    Great interview. I think "marketing and promotion" is one of the most often-cited complaints from writers once we're published. We got into this to write…so marketing doesn't necessarily come naturally to all of us. Plus, it's tough to toot your own horn. You feel like you're bragging!

      Agreed. It's hard to meld a writer mind with a marketing mind.

    So true, Stephanie! Right now my primary marketing strategy is "write more books." This series is itching to get out into the world! And I'm so grateful to people like Emilyann who offer a space to put the spotlight on indie authors!

      I've read a lot of places that continuing to push out books is a great strategy. So glad you have time to answer some questions and share with us 🙂

    So proud of you!!! I need to order your new book and I want a signed copy 🙂 I recently watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower, recorded it, and watched it again. Thanks for the reminder to watch About Time… I recall seeing the promo and thinking I would love that one. I wish you much success with the new book!

      I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's such an emotional story. Thank you for stopping by Stacia 🙂

      Thank you, Stacia! Oddly, I own the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower but not the book. I did read the book first though and fell in love with it!

      Thanks Pat! Did you ever read Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood? In that book one character attempts to make his own breed of empathetic humans. They end up quite strange. I need to read MaddAddam (the last book in the trilogy) to find out what becomes of them.

    Wonderful interview. And I like the idea of featuring fellow creatives.

    Hi Leslee and Emilyann, my biggest challenge too would be marketing and self-promotion. I am bad at both. Harry Potter would be my choice too. Good luck with your books Leslee.

    Emilyann, for some strange reason, Google Friend Connect is not letting me follow you. I have been trying from three days.
