"I credit the success of my books and writing/speaking career to Jo-Lynne Worley and Joanie Shoemaker. They are two of the smartest, most results-oriented, experts in the world of publishing and promoting today. They are dedicated to every person they take on, leaving no stone unturned and no phone call unanswered—which is to say, you’ll never feel 'left hanging' or unattended to. In addition to the unwavering competence and commitment they bring to every project, they are terrific people to work with. “

”Jo-Lynne Worley and Joanie Shoemaker have mentored and guided me through every aspect of the publishing and entertainment jungle—from books to film to stage, their wisdom and savvy are incomparable. Their insight, chops, and advocacy are my 'secret weapons;' together, we're a team that doesn't blink at Goliath.“

Susie Bright, best selling author and editor of over 30 books and creative provocateur of the weekly show on Audible.com– In Bed With Susie Bright.

”As a new writer trying to find my way in the rapidly changing and increasingly complex publishing industry, I needed more than a literary agent; I needed mentors and strategists. That's exactly what I found with Worley-Shoemaker. Jo-Lynne and Joanie know where the book industry has been and they're right on top of where it's going. From social media, book trailers, and webinars, to negotiating solid contracts and developing branding strategies—they know the book business. I'm grateful to have them in my corner“

“I didn’t know how to talk to my publisher, potential event producers or the media until Jo-Lynne Worley came into my life. She played hardball with the publisher when they didn’t do what they had agreed to. Jo-Lynne got my books back in the stores and coached me on so many details. Mating in Captivity wouldn’t have become a success without her.”

Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity
