The Hidden Novelist Project

This month, we have launched a new project on Kickstarter to support the Hidden Novelist Project. This project pulls the door open on the archives of the About the Books broadcast, taking our spoken-word audio files and transcribing them to printed-word formats. Big project; five years worth of material. Thanks for your support! Here’s the Kickstarter link:

Writing Workshops

If you have ever been to a seminar, a workshop, or a large conference, what was your experience like and did you return to your company with answers?

In these digital days, we think that one-to-one relationships still work.

We create, manage, and customize a workshop for your company. It’s a turnkey event. It attracts potential clients that you talk with during the session to introduce your products, services, and personal attention. It’s a place where a client gets to know your company. In person.

Advertising works, but does it bring you face-to-face with clients who want to ask a few questions before they buy your product or service?

A workshop. Where people meet to talk about what they want. Where they say, “I found a great company, went to a workshop, and they answered all my questions about this project. I hired them.” People hire people they know, like, and trust. Workshops.

Call us and we’ll be delighted to have you sit in on our next workshop. See for yourself how effective this is for gaining new customers.

Also, read the interviews from our broadcast on, where you’ll find great insider tips from Pulitzer Prize-winning authors.
