Pattie McKelvy (left) and Sheila Niles (right) of the Tuscan Village "Club Libre" book club, hosted Evans in February.

No fees for speaking, but please provide honest reviews of the novels on Amazon and Goodreads.

For Book Clubs

Pat enjoys speaking to book clubs, social clubs, and other organizations on the topic, "Truth or Fiction: Only the Author Knows For Sure." In this PowerPoint presentation, Evans uses examples from famous authors to illustrate how authors use truth as a germ for creativity, and how some writers have found themselves in legal or personal trouble for using a bit too much truth or too little. For distant cities, Evans utilizes Zoom.

For Libraries

Evans has a second presentation for libraries. Called, "Top 10 Ways to Improve Your Writing," this interactive talk helps writers of all levels make their writing stand out, whether it's an important email, a special presentation, or a book or novel. Evans also is happy to donate copies of her novels to libraries. Simply contact her at the button below.

For Writers' Conferences

A more targeted presentation for writers' organizations is "The Storyteller's Voice: Choosing a Narrator is a Novelist's Most Important Decision." In this PowerPoint presentation, Ms. Evans illustrates the major voices that tell our stories and how the choice of this narrator can makes or break a work.
