Author Interview Submission Instructions
As an indie author I know how hard it is to get seen in this business. I started this blog just to get the word out there about my YA series BLOOD ANGEL (book 1: Awaken and book 2: Beginnings). But, I have come to realize that there is a whole world of indie authors out there, and that if we stick together and help each other out maybe more of us can reach our goals. So, in an effort to extend a helping hand I have started ‘Author Interviews’ on my blog.
If you’re interested in doing an author interview on my blog (https://ninasoden.wordpress.com/), all you have to do is complete the questions below and return them to me via email at NinaSodenBooks@gmail.com
Interviews will be posted in the order they are received. I will post one author interview every Monday (two at the most). When yours gets posted will depend on how many submissions I have. (Indie Authors get first preference). Once everything has been submitted I will email you the date you can expect your interview to be posted.
Please include an author photo as well as an image of your book cover to be included with your interview.
Complete the questions that you like and remove the ones that you don’t. If removing questions please make sure you re-number the remaining questions.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this interview and for allowing us a small glimpse into your writing world. As I said before I am doing these interviews because I believe it is important for writers to support each other. I will post your interview here on my site, on Facebook, Twitter, and on LinkedIn. All I ask in return is that you extend the same support to me. If you do author interviews or if you host guest bloggers please let me know what your submission process is. Also, please share my name and book information on your social media sites by copying and pasting the information below:
