This will be a Celebration of Indie Authors – Spotlight Interview Lineup
I’m excited to announce that I will be featuring a select number of Indie Authors and their work here on the Holistic Fox Creative (HFC) blog! In this series, readers will get to learn about Independent Authors as professional artists – why they choose this type of work, what their process is, and what advice they give aspiring authors. The number of authors that will be featured in this series is to be determined based on the level of interest I receive from the independent writing community.
I will be promoting this series through my social media (Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest). If you or someone you know is an Indie Author, please share or visit the link provided to download the Author Questionnaire. This is the first step in the process – if you are selected for promotion, I will get back with you to inquire about photos and links to your most current or relevant work to include in the posting. At that time, your interview will be placed into the line-up.
Are You An Indie Author?
Are you your own creative director? Do you have written works that you’d like to promote? Could you use a little more exposure as an independent author? Want to expand your following, make new connections, and build community relationships?
Have you already had written works published in the form of books, e-books, or through a magazine or other publication?
Do you have a project that has just been released or is set to come out soon with a definite release date?
If this applies to you, I’d like to interview you to be featured on Holistic Fox Creative! Interested?
I’m going to make this interview process super simple!
All you need to do is download my Author Questionnaire, fill it out, and send it back to me. This is just to get us started. The answers I receive will determine any potential follow up questions and further details.
From this point, it will be up to me to get back to you about a possible feature and I will let you know what more I may need to proceed.
The Fine Print
Please note: although it will be at my discretion as to whether I schedule a feature of you and your work – my decision will solely be based on quality and availability (and in rare instances, content) of your work. I will not actively try to make my decision to include your work based on things about you personally or your topic/genre of choice. Those rare instances I speak of regarding content include topics of hot debate such as politics and religion (though some may be considered) or topics that are created as a form of hate speech or that promote discriminatory or illegal activities (these will never be considered).
What I’m Really Looking For
The main thing that I’m looking for are authors who have a sincere passion for writing (meaning: you devote most of yourself to honing your skill and producing quality work) – and, that these authors have completed works (meaning: you have published works already available to the public or you have a definite release date set for your first published work).
Readers of Holistic Fox Creative may be interested in a number of topics and genres, as well as author personalities and styles. Therefore, whether I read books in your genre is irrelevant. I am, however, personally interested in your life as a writer, your life experiences and advice, your inspirations and aspirations, your writing process, and your work as a whole.
Whether you write fiction or non-fiction, instructional or technical, memoirs or biographies, children’s books, sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, paranormal, horror, cerebral, poetry, or even erotica – I want to hear from you!
Whether you are newly published for the first time or have many pre-released works, I want to hear from you!
So…if you would like a little extra press and exposure for your work and you as an author, please participate in this Author Interview Submission Call.
If you know any other upcoming or established independent authors with definite release dates of their work or already released works – please share this with them!
At this time I have not set a limit on how many author interviews I plan to release in this series, but this may change depending on how many submissions I receive.
So come on, test my limits!
This inquiry will be running until August 2019. (subject to change)
Update: It’s August and I’m still accepting submissions because it’s going quite well and I just love supporting Independent Authors!
I’m thinking about doing something similar to this for Artisans – please let me know in the comments if you would be interested in that!
Also, I’ve been so inspired by the indie author spotlight series that I’ve decided I’ll be accepting poetry submissions for promotion on HFC – Stay tuned!
Let me know what you think about this new Celebration of Indie Authors Series! I’d love to get your thoughts and expectations. Comment below!
