"The author knows her audience, and the fact that the book is tailored to writers—notorious neurotics, over-thinkers, and over-explainers—makes for an especially informative and enjoyable read. Fasbinder’s candid yet comforting delivery makes it feel as though she’s with readers every step of the way, offering a thumbs-up from the back of the room. A lean, helpful primer for authors who want to succeed as speakers." —Kirkus Reviews

In the accessible, straightforward From Page to Stage, seasoned author Betsy Graziani Fasbinder offers readers the why, what, and how of public speaking, along with exercises and resources to support ongoing learning. She provides inspiration and encouragement to help writers to overcome their fears of public speaking, but she doesn't stop there; she also lays out the practical, nuts-and-bolts tools they need to select, deselect, and arrange the content of what to say when they're on a podium, in an interview, or in casual conversations about their writing, and includes a model for handling challenging questions from interviewers and audience members with confidence and grace. Part practical how-to -- full of usable tools and tips--and part author cheerleader and champion, this is the ultimate resource for writers who wish bring their storytelling skills to their speaking opportunities.
