Frequently Asked Questions

Below you’ll find answers to the most commonly asked questions I get asked here at tonyshotsheets.com. If you don’t see the answer you’re looking for, then please contact me, and I’ll get back to you with an answer.

What Is a Hotsheet?

A hotsheet, as I use the term here, is simply a short report (usually 2,500-10,000 words or so, which is roughly the equivalent of 5-20, 8.5” x 11”, single-spaced printed pages). It’s intentionally designed to be a quick read.

My hotsheets usually answer a very specific question and/or provide a solution to a very specific problem. They are generally “How to …” in nature.

Some of my hotsheets are case studies detailing how I answered a very specific question and/or solved a very specific problem for myself. These are usually “How I …” in nature.

The information contained in my hotsheets is concise, to the point, and doesn’t contain any fluff or filler. Because they address one very specific question and/or one very specific problem, they’re shorter, much shorter, than a full-length book on the same subject, which could run upwards of 100,000 words or more.

My hotsheets can be purely text or a combination of text and images, depending on the subject matter.

What’s So Great About Your Hotsheets?

Simple. My hotsheets answer your questions and/or help you solve your problems with a minimum of time and effort. Why go through all the trouble of reading a 100,000-word book when a 2,500-word hotsheet can do the same thing?

Now, you might think the 200-page book has more information, but, if you’ve read any lately, I think you’ll agree they’re generally full of fluff and, more often than not, go on and on and on without ever getting to the point. Even worse, after all that time and effort, you still don’t know what to do!

Because they’re relatively short, my hotsheets can be read in minutes versus hours. Question answered and/or problem solved. Case closed!

And, because of they’re length, it’s easy to refer back to them over and over again if need be.

How Can Your Hotsheets Help Me?

Hotsheets can answer your questions and/or help you solve your problems in a minimum of time and effort.

They save you money (on long books filled with fluff and filler that don’t give you the answers you’re looking for) and time (time spent looking for books to help, time spent reading them, time spent trying things that don’t work, and time lost because your your question wasn’t answered or your problem wasn’t solved).

The bottom line being they’ll leave you with more money in your pocket, more time on your hands, and more energy left to enjoy your life!

How Much Do Your Hotsheets Cost?

Most of my hotsheets range in price from $0.99 to $2.99 USD.

Why Are Your Hotsheets Different Prices?

Generally speaking, the longer (as in the more words/pages) the hotsheet is and the more information it contains, the higher the price.

Who Creates Your Hotsheets?

I (Tony Mase) do. However, in the future, on occasion, when there’s enough demand for information on a particular topic I don’t have any or enough personal experience with, I may offer hotsheets written or co-written by others.

Are Your Hotsheets Based on Experience or Rehashed Ideas Put Forth by Other People?

The hotsheets written by me (Tony Mase) are all based on my own personal experience, experience I gained through trial and error (or, as some might call it, trial and terror), or after modifying ideas I obtained from other sources and then putting them to the test out there in the real world.

Can I Write a Hotsheet and Have You Sell It for Me?

No, at least not right now.

What Forms of Payment Do You Accept?

I don’t sell my hotsheets directly. I make them available exclusively on Amazon, so they can be purchased with whatever forms of payment they accept. See Amazon’s Accepted Payment Methods page for details.

How Long Does It Take to Get Your Hotsheets?

Being available in Kindle ebook format, they’re available instantly after purchase.

What if I Don’t Have a Kindle Reader?

You don’t need a Kindle reader to read Kindle ebooks. Amazon makes free Kindle reading apps for practically every device imaginable. See Amazon’s Free Kindle Reading Apps for iOS, Android, Mac and PC page to get one for your device (I read my Kindle ebooks on my phone).

Do You Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

According to Amazon, books purchased from the Kindle Store can be returned within seven days of purchase (see this on Amazon).

That being said, all of my hotsheets provide what they claim to provide. If your decision to buy or not buy one of them is dependent upon there being a money back guarantee of some sort, then please, do me a big favor, don’t buy it. Really!!

My hotsheets are inexpensive and, quite frankly, I’d rather not deal with someone so scared of losing a few bucks – especially when those same people probably think absolutely nothing of dropping a few bucks on a coffee, sandwich, candy bar, or lottery ticket.

Do You Have an Affiliate Program?

As I sell my hotsheets on Amazon Kindle, you can promote them as an affiliate through the Amazon Associates program.

What If I Don’t See a Hotsheet for a Question or Problem I Have?

Let me know (contact me), and if there’s enough interest in the subject and I have the necessary experience to do so, I’ll consider creating a hotsheet addressing it at some point.

Can You Let Me Know When You Release New Hotsheets?

I sure can. Use the form below to join my hotsheets club. As a member, you’ll receive email notification of all new hotsheets I release, as I release them, and often at special, limited-time, discounted prices.
