Hi, everyone! 😀
My name is Stephanie Flint, and I write YA secondary world fantasy and YA SciFi/Dystopia (with superpowers). It often veers into science fantasy. My husband and I have worked together for the plotting of quite a few of our books– in the case of the dystopian story, it started as a homebrew tabletop role-play game we played together that I eventually decided I wanted to write as a novel.
I love world-building and mixing genres, the latter of which has made it a pain to figure out marketing. I’m hoping to really hone down on a reader magnet that can funnel people into my series. The previous times I’ve tried making a reader magnet, they’ve turned into their own series. 😅
I’ve got two magnet ideas right now that I think I want to explore, based on what we saw in the webinars. One is YA fantasy (focusing on what the antagonist was doing prior to the first book); the other YA dystopia (from the POV of a very important side character, where she first gets an idea of her powers).
I’m not sure if I’m going to try writing both cookies or just the YA dystopian one, but either way, I look forward to the course and meeting everyone. 😀
