Featured Book

The Shy Writer
by C. Hope Clark

Finally a book specifically forand aboutthe introverted writer! As an introvert, I (Kim Wilson) know first-hand the professional (and personal) challenges introverted writers face. Often the writing profession requires introverted writers to perform extroverted tasks, at best putting us in a very uncomfortable position. But in The Shy Writer, C. Hope Clarkalso an introvert—shows writers how to create boundaries, then work within their own level of comfort. Here's another good reason to read this book: The tools The Shy Writer provides are useful in both professional and personal settings. I highly recommend this book for all introverted writers.
