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.”

Coach Teresa here… Inviting everyone to subscribe to Laurie Hoirup‘s Blog. We all know someone who lives with a disability and can gain more inspiration; after you subscribe and receive announcements that Laurie has written a new blog post . . .  forward the new post to your friend or family member.  Anyone can subscribe.  Share.  Connect.  Thrive.

 

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!

“Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days”

  • Are you published and you want more readers and media attention?
  • Is your fiction or nonfiction project being turned down by agents or acquisition editors because your platform doesn’t entice them?

Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan will show you how to thrive in the publishing arena and have fun too. She says: “Reach out, not stress out! By making your name stand for something—to attract targeted consumers (your fans)—who are likely to buy what you have to sell.  Learn how to help your fans find you, before and after publication!”  From the author of Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW. 

Meanwhile, go to  http://writingcoachTeresa.com  and watch Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan’s interview on CBS “Bay Sunday.”    Her workbook will be available on Nov. 9, 2013.

BIO: 
Teresa LeYung-Ryan has built her own platform happily; her novel  Love Made of Heart and her monologue Answer Me Now (an award-winning shorty play) carry the themes closest to her heart:   mother-daughter relationship, and, speaking openly about stigmas attached to mental illness. Love Made of Heart is used in college composition and women’s studies classes, available at public libraries, recommended by the CA School Library Association and the CA Reading Association, and is archived at the San Francisco History Center.
Through her workbook Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW,  Coach Teresa helps fiction and nonfiction writers make their names synonymous with the issues they write about,  before and after publication.  

See you there!

Sincerely,

22-Day Writing Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan
