Tracey’s story about how she had an affair and aborted her lover’s baby to save her marriage was originally printed via Featureworld.co.uk in the Daily Mirror newspaper. A battle between several women’s magazines who all wanted to publish a follow up story then ensued.
Finally, it was printed in this week’s issue of Best magazine
The vast majority of stories that come to me via my website are sold not only to a newspaper but also to a magazine. Sometimes stories can also be sold on again to another magazine, to TV or even abroad. This is one reason why it is a good idea to use an agent to sell your story, rather than to sell your story directly to one publication. An agent is able to secure multiple deals – and as interviewees are paid every time their story is sold – the amount of money that can be earned through multiple magazine, newspaper and TV deals can soon add up.
Read about one woman who earned over £4000 from multiple deals for her story here.
And here’s Tracey’s story – this time in Best magazine out this week!
