You’ve helped me build my professional toolbox! – Danielle DeFauw

I watched Mary Kole’s query webinar on Monday. Tuesday I wrote the most sweat-free query of my professional life. No joke! – Melissa

Mary is a masterful speaker, very engaging, and I loved the intimate, casual format. I’m sure I’ll revisit the webinar many times in the future! – Wendy Haugh

Very informative, well-organized and understandable. Definitely worth my time. – Dena Pawling

Mary’s webinar on Writing an Irresistible Query was not only extremely helpful but concise and to the point. She listed an example for each step of the query letter and explained it as well so that writing a query letter isn’t as taunting as it used to be. – R. Wong

This webinar was very helpful and answered many of my questions about writing a query letter as well as publishing in general. – Shawna

Mary always gives great advice and tips. This webinar was thorough and informative, plus she is a wonderful presenter. – Janet W.

An outstanding webinar. Mary Kole was energetic and concise. – A. Monroe

I’m so glad I took the time. The webinar was jammed-packed with tips and advice on what to do and what not to do. And, It covered everything from novels to picture books. I highly recommend Mary’s webinars. – Karen Cioffi
