S3 Episode 7- ATWT Interviews Urban Fantasy Author Rosie Wylor-Owen

From her website:

"Rosie Wylor-Owen is a USA Today Bestselling author of urban fantasy and paranormal romance books."

Her most recent release, Valkyrie Broken, completes her 7-book The Rogue Valkyrie Series. I was fortunate enough to sit down with Rosie (virtually, of course, as she currently lives near London) to discuss her newest release, what's it's like to be an indie author, and was even able to get some darn good writing advice from her. 

If you're interested in learning more about Rosie and her work, you can visit her website: https://rosiewylor-owen.com/.

If you'd like to connect with Rosie on social media, you can find her on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok.

S2: Episode 7: Publishing Update & Commas After Beats? No, stop it.

In this episode I challenge you to get a traditionally published book and look for commas after beats. I think if you do find any, their numbers will be few. In this section, I say not to get a self-published title. I mean no offense to self-pubbed authors (of which I am one). What I mean is, it will be much more difficult to find a well-edited self-pubbed work than it will be to find a well-edited trad published work. This is not a knock on those indie authors who go above and beyond to put out the best work possible. Merely an acknowledgment that great work can be difficult to find among work that still needs a few rounds with an editor.
