A few days ago, I posted about my new workshop coming up this weekend for nonfiction writers (Do You Need Help with Writing a Nonfiction Book? Don’t Miss This Weekend Workshop!) and I heard from so many people that not only are they struggling with writing the book itself, but they’re also nervous and worried about actually getting their book out there into the world once it’s finished.
These messages couldn’t come with more perfect timing, because that’s exactly what we’re going to be focusing on during the second part of my nonfiction workshop: how to launch your book out into the world in a way that is authentic and feels good to you AND also helps your readers find you at the same time.
This is by far one of the most difficult parts of the journey for nonfiction writers. Marketing anything tends to make Highly Sensitive creative people feel uneasy, and when it’s our own book, the fear and stress are only amplified.
We’re going to be untangling these very issues during the second day of the workshop this weekend, and learning strategies we can use to promote our work in a way that’s do-able, realistic, and non-overwhelming. And trust me, if you are Highly Sensitive, your marketing plan absolutely cannot be overwhelming, or you simply won’t do any of it.
I talk more about this in the video below:
I created this workshop because I heard from so many writers while I was launching the fiction class I taught last month that what they really needed was something for nonfiction writers who were trying to finish and launch a book out into the world. So I took that feedback and used it to develop this two-day weekend workshop that gives you everything you need to know about writing your nonfiction book AND getting it out there into the world.

Hopefully I’ll see you there!
