Maverick Authors Buck the System and Follow Their Dreams… to West Hollywood!

September 13, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Los Angeles, California (FPRC), September 13, 2007 – Shantelle!, the charismatic author of “Confessions of an Internet Model”, is joining forces with UCLA Extension’s Master Teacher, Pam Kelly, author of “Speak with Passion, Speak with Power!”, at the esteemed West Hollywood Book Fair, on September 30 from 10am-6pm, at the West Hollywood Park, 647 N. San Vicente Blvd, West Hollywood,CA 90069.

Shantelle established herself as a successful internet model after going up against the traditional system. “Every time I went to an audition, I would hear ‘too short’, ‘too tall’, ‘too this’, ‘too that’ and be sent packing”, Shantelle explains. “In a way, they were doing me a favor, because I started looking for alternative ways of modeling and discovered the internet!” Shantelle turned rejection into success and shares her adventures in “Confessions of an Internet Model”, along with valuable tips for aspiring models.

“I asked Pam to share a booth with me,” Shantelle shares, “because Pam also had to go outside the box to develop her career as a communications consultant and you really get a sense of this in ‘Speak with Passion, Speak with Power!’ “ Kelly has trained thousands of professionals to be the best speakers and communicators they can be…but she started off as a farm girl in Tennessee! Shantelle muses, “I think the point is that she’s not afraid to take chances!”

Shantelle promises that their booth will be colorful and will feature fun events throughout the day, including book signings, exclusive giveaways, photo shoots, and more!
