74th Street Production re-issued their popular speaking guide for writers this month. Revised and updated, Naked at the Podium: The Writer’s Guide to Successful Readings takes tips from the actor’s trade to help authors feel more at ease during presentations. This latest edition is now available as an e-book for Kindle.
From the publisher’s description:
This practical book of tips, solutions and exercises was born of a writer’s angst: how to present material in a way that was appealing to bookstore audiences, flexible enough to use in non-traditional venues, and dramatic enough to keep any audience awake and eager to buy. Adapting the tools actors use to a writer’s particular needs cured the angst and made readings profitable and fun. Drama was the key. Filled with trade tricks, professional preparation techniques and survival tips, this book is an accessory that no author should leave home without.
