Some of my speaking gigs include

The 21st Century way to market your book, Society of Authors – January 2012

The book launch party is now rare.  Publishers ask the size of our ‘platform’ and how WE are going to market our book. Denise has accepted the challenge and will share practical advice on flyers, tempting offers, creating videos, virtual book tours, and more.

Thank you very much for an inspiring afternoon with the Society of Authors members at the Golden Heart, Gloucestershire on 25th Jan.”

“I was VERY impressed with your talk Denise… your enthusiasm bubbles over and is wonderfully infectious.  Thanks very much”

Just a quick note to thank you for your most entertaining and enjoyable talk yesterday at the Golden Heart.”

“Thanks so much for coming to London yesterday to provide such an inspirational and energetic talk. We all found it really helpful, and all the tips and web links about how to get published online are fantastic.”
