I was made aware by another writer/blogger the other day that an author’s name is itself their brand, and thus must be properly advertised. I’ve yet to even truly unveil mine. Thus, tonight, as I finish compiling my novel, I find that it is time to take a deep (very deep) breath and say to you at last:
My name is V Rose Dahrke.
If that sounds theatrical, melodramatic, or otherwise eye-roll-inducing, I will also add “Hi, you must be new.”
