M.D. Grimm


M.D. Grimm has wanted to write stories since second grade (kind of young to make life decisions, but whatever) and nothing has changed since then (well, plenty of things actually, but not that!). Thankfully, she has indulgent parents who let her dream, but also made sure she understood she’d need a steady job to pay the bills (they never let her forget it!). After graduating from the University of Oregon and majoring in English, (let’s be honest: useless degree, what else was she going to do with it?) she started on her writing career and couldn’t be happier. Working by day and writing by night (or any spare time she can carve out), she enjoys embarking on romantic quests and daring adventures (living vicariously, you could say) and creating characters that always triumph against the villain, (or else what’s the point?) finding their soul mate in the process.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I mostly read romance of all heat levels and diverse couplings. Sometimes erotica if I'm in the mood. I also enjoy reading the "classics," such as the works by Jane Austin, the Bronte sisters, and truly ancient works like "Beowulf" and "Le Morte D'Arthur." However, I have recently found interest in the earlier works of Neil Gaiman, and I did enjoy the Witcher series. I try to step out of my comfort zone to have a more well-rounded reading catalogue.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Using Otherworldsink.com, run by the phenomenal J. Scott Coatsworth, has worked wonders to promote my work. They have connections to a bunch of review and book promo sites and depending on the package you purchase, you can have a three day release blast or 14-day blast. The author is required to write blog posts, usually about the work being promoted, and sometimes not. This allows me to talk about my work and the behind-the-scenes development. The company is geared toward LGBTQIA + content, which is right up my alley!
