How Can I Help You?


The #1 question everyone wants to know is: What works? What works in marketing? What works to sell more, earn more, and drive more results?
Of course, the answer is "it depends". I don't have all the answers, but I'm committed to bringing you the very best whilst keeping it real and honest as I go.
What works for one person might not work for another.

The key is discovering what works for you, and I'm here to help you do just that



Let's talk about your project !

What People Are Saying


“Jo is one of those rare writers who really "gets" not only the art of writing but the business and promotional sides as well. In addition to her books and e-books on Italy, she's done a great service for the writing community through her Promo Day efforts, and anyone taking her on in a writing or editorial capacity would certainly benefit from her practical knowledge and experience in that area.” - Jennifer Mattern, Owner, JH Mattern Communications


“Jo is an energetic, self-motivated and highly organized marketer. She knows how to pull a project together in a timely fashion, putting elements in place ahead of schedule so things come off without a hitch. I value her advice, her writing style and her ideas.” - Sandy Lender, Author, Editor and Writing Consultant


“I've worked with Jo as a presenter for her Promo Day online conference and partnered with her on a small writers' conference in Rome. This woman is dynamite! She's organized and marketing savvy. She's prompt and personable. How lucky we are that we need no longer be constrained by oceans." - Carolyn Howard-Johnson, Instructor UCLA Extension Writers' Program, UCLA

Book Review: On the Same Page by Penelope Janu


Book Review: On the Same Page by Penelope Janu


What I liked (and didn't) about On the Same Page by Penelope Janu

Disclosure: I got sent a free copy of this book by the publisher via Net Galley.



Winner of the 2017 XO Romance Prize 



Sometimes a girl just has to do what’s in her heart … 



By day Miles Franklin, named after the famous author, is a successful lawyer. But by night she writes historical romance novels under the pen name Emma Browning. When Miles’s assistant covertly enters her boss's novel in one of Australia’s biggest literary awards—and it wins—Miles’s perfectly ordered world is torn apart. 



Lars Kristensen smells a rat. As the CEO of Iconic International, the company publishing Miles’s prize-winning novel, he’s determined to meet the author and uncover her true identity. 



But Miles is equally determined to protect her privacy—and to keep writing—even if it means mastering pole dancing, and choreographing a love scene in the back of a horse-drawn carriage … Well, she is a romance writer, after all. 



Miles has the grit to keep her secret, but Lars has the smouldering looks and arrogance of any romantic hero she has ever imagined. 



Hmm. Sometimes a girl just has to turn the page …

On My Shelf: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee


On My Shelf: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee


On My Shelf


On My Shelf is a series to showcase some of the books that are sat on my shelves. Each Sunday I randomly pick a book from my shelves to show you. Some will be books that are on my TBR, others will be books I've read in the past but that deserve a little love.

This week's pick





The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior - to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

Booktastic Thursday: A Link Up For Book Bloggers (21st February 2019)


Booktastic Thursday: A Link Up For Book Bloggers


Welcome back for another Booktastic Thursday Link Up!

I'm looking forward to seeing what bookish posts you have to share this week. 

What I've been up to:

It's been an incredibly busy week here. Last Sunday my eldest had a swimming competition at Cassino where he did 50m breaststroke, and then yesterday he left to go to the Italian Life-Saving Championships (more swimming) at Riccione. Yesterday he did the 50m obstacles, and today he's part of the medley relay. So many emotions I'm about to explode! 

Anyway, as you can imagine, I've been a complete mess. Raising champions is hard work. I'm so proud of what he's achieved so far though and it's amazing to see him so happy and proud of himself. 

In other news, I've been getting things organised for this years Promo Day event. The event will take place on Saturday 11th May and I have a great line up of presenters. 

I have some awesome prizes for the giveaways too, but I'm still looking for more so if you have something you'd like to donate please get in touch. 

I've also been working on a custom cover design for a client which I hope to be able to share with you soon.

But that's enough about me. Now for the Booktastic Thursday Link Up!
