I’d like to start a new feature on my blog, designating Wednesdays for promoting other indie authors and their work. I’ll accept guest posts and book spotlights, and they’ll be scheduled in the order that I receive them. Guidelines are listed below.
The last Wednesday of each month, instead of posting a submission, I’ll simply host an open pimping thread where anyone with something to promote can leave a link to it in the comments.
Reviews & interviews–at least, those conducted by me–aren’t part of this. I simply don’t have the time to do them on anything resembling a regular basis.
Maximum word count: 1,000 words. I try to run a family-friendly blog, so keep it clean. This isn’t the place to promote erotica or anything x-rated, and I reserve the right to use my best judgement as to whether something is appropriate for my audience. This blog is pretty eclectic and runs a gamut of topics, but try to tie it into any of the following topics: self-publishing advice & experiences, writing advice, the craft of writing, inspiration for your story, pop culture & fandom. Avoid political screeds, and be respectful of beliefs that differ from your own. This isn’t that kind of blog.
Include your byline, author bio, author photo, a link back to your blog, and purchasing links to the book that you’re currently promoting, along with a cover graphic.
Include your author photo and bio, your book’s description and cover (if you have a series, you can describe the whole series, but please choose only one cover image to represent it), links to purchase, and links to your blog and social networks.
Again, I reserve the right to use my best judgment as to whether your book is appropriate for my audience.
You can comment here, e-mail me, or PM me on Facebook with any questions. E-mail your submission to jmbauhaus @ gmail.com.
