Who is considered a shy or reserved person? He/she is an introvert, someone who loves details but hates talking to people. Extroverts are fast paced, demanding, throwing out quick thinking snappy answers, they group brainstorm, and easily adapt to constant change with excess energy to compete. Introverts thrive in just the opposite atmosphere - where they are energized by thoughts, ideas, and perceptions.


In today’s world you can't get what you want in life without networking. The Shy Writer helps readers to identify their “natural” trait –making a lasting impression.


Clark has designed this book mainly to point out that there’s nothing wrong with being shy. It also provides step-by-step advice for overcoming one’s shyness and fears. Specifically when marketing one’s work. Clark covers such topics as: Telephone conversations, audiences, book signings, promotion, gimmicks, interviews, media and more.


Sooner or later every writer will need to face the reality of self-promotion. Clark’s, The Shy Writer may just help make the transition of feeling self-confident in a room full of strangers a bit easier! The book will also show how you also need to reveal things about yourself – to followers, and the best way is by telling fun and interesting stories that make you look good.


This is one book certain to help any writer who suffers from stage fright or marketing frustration. Coming from one who had to overcome these very fears – I wish I had found this book sooner! The Shy Writer is truly a treasure to add to any library collection.
