“Dana’s knowledge of the subject matter and publishing industry was quite impressive – offering advice on character development, descriptive settings and prose to make your manuscript stand out from the thousands of submissions agents, reviewers and publishing houses receive every day. I would recommend this workshop to aspiring writers and experienced writers alike.”

April Schwarzkopf

Blog Editor and Librarian, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library

“There are a lot of so-called social-media “experts” out there, but Dana’s the real deal. An engaging, personable storyteller full of actionable insights, she empowered our members with creative ways to use social media and make the most of the medium. Highly recommend her to anyone looking to take their marketing to the next level!”

Brooke O’Neill

Chicago Women in Publishing

“Dana Kaye’s presentation at Left Coast Crime 2012 was insightful and informative.  Her easy to understand approach to publicity allowed me to generate ideas of what I could do to improve my own standing in the social media world.”

Robin Burcell

Left Coast Crime

“Dana Kaye’s ‘Spreading Your Marketing Virus’ was one of our most well-attended workshops at the RT Booklovers Convention in Chicago. Not only did attendees walk away with a better understanding of how to use Social Media, they also learned about marketing in a digital age.”

Carol Stacy

Publisher of RT Book Reviews and RT Booklovers Convention Director

“Dana was a great choice as a speaker for our group of published and unpublished writers. She was happy to share her most innovative marketing ideas with us, and she wasn’t afraid to let us know which strategies don’t work. She had advice for every budget, from how to use free social media outlets to how to employ print media. Dana recognizes that writers struggle to fit in marketing efforts around writing, and she gave us concrete ways to balance our time. We all walked away with plenty of fresh ideas.”

AJ Larrieu

Romance Writers of America
