High-Fiving a Million Angels: It’s Launch Day for ‘Everybody Writes’

The sound you hear is Tina Fey high-fiving a million angels… because it’s launch day for Everybody Writes!

High fiving a million angels


Good writing helps good marketers become great marketers.

And today, the book is finally in stock at the bookseller of your choice.

Which means the sound you might also hear is thousand book spines being cracked open for the first time.

(I love that sound. Whether it’s my book or not.)

Find it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, KindleNook, and the local bookseller of your choice.

And I suppose you can also find it at your local library or bookmobile… as well as back-alley black market, bootleg site, or wherever books are available, traded, or sold. Not that I recommend black market or bootleggers.

Everybody WritesEverybody Writes is your practical go-to guide—your map to the most important and useful guideposts on the path toward better writing and non-mediocre content.

And, more important, it’s useful and approachable and (I think) fun to read.

Pop quiz: Who needs a book on writing that feels as heavy as a swimming pool filled with wet cement?

Answer: Not you.

Last week at Content Marketing World, someone asked me whether every marketing team should have a dedicated “content person.”

I have a different take. I believe every marketer should be a “content person,” period.

In other words, every marketer should be able to write with clarity, brevity, and utility—just as every contractor who showed up to work on my Tiny Office could wield a hammer. I believe this:

Becoming a good writer will help make you a great marketer.

So I wrote this book to help you become that marketer.

If you buy it by midnight tonight (9/15/14) and send your receipt to preorders (at), you’ll get some sweet swag in the mail in about a week or so.

Also, you’ll get my warm appreciation, sincere thanks, and your own loud high-five slap when I see you.

If you are at HubSpot’s Inbound 2014 tomorrow, Tuesday, September 16th, I’ll be signing some of the first copies there at 6 PM during the Happy Hour.

Oddly, they have me set up near the bar. Not sure who made that call… but clearly that person at HubSpot knows me well.

I’m grateful to friends and colleagues who are helping to spread the word about the lovefest between marketing and writing.

Check out a few interviews, excerpts, and more about why being a good writer will make you a great marketer:

…and to all of you, too: Big thanks.

    Also, I’ve listened to your podcast interview with Mitch Joel at least 5 times since Mitch published it on his site. That’s a great interview with so many writing gems from your hard-won experience. More importantly, that interview captures so much about you as the thoughtful, funny, generous person that is Ann Handley.

    Cheers to you! How I wish I was there with you, Mitch, David, and scores of other folks during today’s Happy Hour. #Jealous 😉

    Before the book goes to paperback: you should know that there are three embarrassing typos from pages 11 to 13.

    p. 11 – used quote of Coates and did not attribute [sic] to his misuse of “then” instead of “than”.

    p. 12 – paragraph topic sentence referring to Patel and Aragon is missing a “k” from the word “thank”.

    p. 13 – misspelled MacGyver.

    hope this helps.
