Speaker Topics

I love to chat with writers. I have a few topics ready to go, or I can customize a topic for you. Use the contact form to tell me about your group and what you would like to learn. 


Indie Author’s Guide to Indie Editors

Editors are the not-so-secret sauce that helps authors take their book to the next level. Everyone knows you need one, but finding the right editor for your project can be a challenge. Jen Graybeal has worked with indie published romance authors for years and is sharing the top ten things you need to know about finding, hiring and working with freelance editors.

Help! My Brain is Full

Pages of notes, loads of business cards, story ideas pinging around the brain like a pinball machine... Conferences are great for motivation, but the challenge is taking those ideas and applying them to the business of writing. We will talk about various methodologies for organizing your thoughts, create project plans for your business and books, and decide what to tackle first.

This workshop was developed for conferences, but is also great for groups.


Getting Started with Social Media

Everyone says you need to be on social media, but where on earth do you start? We will cover the basics of how to get started with Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. We will talk about how they work, how to find your readers, and how to keep your private life private. We will also talk about how to plan and organize your posts so it doesn't take all day.

This is an interactive workshop, plan to bring your smart phones and laptops. 

Kind words from workshop participants

"Terrific evening."

"Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge about social media... it was a fun evening."
