Maria Murnane's debut novel, PERFECT ON PAPER, THE (MIS)ADVENTURES OF WAVERLY BRYSON, breaks through traditional barriers to gain a growing audience. Maria, an independent marketing writer living in New York City, was turned down by every major publisher before self publishing her work, then being picked up by AmazonEncore, the new publishing imprint of Amazon designed to showcase exceptional books overlooked by readers or traditional publishers.

PERFECT ON PAPER is a heartbreaking and humorous tale of a young woman who appears to have it all, until she is jilted by her high profile fiance Aaron, just weeks before their wedding day. The event turns Waverly's life upside down. She quits her job to pursue her dream of founding a greeting card line for women and falls head over heels into the future.

Here Marie talks about her grueling publishing journey which found her crying for days through repeated rejections, until she decided to publish herself, with a little marketing help from her Dad.
