Being a new author, I had no idea which way to go once I had my thoughts down on paper.  Liz Lawless has directed me and held my hand all the way through the publishing and marketing process of my books, always making herself available for my questions and concerns.”

I can't recommend Russ highly enough. I knew nothing about starting a podcast and am not a technical person! I watched his free video series on his website about Live Streaming to start and then connected. Russ is extremely knowledgeable with a background in broadcasting and probably, more important, he is patient and kind guiding me through the process.
