Author  Spotlight


Would you like to be a featured author on my blog? If so, please follow the directions below and submit your interview to author spotlight submissions in a Microsoft word document. I will contact you when I receive your interview, and I will also let you know when your interview has been posted. Aside from promoting my own work, I also like to promote other indie author’s like myself as well. Whatever I can do to help someone else get exposure, I will do. Thank you for your participation, and happy writing!!!


Author Q and A:

Please choose twenty-five questions and answer them in complete sentences. This will constitute an author question and answer session with you. Be sure to choose a combination of writing/author related questions and personal questions to give readers an insight into who you are other than just an author. Also, please provide two titles of your books along with links to where they can be purchased. If you are a blogger, or you have your own website, please include those links as well. Don’t forget to include any social media links you would like readers to follow/befriend you on.


Note: Please only provide books that you are the sole author of. No compilations or anthologies that your work appears in. Be mindful to include the question along with your answer so that I will know which one it belongs to.
