Marketing with a Mic

by Doyne Phillips, Managing Editor

Speakers with a following will often times write a book. Over the years I have enjoyed many of the books written by my favorite speakers. Their voice and cadence spill over into the reading as I read the book. When I am so familiar with their voice and delivery I tend to hear them reading the book to me as I read along. What an added pleasure!

You too can get your speaking voice out there with Mic Nite! Southern WritersMagazine has developed for you another great marketing tool. With Mic Nite an author can log in and promote their book, upcoming book, speaking engagements etc. in their own voice. It is very simple to do so.

Then visit Mic Nite on Saturday to see who's joined you on Center Stage this week!
