In April 2018, I celebrated five years of self-publishing and I decided that it was time to start to give something back. Over those years I’ve been fortunate to have been helped and encouraged by some wonderful people, both Indie Authors and Traditionally published ones.
Hence my new project
I’ve decided to offer Indie authors like myself the platform to express themselves on this website in a new feature that I’m developing. I’m thinking more about the beginner’s, authors like I was five years ago. People who are struggling to get exposure. As I’ve found, by helping each other we can all benefit.
I’m looking for guest posts about your writing journey, where you see your future, a short story you’ve written, even just a link to your website. Whatever it is, I’ll see if I can find a place for it. Although I primarily write Scifi and Steampunk, I’ll consider anything except erotica, just as long as it’s interesting. As far as possible, I’m happy to schedule posts for when it’s most convenient for you so that you have time to think about what you would like to say.
The legal stuff
Subject to my final approval (I have to say that, I don’t want to get sued), you can say what you want about yourself and your writing. No rants about how unfair it all is.
For example, you could describe how and why you got started, what sort of things you write and how it has been influenced. Make sure that you include quotes, extracts and covers/blurbs.
Obviously, put all your links in as well. Or perhaps you can give me a short story or freebie that I can offer to showcase your work.
A post size of about 1000 words is good, not including extracts or examples. I don’t want a whole novel! Make sure that you include photo’s as well.
If you want a spot; we can go through all the technical formatting stuff later.
I will advertise your post in the same way that I do my own posts, on Facebook and Twitter. I will supply you with a link and leave you to do the same with your contacts.
If you fancy a spot on the Showcase, let me know and we can talk details. Use the comment box below and get in touch!
While you’re here, take a look around my site and grab some freebies!
