See savings update at the end of this post.

Time flies when you’re having fun, or so they say. And yes, I know I speak for both Matilda and myself when I tell you that we’re proof of the old adage. We’ve been friends and business associates for 30 years, and all these years later our relationship remains fresh and fruitful. In truth, we’re doing some of our best work together, ever. But rather than recount our story, I’d like to invite you to listen to the short audio Matilda and I prepared for this occasion.

The details of how we first met is part our story. It’s part of our legacy and the lesson we have to share: taking chances on people and learning from one another. We still learn from each other almost every day. I think that’s particularly significant in a world that so often appears polarized because for all our compatibility we are very different people: We’re from different generations and have opposing political views. I’m an easterner; Matilda’s a westerner. Matilda’s married with children; I’m single, no kids. What we are is complementary and respectful of our differences. I think that’s a lesson worth sharing.

But This Blog Is About You

Are you ready for another old saying? It’s better to give than receive, and we agree. Therefore we’re using our 30th anniversary as our excuse to make it very easy for everyone who has ever wanted to tell their stories and share their legacies to do so.21-Steps-promo1-small Our gift to you is our popular 5-DVD set The [Essential] Women’s Memoir Writing Workshop: 21 Steps from Planning to Publication. We’re selling it, not for the regular price of $132 or even the holiday special price of $99. For one week, we’re selling it for just 30 percent of the regular price…$39.

Matilda and I are fortunate to have such a great legacy in our friendship and business partnership. But we’re not alone. Every one of you has a story and a legacy. I hope you’ll let us help you express yours…starting today.

P.S. Here’s a short video Matilda put together in her hotel room this holiday weekend. She’s been traveling in Oregon visiting family and friends but that didn’t keep her from being creative. Enjoy!

Update: People have started buying two copies at the Anniversary Sale Price…one for themselves and one for a fellow writer. We thought that was a great idea and have put in a “two-for” price. Buy two copies and save $15.

Totally amazing. Can’t wait to meet both of you in Austin in February. Congratulations!

Hi Karen:

Thanks. Kendra and I have had a wonderful relationship during these past 30 years. Beginning with our first editing/writing projects in 1979, we learned to trust the other person. We’re so pleased to be able to celebrate this 30th anniversary with this incredible sale on our successful DVD product. We know it works and we are eager to share our workshop with women who want to work on their memoirs.
PS We will see you soon — Story Circle Network’s Stories from the Heart Writing Conference in Austin — February 5-7.

My box set of 5 DVDs arrived yesterday. I could hardly wait to get started, but had dinner to fix last night. This morning, I put the first DVD in my computer and “joined your class.” What a great start. You made me feel like I was part of a class with wonderful women. I can hardly wait to start Lesson 2.
Thanks so much.

I only just saw this post…do I still have time to order a copy of your memoir writing workshop?

kendra December 4, 2009 at

Matty, yes you certainly have time. In fact, we’re going to continue our Anniversary Sale for another week. We’ve had orders from writers who decided to buy a second copy for a writer friend. That got us thinking, and we decided to take $15 off the second copy and make that available for another week.

Thanks for your question, Matty.
