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

July Challenges


Our focus for July is on quality content. 

The good news is that we've already been working on this a bit over the past few months. Between updating our design, SEO, and links, we've already improved the quality of our blog posts. Now it's time to get down to the meat of the content though. 

The July challenges:


1. Determine whether your older posts meet your current standards. 

Is the information included in your blog posts up to date? Have your older blog posts become outdated or irrelevant? 

Delete or update any blog posts that no longer fit with your current standards. You may also want to rewrite parts of certain blog posts to make sure they match your current voice and style. 

2. Check for errors

Check all blog posts for grammatical errors and spelling mistakes.


Free downloads: You can grab copies of all the extra materials for the Blog Audit Challenge 2020 for free here


Save the Date!

The August challenges will be posted on 1st August. The monthly link up post for sharing your July progress will be on 8th August.

Book Review: Even Good Girls by Nicholas Jordan


#BookReview: Even Good Girls by Nicholas Jordan

My thoughts about Even Good Girls by Nicholas Jordan



#BookReview: Even Good Girls by Nicholas Jordan
Tabitha and her best friend Nancy have been inseparable for years, but when Nancy suddenly begins avoiding Tabitha shortly after the beginning of their senior year, Tabitha grows concerned. But before she has a chance to find out why Nancy has driven a wedge between them, she learns that Nancy has been murdered, and what’s even worse, the police seem to be looking at her as their prime suspect. Now not only does she feel like she owes it to Nancy to discover the identity of her killer, she also has to do it if she wants to keep herself from being arrested for a crime she didn’t commit.

But as Tabitha dives deep into Nancy’s life, she discoveries secrets about her best friend that she never knew anything about. Secrets that will make her investigation more complicated and much more dangerous. Can she find out who killed her best friend? Or will her snooping around lead the killer to selecting her as their next victim?

If you are a fan of fast-paced and suspenseful mysteries that keep you guessing then Even Good Girls just might be a book you want to add to your collection of mysteries!

Book Review: Down in the Belly of the Whale by Kelley Kay Bowles


#BookReview: Down in the Belly of the Whale by Kelley Kay Bowles

My thoughts about Down in the Belly of the Whale by Kelley Kay Bowles


Trigger warning: Sexual assault/rape, suicide, self-harm.


#BookReview: Down in the Belly of the Whale by Kelley Kay Bowles
A contemporary story about family and friendship for fans of Eleanor Porter and L.M. Montgomery.

Harper Southwood is a teenage girl who can sense when people will get sick—but so what? She can’t predict her best friend’s depression or her mother’s impending health crisis. Being helpful is all Harper ever wanted, but she feels helpless in the face of real adversity. Now, she’s got a chance to summon her courage and use her wits to fight for justice. Laugh and cry along with this irrepressible, high-spirited teen in her journey of self-discovery, as she learns that compassion and internal strength are her real gifts, her true superpower.
