Surviving Different Author Personalities
Allen Arnold


During his twenty years at Thomas Nelson, Allen Arnold was the publisher for hundreds of novelists. Before that, he was Marketing VP for hundreds of well-known, best-selling nonfiction authors. From winsome experiences to explosive author encounters to difficult internal conversations, Allen understands the importance of protecting one’s heart.

This workshop is for editors who have dealt with authors who rejected their corrections. It is also for those who often feel invisible while enduring author egos and unrealistic expectations. Allen shares practical ways to navigate the maze of author personalities without losing your confidence or your sanity.
