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


I’m very pleased to present a longform online class I recorded for Writing Blueprints called the Manuscript Submission Blueprint. It’s all about the agent and publisher submission process, and you can take it online at your own leisure.

Inside you’ll find over ten hours of video instruction, 30+ handouts to fill out that guide you through the agent and publisher research and submission steps, bonus interviews and videos, and an inside look from yours truly into one of the most important things you’ll do for your book!
