So your creative genius has released a wonderful novel? So, now, what do you do? It is time to sell your novel, but your fear of public speaking has you terrified. What happens if you are in an elevator or sitting next to a publisher at a meeting and you’re overcome with fear? This workshop will teach you how to quickly shirk the fear, to present yourself strongly and cofidently so you can close the deal within minutes.
