Now that you’ve written a nonfiction book to help others in life or at work, don’t let it collect dust or expect it to sell itself. Consider yourself an expert in your field and take what you know to the stage (or at least to the front of the room). I’ll show you how to take what’s in your book and turn it into opportunities to reach more people with short talks to develop yourself as a speaker.
In this information packed session you’ll learn how to find small and large audiences to bring your message to groups who need to hear what you have to say. And after they hear you speak, they will flock to your sales table or online bookstores to buy your books. Don’t let your message end with your book, step up, get noticed, and bring it to those who need to hear it now.

***This session was originally scheduled to be delivered by Dan Poynter, a long-time friend to the Nonfiction Writers Conference. Unfortunately, Dan is recovering from a bad fall and will not be able to join us this year. We send him our best wishes and look forward to welcoming him back to our speaker roster in 2016! We also greatly appreciate Bill Corbett for stepping in to cover this slot. Bill has tremendous experience and content and will not disappoint!
