Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan and NCPA members role play – What happens when an author journeys through finding an agent, agent lands an acquisition editor. . . then that editor pitches author’s intellectual property to sales team who may or may not recommend publisher’s offering of a contract to the author. Marketing, you ask?  Publishers focus their attention on their best-selling authors and celebrity authors because those authors have huge fanbases.  Yes, that’s probably Tom Kando’s notebook on the right as he takes notes to recap the presentation. Thank you, Tom! Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan says: “You CAN compete for attention when YOU know how to grow YOUR fanbase by articulating YOUR platform statement and training your fans to promote YOU. Reach out, not stress out!”  Coach Teresa is the

Via facebook, Ken Umbach of Umbach Consulting & Publishing says: “Very fine, energetic, inviting, participatory presentation today by Teresa LeYung-Ryan at the NCPA meeting today.”

Author Laurie Hoirup, author of  I Can Dance: My Life with a Disability,  says:  ”What I value most about Coach Teresa’s workshop was learning about ideas regarding nametags and creating my platform statements and ways to put it out there.”  Here’s my platform statement: “Through my book, I increase people’s awareness in regards to life with a significant disability.”

With this YouTube video . . . Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan cheers for NCPA members and colleagues . . . says she is a big fan of author Frances H. Kakugawa.
“I am on a high from presenting ‘Build Your Writer’s Platform and Fanbase in 22 Days’ at the Northern California Publishers & Authors… such talented and successful folks. I love conducting interactive presentations – today the focus was ‘making connections and having fun.’ Thank you NCPA board, committees, and the entire membership.
Special thanks to my pal author & documentary film producer Margie Yee Webb (for taking great photos & movies at the workshop), Norma Jean Thornton, Ken Umbach, Secretary Tom Kando, Treasurer Laurie Hoirup, VP Dennis Potter, President Ted Witt (he was promoting his book and couldn’t be there… Cheers, Ted!), Kimberly A. Edwards and The Frances H. Kakugawa. Frances, did you know that I bragged about you on page 6 of my workbook? You are one of the authors whose books I do read again and again. Go, Wordsworth! Your being there today and leaving me that lovely glass vase with rose means the world to me. I thank you from my heart.”
All you talented NCPA members, broadcast your platform statements to the world!
