This is a very special episode of the podcast! My fellow editor and author friend, Shayla Raquel, joined me for a conversation about author branding. She is the author of The Ten Commandments of Author Branding and the novel, The Suicide Tree. Links to Shayla's books and website--and her great resources!--is provided below.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Does your book stink like rotten eggs?
  • What author branding really means.
  • Why authors are afraid to be themselves on social media.
  • Why Shayla no longer recommends book launch teams, and what to do instead.
