Jack Herlocker I thought I felt my ears burning (is there an emoticon for that?).

Thanks for your reply, Rachel. I’m honored — I really enjoy your work. The description I sent Jack was really what I consider a reader profile — I wrote a pretty narrow profile to help me focus, but I know I have other readers who fall outside those parameters. Maybe in my rebranding process, I’ll have to revisit that. Do you have a defined audience?

I’ve only published two pieces on Medium. It seems to be a black hole for me, but maybe it will be less so if I post more? But so far, I don’t cross-post, so if I have something appearing elsewhere on a curated site, I won’t post to Medium. Do you think that’s a mistake?

Thanks so much for taking the time, Rachel!!
