About These Documents
Helpful charts, templates, and worksheets to keep any writer organized from creation through publication! Free for anyone who wants to use them. More documents are added periodically, so please check back soon. Requests? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About The Author
I offer these documents for free, but if you’ve found them useful and can give a small amount to support the author, donations are much appreciated! One or two dollars means more than you know. But don’t feel bad if you can’t spare the change right now; a kind comment or a note to let me know if the resources have helped you is always a wonderful thank you. 🙂
Donations are accepted through PayPal, which means your transaction will always be safe and secure. You can use your existing PayPal account, your bank account, or any major credit card. You fill in the amount you’d like to give; simply type in desired donation in the field labeled “Item Price” and click “Update.” Please note: you do not have to do a separate donation for each document. If you’d like to download 10 documents and give $2 for each, you can make a one-time donation of $20.
About Copyright and Sharing
All documents are © Annie Neugebauer. These documents are intended for personal use only. Copyright applies. Please ask permission for anything other than personal use.
I love to have my resources shared, but website traffic and the occasional donation are all I get out of providing these, so please don’t take my documents and post them on your own website. And rather than emailing the documents themselves to writers you know, please send them the link so they can come download them from me. Thank you all so much for your support!
