Genre: Book Marketing
During this past school year, I had the pleasure of working with Barbara, to set up two Skype presentations, along with an in-person visit at our school in southern Wisconsin. I could tell that she really had her act together when it came to making sure that absolutely everything would run smoothly. After her visits, I had more positive comments than any other time we've had an author visit our school.
The book is very well organized and is set up in a logical order to help authors every step of the way. There are many helps, checklists, and resources throughout the book. Barbara also includes information from authors other than herself. The index makes it a topnotch quality, as it is so easy to go back and find a particular topic when you are in the midst of planning and need something in a hurry.
I highly recommend Barbara Techel as an author for a visit to your school and/or library, but more than that I recommend Class Act as a resource for everyone who is considering going this route as an author/speaker. After seeing Barbara Techel in action, I would say, "Read her book and take her advice. She knows what she is talking about. She truly is a class act!"
