Janet Fuller: “Rosen believes that publicity must be based on honesty and integrity. She has coined a term, “inspirational publicity”, to describe publicity that isn’t about making big money but is instead honest and real.”
Edie Weinstein: “Rosen encourages educated risk taking … She speaks of the leaps of faith that authors need to take as they birth their ‘baby’ out into the world … Believing in oneself and one’s creation are stepping stones that can lead to the desired success. She uses the term “Inspirational Publicity” to spread the word about what she refers to as “books that bless” and make a difference in the world.”
Adam Fuller: “Great, short introduction to what authors need to promote their books. I love the design and layout, which is pleasing to the eye and easy to navigate. The writing is crisp, clear, and straight to the point.”
