“Finally! Someone willing to share the secrets of her success! Marie answered every question, for three straight hours, and covered everything from social media and promotion to the changes in the publishing industry. So many of our members walked away energized and ready to write. We’ll definitely invite her back to Austin!” —Sloane Calder, President, RWA Austin Chapter


“Marie’s Self-Pub 101 is chocked full of information, hints, suggestion and advice for writers at all levels. Generous with her knowledge, Marie shares her own experiences and expertise to help writers decide if self-publishing is for them and how to get started.” —Terri Brisbin, VP, RWA Valley Force Chapter
