Introducing Social Media Marketing Workshops & Classes in Southend

Hi everyone,

I get a lot of questions about using the Internet to market businesses, so I’m starting friendly, relaxed classes for beginners:

2 Hour Intro Workshop Learn the basics! | £15 | Groups of 3-4
4 Week Intro Workshop Start using social media with ongoing support! (2 hours weekly) | £30 | Groups of 3-4
Consultations 2-3 hours 1-on-1 | £25 per session | Available on request

Classes will take place in Southend on Saturday mornings starting from 3rd February. Exact time and location TBC, probably a coffee shop near the high street around 10:30am, will confirm when I have numbers. Contact info@francescaburke.com or message me via Facebook to reserve a place!

Have a good week,

Happy Christmas!

Hi everyone,

Before I slow down for Christmas, I just wanted to say thank you for all your support this year. 2017 has been interesting to say the least… seriously though I love that I’ve got back into writing and I love how well people have responded to my stories, blogs and new products. Thank you for sticking with me this year!

Keep an eye out on social media for a little Etsy sale after Christmas, and some new stories in the new year… there will also be the Indifferent Ignorance Awards 2017 on the blog before 31st December, although I’m still wading through potential candidates for the less flattering awards…

10% Off & Free International Postage on Orders Over £10 Until 30th November

Hi guys,

I’ve got Cyber Week started because, um, everyone else has… until 30th November, orders over £10 will qualify for 10% off and will ship free to international customers, too (UK orders already ship free!). Most of my listings are low on stock – one print has already sold out – and I’m not sure when I’ll next stock up, so if you see something you like don’t hang about! You can also upgrade to gift wrap if you’d like, and I’m always happy to ship straight to the recipient. You can also get shipping upgrades if you’re tight on time, and digital items qualify for 10% off when you spend £10 too!

Happy Cyber Week, I guess…

Etsy News: Free International Shipping, Greetings Cards & Gift Wrap

Hi everyone,

I’ve had a mad few weeks putting together new designs and I’m really pleased to introduce new Happy Birthday, Jesus greetings cards, Saturnalia cards, gift wrap and some new mythology designs, plus a new Brexit one. Plus, international orders that spend over £10 until 30th November qualify for free postage! (Don’t look at me like that, Britain, you always have free postage.)

Hope you’re all having a good November!

‘Everyday Acts of Murder’ Short Stories Online Now

Hi everyone,

I realised I forgot to share here: my current series on my new story blog is a black comedy, Everyday Acts of Murder. The first two stories are up now, and the third will be online in a couple of weeks.

Everyday Acts of Murder Stories by Francesca Burke

You can get early access to stories, plus have a character named after you, by pledging a dollar a month (or more!) to my Patreon campaign. You can see the full list of reward tiers, and follow me on Patreon, here.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the stories!

Introducing a Stories Blog and a Patreon Campaign!

Hi everyone,

I’ve started a new blog, FrancescasWords.wordpress.com, to share my short stories. I really needed a space to upload and share bits and pieces I’ve had lying around, and now seemed a good time (I did a slightly longer blog about that on  Indifferent Ignorance). I’ve also updated my Patreon campaign so patrons can now see posts early, as well as have a character named after them and suggest a story prompt, amongst a bunch of other things. 

I’m really excited to get stuck in and show you what I’ve been working on! In the mean time, I’m still poking about on here to improve layout and whatnot. Let me know if any links are broken or if you’re having trouble reading anything!

Maintenance Occuring: Apologies for Delays

Hi everyone,

I’m poking around on this site at the moment because I’d like to bring you bigger, better things… hopefully in a pretty and readable format. If you click a page and it takes you somewhere odd, or if a link doesn’t work – or if you arrive on the site and it looks like something from 1997 – don’t panic. It’ll be back to normal soon, promise!

You can always reach me on info@francescaburke.com if you have questions.

Thank you for understanding,

Francesca

News: Free UK postage on everything! EVERYTHINGGG.

Hi everyone,

Happy August! I am most definitely doing that thing where old people say ‘where has the year gone?’ but seriously I was writing you all from Cambodia about two weeks ago?! Anyway, I bring good tidings to those of you in the UK: whenever I’ve asked people how I can improve the shop, they’ve asked for free postage. If it’s between a percentage discount and free postage, they want free postage. If it’s between the second coming of Christ and free postage, they want free postage. So, because I am a benevolent soul with the loveliest customers on the Internet, I’ve put free UK postage onto everything on my Etsy for the foreseeable future. You don’t have to enter a coupon or anything, it’s all automatic. It’s just a trial for the moment (maybe three months) but if you guys are into it, I’ll make it a permanent thing.

You’re welcome, I guess.

I have to go and do accounts now so I will leave this here. Don’t forget there’s still a contest on Tumblr to win one of my tote bags (ends 13th August!) and keep an eye out because I’m actually writing some stuff that might make it past the draft stage and onto the Internet.

Have a great week,

Francesca
