Have you started a writing career but feel overwhelmed with the new standard for writers? Yes, you must also be a blogger, have a newsletter, a platform, do interviews, brand yourself, find a niche, hold book signings and be a social media star…or at least that’s what they tell you. If all of that terrifies you because you are an introvert than The Shy Writer Reborn can help. C. Hope Clark has done all of it and more and honestly shares all of the fears and anxieties that come along with the writing journey in today’s world. Seventeen full chapters, written in a conversational tone, address “You, the Introverted Writer” from the starts of your writing career through the book signings, writing conferences and interviews. Helpful exercises at the end of each chapter prompted meaningful writings and introspective thoughts and helped me rethink my future as a freelance writer, blogger and poet. Even if you don’t consider yourself an introvert there are helpful techniques, tools and ideas for queries, pitches, interviews, marketing, professional speaking and selling your words and your brand. Clark offers real life solutions to fearful situations you will encounter if you choose the path of a writer. What is stopping you from being a successful writer? Do you need a guide to gently push you to the next level?

In full disclosure, I received a review copy of The Shy Writer Reborn: An Introverted Writer’s Wake-up but I’ve been a paid subscriber of Funds for Writers ( C. Hope Clark’s newsletter) for several years and I’m a big fan of her mystery series. See below.

    Even though I'm at home with electronic pursuits, I have more of an issue with publicly promoting things. I'm an introvert / ambivert. I've put this book on my TBR list. Great lens.
