Tor – Rachel Taylor & Amanda Melfi

By Rebecca Markwick, on 27 April 2021

This week I chat with Rachel Taylor and Amanda Melfi, social media and marketing geniuses at Tor. We chat about the importance of author wellbeing, the role of Tor’s social media channels, and how Rachel sent John Scalzi a secret burrito one time.

Show Notes
I chat to the fabulous people behind the Tor family of twitter accounts Rachel Taylor and Amanda Melfi all about how they try to be fun and engaging on social media on behalf of the Tor family without putting pressure on their authors. We chat about favourite books, hilarious twitter moments, sending John Scalzi secret burritos, and why it’s important to them to make the Tor spaces a safe space for authors and readers alike.
