Praise for Author, Teacher, and Speaker Donna Galanti
Kate Brandes Author of The Promise of Pierson Orchard katebrandes.com
"Donna shared strategies with me that not only helped lead to the publication of my first novel, but also helped me secure my dream agent. I have followed her expert advice on positioning myself and my first novel during the all-important marketing period before and after publication.”
Kathryn Craft Author of The Far End of Happy and owner of writing-partner.com
"Donna Galanti sets learners at ease with her accessible demeanor, confident knowledge, and well-organized presentations. In her marketing lecture, she helped daunted introverts accept that social media and publishing go hand-in-hand for today’s writer, and that ideally, platform building, like writing, deserves years of pre-publication devotion. For beginners starting out or authors catching up, her clear, step-by-step suggestions untangle what can seem like an overwhelming jumble of marketing tasks."
