Hello Fellow Online Influencer!

If you’re here, it probably means you’re a blogger, podcaster or other online influencer looking for some content to help me promote Public Speaking Super Powers. The book comes out on September 25, 2018. Any press during the week of September 25 through October 2 would be hugely helpful (and of course after that too — but the first week is when I have the best shot at making a best-seller list).

This page is a resource to provide you with information and content you might need to help spread the word about my book. Please reach out if there is anything I can do to help you! I look forward to returning the favor in any way that I can.

Note: Please send me the link/s to anything you do – I want to make sure to promote your efforts on social media and on the website.

Book Description

If Public Speakers Were Superheroes, What Would Their Powers Be?
And could anyone develop those powers?

Author Carma Spence asked more than 85 speakers and found the answer to be, “Yes!” Although some people have a natural predisposition for developing speaking skills, anyone can learn to be a decent speaker.

Public Speaking Super Powers uses the metaphor of the superhero to turn the belief that only a few talented individuals can be good speakers on its ear. The book shows readers that all the factors, skills and techniques needed for success in speaking are learnable, attainable and achievable by anyone who chooses to make the effort to embody and use them.

Public speaking skills can help you grow your business…progress in your career…be more confident in your day-to-day life…even become a career in itself. Regardless of how you want to use presentation skills in your life, Public Speaking Super Powers will help you develop the abilities you need to succeed.


Facts About the Book

  • The Kindle version of the book is currently selling for under $10 on Amazon
  • Carma started the research for this book in 2010 by interviewing nearly 90 business and professional speakers.
  • The diamond-shaped logo on the cover was developed from an original painting created for this book.
  • The book has its genesis in a blog post written in 2010. You can read it here.

Sample Blurb You Can Use To Plug the Book

I’m excited to announce that my friend Carma Spence’s book — Public Speaking Super Powers: Unleash Your Inner Speaking Superhero and Communicate Your Message with Confidence — hits shelves this month! As Carma describes it, “I had some fun with the superhero/superpower metaphor with this book. Honestly, I wish I had this book when I first got started with speaking in high school. It demystifies the foundational skills and techniques you need to be an effective speaker. And provides actionable steps to help readers improve their skills immediately.”

This book is suitable for high school and college students, employees, managers, business owners — anyone who wants to become a better speaker. To learn more about the book, visit PublicSpeakingSuperPowers.com or purchase your copy on Amazon (a steal — the e-book is currently selling for under $10!). You can read more about Carma on her blog at CarmaSpence.com/blog and follow her on Twitter @carmap.
