Fallbrandt was started by international best selling author, Jeffrey L. Kohanek, and author PR agent, Michael Evan. Marketing is key when it comes to doing well as an author, but many publishing companies won't promote the authors they publish. Seeing the need in the community, Jeff and Michael sought to remedy this by creating Fallbrandt.
Meet the people behind Fallbrandt.
Michael Evan double majored in Psychology/English Literature at York University in Toronto. He ran a live event marketing and promotions company for 15 years. In 2018, he started the Fantasy/Sci-Fi Focus blog, and Facebook Community as well as the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast alongside bestselling author Jamie Davis
Having noticed how little emphasis is placed on publicity and community engagement by publishers of all sizes, he wanted to bring that element to the table to offer authors a multi-media spotlight and genuine interactive events.
Michael specializes in providing authors with multi-media press opportunities, as well as growing and nurturing reader communities through review seeking, reader group growth and engagement, and direct audience interaction opportunities.
On a more fun fact, he has read Joyce’s Ulysses twice and champions Finnegan’s Wake as a worthy successor (but still has no idea what James was on about).
Jeffrey L. Kohanek is an international best selling author, best known for his Runes of Issalia, Wardens of Issalia, and Fate of Wizardoms epic fantasy series.
Jeff grew up in rural Minnesota where comic books sparked his young imagination, inspiring fantasies of heroes with super-powers saving the day. His tastes later evolved to fantasy epics featuring unlikely heroes overcoming impossible odds to save worlds born from the writer’s imagination.
Now residing in southern California, Jeff uses that imagination to weave tales of engaging characters caught in fantastic plots to inspire young adults and the child within us all.
