuccio
      February 26, 2014

      Hi Again, June

      Yes, I was confirmed by Aweber this morning that they are having some issues that’s why none of my optins are visible at the moment.

      I’ll be sure to shoot you a quick email when they’ve fixed the problem.

    You’ve really covered a lot of important topics in your book. The blogging world would be a much better place if everyone read your book and paid heed to your advice.

    Like Tim, I don’t see the opt-in in your sidebar but I will check back later to sign up and grab your book. Thanks for offering it for free to your readers!

      Hi Carolyn,

      I’m so sorry for this. This optin is driving me nuts and it seems to happen in the evening (here my time). Right now I can’t even bring Aweber page up. Don’t know what’s going on.

      Thank you for coming and I will let you know when this is fixed. Again, sorry about that.

    Hi Sylviane,

    First, congratulations on your new book! I know how hard it is to get out an eBook and I’m sure this one is really important. After reading your exceprts of what’s in it, I’ve got to opt-in. I’m sure there are some good info because everything you noted is super important to good writing.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and your eBook and again ‘Congrats!’

    Congratulations Sylviane!
    Looks like this is a week of launches! My hosting company launch, then, Donna’s Blogging Magic launch and here you are with your new eBook launch! This is an awesome coincidence!

    Like Bill said, you definitely must feel relieved with this launch in place. And, I know many many people are going to benefit from your eBook because I see people writing all over and making some of the mistakes that you mentioned in this post. And you know what? I am going to download a copy for myself. I sure want to improve my vocabulary and punctuations too. Why not if somebody with your level of experience offers it at no charge! So, Thank you!

    Have a glorious week!

      Hi Kumar,

      My apologies if you couldn’t find that darn opt-in form as many other people did. I was just on the phone with Aweber and it’s due to an issue they’re having. As soon as they get their act together you should be able to see the opt-in and get the eBook.

      Thanks for coming by, and hope you’ll enjoy it!

    Congratulations on your new Ebook. I don’t want to sound stupid but I do not see the opt-in form. I find the hardest thing for me is writing. Just writing my blog has been a challenge. I am now known as the queen of analogies so I guess when you are remembered for something it is a good thing, just like you are for your writing.

      No, you’re not stupid Arleen, it’s that crazy Aweber doing it again :) They are having some issues with their own site which they are fixing for now 3 days. Last time I checked the opt-in was there, I guess by the time you came it was gone again. If you don’t mind to check again later it might be here. It here now :)

      Thank you for coming. Really appreciate that!

    Hey Sylviane,

    I tip my hat off to you for finishing your ebook…Looks like it’s going to have a lot of great information that we all can relate to..

    I’m going to have to download this when I get home tonight. I know I can definitely use some advice on how I can write a lot better. I like the fact that you added the chapter on “Simplifying Your Writing”…. just the other day I had a discussion with one of my friends on simplifying things in general is as opposed to making things more complex. I tell you, it’s harder to simplify which shows how powerful it is!

    Thanks for sharing and you have a fantastic weekend!

    Awesome :)

    I have subscribed, just need to confirm it now.

    Congrats, by the way. I know you have been working on this for a while. The chapters are interesting – especially breaking the rules and putting our personality into writing.

    I am trying to become a better writer, so this will definitely help (Hopefully, I will get to read it soon…and apply the tips).

    The biggest problem I have is with implementing…Sure, I know how to do this or that, but I don’t always follow or implement it (and in the end, I keep wondering why I didn’t achieve the success I expected to achieve).

    Anyways, thank you for sharing this, Sylviane :) Hope you are ready for the weekend!

    Hi Sylviane,

    Wow! Congratulations on your new eBook dear :) Seem enriched with a lot of tips we can make use of. This is an awesome news and kinda surprising gift!

    I feel like you have written it within a short period though it took months to complete and as you previously mentioned you don’t wanna push it too. I’ve been off throughout the week, and glad I could make it finally when you reveal it and learn what’s your new ebook about :) Well, starting with your blog.

    When you mention “decide if it’s for you or not”, I thought this might have been targeted more towards writers than bloggers. But I don’t see any particular reason why bloggers shouldn’t grab it. Guess no one have to decide as it’s targeted towards your audience who are mostly bloggers and writers. Isn’t it Sylviane?

    As I read through titles, I could recall some of your old posts too. You know, like bird nest analogy :) You are really a storyteller.

    BTW do I have to sign up again for your email list dear? Or you have already sent the link as I’m subscribed to your list? I’ll check out my inbox too :)

    I’m really thankful for taking your precious time on creating such a helpful resource for bloggers, Sylviane :) Even as you intended to share it free. Always learning something new about writing from you.

    You have a lovely weekend dear :)

    Cheers…
