Send Completed Questionairre, Picture & Book Cover Image to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, ‘author ready to be scheduled’
- My request of you is to provide me a complimentary autographed copy of your book to read and properly market. This is NOT necessary to be featured.
- PLEASE UNDERSTAND that sending me your book will not guarantee you a BOOK REVIEW. My reading pile is humongous… and I DO NOT read under a time-frame since unfortunately, I do not read for a living; this project (author interviews & FREE marketing using my social media connections) is a way to recognize the work of amazing authors and one in which I enjoy doing and not compensated for.
