Travel the World Without Leaving Home (Internet Research)

One of Abigail’s favorite aspects of being an author is getting to meet and swap experiences with other authors. Blend this with her corporate training experience, and you get some knockout workshops. She would be very happy to present one of her workshops to your writing group or organization. Each workshop can be tailored in terms of length and method of delivery (in person, online, skype, etc.).
