Instructor Biography

Linda Leon, Book Marketing Specialist, Author and Ghostwriter

My life changed the day I realized that I could make a living in writing independently. For me it was about having personal freedom and being home for my children. That was years ago and it has been an incredible and wonderful journey. I worked over 12 years in broadcast television, was a columnist for UPI, and had an excellent background in ghostwriting. I harnessed those talents and hit the entrepreneur road. The course that I am presenting will give you a glimpse of that journey, help you to produce and promote your e-book and hopefully inspire you that you can succeed in writing profitably.
