We're doing something very special this week. We're discounting one of our popular resources on writing to all our fans, but here's the catch: We want your help! We're asking all our Facebook fans to vote on which one of these titles they would like to see discounted for $5. Then, on Friday, June 22, we'll slash the price of the winner down to $5 for the weekend. Simple as that. Here's how to vote.
