All books and events start with an idea and a dream. Let me help turn them into reality.
Authors are invited to apply for a consultation. I will read your book (or manuscript) and sit down with you in a session to discuss what event possibilities might be a good match for you and your budget. After the consultation, you can contract with me for events and the services you need to supplement them.
I also can give you referrals for marketing, publicity and publishing needs that you might have.
A limited number of clients are selected each year for The WritePros calendar so that I can give personalized and detailed attention to each event. Accepting very limited consultations in 2016.
2017-2018 Event calendar:
Sorry, no openings in
August, September, October or November 2017
March, April, May, June 2018
Please note that due to time and marketing limitations, I cannot accept all applications for consultations or for events.
In addition, I have opportunities throughout the year for authors to participate in the Appetizing Authors series at various locations in Connecticut and New York.
To request a consultation, or to let me know of your interest in participating at an Appetizing author event, contact me at
