How do I sell my story to the press myself?
If you’re thinking “I want to sell my story to the press – but I’d like to do it myself”, brace yourself for a lot of work. Firstly, you’ll need to find the right journalists and section editors for each newspaper or magazine you want to pitch. But this is trickier than it sounds. Getting their contact details is not easy, and even if you manage to, their inboxes are flooded with emails from press officers daily.
If your email address isn’t recognised by the journalist or editor, there’s a high chance it’ll be deleted too. And if it’s not, you have about five seconds to convince the journalist that your story is worth pursuing. So the pressure is on!
Being a strong writer who knows how to package a compelling story is crucial, but having those key media contacts could make or break your deal.
Should I just sell my story to the press directly?
You could… but the advantages of selling your story with Front Page Story will make you think twice about taking that route:
- Best Price Guarantee: We ensure you receive the best possible price for your story.
- No Fee Deductions: Your entire fee goes directly to you; we don’t take a penny.
- 24/7 Support: Enjoy peace of mind with our round-the-clock assistance.
- Total Control: We prioritize your satisfaction, allowing you to review and approve the content before publication.
- Efficient Press Contacts: With established contacts, we can sell your story to the press swiftly.
Like we said, you could do it yourself, but working with us guarantees more cash, saves you time, and spares you from potential headaches.

I sold my story to the press and got a book deal with Front Page Story!
Sara contacted me and asked me to tell my story to a woman’s magazine. At first I was a bit worried but I felt I could trust her and decided to go ahead. Sara made it possible to sell my story to Love it! Magazine and I was really pleased with the outcome.
Sara was honest, upfront and really caring. She has also helped me get a book deal with a friend of hers, which is out next year. Thanks to Sara I now feel that I can move on in a positive way. And what I like the most is that we keep in regular touch and I know she is always there to help me if I need her.”

I Sold My Story to the Sunday Mirror, That’s Life magazine and This Morning With Front Page Story!
Sara has been really amazing. At first I was a bit uneasy about contacting anyone with a view to selling my story to a magazine. I thought no one would be interested about my bigamist, love rat ex. I left my details on the Front Page Story website and was surprised when Sara Lain contacted me straight away. Sara was so easy to talk to. She told me she would do her best and get me a double magazine deal. She did everything she said she would. She sold my story to the Sunday Mirror and That’s Life magazine, and now, I’m going on This Morning! I have to say, I went from starting off really nervous to having great fun and a great laugh with Sara. The whole experience of selling my story through Sara has been fantastic. She is the best.”
Thank you, Sara!

I sold my story to the press with Front Page Story and secured THREE magazine deals!
After looking on the Internet, I found the Front Page Story agency. I was really, really nervous when I first picked up the phone as I wasn’t sure I even had a story! But Sara listened to me and really put me at ease. I felt comfortable talking to her. I don’t really trust people that much but somehow I knew I could trust Sara. And I was right. We went through my story and eventually it was sold to THREE magazines including abroad in countries like Australia. And as promised I got all the money. Sara got me and Elaine a fantastic deal and we are really happy. I would most definitely recommend using Sara at the Front Page Story agency if you want to seek your story.”

I sold my story to Chat magazine with Front Page Story!
Thank you Sara for looking after my story so wonderfully. I’m a great believer in going on gut instinct and I’m so glad I went with you after our initial telephone call. Chat magazine ran the piece you arranged, and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback. I was nervous and a bit worried that my story might portray me as something of an oddball freak – but I needn’t have worried. The final article had been written sympathetically and with sensitivity. Since publication, the local press have picked up on the story – resulting in more positive coverage. It’s been great working with you!”

I sold my story to the Sunday People and Chat magazine with Front Page Story!
I found the Front Page Story agency on the Internet and contacted Sara on the off chance I might be able to sell my story. I was worried that no one would be interested though as I am in my 70s. I told Sara my story over the phone, she said how lovely it was and agreed to help me sell my story and get it published. A week later my story was a double page spread in the Sunday People and in CHAT Magazine. I got paid the FULL amount I was promised too. I really loved my story, it was so well written and I was at all times treated with total respect. I now and again telephone Sara just for a natter and she is a lways happy to hear from me. I’m so glad that I sold my story through Sara.”
