Author Spotlight: Interview with author M. York

TJ: Hello! Welcome to Author Spotlight where both new and veteran authors share a little about themselves and their work. Today we have M. York. Let’s get into it. Care to tell readers us about yourself?

Marketing Monday: Branding

When I first heard of author branding, I rolled my eyes. I was at a three-day writers’ workshop, learning about the essentials of story craft through panels, participating in critique groups, and attending panels about different aspects of the business of publishing.

Genre: Fantasy Romantic Subplot? Eh. There’s a love triangle of sorts but the author didn’t spend a lot of time developing the romance. I really didn’t get why the Darkling had a thing for Alina, it was grossly hyped and seriously underdeveloped. Steam? Tepid. Plot: Evil dude wants to control the world, supposedly. Alina has[…]
