Spotlight Sunday: Judith Briles
For this week's Spotlight Sunday segment, we bring you the latest book from award winning author Judith Briles: How to Create a $1,000,000 Speech! Aside from her many acclaimed books that she’s already published, Judith is best known as the founder of Author U, Mile High Press, & The Book Shepherd, all of which are organizations designed to help independent authors navigate the complex market of book publishing & marketing, without the drawbacks that come from signing with a big publishing house. As Judith spoke about at length during our interview, if you are an author with a relatively small fan base, the percentage of your total revenue that the big publishers will take can make your efforts to make a living off of your writing quite difficult. So she decided to create a business around teaching authors how to avoid those mistakes. She even continues that work through her most recent novels. How to Create a $1,000,000 Speech is all about the importance of marketing yourself as part of your work & how to accomplish that through public speaking. Whether you are an independent author or someone who wants to get better at public speaking & marketing, this book is definitely for you!
