Let me introduce myself…

I’m Mary O’Donohue, a Media Coach for Authors, a #1 Bestselling Author, and Oprah Show Veteran.  Combining decades of work in television with experience as an on-camera parenting expert, I know Media from all angles. And I use my insider access to teach a small group of women nonfiction authors how to get national publicity and turn media interviews into marketing assets.

Published to Prime Time™ is a game changer for your book, your mission, and your life.

See what authors are saying about Mary’s programs. (Note: Media Success Blueprint™ is included in Published to Prime Time™.)

Mary is the real deal when it comes to Media. Her in depth knowledge of the industry helped me to gain the clarity I needed to understand my audience and message.  Within a few short weeks of being in Media Success Blueprint I was featured on Reader’s Digest online site with a readership of more than 11 million people!

Mary’s program gave me everything I needed to set myself up for success. She helped me develop a stronger origin story, media bio, pitch, and taught me the skills needed to feel confident when it comes to speaking with the media as an author and expert in my field. The best part of this program is Mary’s hands on approach and GENUINE care for your success as a person and an author.

My time in Mary’s program was incredibly beneficial. During the course I was interviewed for, an online magazine reaching roughly 50 million monthly readers. Shortly after completing the program, using what I learned from Mary, I was featured in two separate feature-length articles on Thrive Global, which has an audience of more than 10 million monthly readers. Mary’s experience in the media industry, her seasoned wisdom, and her encouraging, supportive spirit made for an absolutely incredible experience. I highly recommend Mary as a media mentor. She gets results!

From Mary I gained the confidence and knowledge I need to approach, and appeal to major media outlets when my book comes out.

My FIRST book podcast dropped today. Thank you, Mary! I never could have gotten this far without your help.

Mary O’Donohue really knows her stuff. Working with her is a rare opportunity to get an “insider’s view” of the national media landscape from an industry veteran, and to get tons of individual, personalized attention even in the context of a group coaching program.

Mary curates a top-notch group of authors, too, so the opportunity to share and learn from each other is another great element of the program. I recommend authors who are interested in breaking into national media join Mary’s coaching program, Published to Prime Time.

Thanks to Mary, I was featured in The Chicago Tribune and have already done 2 live television interviews. I highly recommend Mary’s class to any author — or aspiring 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.

If you’re looking to transform your ability to reach and prepare for media opportunities with your book, Mary’s program and experience are worth every penny. Published to Prime Time is absolutely a program where you get out what you put into it and if you do the work, you’ll learn so much.

I was able to clearly define my mission, craft and send pitches, land media opportunities, and develop a support system that encouraged me to keep going. I’ve learned and gained so much. If given the opportunity, I would absolutely choose this program every time! Thank you, Mary!

I’m not just a Media Coach – I’m a bestselling nonfiction author too. The media exposure my book received established me as a trusted expert, greatly expanded my audience, and turned my book into a #1 bestseller in Parenting, and #97 overall out of millions of titles on Amazon! Below are just a few images from my media appearances.
