Thank you so much for the workshop.  You are truly gifted.  I really appreciate your positive words of support and enthusiasm for all of us.  We should definitely keep in touch and I look forward to following your publishing career flourish and hopefully will fill you in on my ideas as they come to fruition.  Many thanks once again.

I thoroughly enjoyed your session on Saturday – what an amazingly generous day of info. There was not one dull moment.  It was exactly what I needed to focus my head on a few ideas (and ignore some others!).  It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and I look forward to having the opportunity to use your services again in the not too distant future. A few one:one mentoring sessions sounds like just the things I could use – when I have some words down, that is 🙂 Many thanks for all the wisdom and resources.

It’s been a terrific learning experience. I hadn’t a clue how I might self-publish and have now walked away confident I will market some top sellers! My published book, The Majestic, is a testament to your skill as a trainer.
