How does Judith Marshall (author of Husbands May Come  and Go but Friends are Forever) Build Her Platform?

Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan here, so proud of Judith Marshall!  Judith was in our critique group (Lynn Scott, Marcia Naomi Berger, Judith Marshall and me-Teresa LeYung-Ryan).  Judie knew she had written a page-turning novel (and we Critique Gals knew it too).  So, after 2 years of “rejection letters” from literary agents (while receiving writing-contest awards!), Judie took control of her career by becoming a publisher herself.

Fast forward . . .   Husbands May Come and Go but Friends are Forever has been optioned for the big screen. G o, Judie !!!!!
