I met Don Loyd at a writers and speakers group several years ago in Colorado. He was very generous in sharing with new writers his expertise in writing, publishing and marketing.  


It is due to Don's encouragement, instruction and  vast knowledge of the writing/marketing  process, that I now have my first published book.


In addition to being a current member of my focus group, he is a great friend and giving teacher.


Most of all, Don is an encourager!


If he is offering a class in writing, or anything else for that matter - do yourself a favor and sign up right away - it will indeed be worth your time and investment.
