Sell your story blog readers might well recall the tragic story of Terri and Tom – they were the young couple killed a few weeks ago in a freak accident. As they walked back from dropping son Morgan at nursery, a lorry load of timber fell on top of them. Both of them died, leaving their beloved son Morgan an orphan.
Diane contacted me for advice on dealing with the media and her story was placed in The Sun newspaper. Her emotional story also made the front cover of Pick Me Up mag.

Now Diane’s story, along with an update on how the family is coping now, is set to appear in a third magazine. Woman’s own magazine, which is out on Tuesday has bought the rights to print the story again. All the money earned from the features is being used to set up a Trust fund for Morgan.

Meanwhile, another Featureworld interviewee’s story – which was previously printed in the Sunday Mirror newspaper – appears this week in real life story weekly mag, WOMAN’S OWN.

Selling a story in multiple deals for an interviewee is one of the main benefits of going through Featureworld rather than selling your story direct to a publication. Not only does it earn you, the interviewee more money – because you are paid each time a story is printed – but it often means just one interview and often just one photoshoot.
