INDIE AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT:
“Being an Indie Author means I get to write what I want to write, how I want to write it…”
M. Dalto is a fiction author of adventurous romantic fantasy and her debut novel, Two Thousand Years, won one of Wattpad’s Watty Awards in 2016. She continues to volunteer her time as an Ambassador, where she hopes to engage and inspire new writers. She spends her days as a full-time residential real estate paralegal, using her evenings to pursue her literary agenda. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading fantasy novels, playing video games, and drinking coffee. She currently lives in Massachusetts with her husband, their daughter, and their corgi named Loki.
What Does it Mean to You to be an Indie Author?
Being an Indie Author means I get to write what I want to write, how I want to write it, and I don’t need to worry so much about it being marketable or one someone else’s wishlist. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to write something else that other people want to enjoy- being a New Adult author I get to help flesh out an age group that major traditional publishing companies don’t truly acknowledge. And it also means I can continue to write my books and series without needing to wait on a publishing deal to dictate my forward progress.
What Do you Want Readers to Know?
My debut novel, TWO THOUSAND YEARS, will be releasing December 11, 2018, with the rest of The Empire Saga series continuing in 2019.
