For Potential Affiliates
Your username can be anything you like. Your real name needs to be correct.
On the Affiliate Program, you can enter http://shop.hollylisle.com/ as the URL if you don’t have a website. If you do have one, please enter it accurately. You’ll be able to pick up second-tier affiliates through that link.
If you live in the US, I’ll need your tax and mailing information to be accurate. I’ll mail your tax information annually. If you don’t live in the US, you can just write N/A in the VAT box and anydamnthing you like in the address boxes.
I will not need ANYone’s phone number — put a fake one in.
For EVERYONE: Your PayPal address must be correct. That’s how you’ll get paid.
Your contact email address has to be correct, too. I’ll send out a monthly letter that will let you know what new products we have, and will keep you up with other changes in the program.
None of the information in the affiliate program or the shop will be sold, rented, or given away in any shape, form, or format. I’ll use your PayPal address to either send your products or your money, depending on whether you’re a customer or an affiliate. If you contact me, I’ll use the address you give me to reply. If you’re an affiliate, I’ll send you a monthly update on the program. No one else will have access to your personal information.
Any chance the animated banner could be set to repeat? I put it on the sidebar of my site, and by the time anyone can see it it will be stopped on the last frame.
Also, if you care, there a list of standard banner sizes at http://www.webpencil.com/bannersizes.htm
I’ve only been through four chapters so far in CCC, Holly, but I have to tell you it’s amazing. I had to stop reading it right there so I could develop and implement all the ideas I was getting as I read what you wrote… Thanks to you, one of my semi-major characters now has a story arc more appropriate to his driving need, and it makes my book so much better. And there are all these minor details I’ve been able to add or correct to make my story resonate better within itself – from the first four chapters of CCC alone, I’m able to see how to make my theme drive my story and my characters.
I will write a proper review of CCC once I finish reading it – but I should warn you that it might be a while, because I’m sure I’m going to be stopping a lot along the way to make changes to my book. But rest assured that the review will be a glowing one, because these first four chapters alone have been worth more than what the book cost.
I’m working on it. I’ll let you know when it’s available.
I just finished printing out CCC (as reading long stretches of text on the computer screen is painful), and I’d like to suggest that you find some way to make it available in print format. It’ll be a lot more convenient for your other potential readers who, like me, won’t read books on the computer. I’ve worked with Lulu, and they’re great and free.
