Are you an author or creative preparing for success?
Do you want to learn to speak effectively in front of an audience?
Do you identify as an introvert?
All successful creatives have to speak and present in public, whether that's at a festival, on a podcast or radio show, or as part of earning multiple streams of income. But you don’t have to be like Tony Robbins, bouncing around on stage with a booming voice and larger than life personality. You just have to be you and tell your story in your own way.

Review from 1st edition:
“I bought your new book on public speaking today, and does it ever speak to me! Your description of yourself as an introvert describes me perfectly, and the best part is it makes me feel that finally it’s okay to be an introvert, and I don’t need to apologize for leaving events early or slipping away from a writers’ conference for an hour or two to grab a nap! What a wonderful feeling of self-affirmation!”
