Welcome to August! I know I am only about a week behind. I hope you are all enjoying the How to Write series of posts and the first four chapters of the blog book. I haven’t written a thing on it since the end of July because I am fast at work trying to get out the caper mystery. I have heard from so many sources that you should “brand” yourself as an author by being known for a specific genre of book. I have sort of been all over the map: YA fantasy, romance, slipstream, short story, novella, novel.
