Nonfiction Book Award Status: SILVER
Nonfiction Book Award - Silver Winner - 150


Your Copy Sucks – You Don’t! is not only a mantra for Carline Anglade-Cole’s copywriting students – it’s a metaphor about life: When bad things happen – Don’t take it personal!

With her signature “tell it like it is” style, Carline shares 60 powerful lessons learned from the first 60 years of her life. These hard-won lessons run the gamut of what life has in store – whether it’s creating a killer copy promotion…managing a tricky client relationship…or raising kids to become decent human beings.

Carline gives you her discoveries and triumphs to help you succeed. And she shows you how to have fun while you’re at it!

In her lively second book, Carline shares heartfelt lessons on marriage… family…and friendships. She delivers copywriting gems to rev up skills of newbies – as well as experienced writers. And she gives it to you straight about taking care of your body and staying on track with your ethics and spiritual beliefs.

She leaves no stone unturned – and with humor and humility- she gives you a successful road map to help you avoid – or at least swerve around – many of life’s pitfalls.

“A Creative Genius!”

“I’d like to be inside Carline’s head for five minutes – because there is some crazy, creative stuff going on in there.”

Richard A. Armstrong, A-List Copywriter and Author

Deanna Blanchard, Copywriter
