Testimonials:

“Maria, I just participated in your “Marketing your Book” webinar and thought it was fantastic.  Your presentation was not only professional, well organized, and insightful, but also very in-depth, with many detailed examples and supporting references, particularly about how to attack the social networking space.  I now have a serious set of tangible marketing tools from which to kick start the marketing of my book, not to mention inspiration, which you provided in droves!  Thanks again.”
—Jackie Townsend, author of Reel Life: A Novel, a must read for anyone who’s ever sneaked off to the movies in the middle of a workday

“Maria’s webinar gave me a complete marketing plan. I took over three pages of notes! Even with a background in marketing, I still found this webinar a worthy investment and a great way to focus my efforts to promote my book. It was full of creative, actionable ideas that even apply to non-fiction writers like myself. I highly recommend you listen in.”
—Amanda H. Young, www.simplifiedmom.com

“Maria Murnane’s webinar on marketing your book is absolutely invaluable to any author, but especially to people who are self-publishing or thinking about that ‘great American novel.’ Maria walks you through a comprehensive and common sense approach for authors who have built it, now what? For writers who have a little bit of experience in the market, I found it to be extremely affirming in acknowledging that some of the marketing I was doing, was what I should be doing. Even then, there were contacts, ideas, and approaches that I hadn’t thought of and immediately put into practice. For an author or author-to-be, it is a required course.”
—Mark Williams, author of Holy Ground
