“After just a few lessons in Chris' Mastering Social Media Book Marketing For Authors online course, I knew it was already worth it. No other marketing class I’ve ever taken has offered tools to help define where I am as a writer and what I should be concentrating on in platform- building and marketing”

Here's how our online classes have helped authors:

 "Working with Chris was transformative! As a new author, I've felt for a while now that I was spinning my wheels when it came to marketing and promo-- trying a bunch of things without truly knowing if they were effective-- and then I found Chris and clarity.


I already plan to work with Chris again when I'm ready to advance to the next stage in my writing career."

"I have spent the past year trying to get a handle on the new social media tools and practical advice on how to use them without becoming a slave to them. I felt completely out of it when I signed up for the social media Webinar with Chris. Now I feel like I am in the swim of it. Out of the library and into the stream of the web. Hooray!"
