The Literary Journal has thus far sold 55 copies. That's a good number, but we need to sell a lot more than that. A lot more. If it does not, then there will not be another Journal because I don't want to expend all this time, effort, and money once again. Moreover, if it doesn't sell more, then I'm really questioning the value of continuing to run this site.

So, I need your help to make this Journal a success. If you like YWS, then please read the following.

First, buy a copy. Yes it's an e-book, yes you probably have to ask your parents to purchase a copy. But just do it. It's a great read, and at $0.99, a cheap way to support YWS. It doesn't even matter if you don't have a Kindle. Just download the software for your computer or mobile device: http://www.amazon.com/gp/kindle/kcp

Second, tell your friends and family. If everyone got at least one other person to purchase the Journal, sales would go through the roof.

Third, tweet about it or share it on Facebook. If you're in the USA or almost anywhere else, use this link:

If you're in the UK, use this link:

Fourth, post the attached flyer at a library or school. Librarians and teachers love this kind of stuff, so help out by posting the attached flyer on a bulletin board at your school or library!

Some tips for posting a flyer:
    1. Cut along the dotted lines before posting. Then fold the tabs back and forth. This allows for easy ripping.
    2. Tear one of the tabs off yourself before posting. This makes it look like there has already been some interest.

Thank you to everyone who has already bought a copy.

Just linked it on Facebook! I have yet to buy a copy...apparently my computer's too old to support the e-reader, so I have to find a newer one that will. >.<

Thanks Ranger and Kitty!

Lava, that's too bad! If it's a geographical restriction or something like that, let me know. I may be able to do something.

I just flooded this on my facebook, and I have lots of reader friends. I'll hop on my twitter and post it too. I think I still have 100+ followers there. And I'll buy a kindle copy and a nook copy. ;) Just for you!

Posted it to Facebook. Hopefully people respond. It'd make for some sad YWSers if this discontinued. :(

I totally want to buy one, I am just being lazy in getting my gift card from swagbucks... It is on my list of things to do, though!

Nate, No, it's not geographical. It's just that I'm not allowed to use my credit card online.

I put it out on Facebook and got a couple (I know) of buyers. Hopefully it'll spread!
