Marketing for Storytellers - That Really Works
Do you want to spend more time on your art, and less time making a living at it? Want to finally go full-time - without becoming a slave to the business of storytelling? My first-ever telephone seminar gives you the key concepts and the most practical ideas that have changed my life. Over the last two years, I've discovered an approach to that "dirty word" among storytellers, "marketing," that has given me more time to do the work I love - and helped me secure an income with less drudgery and aggravation. Fully guaranteed!
Can't make the seminar? Enjoy an early-bird discount by pre-ordering the recording. Added May 23, 2002.

Whether you are a storyteller, speaker, musician, writer, painter, or other artist, you face the question, "How do I live my art, and still live in the real world?"
