Maria Murnane is an an award-winning novelist, an entertaining speaker, and an expert on self-publishing and creative book marketing. Her first novel, the romantic comedy Perfect on Paper, was initially turned down by several major publishing houses, so Maria self-published and implemented a grass-roots marketing campaign in an effort to prove the publishing houses wrong. And it worked! The award-winning novel attracted the attention of senior executives at Amazon, who chose it out of more than 10,000 self-published titles for the company’s new venture into traditional publishing. They offered Maria a contract, and in 2010 an updated version of Perfect on Paper was released by the AmazonEncore imprint in the United States. Since then it has also been published by Random House in Germany and Alexandra Publishing in Hungary. Maria’s next book, a sequel, is scheduled for release at the end of 2011. Given her success with self-publishing and grassroots book marketing, Maria recently created two on-demand webinars to share what she's learned about each.
