What participants are saying about
John Kremer's talks . . .

“Just wanted to let you know that I absolutely loved your workshop in Arizona. Resumes Are Dead and What to Do About It just hit #1 on Business and Investing, #1 in Careers, #1 in Job Hunting, #12 in Non-Fiction and broke the Top 100 of all free Kindle books today! What the?! This is a month after the launch. Happy to know it's still catching fire. Thanks for your help!” — Richard Norton, author of Resumes Are Dead and What to Do About It

“John Kremer spoke to us on March 7th about book marketing. He spoke until almost 9:45. A few people grabbed their cell phones to tell whoever was on the other end that they'd be coming home late, but no one left early. I couldn't and wouldn't try to summarize everything John said. He mixed some of the practical tips from his book with a perspective that gives an overarching meaning to all the things we do every day to sell our books. These activities are parts of life and living, much more a state of mind than a state of desperation. His presentation was enormously and uniquely valuable. Those who missed this event should be kicking themselves right now.” — Bob Goodman, San Diego Publishers Alliance

“I just spent some time listening to John Kremer speak last night. Wow! If you want to learn every angle to marketing, listen to John, look for his books, and sign up for his consulting. Anyone who devotes himself so faithfully to his craft is worth listening to...even just for 15 minutes. He tells you the best things to do and the worst things to do in the most succinct, common-sense manner. Awesome!” — Valerie Atkinson Brown, author

“Thank you again for being our speaker for the AMA seminar. I thought you would like to know that the evaluations were absolutely terrific. On a scale of 1 to 5, your presentation topic and content rated a 4 and your presentation rated a 4.14 with our attendees.” — Kim Mickelsen, Programming Chair, Omaha Chapter of the American Marketing Association

“I wanted to thank you so much for the presentation you did on the first day of PMA U. You have such a wealth of knowledge and your sense of humor was perfect after a long day of classes.” — Laura K. Bryant, Crimson Leaf Publishing

“Book marketing expert John Kremer was the keynote speaker. He not only gave us many, many tips about marketing, but also through his appealing personality and presentation skills showed us ways for wowing audiences and selling books. John, I thank you again for sharing your knowledge and inspiring this 'back of the room sales' cookbook author to new ways to market my books.” — Jane Trittipo, author/publisher, The Marvelous Microwave: Good Food in Practically No Time

“Many thanks for speaking to our Valley Independent Publishers. We found you very entertaining and certainly knowledgeable.... The audience of members and visitors seemed to hang on to all you had to say.” — Evelyn Barbee, VIP secretary

“The participants' written comments on the program evaluations say it best: Good info. Great value! Good points. In fact, your evaluation average was 9.03 out of a possible 10!” — Sarita Maybin-Anderson, Program Chair, National Speakers Association, San Diego Chapter

“Caught your schtick last night at Borders. I was reluctant about missing my Studebaker Drivers Club meeting in favor of your presentation. I made a good choice. Your passion is pervasive and you inspired me. Don't get all teared up. I figure you are probably tired of people telling you how encouraging you are but I want to take the risk you won't be bored by my comment. Thanx.” — Michael McKinney Black

“Every speaker was focused and to the point. Book promotion expert John Kremer spoke for two hours, and it seemed like he was just warming up when we had to stop for lunch. He hung around for the entire today, answering questions cheerfully and generally contributing to an overall good feel. His support, enthusiasm, and generosity infected everyone. I guarantee that any small publisher's group will get more than their money's worth if they bring John Kremer in to speak.” — Jon Sievert, author and publisher, Concert Photography: How to Shoot and Sell Music-Business Photographs

“You gave us the finest program on book promotion I can remember.” — Velda L. Cole-Moore, Florida Publishers Association

You are knowledgeable and your enthusiasm/passion for this business is an inspiration.” — Bob Sandstrom, Publisher, Stepping Stone Books

“Most of the attendees hadn't had the chance to hear you before, so the workshop on non-traditional book marketing was especially valuable. You always knock them dead.” — Karen Misuraca, Publisher, Lagoon Publications

“Just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed your speech. It was full of a lot of great concepts and proved once again why you're the guru of small publishing!” — Stephen Hall, Radio-TV Interview Report

“Book promotion expert John Kremer deserves the thanks of so many of us.

Thanks, John, for everything.” — Mary Westheimer

“We received valuable and practical information from a knowledgeable and entertaining speaker, and we met fascinating people with whom we shared information, experiences, and advice. It was truly a worthwhile expense and experience.” — Frances Keiser, Sagaponack Books

“I bought a $107 course on how to get free publicity a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was basically a rehash of material I'd already purchased. However, the package included 2 audio tapes of a seminar you did (back in '94 I believe) as free bonuses. The thing is, I learned more from those free audio tapes than from this guy's entire course. I could have saved that money and have gotten a consultation from you instead. Well, such is life.” — Ray Gailes, Gale Force Press

“Book promotion expert John Kremer — He's smart, creative and clever, and he knows how to help you sell books.” — Jon Bard, Editor, Children's Writing Update!
