Spotlight Author Interview - Dianne Harman

How do find your reading audience?

Starting Point
You must know your audience before you to start looking for your readers.

Finding a reading audience is one of the most difficult things an author has to deal with, particularly if you write contemporary fiction which crosses several genres…I'm a believer that no one is going to look for your works if they're under a rock, so I think multi-exposure is critical. If you write in a very specific genre, I think it's much easier to target your audiences.

  1. Dianne, that is so true. I'm a "cross-genre author," and I have yet to find my audience. Sometimes, "different" is not better. Still, as writers, we have to remain true to ourselves or our work with lack authenticity.
