"This was one of the best workshops I’ve been to help market books (best marketing workshop in anything!). Inspiring, practical, doable. I left with specific actions I could take and contacts to help me spread word of our book. I have used almost everything from the workshop and found professional contacts with whom we’ve worked in order to hone our delivery skills and to help generate buzz when the book is launched. Can’t wait for this next one, which I know will expand my ability even more."
