Self-Published? Get involved!

I’m holding a self-publishing month on my blog December 2014 and want as many writers as possible to get involved. I will be hosting a self-published book giveaway, author interviews, guest posts, and a few book reviews.

I know how hard it can be to start promoting a novel and want to provide some exposure for those who believe in their writing. I will be advertising this event on social media and encourage others to do the same!

What can I do?

I’m looking for interviewees as well as anyone who would like to do a guest blog post on anything related to writing. Articles should be between 500 to 1500 words long and may take a few rounds of editing first so please send them to me ASAP -7th December at the absolute latest.

Great! How can I get involved?

Please follow my blog first so that I know you're truly interested and want to support others in the event too. Next use the contact form on the right-hand side starting with the phrase ‘December Self-publishing Fest’. I’ll send you the list of interview questions and let me know if you want to donate a copy of your book for a giveaway or write a guest post.

Why December?

Many individuals will be moments away from a completed NaNoWriMo novel and looking for information on what to do next. As well as providing exposure for you and your novel, it’s a chance to help others decide if this is the route for them.

What if I want to be controversial?

I’m not promoting self-publishing over the traditional route, especially as I know it can be expensive to do it right and some individuals may not be ready to promote their work. If you've had a negative experience with self-publishing, then I would very much like to hear from you as well.

I can’t wait to hear back from you guys!
