Let Me Have It!

Wow! I've been so busy writing and trying to get my word count up with NaNoWriMo that I completely spaced about posting. So here's the deal. Last week I wrote about what to expect AFTER you're published and the anxiety of being in the public eye. Most of you and those who comment on my other blog said that giving presentations was the best part and looked forward to it.

So, here's your chance.

Give me a brief explanation of your presentation platform. What message do you want to leave with your audience, both those who read your book and those who listen to you speak. Will you be humorous or serious? Will you use props or just wing it with you and your fans?

Let me have it guys. I'm excited to hear what you've got planned. After all, we know you'll all be published and famous soon, right?


  1. I'll probably be one of those serious people. ;) I'd like to advocate choice and self-belief.

  2. I do elementary school presentations with my children's picture book, "Chase McKay Didn't Get Up Today" I do four 20-30 minute presentations on "Write What You Know" then end with reading the book to Grades k-3. I teach them, but I also use props and humorous stories, even the song, "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. I come home DRAINED, but have an absolute riot with the children. Teachers are laughing too. It's like a party.
