As an introvert and a writer, you feel stretched to choose between the lesser of two evils - marketing to people who'll most likely criticize you, or putting your writing on the back burner. Introverts have strengths that make them marketable, creative, and successful. Forget those people who tell you to change, to put on a different personality, to dance like a monkey before crowds. Here is the support to be a writer and remain who you care to be . . . genuine. The Shy Writer Reborn: An Introverted Writer's Wake-up Call, is the guide to being yourself and being a writer who can be successful, without changing who you are. Learn tricks for book signings, speaking, submitting, interviewing, and more. Pick up mantras to remind yourself how to deal with the situation you're in. The Shy Writer Reborn is the new bible for the writer seeking to remain true to himself while establishing his profession . . . successfully. "If you're a shy writer looking for both inspiration and practical how-to advice, C. Hope Clark's THE SHY WRITER REBORN is the operations manual for you; filled with tips on a range of issues facing introverted authors, Clark's engaging work offers assistance with everything from blogging to self-promotion to holding a successful book signing to finding your authentic voice, all while honoring your deep need for solitude in which to write." -- Kelly L. Stone, author of TIME TO WRITE: No Excuses, No Distractions, No More Blank Pages (Adams Media) "Shy types, rejoice! Introversion may seem like a major obstacle to building a successful writing career, but this wonderful covers-all-the-bases book handily debunks the notion. The only bad news? You'll have no more excuses not to succeed! Highly recommended." ~Peter Bowerman, Author, "The Well-Fed Writer" series, www.wellfedwriter.com "The number one thing that holds writers back is fear. For introverts -- who, ironically, are drawn to writing because they think you can do it alone -- the fear is even bigger. Interviews, book signings, public speaking -- many of the tasks of a freelance writer demand that you be social and perform. But don't fret -- Hope has solutions in The Shy Writer Reborn that let you make the most of who you are instead of asking you to change your personality." ~Linda Formichelli, owner of The Renegade Writer Blog (http://www.therenegadewriter.com) and co-author of The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success "I love The Shy Writer Reborn! As a self-diagnosed introvert, I know the fears of many writers who are literally afraid to follow their passion and be successful. C. Hope Clark shares how to overcome that fear while navigating interviews, pitches, queries, and more. She even finishes the book with a great set of mantras! If you're a shy writer, this is the book that will help you find and cultivate an audience for your writing." -Robert Lee Brewer, Senior Content Editor, Writer's Market "Hope Clark has done an incredible service for authors by writing The Shy Writer Reborn. She guides you through the steps to overcome fears and finally get a book out of your head and on to paper. This book will help a lot of would-be authors realize their dreams. Highly recommended!" ~ Stephanie Chandler, author of The Nonfiction Book Marketing Plan: Online and Offline Promotion Strategies for Serious Authors, www.StephanieChandler.com
