Lots of great stuff here, which I enjoyed. But this from the author branding article amused me:

'First, establishing your author brand is essential to creating a consistent perception in readers’ minds. Think Karen Kingsbury. What comes to mind? Think Debbie Macomber or John Maxwell or Rick Warren. What unique characteristics come to mind when you see these well-known names? '

Actually, not a damn thing, Never heard of any of them. Which rather sabotages the point being made.
