About / FAQ

If you’re smart (and you are), you have a lot of questions about Newsletter Ninja. So let’s see if we can get some of them out of the way.

Who are you?
My name is Tammi Labrecque, and I’m an indie author, editor, and publisher. I write and publish my own books under a couple of pen names, and freelance in every related field, from plot doctoring to editing to ads management. I’ve been writing since I was a tween, was traditionally published in the olden days (the 90s), and I’ve been doing this indie publishing thing since 2014.

My superpower is knowing everything … or knowing someone who knows it. You might have seen me on the Self-Publishing Podcast, met me at the Smarter Artist Summit or 20 Books to 50K Vegas, or heard about me from clients like Chris Fox, David Gaughran, Wayne Stinnett, CN Crawford, or Dawn McKenna. I get around.

Knowing things doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be good at teaching them, though?
So true. In my case, however, I had an education minor in college, and have specific experience in one-on-one consulting and large-group video instruction with indie authors over the last several years. I know how to teach, and I especially know how to teach this.

What kind of author will benefit from Newsletter Ninja?
Every author would benefit from Newsletter Ninja—and I don’t say that lightly. I cover everything from the basics of how to choose an email marketing service all the way to optimizing list-building and autoresponders for experienced authors who need to take their already-good maiing list game to the next level.

Is Newsletter Ninja only for indies, or is it good for authors who publish with a traditional publisher?
As long as you control your own mailing list, Newsletter Ninja can help you.

Is Newsletter Ninja for fiction or nonfiction authors?
While more fiction authors seem to be interested in the class, nonfiction authors will also get a lot out of the class.

Are there any prerequisites to take Newsletter Ninja?
Nope. You might have a bit of a leg up if you’ve read the book, but even if you haven’t you will do just fine.

I’m from Australia/Japan/Venus/[REDACTED], and I don’t know if the times of the video calls will work for me.
I try to vary the timing of group calls so that everyone can make at least one or two, but it is more difficult if you’re in a non-American time zone. However, all group calls will be recorded and available for you to watch ASAP so even if you miss one you can get back up to speed right away. All one-on-one calls will be scheduled directly with you—and since I don’t sleep anyway, your one-on-one should be able to be scheduled at your convenience, even on Venus.

Is Newsletter Ninja affiliated with the people or companies you work with?
Nope. This is me, individually. Right now, I’m running this under the aegis of my LLC, Larks & Katydids, the same business/financial entity that backs my editing and consulting work. Newsletter Ninja is not affiliated with Sterling & Stone, the Self-Publishing Podcast, my own pen names or co-authorships, any conference, or any of my individual clients. The Newsletter Ninja mailing list is separate from any other mailing list I run and your information will not be shared with anyone or any organization. All tuition goes to Larks & Katydids and, after expenses, on to the instructor (usually me).

So how much does Newsletter Ninja cost? Probably a lot, right?
Actually, no.

The class is priced at $299. Class size is capped at 10 students.

You must be monetizing this some other way then? Affiliates or kickbacks or whatnot?
Nope. No affiliate webinars, no kickbacks to people who recommend me, no kickbacks from services I recommend, no undisclosed affiliate links to services or sellers.
