Public Speaking Coaching for Authors

Speak With Confidence – Sell More Books

You’ve published your book. That’s great! What’s next?


It seems like an obvious progression … you write and publish your book and you’re ask to speak at an event, on a podcast, or even on television.


What isn’t necessarily obvious to those who asked you to speak, however, is that just because you can write at a high level doesn’t mean you can present to audiences at a high level. Writing and speaking are two entirely different things.


Sitting alone at your desk and writing is different from standing in front of an audience and speaking.


Being able to write and edit is different from having one opportunity to get it right.


Engaging readers through the written word is entirely different from engaging people who are sitting in front of you, listening to your voice and watching your body language.


So, what do you do?

When asked to speak in public, you have three choices



You can decline the opportunity. Not a good choice, but it’s a safe one.



You can accept the invitation and experience the apprehension that goes along with speaking to audiences who are expecting a high level of confidence and competence. Even worse, you could wing it!



You can accept the invitation and have your spoken words resonate with your listeners every bit as powerfully as your written words resonate with your readers. When you do, you confirm in the minds of your readers that you are as talented as they believed. You also compel others to purchase your books.

You can do this!


Speaking (make that speaking effectively) helps you reach more people. It helps you build credibility. It can even be the driving force that helps you achieve the success you’ve envisioned.


And don’t let the fact that you’re an introvert hold you back! Many great speakers are/were introverts, including Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama, Winston Churchill, Steve Jobs, and Tom Hanks and countless others.

Don’t go it alone


You want to be as successful, but to do that, you need to confidently communicate your knowledge, concepts, and objectives. The problem is that you do not have the public speaking skills you need, which leaves you frustrated and struggling. I know how you feel; I’ve been there.


I believe you should enjoy the success you deserve, and I can help you quickly and systematically develop powerful public speaking skills.


By working we me,

  • You get training based on your needs; it’s not one size fits all.
  • You learn more in less time; you don’t have to spend hours searching the web, reading books, and watching videos.
  • You know what you’re doing is working; you don’t have to wonder and doubt yourself.


It doesn’t matter if you write fiction or non-fiction, you can be as calm, confident, and credible when you speak as you are when you write!

Why I’m the one to help you


1. I’m an author, so I know exactly how you feel.

2. I owned a publishing company for 15 years. 

3. As a public speaking coach, author, and introvert, I understand the vast divide between the introverted world of writing and the seemingly extroverted world of public speaking. Most of all, I know how to help you bridge that gap so you can be as confident in speaking as you are in writing.
