The publicity gurus at Author Marketing Experts advise writers to become a filter of information, another important aspect of building "author brand". Blogs are a great way to disseminate market information, expert advice on an aspect of the craft, editor news--in short, anything writers want their audience to remember them for and keep coming back for more.
Because the time travel market is deemed "soft" right now, I can think of no better way to celebrate novels and other mediums of entertainment answering to the small niche of people like me. Those who find the infinitesimal possibilities of story when coupled with any aspect of time, one of the most fascinating backdrops for human drama.
Each Monday, you'll find market news, tidbits, excerpts, links--anything and everything related to this wicked stepchild of the sci-fi world, now awaiting a projected resurgence in popularity. ===============================================
