A Website Must Have for Authors: Speaking Tab

A Website Must Have for Authors: Speaking Tab

As I prepped for the weekend’s 4th Speaking Unplugged boot camp, I always through the previous one’s 75-page workbook, and ask myself,

Over the weekend, I had the honor of presenting a four-hour workshop on Publishing Today for the Denver Women’s Press Club with a packed room. Book Publishing Options Today. It was a “wide-open” topic, one I knew inside out … and one that I can do blindfolded.
