Author Interview Q with Katie

Copy and paste these interview questions into an email and send to Katie Shelby -  with "Authors books reviews and interviews" in the subject line. (interviews will be posted at Katie's discretion - and time permitting) If you would like Katie to take a look at your book for a possible, but not a guaranteed review, (her reading list is very long) please gift her one for her kindle. At the very least, she will post the cover for you on the blog/facebook.

Indie Authors get first preference.  And as you can imagine, sometimes there is a backlog so there will be a waiting period.

Complete the questions that you like - remove the ones you don't.  And add as many new questions as you like that you would like to answer.  This will make your interview more personal.  

This blog has received over 100,000+ (probably more now) hits because of interviews just like this one - so thank you!

Please also include a pic of yourself if you like, and a pic of your favorite place to write, a favorite room in your house or garden or perhaps your beloved pet.  The choice is yours.   The idea is to make the interview more personal.

We will also post the interview on facebook and tweet it for extra exposure for you. 

While you are waiting for your interview to appear, I recommend you join these 2 facebook sites for more author support and promotion.
