Self Published Authors
We are very grateful to the self published community for giving us an opportunity to review their work when Big Book Little Book was in its infancy. Over the years we have found our review pile has gone from manageable to mountainous. As a result we have been able to dedicate less and less time and energy to self and indy published titles.
The idea forgrew out of our desire to maintain our links with the self/independently published community. The aim of the feature is to showcase the author, their work, and self/indi/Small press publishing as an attractive consumer choice.
The first Self Published Sunday guest spot was published on the 22nd of July 2012 (you can read that, and our existing Self Published Sunday posts, here)
We are currently scheduling post for July 2015 onwards.
Posts are generally scheduled on a first come first served basis but where possible we will try to accommodate dates which co-inside with a books release, an existing blog tour or a recognised themed (blog or social media)event i.e. Mental Health Month, LGBTQ, #WeNeedDiverseBooks
Guest Post Ideas
We are fairly flexible about how this guest post is utilised. However, the content must be relevant to the featured book and be suitable for a blog containing children’s book reviews (no swearing or explicit sexual content). We will not tolerate/post discriminatory or hateful content.
Some suggestions we have for possible content include:
*A blogpost on any subject of your choosing
*A blog post about self publishing- Writing ( including inspiration, process), Publication, Promotion, Social media
*An extract, deleted scene, teaser scene from the featured book.
*A music playlist/ fantasy movie cast list for the featured book.
*An author interview. A list of interview questions is available on request.
While we are happy to feature character interviews we request that you provided content relevant questions in edition to the answers!
We would be delighted to hear any alternative ideas you may have for the post’s content.
We recommend that each author’s post:
*contains an author bio (photo optional),
*features the book art and synopsis from one book (authors choice),
*includes links to the authors own website and social network profiles( i.e.. twitter, good reads, tumbler).
We are also happy to also include a book trailer and purchasing information.
