Teaching Women Nonfiction Authors How to Get Publicity and Turn Media Interviews Into Marketing Assets

Media interviews are only marketing assets if you’re truly prepared so it’s my mission to teach women nonfiction authors like you how to maximize every media opportunity.

If you’ve been trying to navigate publicity on your own, you’ve probably discovered that the media landscape is confusing and complicated.

Well that’s about to change. Because I have lived in control rooms and edit rooms and TV studios for decades. Plus, I’ve spent quite a bit of time in green rooms preparing to be interviewed myself. So I’m here to give you unprecedented access to how things really work in Media.

Guided by an Oprah Show veteran with access to behind-the-scenes insights, insider tips, and industry secrets, you’ll have the advantage over thousands of other authors who are out there struggling to get publicity and do game-changing media interviews.

 I believe traditional Media is the most powerful path to success for nonfiction authors like you – if you know how to use it.

Most authors have no idea how to harness that power to expand their audience, boost their credibility, and actually move the needle on book sales. But I do, and I can teach you.

I’m Mary O’Donohue

 With 12 seasons on The Oprah Winfrey Show, as a Post Producer and Associate Director, plus years on NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, and Meet the Press, and stints in local TV news and radio, I am the definition of a Media Insider.

But my decades of experience in media haven’t all been behind the scenes. I am also a #1 bestselling author and parenting expert who has been featured in television, radio, print and online interviews. In fact, a single media interview catapulted my book When You Say Thank You, Mean It to bestseller status on Amazon in 12 hours, not only becoming #1 in Parenting (a massive category) but also breaking into the top 100 overall out of millions of books.

That’s right – one strategic media interview can turn your book into a bestseller.

As a media insider and bestselling author, I am uniquely qualified to teach you how to become the “go-to” expert in Media – and you don’t have to hire a publicist. Ever.

So let’s get your wisdom into the world.

There's a myth among nonfiction authors that the only path to publicity is with a publicist. Back in the day, that was true. But things have changed. Just like the publishing industry has been disrupted by different paths to publication, authors have more options now....

This Stopped the Scroll

The other day this question popped into my head and when I shared it on social media several folks said it stopped their scroll.

“What if you focused on actions rather than outcome?”

Makes you think, right? I mean so much of the way we are conditioned to be productive and look at progress is focused on outcomes.

Now of course we want positive outcomes to arise from our actions. But it’s focusing on actions that creates that possibility.
