NPR Profile of MJ Rose

If anyone is curious, NPR did a story on MJ Rose, a suspense author who also went through the self-published route.

Unfortunately, she's a bit critical of self-publishing as an avenue to big success:

"You are going to have to break through," she says, "but if you want to make a career out of this then you have to make sure you are doing it in a very professional way."
Working with a publisher also has its challenges, though; she is published by Harlequin, so her books keep getting lumped in with the romances, despite the fact that she's a mystery / suspense writer. I wonder if she's surprised that branding still matters.
