“Need a primer on grant writing? Look no further than Victoria Johnson‘s Grant Writing 101: Everything You Need to Start Raising Funds Today, just out from McGraw-Hill.”

So writes our host’s hometown newspaper, the San Jose Mercury News, about her new book.

The 288-page labor of love (and sweat) tackles such timely topics as tactics for writing a compelling proposal and finding the best grantor for your needs, while also offering dozens of proven proposal templates and research techniques for identifying the best grantors.

“Churches, Little Leagues, museums, libraries could all benefit from her experience,” adds the Mercury News of Victoria, who’s a professional grant writer for the city of San Jose.

So if you too have got a new book, particularly within a niche in which you dominate, consider launching a BlogTalkRadio show of your own to connect more directly with your audience and with the media.
