This is a glimpse into what happens when you are invited to present at a teleseminar:

Linda Joy Myers, president of The National Association of Memoir Writers (NAMW), invited me to be a guest on her teleseminar for members only on Friday, June 18, 2010    Time: 11 AM PDT    12 PM MDT   1 PM CDT     2PM EDT

Staci Motherwell, the Vice President of Marketing & Business Development at NAMW, asked me to provide a title and description of my talk.

“USE WHAT YOU KNOW TO BUILD FAME:  Fun & Simple Steps for Memoir Writers”

How do writers thrive in the fiercely competitive industry?  Find out for yourself in this delightful session with Writing Career Coach Teresa LeYung Ryan who created Build Your Name, Beat the Game: Be Happily Published (the 22 minutes for 22 days workbook). Visit:

In response to Ms. Motherwell’s request to provide a list of 3-5 talking points that I plan to discuss with Linda Joy Myers during the NAMW Members-Only teleseminar:

  • Why do memoir writers have to be concerned with building name/fame?
  • How does a writer identify advocates, endorsers and fans?
  • Would you like to know more about gaining recognition through your words and community?

Teresa LeYung Ryan says: “When you make your name synonymous with the themes/subject matters/issues in your writing, you are building your name/career/platform. You too can be happily published.”
