Last week, I had the pleasure of presenting “Unlocking LinkedIn: Finding Your Dream Job or Client” to my favorite technical writing community, the Wisconsin chapter of the Society for Technical Communication.

Had to fight through Internet connection troubles, but it was a good conversation with the assembled technical writers.

Have a look at the slides, then use the comments to tell me your LinkedIn stories, or ask a question. I’m all ears.

The August issue of the Midwest Book Review “Wisconsin Book Watch” said some really nice things in a brief review of Build Your Author Platform: The New Rules. Here’s the line that made me smile the broadest:

Replete with pragmatic and illustrative book marketing lessons, examples, success stories, and a wealth of tips and techniques, “Build Your Author Platform: The New Rules: A Literary Agent’s Guide to Growing Your Audience in 14 Steps” will prove to be an enduringly valuable addition to personal, professional, academic, and community library Writing/Publishing instructional reference collections. Very highly recommended to writers aspiring to become successful authors

Based just outside of Madison, Wisconsin, The MBR is oriented toward independent authors and small presses. Editor James A. Cox looks especially to help independent booksellers and librarians of all kinds find the best books that don’t always get the marketing push of the Big Five. Thanks!

Go read the whole review (and the whole August issue).
