Speak and Promote Your Book

Speaking Of...

If possible, provide your host with questions that you know will showcase parts of your book that audiences will find appealing. If you are asked to do a reading or formal speech--practice--a lot!

The Ten Minute Challenge

Speaking Of...

You can fit a story in there, and really showcase your story, since you have less 'filler time.' Practice and practice some more.time yourself, and allow for pauses so that you don't go overtime.
