Blog Spots

Before we begin please make a note that these spots are currently completely free to all published authors. I give my free time to arrange them and appreciate quick, polite returns. Where as I do not ask for payment if you should feel so inclined to offer me a similar spot on your own web space, I never say no to cross promotion. :)


Meet A Writer Monday

Meet a Writer Monday spots are open to all published authors who want to get their book out there to new readers. Spots are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

How to get a spot:

1. Contact me - either by emailing me at sonnetodell@hotmail.com with Meet A Writer Spot in the subject line or by using the contact me tab.

2. Once I have seen your email, I will be in contact with the question list.

Note: The question list is usually about fifty questions that change annually. You will NOT be required to answer all fifty. That's ridiculous and time consuming. The list is only this long to give the interviewee choice and so that every interview is not exactly the same. A decent sized interview is between 10 and 15 answers.

3. Once you have answered your chosen questions. Return your interview to me with the following:

  • Cover Art
  • Book Blurb
  • Author Image - this can be an actual picture of you, or a cartoon or gif designed to represent you.
  • Micro Author Bio - I usually ask that these been no more than a paragraph and in the 3rd person if possible.
  • Link to an Extract - You may include a link to an extract on another website.
  • Media Link - I want readers to be able to find you afterwards so please include links to your own blogs, websites, facebook and twitter.
  • A Buy link - if people want to purchase your book its great for them to just be able to click something at the end of the interview.
Note: I reserve the right to edit all interviews.

4. Once I have all your materials, I will assign you a date on the schedule. Spots run every two weeks on a Monday through out the year. A day or two before you're interview is due to go live I will send you a reminder email about it including a link for the article.

The Schedule for 2016 is Closed

The Schedule for 2017 is now Open

Writers On

Writers On is a Friday guest spot. You can talk about anything you like, especially writing. Technique, creating settings, characters, your journeys from start to finish, trying a new genre, the weather, charity work, absolutely anything. Please send an inquiry email in the first instance or use the contact form.

What I will need is:
  • The Guest post itself.
  • An Author Image
  • A 3rd Person Paragraph or two about you including you social media information.
  • If you have a book you want to promote please include Cover Art, Blurb and Buy Link.

Sunday Showcase

The Sunday Showcase is for published authors who don't have time for a lengthy interview and just want a quick sharp shot of exposure.

How to get a spot:

1.  Contact me - either by emailing me at sonnetodell@hotmail.com with Sunday Showcase in the subject line or by using the contact me tab.

2. Once I have seen your email, I will reply and give you the green light to send the following for the showcase.

  • Cover Art
  • Book Blurb
  • Author Image - I prefer for this to be an actual photo/cartoon/caricature of the author
  • Micro Author Bio - I usually ask that these been no more than a paragraph and in the 3rd person if possible - including links for personal website, Facebook and twitter only.
  • A Buy link
3. I will program it in for the next available Sunday and provide you with a link.

Note: These are not scheduled at the current time because I have no idea how high interest will be but will be done on a first come first served basis.
