Hello everyone, my name is Yani and I am an author from Philadelphia. I mostly write urban fiction, contemporary, mystery, thriller and suspense, (I wrote my first book of short horror stories a couple years ago) and young adult. I am also a reader. I've been heavily into Stephen King since I was 9 years old, Laurel K. Hamilton, Patricia D. Cornwell, Omar Tyree, Toni Morrison, Terri McMillan, E. Lynn Harris and quite a few others. I'll pretty much read anything as long as the plot and character development holds my attention.
I hope to bring insight to this forum based off of my experiences in the self-publishing industry. Hopefully I can answer questions and point people in the direction to find/accomplish the things they are looking to find/accomplish.
I hope to learn from others who may have insight on branding and marketing as that is one of the things I have struggled with since I released my first book. I hope to make connections with some great people.
