“Judith Briles was not only a phenomenal keynote speaker for our organization, but she wowed our members with three presentations that left them inspired and motivated to learn more about the publishing industry. Best of all, she spent individual time with many of our members talking to them about their books. Judith is a first-class act all around.”
– Tyler Tichelaar, Ph.D. and President of the Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association
In April 2016, we launched a new program: Authors Marketing Event and there was no better person to help us launch it than Dr. Judith Briles. Her down-home style and overwhelming knowledge of the publishing world helped us set the tone for a great and successful event. Judith freely shared her knowledge with attendees while giving valuable insights and understanding the authors who enjoyed her talking and her insights.
Judith Briles is a wonderful speaker for any event and we look forward to having her back in the near future.

“As the opening speaker, your energy set the tone. It was uplifting and demonstrated to all of us that even with obstacles, that anything can be accomplished with perseverance and attitude. One of the nuggets so many commented on: it’s OK to break the rules. With your closing session, it was absolutely fabulous … the perfect, uplifting ending to our conference.”

You were a true professional. I have only great feedback concerning your presentation and your encouragement to writers and their projects. My greatest hope is that a couple of writers take advantage of this opportunity with you and that they then embrace the success that all writers crave.
Thank you for all you did to make this a successful conference,
Herbert Piekow, Director

Your presentations were terrific at the Las Vegas Writers Conference. I learned more about writing and authoring in those three days than I did in the 20 years before I went blind! Of course, as you explained, the publishing industry has changed dramatically in the past 15 years or so.
I don’t mean to gush, but I just wanted to say thank you from Eileen and myself for your time and presentations last week. I hope that we can connect at another conference.
