Ever thought, ‘you could write a book on my life’ or ‘I could sell my story as a magazine series’?
Talk to the Press provide a free service to help everyday members of the public share their stories with the national press, and get paid the maximum amount possible. This month, Talk to the Press client Faye Richards saw her story published as a three-part series in that’s life! magazine after she searched online ‘how to sell my story as a magazine series‘.
Faye, 31, has MRKH syndrome – meaning she was born without a womb and cannot fall pregnant, despite always longing to be a mother.
Over the years she watched her younger sister Kim Thomas, 28, fall pregnant and have a son, knowing her only chance of having a baby with husband Tony, 41, meant paying thousands in expenses for a surrogate and IVF. But, in an amazing act of generosity, in 2013 Kim offered to be a surrogate for her sister.
After a gruelling IVF process with many failed attempts, Kim finally fell pregnant in September and baby Ralphie was born in May.
We loved the sisters’ inspirational story – but it had so many twists and turns we knew it would be impossible to squeeze it all into one feature. So we placed it as a three-part series – and Faye received a separate fee for each piece!
If you have a story full of ups and downs, we can place your tale as a series, too – meaning more coverage and a higher fee for your time. That’s more money in your pocket, and more of a chance to help those going through a similar situation.
