“Marie is so down-to-earth and reachable you’ll almost forget she’s this immensely successful author until… she shares with you her knowledge, insight, and experience. There are no gimmicks or quick fix in her suggestions. She helped me look at my writing career not just as the endless sum of short-term goals but as a long-haul flight.” —Marion Croslydon, Contemporary Romance Author – on the Writing Multiple Series Workshop

“Marie Force this has been an amazing workshop and I’ve begun to implement your thought provoking ideas I know I’ll refer back to this thread often. Thank you for sharing your wisdom as it would have taken years for me to learn what I’ve gleaned from the past week.” —Author Lucinda Race on the Marketing & Publicity Workshop

“Thank you Marie for your willingness to help other authors, such as myself, succeed. I appreciate everything and will be taking more of your classes in the future.” —Author Sarah Alabaster

“This has been an amazing workshop. I am so grateful that you take time to share your experience with other authors. Ever since I decided to go the self-publishing route I have been trying to learn as much as I can about the process to build my business plan. I have been building my resources and you are the gold standard of resources for me. Thank you so much for this workshop and all your efforts to help other authors.”  –Author Elizabeth Spaur on the Write Your Way to Readers Who Stick

“Marie Force’s Marketing & Publicity workshop is wicked smart, full of instantly usable information, a carefully thought out road map to success. Highly recommended.” –Lisa Marie Rice


Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
