"I'm a debut author with an indie press. A lot of the planning and marketing falls to me and I have no experience with planning book events. Caroline workshop was exactly what I needed! She covered all aspects of a book launch from promotion to choosing swag to picking and practicing a signing tag in advance. I came away with a lot of actionable ideas for my own launch and more confidence I can make it an awesome event."

"Caroline took an intimidating topic for introverted writers like me and made it feel doable and fun. I feel like I can succeed at a book launch event now thanks to her organization and obvious expertise! I really liked the breakdown, piece by piece, of all the elements in a good launch. A suggested agenda and exactly what was needed for each part was really helpful."

"Caroline's launch webinar was one of the most effective confidence-building experiences I've had as a debut author. Her tips were fresh, validating, uplifting and often unexpected. I'm so surprised by the sheer amount of information and ideas she shared that I hadn't thought of; truly a case of "not knowing what I didn't know". She has a wealth of knowledge that she delivers in a relatable, conversational way. Enthusiastically recommend."
