New CD from WD

My workday is pretty standard: I spend 95% of it writing/editing and 5% trying to convince Maria to put my face on the next issue's cover, to which she always says no. So when she asked me to post about our new CD, I wasn't sure if I was the right pitchman for the job. I'll let you be the judge:

All of our blood, sweat and ink from 2007 have been put together on one disc—yes, one disc—that's now up for purchase. The Writer's Digest 2007 Compilation CD is filled with all six issues from last year, including the WD Interviews, software guide and, most important, my Q&Q column! How could you pass on that? Now I could continue to entice you with all the other can't-miss material on the disc, but instead I'm going to show you a video of the staff giving it an unprecedented rating of 5 thumbs up:

So take a minute to swing by our site to pick up your copy of The Writer's Digest 2007 Compilation CD. And, if you'd be so kind, ask Maria to put me on the cover. The more comments below, the better.

Take care of yourself and your writing,
Brian
