There are some storytelling and execution problems that leave literary agents and readers cold. Join me in June to learn what they are and how to set yourself up for a warm reception.
Stay tuned for participation details, and join the Idaho Writers Guild today.
Stay tuned for details.
Event organizers love my enthusiasm and commitment to their success. I see myself as your strategic partner, invested in your event and your attendees’ experience, not just a speaker.
Attendees love my straight-forward, results-oriented approach and fun but educational delivery. They also appreciate how I find ways to speak to authors at every skill level and stage of the publishing journey.
