  1. Hi Camy,
    I'm interested to buy "No More Rejections: 50 Secrets to Writing a Manuscript that Sells".

    How do I go about the buying process? Can I pay through paypal?
    I'm in Croatia right now. I'm afraid that this could be sent through UPS or DHL. Let me know if it's possible. If not, that's alright. :)

    You can contact me at joy.filipovic@gmail.com

    Best,

  2. Hi Joy,
    I'm afraid I'm not selling this, it's only through Amazon. This was also a couple years ago so there may not be any more of these copies left. Sorry! You can do a Google search to see if any online bookstores have this book and ship internationally. Most do.
