Author Interview & Spotlight Policies

I’m adding an Author Interview and Author Spotlight section to my blog so I can provide opportunities for authors to share a bit of themselves with potential readers and promote their work! Please check out the below policies before filling out applicable forms:

Author Interview Policy

If you are a published author (either traditionally or self-published) and interested in being interviewed, please feel free to send a request by completing the author interview request form. and I will endeavor to respond to your request within 3-4 days. If for some reason I’m unable to respond within that time frame please assume that while I’m most thankful for your request I won’t be able to interview you at this time.  However, please feel free to submit a request for future books/interviews.

If you’d like to request a review of an upcoming book as part of the interview please refer to the review policy and submit a request.  Note, however, that a book review is not required as part of an interview.

Author Interviews are done via email. Questions will be forwarded to you once I have gathered information and tailored them to you and your book(s). If you have a preferred date you would like the Author Interview to be posted please let me know when you provide your answers.  I cannot guarantee that I’ll be able to accommodate your request but I will do my best. Interviews will be posted under ‘Author Interviews’ and will remain there indefinitely.

I plan to turnaround interview requests within a month, however it is dependent on my schedule, previous commitments and if a book will be reviewed as part of the interview. I will provide a time frame upon acceptance and will notify the author if delays are anticipated.

Answers should be returned with a jpeg image of the book cover, if applicable, and author. The interview may or may not include a brief review or the review may be posted separately. For details regarding my reviews please read my review policy.

  • I cannot interview everyone so please don’t take it personally
  • I do not charge for interviews
  • Interviewing authors does not influence reviews I may complete for any of their works. Please see my Review Policy
  • I retain the right to not post an interview at my discretion

 

Author Spotlight Policy

If you are a published author (either traditionally or self-published) and interested in having an author spotlight posted please feel free to send a request by completing the author spotlight request form. and I will endeavor to respond to your request within a week. If for some reason I’m unable to respond within that time frame please assume that while I’m most thankful for your request I won’t be able to post an author spotlight for you at this time.  Please take  note of the following.

I’ve included a bit more detail regarding the author spotlight request form:

Bio:  This section is intended to be the objective bio written from third person POV.  This is typically the bio you already use inside book covers, websites, by publisher etc… There is a 1000 word limit.

About the Author: This section is written from first person POV and is where you can share a bit more about who you are, your body of work and anything else about your writing interests.  There is a 1000 word limit.

Your Body of Work:  I will list each of your distinct works as per your request. I will include the links that you provide for each work. I would highly recommend including book covers for each of your works as it’s more appealing to the general audience.

This is your chance to really shine a spotlight on yourself and share some awesome insight into you, the author, so take advantage and have some fun!  Us readers will love you all the more for it!

Please note:

  • I cannot post spotlights for everyone no matter how much I love all of you authors out there 🙂
  • I do not charge for spotlights
  • Posting spotlights does not influence any reviews I may complete for any of the authors works.  Please see my Review Policy
  • I retain the right to not post an author spotlight at my sole discretion for any reason
  • I will not modify anything you write.  What you write is what will be posted so take care to confirm accuracy before submitting
