How To Give a Public Reading

Because I am away at a conference today, I am going to cheat and repost a guest blog I wrote for the Sisters in Crime National website.

It’s a two-part series on How to Give a Public Reading.

Part 1 is called  Four Tips for the Performance Author

Part 2 is called Four Tips for the Performance Author, part 2.

All you need now is an audience or an open mic!


Tomorrow’s topic: Sunday is a day of rest. Monday’s topic will be How To Follow Up a Conference.

Guest Blogging at Sisters in Crime National

Today I’m pleased to be the guest blogger at Sisters in Crime National’s blog.

My topic: Tips to help a shy author give a dynamic public reading or book talk. This is a two-parter, using a 4-P (Plan, Prepare, Practice and Psyche Yourself) system.

Part 1 of The Performance Author runs today. More follows tomorrow, same time, same place.¬† Don’t be shy! Come on over.
