The Booher Book Camp is simply miraculous. In 3 short days, an author-to-be, or an author with only an idea, can write a full book proposal and a query letter, learn how to negotiate contracts, and find out so much about the publishing industry. Dianna is the master. Dianna takes the intimidation out of the process.
I’ve learned much from Dianna over the years about writing and publishing. Whenever I had a question, she was the first person I’d call. Her expertise is both deep and wide and you’ll benefit richly from her ideas and insights.”
I couldn’t have asked for a more thorough, well organized, and entertaining book camp. Dianna presented the materials in a logical, clear, and concise manner filled with real-life examples. The pace of the course was designed to get us through the most critical subjects in the workbook, yet left adequate time for drafting and critiquing sample language and asking questions. The workbook is a valuable tool and reference guide for creating and promoting not only an author’s first book but also subsequent books.
I loved the small class and personal attention. Dianna is the preeminent expert, and I felt so fortunate to be learning from her for 3 days! Before this class, I had only a desire. After this class, I have a concrete idea, a pitch, and a plan! I am energized about my book!
The BBC is a rollercoaster ride of information—all of it usable, practical, and needed in crafting your first or next book! The feedback from Dianna and the fellow attendees was priceless in shaping and honing my thoughts into concrete ideas and directions.
I walked out with drafts of the specific documents necessary to launch my book project and a plan for how to make it happen this year. This alone made the course worthwhile. But I actually walked out with much more−a vision of how to use this book project to re-create by business, launch new products, and build a platform for meteoric growth−and the confidence to make it happen. That made the course a life-changing event for me.
Dianna is the Queen of Book Writing! She has perfected every step of producing a best seller. Not only does she understand the book-writing process, she shares it all with you! I know because I have benefited from her expertise.
Just completed the deal and got the contract on my third book! After applying the principles I learned at the workshop, this latest contract is much better than my first. Thanks, Dianna!

What a great mix of information and practical exercises! My brain hurts from all the material, but I know it’s all important and integrated into the bigger picture.
The Booher Book Camp content is overflowing with solid structure, examples, and specific how-to’s for getting started, and then taking us all the way through to working with agents and publishers. I appreciated the flow and flexibility to spend more time on an area, if needed. I definitely learned a great deal about the whole writing process, and will be able to put so much of the content to use as I begin to develop my book. The workshop is extremely well-organized and has content that is “chunked” in such a way to make it very easy to use in a step-by-step format.
What a quantum leap in knowledge and understanding of the publishing world. With these tips, tools and Dianna’s guidance, I believe that I have a good chance at landing a major publisher for my book.
BBC was incredible! I had high expectations and Dianna far exceeded them. I feel totally confident to create a thorough, compelling, and professional book proposal. Not only did we learn about proposals, but Dianna also shared with us her own book writing process. Very helpful! I strongly recommend Booher Book Camp to anyone who is interested in publishing a best-selling book.
Great value for the price for what you get. . . . I feel very confident about moving forward.
Excellent insight into the world of publishing with one of the big 5 publishing houses.
One of the best professional development programs for speakers I have been through. I wish I would have taken it before I published my first book because of all the mistakes I made and bad advice I had received. Dianna Booher, thank you!
I’m speechless! What an incredible experience! I really wish I had written down everything I thought I knew about writing a book and getting it published before the book camp. I am astonished at how far off I was in my understanding and I am relieved to know that I am on the right path now. I had so many myths running through my mind that I wasn’t even aware of. After participating in the book camp, I came out grounded with a plan on how to be successful. The workshop that helped me focus my thoughts for the book(s) also helped me focus my writing for patient documentation. I know that I am already benefiting at work, and in the future when my book is published! Like training an athlete for a great race, coach Dianna has shown me where I need to focus my training and given me encouragement to work even harder. Thank you, Coach!
I liked the fast pace, never had time for my ADA mind to wander. Dianna was an excellent presenter. I love that she did not showcase. It was not all about her, but instead about the truths of the writing and publishing industry. Yet, there was enough personal for me to know she’s been there! And when I implement her system, it will save me time, money, and mistakes.
This was superb in every way. The three days flew by very quickly as it was both informative and stimulating. You absolutely know this field, and I felt like I was learning something completely new in every session. And at the end of the conference? I was ready to go write! Great motivation and equipping. Thank you!
Dianna has an incredible grasp of the nuances that make effective communications. I have used her “Idea Wheel” process to organize my thoughts for writing a book and found it to be extremely helpful. She is very experienced working through the communications challenges that business executives face and is an expert at providing solutions. Highly recommend!
Dianna is one of the biggest experts on the topic of communication. As her editor, it’s been an honor to work with someone with such a successful background, both as an author and as a speaker. She knows her audience and delivers exactly what they want. And if you want information on how to take your communication skills to the next level, Dianna is a great resource.
My proposal has come a LONG way since we discussed my summary, AND I just signed a contract with Wiley to publish the book. Thank you so much for your guidance.
Dianna and I met at a speaking convention…and had I met her earlier, I wouldn’t have made mistakes during my book publishing journey. Dianna is a luminary in her field…When I asked her to review my book proposal, she provided an arsenal of advice and asked a series of questions that drew out my strengths (that I didn’t even know to include), pinpointed my deficient areas, and ultimately led me to develop a robust document of 54 pages, up from an incomplete one of 14. In short, Dianna is an accomplished professional—one whom I greatly admire—whose experience, expertise, and wisdom are unmatched.
Dianna Booher will not only save you weeks, but years. This workshop helps you stay out of costly problems and spotlights valuable opportunities.
Taking Dianna Booher’s Get Your Book Published program was one of the wisest business decisions I’ve made. The program itself was outstanding. The course material was detailed, practical and very helpful…and Dianna’s guidance and assistance with my contract questions and finding a literary agent were pivotal to me publishing with Wiley. If it wasn’t for her, I’m sure I wouldn’t have gotten the book deal that I did. I felt like she was my personal book whisperer.
Outstanding…from both a content and learning standpoint. The manual is phenomenal. I am more motivated than ever to complete the book. Thank you for an outstanding experience.
I’ve been struggling and struggling to get the book done. Then I heard your system, and it made such good sense. You made it so simple. I walked out of your session and just went home and did it in a few days.
I listened to your writing program presented in Washington, DC. WOW! Wish I had known you before I started on this publishing path. I learned so much and had so many of my own experiences validated by you. You are my hero!
It’s not easy finding speakers to meet the diverse needs of our conference attendees….The feedback we got from your presentation has been incredibly positive. Dianna, your insights on specific situations our members face every day were so enlightening.
The session was fantastic. I only heard positive things about it. The only thing I would do differently would be to book you longer. The group really got a lot out of your session. I appreciate all of your hard work and I look forward to working with you in the future.
Thank you again for the session yesterday. You were present with the group, made it relevant to our line of work and we felt significant even if we are a small organization in the range of your clientele. You certainly demonstrated effective communication in a comfortable yet challenging way and provided concrete skills that we will definitely follow up on here. You gave me much to work with.

I have had the pleasure of attending numerous programs that Dianna Booher has presented on communications and book writing. She is extremely qualified to speak on both subjects, and her audiences have always walked away with real-world information to use immediately.
The training I received from Dianna revolutionized my business writing and public speaking. The greatest increase in my personal development was learning to be concise, clear, and persuasive in both emails and public speaking.
It is a pleasure to speak to the relevant information you provided to the attendees of the CPC Job Connections Career Summit… It was apparent by the enthusiastic reaction from the audience that you came well prepared to deliver helpful communication techniques and resources. Everyone I spoke with said that your presentation will benefit them in future professional communication . I also want to commend the team that supports you. Their assistance helps you execute a program that is both impactful and memorable.
Simply incredible: Specific. Relevant. Engaging. Credible. Of all the communication and executive speakers I have experienced in 30 years of business, Dianna is clearly one of the best, if not the best, speaker I have heard.
I recently contracted Dianna Booher to speak at one of our area-wide publishing events on the topic of persuasive communication. Our audience spanned novice to upper-level executives. From the audience comments afterward, Dianna did an excellent job in giving them great take-away value. In her highly interactive session, she did a great job of applying research from her latest book to specific workplace issues. In preparing for the event, I found Dianna to be very flexible, accommodating, and detail-oriented.
I first connected with Dianna Booher at an NSA conference ten years ago at her session on how to write a book in 8 weeks. The model and process she presented was clear and do-able and her presentation style was engaging. Dianna delivers quality and I recommend her for anyone looking to improve their writing and communication skills.
The event succeeded our (high) expectations. Yesterday Scott spent considerable time relating our experience to the CEO of the company we are working closely with; I expect you will be hearing from him….There is a good possibility we will engage you for another event.
Your presentation itself was very dynamic and energetic—I especially like your use of humor to illustrate some very important communication concepts. I suppose there is a degree of pressure for a speaker who is known as a ‘communication expert.’ But you certainly demonstrate that expertise and walk the talk!
Absolutely a wonderful two days….Many participants commented on how practical your insights were and how they walked away with ways to apply what you taught. I enjoyed our time together and appreciated your energy and effort to meet our needs. I am looking forward to other chances to work with you in the future!
As I stated, you’re not just among the best, you are the best…the gold standard of communication experts … so thank you again for a very successful and effective event.
Everyone is still talking about the Leadership Conference and the first thing they are mentioning still yet is how much they loved your content and style (engaging, dynamic, etc.). I hope this is the beginning of us staying connected and your firm making a new on-going client relationship.
The work you put into preparing your presentation was reflected in the synergy of your message with the day’s purpose, Frito-Lay Technology’s philosophy, and the other speakers. The feedback we received to date has been extremely positive.
It was truly the highlight of my year.
Outstanding. Dianna does an amazing job of distilling complicated ideas into manageable information. Great job of digging into each attendee’s unique challenges. Patient, enthusiastic, and very focused.
Thanks so much for what you did yesterday—sharing your wisdom and knowledge. I now have a dozen more questions…. So much learning packed into four hours!
