Scribd Love Affair at Southern California Writer’s Conference

» Posted | 0 comments

My Scribd love affair continues to deepen month after month.

This weekend, I’m honored to return to the fabulous Southern California Writers Conference where I’ll be speaking about Growing Your Readership with Scribd.com.

You’ll know why I love telling other writers how I’ve built my writing platform when you read what Michael Steven Gregory, Executive Director of The Southern California Writers Conference, wrote about my phenomenal Scribd.com journey:

(Hyla’s) first time attending a writers’ conference was last February’s SD24.  Net result, three agents requesting her memoir, Drop Dead Life: A Pregnant Widow’s Heartfelt and Often Comic Journey through Death, Birth,  and Rebirth.  Then a funny thing happened.  She discovered the social reading and publishing website Scribd.com  and amassed 80,000 reads, prompting two of New York’s Big Six to contact her directly requesting the manuscript.  Numerous speaking requests and interviews followed.  Just how she built such a singular, massive platform — and you can too — is what she’ll be addressing in February.”ebruary’s SD24.  Net result, three agents requesting her memoir, Drop Dead Life: A Pregnant Widow’s Heartfelt and Often Comic Journey through Death, Birth, and Rebirth.  Then a funny thing happened.  Hyla discovered the social reading and publishing website Scribd.com and amassed 80,000 reads prompting two of New York’s Big Six to contact her directly requesting the manuscript.  Numerous speaking requests and interviews followed.  Just how she built such a singular, massive platform — and you can too — is what she’ll be addressing in February.
