Author-Publishing Tactics: Payhip, Amazon, the Future, and You

Oh hey. I didn’t see you there. I was just publishing my own fiction myself and marketing and selling it directly to readers via digital means. Hi. My name is Matt Wallace. I’m a professional writer.

There Is No Badge of Approval: Representation in Fiction

I had occasion this Sunday past to be interviewed by Hugh J. O’Donnell and Pat Toner from The Way of the Buffalo, the fiction podcast.
