Lulu Speaker Series: Marketing Specialist Diana M. Needham

In February we introduced a new web series featuring publishing and marketing experts. We kicked off the series by welcoming Diana M. Needham, a local book marketing consultant, to the Lulu office to share her journey on becoming an author. She also shared some great tips on “Getting Started Writing a Book.”

As a book marketing consultant, Needham first asks her clients five questions. “It all starts with your big why. Why are you writing this book? What is it that is inside of you that is compelling you to get this message out? When you can be really clear about your ‘big why,’ you can continue the momentum and actually get the book finished.”
