E-Book Testimonials

"Thomas Clifford has made something useful here. This report will give you some really catchy, useful ideas.

It made me reconsider how I do what I do, so you might give it a look-see, too!" 

Chris Brogan, President, Human Business Works 


"Tom Clifford is by trade a filmmaker. For most of his life, he rarely wrote anything longer than a brief comment in the margin of a script. 

Now, though, he's producing tens of thousands of words a year, first as a Fast Company "Expert Blogger," and then as a writer for the Content Marketing Institute. 

How did Tom go from a non-writer to a prolific and much-read one? His eBook, '5 (Ridiculously Simple) Ways . . . , ' holds some of his secrets."

Mark Levy, Author of "Accidental Genius: Using Writing to Generate your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content"


“Tom is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet—if you have the privilege to meet him. And he does sterling work as well. But don’t just take my word for it.

Read this free report and you’ll not just love its tone and content, but learn a lot as well.”

Sean D’Souza, Psychotactics.com


“Anyone who wants to improve their writing needs this e-book. A lot of ebooks are short because they just don’t have much substance to offer. They’re not worth your time (and so are many of the long ones, too, for that matter). Tom’s is short because he’s so good at giving you only what you need to know. 

‘5 (Ridiculously Simple) Ways to Write Faster, Better, Easier’ lives up to its promise by example as well as in the words themselves. Tom used the very same techniques he teaches you to write this book. 

And what’s in here is not just a rehash of the same tired ideas you find coming from people who have suddenly fancied themselves as writing gurus. There are tricks in here I never heard of (like the Writing Funnel) and some I had forgotten about and was glad to be reminded of (like Sporadic Writing).” 

Michael Martine, Blog Alchemist, Remarkablogger.com

Story.

Seems like the more things change, the more some things stay the same.

Story. Beyond formats. Beyond time.

Is 2008 the year for you to "remarkabalize" your story?

Great post. Makes you wonder where the story will come from in the future if it is all online only.

Well, I suspect there will always be "something" to capture the story. Perhaps it will become a matter of which types of stories will be more meaningful and important as time moves on.

Thanks, Kevin for dropping by. Now you got -ME- thinking :-)

Shakespeare, Aristophanes, Homer; It's always been story, even before there was a format.

Tom, you also forgot. Wire, grammaphone, 78, 33, 45, cassette, 8 track, CD, ipod, protools, etc. In the music world it's all about the song. Paperback Writer being played off a old Radio Shack cassette deck through a bullhorn is still better than a Britney Spears concert in 5.1! Don't bore us, get to the chorus...
