Upcoming San Joaquin Sisters In Crime Speakers:

Program for September
We are very fortunate to have Eve Davidson Hernandez as our speaker for September. She is an award winning transformational speaker who has spoken to thousands of people and transformed lives by sharing what she learned through her hardships. Eve is an executive business coach, an author of several books and a long list of credentials in marketing. She generally charges significant speaking fees, but has agreed to waive those fees to come to speak to us.
In January, 2010, Eve was in the depths of depression:
“I was not published, had no following, and no one was calling me to speak. But still, I had a dream of where I wanted to be in life. The only thing that helped me through those dark times, was deciding I would write a book. Writing saved my life. That is why I speak to writers. That is why I reach back because I want to pull them out of their darkness, wherever that is, and show them that there is light on the other side.”

Eve has inspirational/motivational advice for all of us—not just writers. She has extensive experience with marketing her work and has worked with a 27 year veteran Hollywood producer to get her work into feature films.
Her presentation will include:
• Social Media; Facebook Business Fan Pages
• Types of Websites: Landing pages, one-page websites, and multi-page websites—and which to use.
• 3-types of Product launches
You will be glad you did not miss this meeting!
