    I would like to set up a webinar. Is this possible?

  2. I am interested in inviting someone to speak at my writers’ group meeting. I don’t know how to go about this. Maybe you could send me speaker and pricing information? I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank You

  3. Gloria Hines says:

    I am a new writer at the age of 72, a retired MHC I would be interested in your webinars do they have to be for a group? how much are they etc… I do have a small writers group that I am a part of, older women as myself,
    Please let me know anything that is coming up , we live in Florida Orlando

  4. Sarina Rose says:

    I just love your books. I have several and they have been most helpful for me as I am a new writer.
    I am a graduate of the College of St Elizabeth and an alumna name Pat Puglisi is also a writer. I was wondering if you are related.

    • Hi, Sarina! Thank you for the kind words, and welcome to the writing journey!. The road is long and winding, but with the kind and generous help of the other writers you’ll meet along the way, I know you’ll find it rewarding :). I don’t know a Pat Puglisi, but I guess we must be related at some level ;).

  5. Katie says:

    When the updates to the Nonverbal Communication webinar are complete, I am interested in attending/purchasing. Could you please include me in your list of interested parties?


    P.S. – I love what you ladies have done with this site and the books. They are enormously helpful in writing, brainstorming, and in motivating me to get back to the keyboard to write some. Thank you for sharing all of your hard work with us.

    • Hi, Katie! I’m so excited to hear that you’ll be joining us for the next nonverbal communication seminar. We’ll definitely add you to the list and let you know when we do that one again. So glad to have you here!

  6. Rose Ortiz says:

    I am interested in finding out about the cost of putting on either an in-person or webinar of Using Nonverbal Communication to Wow Readers. We are the Tucson chapter of RWA and I am exploring options for 2015 presentations. Our meetings typically take place the 4th Saturday of the month and the presentation portion of the meetings are usually 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon. Another alternative is to have a special event where you could have 2 1/2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon.

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the possibilities for a presentation.
    Rose Ortiz

  7. Leta McCurry says:

    I am also interested. Please keep me in the loop. Thanks.

    • Hi there! Thanks so much for your interest in our Using Nonverbal Communication to Wow Readers webinar. We’re in the process of updating it so it’s not available for purchase just yet. I’ll keep your information on file; when the course is offered again, I’ll shoot you an email.

  9. Jenny says:

  10. Meggie Smith says:
