If there’s one thing I love about writing, it’s telling stories, and when I’m writing non-fiction, I love telling the stories of other people. That’s why I’d like to open my site up a tad and invite newly published fiction authors to drop me a line — I would love to feature you in a Q+A segment similar to the one I conducted with Kimberly Gould in October.
How will it work? I will ask you a barrage of weird questions about you and your book, you answer them, and I’ll give you a shout-out right here. (When I say weird, I mean check out the questions I asked Kimberly.)
As it stands, my site doesn’t have much of a readership, but then that’s what we’re both trying to build, and any publicity is good publicity (right?).
Ideally, I’d like to try to do this twice a year (April and October), so if you’re an author, send me an email or DM on Twitter. I’m still working out any possible bugs, but I think it’ll be a really fun opportunity to connect with other writers and get that writerly contact high from their passion for the craft.
FYI, I will give preference to Canadian writers and writers of genre fiction (e.g., horror, sci-fi, mystery, thriller) because it’s near and dear to me.
