Editorial Reviews


"Drawing from the experiences of in-the-trenches everyday speakers, Carma Spence has taken a fun concept of superheroes and translated it into public speaking skills. A comprehensive look at excelling in front of an audience, Public Speaking Super Powers is both accessible and useful for speakers who want to develop their speaking super powers. Highly recommended!"
Felicia J. Slattery, M.A., M.Ad.Ed.,
Best-Selling Author of

"It's not every day that someone puts in the amount of research, time, and care on a topic that is so misunderstood and so poorly taught by perceived influencers in the public speaking space. Carma's unique approach to unlocking your superpowers and unleashing your speaking skills is a fresh, practical, and accessible manual for anyone who wants to break into the speaking world."
Davide Di Giorgio
Speaker, Coach and Author of
Being Unapologetic

From the Author

Public Speaking Super Powers all started with a blog post. It was very popular, so I thought that it could be easily expanded into a book. I wrote the book, in part, because the idea was there and it excited me. But I also wrote the book because I found that there are very few--if any--public speaking books out there that cover the whole set of skills required to be an effective speaker. Most focus on one small aspect, such as TED talks or persuasive speaking. Public Speaking Super Powers was created to be a strong foundational book that will give readers the basics they need to communicate before groups effectively. I know it will help students, small business owners and entrepreneurs alike be more successful in their lives and businesses.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I help entrepreneurs, small business owners, and mid-level executives unleash their content creation superpowers and communicate their message with confidence so they can create a meaningful and fulfilling legacy. I do this primarily through helping them write and market their non-fiction book based on the knowledge between their ears even if they've never written before and are crazy busy.

An international best-selling author, award-winning editor and speaker, with more than 20 years' experience in marketing, public relations, and science communication, Carma is a multi-dimensional entrepreneur, science fiction writer, and poet.

After earning a master’s degree from the University of Maryland College Park in Journalism (from the number one public relations program in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report), Carma developed a career as a corporate science writer. Her ability to understand high-level science (she holds a bachelor’s degree in Biology) and translate it for a lay audience, coupled with her marketing and public relations training, enabled her to help employers such as City of Hope National Medical Center, Blue Shield of California and the National Human Genome Research Institute gain local and national exposure, and improve customer and employee communications.

Carma performed pro bono work for KRCB Public Television, the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, and the North Bay Career Resource Center. She has promoted wines from Texas, South Africa, and the elite Champagne Deutz, and helped pioneer a website for pediatric professionals.

With the increasing importance of the Internet in marketing communications, Carma developed expertise in online presence and strategy. Her books, "Home Sweet Home Page" and "57 Secrets for Branding Yourself Online" (from Logical Logical Expressions Publishing) have received positive reviews and help numerous entrepreneurs improve their online presence. She has worked with best-selling author Cynthia Kersey, fitness expert Wendy Ida and speaker/entertainer Cindy Ashton.

Carma has been a writer since she was four. Her love of travel (she grew up in East Africa), along with her passion for science fiction, propelled her to create the online travel resource for science fiction, fantasy and horror fans, The Genre Traveler. She is also working on a multi-media history and sociology of science fiction, titled Yesteryear’s Future. And, she has recently launched a science fiction film and television review video podcast with her husband, called C-Squared.

Her two cookbooks, "Bonkers for Bundt Cakes" and "Your Perfect Pie," can be found online at Amazon and

Her latest book is "Public Speaking Super Powers," became an Amazon Kindle bestseller and was a Top 10 Finalist in the Author Academy Awards. She is also working on several other titles.

As a speaker, Carma has received several awards, including a lifetime membership to the National Forensic League. She has been a member of Toastmasters since 1989, where she earned her Distinguished Toastmaster award, the highest award Toastmasters awards recognizing accomplishments in communications and leadership.

The wind beneath her clients’ wings, Carma's superpower is to help her clients see what is possible for them and guide them on the journey from where they are to where they want to be, Vanquishing the Mind Goblins of self-doubt, self-sabotage and second-guessing that keep them stuck.
