Ultimate Cheapskate Hits the Big Show!

Hi Writers,
I wanted to give a shout out to a friend of this blog and frequent WD forumista, Jeff Yeager, aka “The Ultimate Cheapskate.” Jeff will be appearing live on the “Today Show” tomorrow in the 8:00 hour to promote the release of his book The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches: A Practical (and fun) Guide to Enjoying Life More by Spending Less. I’m just guessing here that Jeff will be enlightening the world to his amusingly cheap ways.

Here’s a link to an article Jeff wrote for the October issue of WD on how being cheap can help your writing career (and your sanity). Less is More

Be sure to watch. I’m going to.

Good luck Jeff!

Keep Writing,
psst: Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve offered Jeff five crisp George Washingtons to put in a plug for Writer’s Digest.

    Thanks Maria – and thank you Writer’s Digest and the WD Forum for giving me so much of the information and encouragement it took to get my little book to this point. It’s my first book, and I’m so very proud of it.

    In case you’re wondering, the Today Show segment (along with other publicity, but Today was the biggie)has had an unbelievable effect on my book. For example, prior to yesterday, the book was ranked about 20,000-30,000th in the overall Amazon ratings (no joke). In the hours after the show, the book cracked the Top 50 in overall Amazon ratings, and became – at least briefly – the #1 personal finance book on Amazon. It goes to show the power of publicity, doesn’t it?

    Thanks again, and Stay Cheap!
    -Jeff Yeager

    Follow-up: Jeff was on top of his game on The Today Show this morning. There was a preview of him with a thermos and tote bag stealing food from the Today Show green room. There’s some classic TV for you. 🙂
