Was very helpful and encouraging for a not-so-techy old gal.

I received my copy of “Create Your Writer Platform” a couple days ago and I am devouring it! I’ve been building my platform for about two years now, but I know it can be better. I’m finding so many great ideas on how to improve from this book, and I’m only half-way through. Thank you to Chuck for writing this and so many other fabulous resources for writers.
