Susan RoAne gave a fascinating interview titled "Leveraging relationships and The Power of a Room to sell 1.2 million copies of your first book (like I did)". She approached different topics from being a teacher who was laid off, going on into speaking and working as a columnist, how she got the idea of writing a book, and her writing and marketing processes. I totally related to Susan from the first moment, maybe because we're both teachers... or were. But once a teacher, always a teacher!
Some of the amazing things she said: Her first book, How to Work a Room, published 26 years ago, is still going strong, among other reasons, because it's had four editions, each one with a launch. Another one is: "When somebody tells you that you can write, give them a real big hug and thank them, because they're sending you a message". And yet another: "Follow what people are saying. Listen to what people tell you".
