What Authors Are Saying...

The MJ staff did a great job and I was glad to meet them and share insights. BUT the greatest thing was being in a room of superstars (the other authors). Made me wonder how I got to be part of that group... The connections we made were awesome! - Ken Pasch

Meeting the MJ staff face to face, and being able to share what I believe was my purpose or calling with people outside of Australia. It was a real " Mountain Top" experience for me.  - Des Bowman

I just returned from the MJRC and it was so good to meet the staff in person and connect to an informative networking beehive. The kindness shown to the Morgan James Authors was genuine Nashville and the authors present reflected so many important values as well. I learned a lot about distribution and public relations knowledge for my book and future books and began putting into practice some important points the very next day. Nashville was a hoot and I look forward to my second book trip in the future. Thank you David L. Hancock and friendly staff!      - Franceska Alexander
Thank you! The author training day gave me some great ideas on book publishing and how to promote The Courage to be Profitable ... helping more business owners get and stay profitable. Your speakers were knowledgeable and very helpful. I appreciate their sharing! Thanks again for a great day! - Ruth King
