Testimonials from Lisa's Writing, Publishing and Publicity Workshops:

"We received very positive reviews from the participants of your memoir writing class. Your workshop was very professional. I appreciate you jumping into this workshop without knowing who the actual target audience was and what level of expertise to expect." Jean Schweid, Librarian, Groton Public Library

"Lisa's talk on 'How to Market Yourself' was fabulous. She was very well received by the members who felt she really knew what she was talking about."Anne-Marie Foster, Co-Founder, freshconnections, a networking group for women in business.

"Lisa's writing advice was advanced enough for adults, but simple enough for children. By the end of the workshop, even the shyest students were sharing their literary creations!" Andrea McKenzie, Bill Library, Ledyard, CT

"Lisa, I just want to thank you for your class on publishing and pointing me in the right direction. I really appreciated your time and knowledge. Now to jump in." Sue Palmer




"I had a great time …each writer had something good to offer. The tone was welcoming and honest." Joanne Moore, East Lyme, Conn. 


"The accepting atmosphere helped me find the nerve and not indulge in my fear the audience would throw tomatoes at me." Steve Dorfman, writer and member of Laughworks Improv Troupe



Authors and musicians can purchase Lisa's writing and promotion services separately or take advantage of her publicity package that includes a TV interview on her show, Facebook page, blog and Google page setup, listing on her blog geared to groups looking for speakers/performers, and a one-page bio and press release write-up to be sent to her media contacts and yours. Contact her for package rates (which will depend on your desired package). To begin work, Lisa will need your headshot, resume, and website link. If you need a website and headshot, Lisa's preferred vendors can provide those services.

If you live in New London County, Connecticut, Lisa provides some free resources to help  you promote your events. Click on: Need Publicity for Your Event or Project?

How to Get Published (even if you're not thin and famous)

Many writers have asked me, "How can I get my story published?" In order to share what has (and has not) worked for me, I've written a FREE e-book, "How to Get Published," to help others find the same satisfaction I felt when publicly sharing my thoughts. You can find it at Smashwords: //

You can also purchase it in softcover if you prefer on Amazon:  How to Get Published (even if you're not thin and famous)

When trying to get a non-fiction book published, it is required to submit a book proposal. The publisher for my book, "Anything But a Dog! The perfect pet for a girl with congenital CMV," which is about a big, homeless dog's devotion to my disabled daughter, gave their permission for me to include my book proposal in my "How to Get Published" book. Readers can use it as a guide for their own proposals.
