Let me interview you!

The Basics

  • I post interviews on my blog about once a month. The dates are first come, first serve and I will assign a deadline and publication date for you. However, if you have a new book coming out and you’d like the interview to be around the release date, let me know and I’ll try to figure something out.
  • You do not have to be published in order to be interviewed on my blog. As long as you’re a writer, you’re good to go.
  • The interviews are meant to give my readers some insight into the writing world as well as quality advice and information from experience. The authors and writers will gain more exposure for their own work.
  • I do not chase you. If I send you the interview questions plus a follow-up email and I don’t hear back from you, I’ll assume you’ve changed your mind and your spot will be given to someone else.

By The Deadline

By the deadline, I’ll need a few things along with your answers and any answers to potential follow-up questions I may have.

  • Your answers to the interview questions (be as brief or long as you want – just don’t make each answer a novel)
  • A brief bio of yourself (no more than 200 words)
  • Social media and website links (no more than five)
  • Your author photo (JPEG format)
  • If applicable – All buy links to ONE (1) of your books
  • If applicable – A book cover to ONE (1) of your books (JPEG format)
  • If applicable and Optional – A brief blurb and/or excerpt of ONE (1) of your books (no more than 300 words)

After The Interview Goes Live

What I’ll Do

  • I will send you an email with a permalink once the interview is scheduled. When it goes live on your scheduled date at midnight EST, I’ll send another email that morning with the live link and a reminder.
  • In addition to my blog, the interviews will also be posted on my TwitterPinterest, and Instagram.

What You’ll Do

  • Share the interview around your social media and website. This will be a great way to share the interview with your own audience and gain more exposure for the interview.
  • Check back periodically to read and answer any and all comments you may get. Chances are, the comments will be directed toward you.

  • Tell me a little bit about yourself
