Memoir Writing: Taking Your Story a Step Further (Nonfiction Craft):Most writers want to write their personal story. But autobiography and memoir rarely sell unless your story was a national media event or you’re known around the world. Make your memoir marketable by learning how to identify the “reader benefit” within your story and write elements of your story around it.

7 Secrets to Presenting Yourself as an Author: Making a Professional First, Second, and Third Impression (Marketing): Whether your book is traditionally or self-published, how you present yourself is key to your success and your book’s longevity. Learn proven tips to successfully connect with leaders and gain an audience through speaking engagements, online article writing, social media presence, website tips, author pages, and personal interaction.
