MG Wilson is the pen name for Melissa G Wilson, author of 17 books with a number of bestsellers. Her latest book, Networking is Dead: Creating Connections that Matter, was a Wallstreet Journal and Barnes and Noble bestseller and her book, Networlding, was a #10 book on Amazon for an entire year. It was a parable that tells the story of two people figuring out how to network better in our uber-social world.
Melissa started Networlding Publishing (www.networlding.com), a ghostwriting service and book marketing organization for thought leaders because her top value is “making a difference.” She found that she could make the biggest difference by following her “Power-of-Ten” Networlding process, helping ten authors a year.
To this end, Melissa assists thought leaders in ghostwriting, publishing and marketing their books. Her clients have included people like the head of diversity for Hewitt, the president of Holland Cruise Lines, the head of a division of Allstate, the head of HR for the NBA, a seven-time Inc. 500 entrepreneur and thought leaders from many small and mid-sized companies around the world
Melissa’s greatest passion is helping new adults get better starts in their lives and careers. Here, she mentors up to ten college graduates yearly, providing them with paid mentorships in book publishing and marketing. Recently she started an initiative to spread mentoring as a practice to others around the world with her startup non-profit called The Spark Tank (www.thesparktank.org).
MG Wilson’s books currently include the growing History Mashup Series that help teens learn and explore history in a much more fun, creative and, hopefully, beneficial way. To this end MG Wilson has written:
- History Mashups: From Shakespeare to Stephen King
- History Mashups: From Marie Antoinette to Madonna
- History Mashups: From Sleep Beauty to Beyonce
- History Mashups: From Lou Gehrig to Derek Jeter
- History Mashups: From Princess Grace to Princess Kate
MG Wilson is also working on a series of history-mystery books called Miss Stories with the first book in the series called Miss Understood and the Case of the Missing Locket.
Melissa lives in Chicago, with her husband she named Mr. Wonderful before Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank fame made it a million-dollar brand.
Melissa and her husband, thriller-author, Craig S Wilson, have an amazing blended family and a special “Creative Room” where they write. This room has helped them stay true to being eternal creatives and for Melissa, it’s her spot for podcasts, book-author ghostwriting, coaching and mad, breakthrough marketing sessions where she helps deserving authors get noticed so they can pay their mortgages and live their lives as the pure creatives they wish to be.
