“Debra Rogers is a phenomenal speaker and was the highlight of my writers’ retreat. She not only motivated the participants with inspiring stories, she also gave them very practical information with which to kick start their future successes. I cannot say enough positive things about Deb’s warmth, her energy, her approachability, and her intelligence. I hope to invite her back for every retreat!”
– Kathy Boutry, Director of Seedling Writer’s Retreat, Malibu
“Debra, thank you so much for speaking to us at the 2015 Seedling Writers Retreat! Before your training session, I didn’t know how to go about getting my work published in a way that wouldn’t break my wallet. I did my research after you left, and sure enough, your method is the best way for me to realize my dream. The route I was going to take would have cost me nearly seven thousand dollars! I hope to see you again at the next retreat, I’m working hard on my book so that the next time I see you, I can say thank you Debra Rogers for doing me a favor!”
– Larry Young, HLRC Tutor, West Los Angeles College
“Debra Rogers presented an eye-opening and page-turning seminar. Amazingly informative, Debra offered a number of ways that writers can get their work “out there” and published. She explained a number of avenues for publishing in today’s marketplace that I never knew existed. Based on her recommendations, I’ll be submitting my own work this fall! A personable presenter, Debra’s enthusiasm was inspiring and helped set the roomful of writers on fire! Her marketing and publicity ideas are top notch and I am eager to put them into action!”
– Tom Jackson, Teacher & former Senior Content Writer (Universal Studios)
“Debra Rogers laid her experience bare in her book, He Did You a Favor, and she brought the same honesty and humor to her presentation on making your book a marketing success. She shared her hard-won understanding of what works and what doesn’t with clarity, charm, and a disarming ability to tell a story about telling a story. I came away with a notebook full of ideas and author-hacks, most of which I would never have thought of without Debra’s insight and answers. Bottom line: Debra can save anyone smart enough to consult her an enormous amount of trial and error in their own efforts to self-publish successfully.”
