It’s been a busy week here this week. Between zoom calls every day I’ve been working on new KDP books, planning out the rest of this year, and the start of next year, and working on a new website. But I’m happy to announce that the stickers I offered as a bonus for Mel’s new planners are finally ready and in your Warrior Plus download area for you. I’d still like to add a few more things to the pack, so stay tuned to this space and I’ll update you whenever I add to it.
It was also an interesting week in terms of newsletters and email marketing. I have never been one to send a lot of solo emails, but this week I was so excited about both our launch and about Amy’s Easy Repeat and Sell Designs that I set out two different solo mails. And the results were very interesting – the opens and clicks on the solos outperformed the daily newsletter by about 4.5 to 1
The other thing that surprised me about them was that I actually enjoyed writing them! Having only one or two products in an email gives me a chance to go more in depth into why I like one product over another and give you more examples of how I would use the content or templates instead of trying to cram everything into the one big email.
I know, and you know, that I’ve been saying that I don’t like the laundry list format much anymore, but I’ve been struggling with how to change that. FOMO is a real thing for me, and I hate not being the one to tell you about ALL the goodies! I think the experiments this week have given me a good idea on how to restructure the newsletter so that you get better information from me on why I think something is worth your time to look at.
But, we’ll still keep the Sunday and Wednesday Roundups so I can share all the goodies a couple of times a week!
And on that note, here’s what I have for you this morning…
October Deals End Tomorrow
Tomorrow is the last day to use the coupon code OCTNEW20 to save 20% on the following planners and calendars:
I’ll be adding a new batch of products on Wednesday with more calendars and some patterns as well!

Tools & Training
Let’s Get Digital – Design From Print is Shawn Hansen’s new training. This is over-the-shoulder training that shows you how to create digital versions of made-for-print planners, journals, and notebooks. This is a great way to repurpose all those PowerPoint templates you have in your stash! You also get 3 “Design with Shawn” projects that show you how to use the included templates. There are two options to choose from, along with a bundle option to get both at a reduced price.
Option #1 – Design Foundation to Digital is where Shawn walks you through the whole process from concept to design to finished project.
Option #2 – Fast Track to Digital is the one you want if you have a good foundation already and just want to jump into adding printable content int your digital template.
Both courses are available through November 4 for $97 (no coupon required) or you can grab the bundle option with both for only $127.
Money on the Fly is a free pre-recorded training for you from Alice Seba. And she’s giving you PLR rights to it as well. The training teaches you how to leverage the power of the internet to create quick cash for anything you or your customers need it for. You get the full class recordings, transcripts, and slides.
New Training from Marian – A Life of Their Own – is all about text and fonts and using it to make word art, monograms, and more using Inkscape. There are over 35 videos in the training and they’re done in Marian’s “bite sized” style that she’s become known for. That means most of her videos are around 5 minutes long, making it easy to watch the video and then do the steps. I haven’t seen this one yet, but I’ll be buying it for myself while it’s on sale this week.
New Training: Quick Class-Based Memberships is Angela Wills’ newest training on creating a membership based on teaching live classes. It’s not for everyone, but if you like doing live training I think you’ll really like her take on creating a membership. The course is going to be taught over 6 weeks starting November 8 and ending December 13.
There are 4 modules in total, and you’ll get the live training, recordings, a printable version of each presentation, 3 months of accountability challenges (these have helped me immensely). And, if you get your course created and launched within 3 weeks of the end of the program, Angela will promote you as part of her course graduate class!
Ends Tomorrow! Affinity Training on Sale! Catherine is celebrating the first anniversary of her flagship Create Printables in Affinity training through the month of October. You can choose from either the single course or the Affinity Course Bundle and save $30 with code ANNIVERSARY.
The bundle includes 4 courses:
- Affinity Publisher Basics
- Affinity Designer Basics
- Using Affinity Publisher for Low Content Books
- Create Printables in Affinity
Catherine is my go-to person for all things Affinity, and I have all of these courses (and have used them!)
Ez Pub Profits is a guide for KDP publishers that shares research, trending topics, holidays, and product interiors that you can use to create books for KDP. They work 2 months out, so this month’s guide covers topics to publish in December. It’s one of my must have purchases every month, and a steal at only $10. I actually just upgraded to the VIP option in order to get extra things like video walkthroughs and keyword reports.
Low Content Intel is the monthly low-content report from Amy Smereck where she researches a different type of low content category every month. This is another of my go-to research tools every month, and the October issue on Journals is now available.

What’s Coming Next Week
After the huge number of new releases this week, it looks like next week is going to be a little slower. I’ll have a full list of all the month-end deals ending tomorrow for you, but I don’t think I have anything new on the calendar. On Tuesday, Jenn will open the doors to her Monthly Printables Club for 7 days, and she’ll also have new content available on her Passion for PLR site as well. Gabby’s Transforming Lives Bundle starts on Tuesday, and on Thursday, the Addicted to Planning Bundle starts.
Other new releases that I know of this week include new content from Piggy Makes Bank on Tuesday, and Thrive Anywhere and Ekit Hub on Thursday. And that’s all I know about so far.
As well on Tuesday, there will be a lot of new membership content added since it’s the first of the month.
As for me, the 2023 Planners launch ends on Tuesday, and I’ll have a new set of products into the shop for you by Wednesday. They’re all ready to go, I just have to make the sales pages for them. But since I use Thrive Architect and have a template they’re pretty easy to set up now. As well, I’ve got a couple of zooms this week – on Wednesday is the monthly call for Coloring Patterns Monthly members. In addition to answering questions, we’re going to talk about how to use the patterns with Amy’s training. And then on Friday is the bonus call for Amy’s training itself. And somewhere in there I’ll be getting stuff ready for a new Diva event (details to come), my Black Friday deal and getting ready for the live workshops in December.
All in all, it’s just another week in Ruthie’s world! Oh, and I joined an “old lady fitness class” that my chiropractor is offering and that starts tomorrow morning!
That’s all I have for now. I’m off to start uploading the sticker packs and grab some breakfast.
Have an amazing day! Create what makes your heart happy!
