Attn: Nonfiction Authors! Are You Ready To Learn the Secret to Using Publicity to Sell More Books? (even if you’ve tried before or you have an “old” book)
Profitable Publicity is a jam-packed training showing you the exact steps you need to craft a media interview that solidifies your authority, increases your credibility, creates raving fans, and most importantly – moves the needle on book sales.
Are you a best kept secret who should be a bestselling author?
I mean, seriously! You did the hard work of writing a nonfiction book that can make a real difference in people’s lives. It’s coming out soon and you really want to launch it successfully. Or, your book has been out for a while but it’s just not selling like you hoped it would.
The thing is – you thought writing the book and getting it out into the world was the hard part. But marketing, it’s leaving you weary. And how do those other authors do those high profile media interviews that turn their books into bestsellers? And even if you got publicity, would you know what to say?
I hear you and I believe it’s time for you to stop being a best kept secret. Because your work matters. Your message matters. Your book matters.
It’s time for you to become…
A bestselling author
The most credible, go-to expert in your field in the Media
An influencer whose message is being heard potentially by millions
An impact maker changing the lives of the people you serve
A highly respected expert, sought after by publishers for future books
THE author that readers turn to for trusted advice and wisdom
I can help. Because after seeing more than 10,000 media interviews in my television career, I’ve learned this:
A media interview is a marketing asset that somebody else pays to create. But only if you’re prepared.
And that’s where I come in. I’m a former Oprah Show Post Producer and Bestselling Author turned Media Coach for Authors.
In fact, I became a Bestselling Author 12 hours after one media interview came out. No exaggeration! Media has the power to:
- Increase your book sales
- Turn you into a Bestselling Author
- Propel you to launch or grow a speaking career
- Bring you attention from Publishers and Agents
- Boost your status so clients pay more to work with you
- Get your message in front of millions of potential readers
- Make you money – if that is, you use publicity strategically

In more than 30 years working behind the scenes starting in local news and working my way up to national shows like NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, and The Oprah Winfrey Show, I’ve picked up quite a bit of knowledge. Frankly, I speak Media. On top of that, I’ve been interviewed as a parenting author many times in national Media – TV, radio, newspapers, and magazines.
I have so much knowledge to share to help you become to go-to expert who sells books, grows your audience, and makes a massive impact in the world!
Introducing Profitable Publicity!
In this concise 6 module class, you’ll learn…
- Why authors never need to pay for publicity
- The 5 keys to turning media interviews into marketing assets
- What nonfiction authors should do before every media interview
- What so many authors get wrong about publicity – that you won’t
- The choice you must make before you even get publicity
- How to steer a media interview in the right direction from the start
- What to do when an media appearance starts to go off track
- The story you must tell to get the audience to buy your book
So, what would it be like if you did a media interview that actually was a game changer for you?
What kind of impact could that have on your life as an author with a powerful message to share?
Well, imagine these scenarios…
You do a media interview and your book catapults to #1 in a major Amazon category and breaks into the top 100 books selling on Amazon – beating out millions of books!
You do a national television interview and after only 4 minutes on TV you DOUBLE your speaking fees! Literally that day! And you get booked more than ever and asked to do keynotes!
Do these things seem impossible? They’re not. The first scenario happened to me and the second one happened to a friend of mine. Why? Because media is an effective and powerful marketing tool. And it’s free.
Who is Profitable Publicity for?
You, if you’re a soon-to-be or already published nonfiction author who wants o use TV, radio, podcasts, online, newspaper and magazines to sell more books and grow your audience.
This training shows you the exact steps you need to craft a media interview that solidifies your authority, increases your credibility, creates raving fans, and most importantly – moves the needle on book sales.
The best part is that this method is so easy, you can be prepared to create profitable media appearances just 1 hour after taking the training.
How exactly can publicity increase profitability?
After a successful AOL interview, my book catapulted to #1 in the Parenting category and broke into the top 100 books among millions of titles across all of Amazon.
And a friend of mine spent 4 minutes being interviewed on The Today Show and immediately after that aired, she was able to successfully double her speaking fees. That’s the “profitability” part of publicity. Because when you do Media correctly, you’ll be able to raise your speaking prices, charge more for clients, and sell more books.
This course is brand new so I don’t have any reviews yet. But you deserve reviews of my work, so here are what authors have said about other courses I’ve offered:
I learned how to provide sound bites and be prepared with all the materials (photos, bio, graphics) that the media might need. Thanks to Mary, I was featured in the Chicago Tribune and soon will do my first live television appearance. I highly recommend Mary’s coaching program to any author looking to hone their message and develop their interview skills. As authors, many of us naturally love to write but find it challenging to share the same information in spoken form. Mary will teach you how to take what you’ve written and translate it into a media interview that will get your work the attention it deserves. Media Savvy Author = Five stars! ~ Laura Tiebert, lauratiebert.com, Author, The Rise of Prince
“Mary is brilliant! When I first heard of her and her course, I had no idea that media was even an option for someone like me to get the word out about my book. I thought you had to be a big name personality. After completing the course, I now have great confidence and understanding of how to navigate media, plus concrete ways to present myself and my book. But the real value of the course is Mary! She is an amazing encourager and an endless source of ideas for any genre. I highly recommend Mary and her course to every non-fiction author!” ~George Black, Author, The Next Level Entrepreneur
“Mary is the real deal when it comes to Media. Her in depth knowledge of the industry helped me to gain the clarity that I needed to understand my audience and message. After a few short weeks of being in Media Success Blueprint I was featured Reader’s Digest’s online site with a readership of over 11 million people. I attribute this to Mary and her course. She taught me how to become media savvy. Not only do I recommend her but I will continue to use her myself to prep me for upcoming media interviews!” ~Ty Ziglar, Author, Unpack You Luggage and Live
