Author Judi Hollis and Her Star

Reserve today for multiple best-selling author Judi Hollis, Ph.D., who will visit the IWOSC Westside Satellite, on March 20, 12:30 Pacific on Zoom. And fasten your seatbelt, as she'll share her insights candidly – gleaned from a writer's journey that has lasted decades.

Los Angeles, CA | March 12, 2021. When you read From Bagels to Buddha, a memoir by best-selling author Judi Hollis PhD, you may notice essential qualities that help fuel author success – grit, tenacity and egotism. The fun part is that she shares these aspects of herself in the book with humor and self-awareness.  

What else leads to long-term author success? "You've got to be a tiger mom about your book," she advises, "Because nobody cares about it as much as you do."

Dr. Hollis will be interviewed by Editor/Book Coach Robin Quinn, host of the IWOSC Westside Satellite on Saturday, March 20th, starting at 12:30 pm Pacific. The "Creating Long-Life Success as an Author" program will also include short readings by the author from Fat Is a Family Affair (over 500,000 copies sold!) and best-seller From Bagels to Buddha, as well as a motivating writing exercise for attendees.

Topics include:

o The importance of agents

o Evolving as a thinker and as a writer

o The importance of publicists

o The power of influencer endorsements (Judi was selected as one of Dr. Oz' ShareCare Experts.)

o Maintaining your relationship with publishers over time

o Staying relevant

o Branching out into workbooks, video, film and your own radio show or podcast

o Balancing career and personal time

Registration closes at noon, on Friday, March 19.

"I always say that I have been extremely lucky," says Dr. Hollis. "On the other hand, I have a little sign on my desk that says, 'The harder I work, the luckier I get.' You must do the footwork."

The IWOSC Westside Satellite is sponsored by the Independent Writers of Southern California, a Los-Angeles-based group for indie writers that was founded almost 40 years ago. IWOSC regularly presents a wide range of programming relevant to writers on the craft and business of writing. Currently offered on Zoom, the meetings are open to writers around the world as well as down the block. https://iwosc.org/

For almost fifty years, Dr. Judi Hollis has been featured by CNN, Extra, Inside Edition, Oprah, Shape, Glamour, Self and Cosmopolitan, while practicing as a marriage and family counselor and maintaining her own 80-pound weight loss.
