>> M.F. Lorson is a YA librarian, new mom, and author of two YA books. She wrote them before she had her first child earlier this year, and Daphne talks with her about how she’s adapting to a writer mom life. After getting into the scheduling details that take over the lives of new moms, M.F. gives all sorts of great advice on getting your book into libraries. In her role, she gets the added thrill of knowing how many people have checked out her book – and they don’t even know the author is the one behind the desk!

M.F. and Daphne try to avoid talking only about her adorable baby and get into other topics like:

  • What she was able to do during her maternity leave
  • When she finds time to write
  • Why she prefers getting out of the house to write
  • Where you need to get your book so that librarians see it
  • The three big reviews you might want to consider paying for
  • Why writing and finding motivation to write is easier now
  • Where she goes for advice on writing (hint: in-person AND online groups are both important)


>> In the tips section, J. R. talks about all the different types of events you can attend as an author to reach more readers – it’s not all about online marketing, people!
