How many times can you sell your story?

When married mum of two Angela almost halved her body weight using a gastric band, she came to me to sell the story about her successful weight loss. Her real life story then appeared in Take a Break magazine. That was almost five years ago and since then a lot has happened in Angela’s life…
Three years after selling her first story about her weight loss, her gastric band went wrong. It no longer worked and Angela grew fatter again. Angela’s story was then told in the Good Health section of the Daily Mail where she discussed whether having a gastric band had been worth it.
After that, Angela’s story was placed in glossy magazine New. Needless to say Angela was always happy with the stories I wrote for her and as with many interviewees, she always said if she had any other story to sell then she would come back. So, we always stayed in touch. Fast forward two more years and there is a new and incredible twist to Angela’s story. Which is due to be revealed in real life magazine Bella in the next few weeks…
Watch this space…!
Angela is one of the great many interviewees who choose not only to sell their story with but also choose to return time and again to sell their story (and often years later!) This is because they know that not only are they always paid on time but that by selling their story via me, it will always be told as I’ve said it would be.
