IF PUBLIC SPEAKERS WERE SUPERHEROES, WHAT WOULD THEIR SUPERPOWERS BE? AND, COULD YOU DEVELOP THOSE SUPERPOWERS YOURSELF? 

Author Carma Spence asked these questions of dozens and dozens of speakers and discovered the answer was, "Yes!"

Three out of every four people suffer from speech anxiety, and research suggests that people who don’t confront and overcome that fear are less successful in their careers and lives. However, people often look at successful speakers as superheroes with superpowers they, as mere mortals, could never possess.

Drawing from extensive research and interviews with business and professional speakers, Public Speaking Super Powers will show you how to:

↪ How to overcome the fear of speaking
↪ Develop the skills needed to be a success on the stage, such as storytelling and humor
↪ Master techniques like a superhero speaker, such as audience engagement, and using your voice, body language and eye contact effectively

and much more... There is even a bonus chapter on the business of speaking.

Unleash your inner Public Speaking Superhero and communicate your message with confidence starting today!

  3. Thank you for helping spread the word about "Public Speaking Super Powers." I love your tagline: "covering book covers and the stories behind them." My book cover actually has a story behind it. If you'd like to know it, let me know! :-)

    1. Thank you, CS! A great book cover is what initially draws me to a book - but ultimately, the story behind it is what keeps me turning pages. ;) I'd love to hear the story behind your cover. :)

    2. Short version, my mother is an artist and did an original painting for the cover that I was going to use. However, I couldn't get it to look right. So, I took the painting and created the diamond shape logo from it. The cover went through many design iterations. This final one also had input from my husband who is a comic book fan. That's where the tilt and the shadow, as well as the touch of blue, come from. I'm really happy with out it turned out.
