"Project: Happily Ever After will get people talking about those aspects of marriage that most couples keep deep in the vault. With honesty and humor, Bowman writes about a journey of a marriage in recovery, and wraps it all up with the rarest of outcomes--a happy ending."
—John and Linda Friel, authors of The 7 Best Things (Happy) Couples Do

, Alisa is just the confidante and comedian you need in the toughest of times."
—Ian Kerner, bestselling author of She Comes First and He Comes Next
"Much more than a relationship book, Project: Happily Ever After
, is a true-life love story. Join other readers in the sometimes serious, sometimes silly ups-and- downs and rebuilding of a couple. The really good news here is that Alisa has given us a road map to do the same for our own relationships. It’s never too late to have a happy ending."

If you’d rather kick your hubby than kiss him, rather kill him than coo at him, read this book now!"
—Kiri Blakeley, writer for Forbes, contributor for Forbes Woman, and author, Can’t Think Straight: A Memoir of Mixed-Up Love

—Pat Love, ED.D, author of Hot Monogamy
"I adore this book, and heartily recommend it to anybody whose marriage has gone from a sweet fairy-tale to a disaster drama. Alisa Bowman has a delightfully funny and honest voice, and shows how she was able to turn her own marriage around with the help of a willing partner, a lot of self-help books, and raw determination."
—Charla Muller, author of 365 Nights

takes you from the depths of a marriage on the verge of collapse to a healthy and loving relationship. Alisa provides practical and powerful tips for taking control of your unhealthy relationship and making it happy again."
—Jonathan Alpert, psychotherapist and advice columnist
"When Alisa Bowman agreed to be our Featured Author for the 2010 Southern Oregon Book and Author Fair, we had no idea what a true gem we had found. She is an event director's dream come true. She has all the qualities of a headlining author -- incredible talent, successful industry experience, a healthy sense of humor, an easy confidence in her speaking delivery, great style and good looks. Fortunately, she also lacks a common quality often found in writers of her caliber -- that dreadful diva attitude. She created a personal connection with the audience, and they came away from her presentation with renewed drive and motivation. She was also very easy to work with, and her availability for pre-event promotions and radio interviews helped to make our event a success."
—Trisha Barnes, Director, Oregon Book and Author Fair
"Entertaining, informative, honest and forthright—those are the adjectives I would use to describe Alisa Bowman’s presentation. Our employees were laughing and nodding in agreement as she spoke. We’ve had nothing but positive feedback, and we can’t wait to have her come back and speak again!"
—Andrea Howard, wellness events director for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
"Alisa has great camera presence. She’s open, very honest and is not afraid to show her emotions. It’s obvious she’s passionate about what she does."
—Karlie Pouliot, Fox News Channel New York
"Every once in a while I’d like an interview to be easy. I’d like the guest to be prepared, knowledgeable, funny, smart and quick. I’d like my interview to go smoothly with a rapid fire give and take that’s fun for me and interesting for my listeners. I’d like the audience to hang on every word, sitting on the edge of their seats wondering what’s coming next. Alisa Bowman is that interview. She is terrific and she makes me look good. The audience loves her, they learn from her and they connect with her passion, honesty and humanity. She’s one in a million."
—Lee Rosen, StayHappilyMarried.com
"As a producer in the fast-paced world of Cable TV, I often find myself in the field with many challenges including inexperienced or nervous interview subjects. I was overjoyed to meet and work with Alisa Bowman who showed no fear of the camera. Alisa was incredibly articulate and comfortable in her role as storyteller. Her interview made our Discovery Special a success. She’s a natural!"
—Lauren Levine, Field Producer, Discovery Health Channel
"Alisa Bowman is a dynamic, engaging speaker who knows how to connect with, entertain, and educate her audience. She uses state-of-the-art technology and lots of humor.
