Recent stories sold to magazines:

To see some people whose stories recently appeared in a women’s magazine, read on …

Best and Real People magazines

Why sell your story to just one magazine when you can appear in two? Allison Noyce’s delightful story about how she gave birth to her gorgeous baby girl after going through the menopause appeared on the cover of Best mag and then over two pages of Real People.  

Cancer was a baby

A mum at last…

Having two deals meant two lovely cuttings to show Sophie when she’s older – and two payments as well!

Getting your story into two magazines is only possible when you go through Featureworld as I am an agent who specialises in gaining you multiple deals. 

Featureworld can often arrange for your story to appear in a newspaper and on TV as well if you wish!

Take a Break and Reveal magazines…

Selling her story via Featureworld meant Joanne Coleman’s emotional story about how her husband died just seven days after their baby girl was born,  appeared in two magazines – she also appeared in the Sunday People newspaper, on ITV This Morning and on the Daily Mail website.


At Featureworld I send your story to all the magazines on the market at once and ask editors to put in their best price. This means I know for sure when we get a deal, that it is the best one. It also means – as with Joanne’s story – that you could appear in Take a Break and Reveal magazine (as well as in a newspaper and on TV if you wish.) But this sort of multiple magazine deal is only available when you sell your story via Featureworld.

Sell My Story to Take a Break magazine?

Why sell a story to one magazine, when you can sell to two? Remember, every time we sell your story to a magazine or newspaper, you are paid.  If, like Joanne, you would like your story to appear in a magazine such as Take a Break and Reveal, then contact us using the form to the right of this page >>>

I’ve spent £30,000 on perfecting my face…

Daniella Ellis wanted to sell a story to raise awareness of Body Dysmorphic Disorder. This is a medical condition where perfectly attractive people wrongly believe they are ugly.

For years Daniella had hated her looks – sometimes she felt so bad, she didn’t want to venture out of the house. It led her to have £30,000 worth of surgery to her face to perfect her looks.

Eventually her condition was diagnosed by a doctor and she has since been officially diagnosed with BDD.

Daniella Ellis - Body Dysmorphic Disorder -

She is now on anti-depressants and awaiting therapy – and thankfully she is at last on the road to recovery.

We placed Daniella’s story in WOMAN magazine and THE SUN ON SUNDAY.

Only aged 18, but my baby has Down’s Syndrome

Paris Taylor - story in Bella magazine

Paris Taylor emailed me to say, “Can you sell my story to show others that teenagers can be good mums?’

Paris was just 18 when she fell pregnant with her steady boyfriend. And, because she was so young, she considered an abortion.

But she bravely decided to have the baby. What no-one imagined was that her baby would be born with Down’s Syndrome.

It was a terrible shock and worse was to come when little Maisy-Anna suffered heart problems and had to be rushed to hospital. Nevertheless, Paris adores being a mum and wouldn’t have her life any other way.

Paris’s story was sold to BELLA magazine and has also been sold to a national newspaper.

She says: “I am so glad I made the decision to sell my story. Seeing my story in the magazine made me realise how much I had gone through. And I hope telling my story will have helped other young mums.”



Earlier in the year, I sold Malissa Jones’ true story about how she lost 20 stones to the News of the World newspaper and Reveal magazine. But when I rang Malissa to see how she was, she confessed, she was very unhappy.

Desperate to save enough money for cosmetic surgery, she asked me, ‘Can you sell my story to a magazine again?’

So Malissa’s new truelife story was resold to glossyCloser magazine where she appeared on theCOVER of this popular women’s weekly magazine.

With Malissa’s consent,It also appeared on the Daily Mail website, Mailonline.

Malissa says: ‘Thank you so much for selling my story yet again to Closer magazine. I was absolutely delighted with another accurate and wellwritten story.’

Malissa’s real life story has now been sold to TV and Malissa will be telling her story in an up and coming TV documentary programme.
