Addicted to high heels?

Monday, February 15th, 2010

high-heelsEveryone has a story to sell, and every week we deal with magazines, newspapers and even TV companies.

These are top of their WANTED lists this week:

♦ Under-13s addicted to wearing high heels, or who shop for heels with their mum.

A researcher from a TV company is looking at the effect wearing high heels are having on young people’s feet. “I’m looking for under-13s who are already wearing heels,” she said, “as well as anyone under 16 who has had a bad accident while wearing heels that has caused them permanent damage or to have to have an operation.”

♦ A weekly magazine wants a woman in her 20s who had cosmetic surgery to win back her ex-boyfriend. She’ll get paid, plus a photo shoot with hair, make-up and styling.

♦ A Sunday newspaper supplement is looking for a woman who was a surrogate for her own daughter and a mum who donated an organ to her own daughter.

For their Mothers’ Day issue they want:

1. A woman who was a surrogate for her own daughter or a woman who has frozen her eggs to give to her daughter.

2. A woman who donated an organ to her daughter (who can be an adult or a child).

Both mum (under 50) and daughter must be identified and photographed.

♦ And finally a tabloid daily newspaper is following up on a survey by netmums which found women are having less sex than last year – but their romps are now wilder.

They need people who are willing to be named and photoraphed, ideally aged 20 – 40 and working.

If you’re any – or all (!) – of the above, contact us NOW.  info@sellthatstory.com

Chat about chat line work?

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

♦ A women’s magazine is looking for women of any age who work for adult phone lines – maybe to fit in with kids  ot because they’re retired – and who don’t mind talking about why they do it.

♦ A tabloid newspaper wants to interview a woman who has been a victim of domestic violence and whose attacker has been convicted.

It’s a sensitive one, we appreciate, but believe the interviewee will be well compensated for their time. So if you have a story to sell and tell then let us know.

♦ A quality broadsheet is looking to interview a recent graduate  working as a fundraiser or similar in the charity or voluntary sector.  It follows a report showing big fall in vacancies here, despite a general improvement in the graduate jobs market.

Four boys, desperate for a girl?

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Another busy week with a shed load of requests for stories from newspapers and magazines.

A national newspaper is looking for women who have suffered gender disappointment. Last week’s Cutting Edge TV programme featured women who have had four or more boys and are longing for a girl.  The newpaper is looking for others in a similar situation.

A weekly women’s magazine is looking for spooky love stories, such as a woman who found love through a psychic, tarot reader, astrologist.

A tabloid newspaper wants to hear from ordinary women in situations similar to the partners of John Terry and Avram Grant – women whose partners may have slept either with a friend or with a prostitute.

Ideally one would have forgiven her partner  the other wouldn’t.
