As a self-published author, Maria has a background in marketing, and this helps her to market her books. However, having this added experience has not made the exercise any easier. With persistence and being diligent with social media, keeping her website and blog updated and accepting interviews and author talks, her hard work is beginning to pay off. Sales have picked up since 2020, a year COVID devastated many businesses, and Maria is enthusiastic about writing and entertaining readers for years to come.
With short stories and novels available online as well as POD, Maria’s works have world-wide distribution and her debut novel, The Decision They Made, has been translated into Italian. This family saga spans three generations and is set is three countries. There are elements of child abuse in the story, so fifty per cent of the book sales of this book will be donated to The Alannah & Madeline Foundation, a charity that assists abused children.
Maria writes in three genres – Fiction Family Saga, Science Fiction and Contemporary Fiction. She launched her books at Berkelouw Books in Leichhardt on Sunday 27 September 2020 at 2 pm.
