I’m here for you! The new year is almost upon us, and I am working on my calendar for 2018. My main objective is to help independent authors spread the word about their books. The best way to do this is to feature your writing talent on blogs that cater to readers, like mine.
I want you to show off your writing skills. Stretch your wings and step out of your comfort zone. It has been my experience that these types of posts help to sell books.
Be entertaining. Be creative. Show my readers what you got!
Create an interesting piece and email me at email@example.com to submit your post for my consideration. I reserve the right to make punctuation and spelling changes if need be.
Be professional. If you want to sell books and introduce people to your writing, you need to put your BEST foot forward in these posts.
You are more than welcome to talk about your book(s). In fact, I encourage it.
At the end of the post, I will be happy to include your author photo, links, and images of your books, along with an author bio. Please furnish this information to me in your email proposal. Don’t forget to include links to where readers can find you: blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and one other link of your choice.
If you wish to include photos in your post that is fine also. Make sure to give me the photo credits if it is not your photograph.
Here are some links to Author Spotlight Guest Posts I highlighted in 2017 on my blog:
The posts above did well and had excellent reader engagement. Remember, the writing must be your own and original. Please add a © to the post.
If your post is accepted, I will let you know the date I have it scheduled. Please come back to the post and comment and interact with my readers. They may very well become your readers too, so don’t overlook a great opportunity to spread the word about your work.
Please be entertaining. Think about the what you like to read on other blogs. This post is your time to shine as a writer.
Show me what you got! Thanks, and I’m looking forward to your presentations.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you. ❤
“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”
