Author spotlights

** SPOTLIGHTS CURRENTLY BOOKING INTO MID-APRIL 2013 – MORE WELCOME **

I started posting weekly author spotlights on the mixed blog in August 2011 and currently post them each weekday morning.

An author spotlight is made up of a <1,000-word third person biography, <1,000-word first-person about your writing / anything interesting writing-related, then links to you and your work (see the already-posted spotlights listed above as examples). You can also provide a photograph of yourself and your book cover(s) to add some colour to the post. Please email me as attachments rather than email-embedded text / photos wherever possible, thank you.

Because of the high volume of enquiries received across this blog, I don’t schedule in advance but when I receive the content, sorry about that.

Before submitting your own, please do look at one or more of the spotlights (the second links for the spotlights themselves (the first links are the authors’ websites) to see how they ‘work’.

I don’t do book reviews – see Reviewers for some other sites that do.

In January 2013, I created five new online writing groups to share your short stories, poetry and novel / script extracts for feedback. I also post weekday 15-minute writing exercises – see Online Writing Groups.

Because of the high volume of enquiries received across this blog, I don’t schedule in advance but when I receive the content, sorry about that.

Unfortunately due to time constraints, I can’t do book reviews but I do also welcome blog interviewees*, writing-related guest blogs (max 1000 words, please email me in advance to discuss the topic), flash fiction for Flash Fiction Fridays and poetry for Post-weekend Poetry. 🙂

PLEASE NOTE: *I now charge for the interviews on the mixed blog (£10 / €12.50 / $15) because they are so time-consuming (I don’t just read / post them, but add in comments before they go live as if we’re chatting).

don’t charge (or pay) for running the interviews on this blog or the mixed blog’s author spotlights / guest blogs / flash fiction / poetry etc. – these ‘services’ are offered because I love meeting and getting to know other authors and because it’s fun to put new things out (and a little part of me hopes that when visitors come to my site they’ll maybe buy one of my books). So I thank each and every one of the authors who have asked (or said “yes” when I’ve asked them) to be, or are considering being, part of my blog. I’ll keep doing what I’m doing for as long as you keep doing what you’re doing. 🙂
