Marie and Ben discuss reviews left for last week’s Regency Romance featured beginning Brynnde by M. Pepper Langlinais as well as the author advice topic: Subgenres, You can never write too Many… Or Can You? The hosts discuss their views on the topic, theorize about J.K. Rowling switching genres and speak to the author of Brynnde about her own adventures in genre hopping. M. Pepper Langlinais gives her advice for other self-published and independently published authors concerning this topic and more. We all have stories to tell; stories to write, so write them. Write for yourself, your audience is out there and they will follow.
