WHAT HAPPENS TO MY STORY?
FILL IN THE FORM
Simply fill in the 'Sell My Story' form with your contact details and summary of your real life story, or EMAIL us an outline of your story with photos or video. Then all you need to do is sit tight - we won't keep you waiting long - while Tell and Sell Stories determines whether you have the potential to earn money from your story. We will tell you whether your story, photos or video suits the national newspapers, magazines and/or TV before asking you for further details.
WE'LL PITCH YOUR STORY
After speaking to you, we will send the details of your story to newspapers, magazines and TV. If they are able to publish your story, they will tell us how much money they can offer you, and we will then pass this information on to you. We will negotiate the BEST DEAL possible for you. If more than one newspaper or magazine is able to publish your story, they may enter into a bidding process - and your story will usually end up going to the publication that has offered the most money.
YOUR STORY IS PUBLISHED
We will write up your story to its full length and send it to the publication. We can check it with you before sending if you so wish. The publication or broadcaster might call or email you to ask for any extra details they might need.
YOU GET PAID
After publication, you will receive your payment! Tell and Sell Stories will also endeavor to get your story printed in a second publication if you so wish, meaning you could expect a further payment. In some cases, TV programmes such as Good Morning Britain or This Morning might like you to appear on their show - we will of course check you are happy to do this first. And if you've ever fancied becoming an author, there might even a book deal on the table for you!
