Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan

Coach Teresa says: “I love helping writers build their platforms and published authors fortify theirs with individualized coaching.”

As coach and author of Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW, she advices: “Make your name synonymous with the issues you write about.”

Teresa has built her own platform happily; her novel Love Made of Heart and her short play Answer Me Now carry the theme closest to her heart: mother-daughter relationship.

Teresa LeYung-Ryan helps clients identify themes, universal archetypes, front-story and back-story in their manuscripts.

How did Cat Mulan Author Margie Yee Webb create a fun book launch for Community?

A recipe for a fun book launch:

  • 1. Consider your guests – audience – readers
  • 2. Choose location location location
  • 3. Pick a meaningful date

Cat Mulan’s Mindful Musings: Insight and Inspiration for a Wonderful Life

Cat Mulan's Mindful Musings Book Cover

1. For Margie’s delightful gift book–cat lovers, pet lovers, friends of cat lovers, animal advocates.

2. The Market Place in Rancho Cordova, CA – lovely showroom setting in a home and garden improvement mall.  They provide cashiers. Plenty of parking.

3.  People for Animal Welfare in El Dorado County (PAWED), Animal Rescue League, FieldHaven Feline Rescue, and Sacramento SPCA were able to send representatives and bring felines to Margie’s book launch on March 12, 2011.

I met Shaun who was taking plenty of photos of author Margie Yee Webb, her festive exhibit, and the representatives and cats from above referenced organizations.

I met authors Kevin “James” Richardson and Don Ricardo.

I chatted with author Hazuki Kataoka of http://storycardtheater.com We had met when I presented “Build Your Name, Beat the Game” at the 2010 Northern California Publishers and Authors Conference (Margie had connected me with NCPA).

It was pure joy to see Margie interact with her old fans and new fans; it was delightful to see Margie’s mom, siblings, nieces and nephews.

Margie had created over half a dozen cat-theme gift baskets–raffle ticket donations support the animal organizations.

Lakshmi Kerner (LakshmiLove), thank you again and again for driving and cheering and staying to meet Kimberly A. Edwards (Lakshmi and Kimberly both write memoirs).

Teresa LeYung Ryan & Lakshmi Kerner cheer for Margie Yee Webb at her book launch ***   Kimberly A. Edwards, Hazuki, 22-Day Coach Teresa cheer for Margie Yee Webb author of Cat Mulan's Mindful Musings

Margie, I am so very happy for you and Cat Mulan.  Kimberly had the purrfect description of your event–Margie’s book launch is a model for authors.

Look what Angela Pang of AsianWeek wrote about Margie and Cat Mulan:

http://www.asianweek.com/2011/03/10/chinese-american-releases-new-inspirational-cat-book/

Margie Yee Webb promotes pet awareness and encourages people to make a difference in the lives of cats and other companion animals. A portion of every sale of Cat Mulan’s Mindful Musings will be donated to animal welfare organizations and shelters.

Cat Mulan and Margie encourage you to support your local animal welfare organizations and shelters.
