Are you a writer? We want to share your story (about writing).
Susan and I have been swamped much of the last year, but we really want to make the Tameri blog a great place to learn about the craft of writing and the business of writing. It isn’t enough to be passionate about writing if you want to be a professional. Writing is sometimes the easy part.
Even if you don’t care about making a lot of money, you still need to market a book that you believe is important for others to read. You have to consider how to promote your book and how to promote yourself. That’s part of being a writer in our media-saturated world.
If you are a published writer, and we include self-publishing as published, then we would love to interview you (via email) and share your insights with other writers and aspiring writers. Our goal is to have at least one new Tameri blog entry each week on the “business” of being a writer. We can’t do this without you, though.
We aren’t going to blindly promote your books. Our goal is to share what it means to be a writer. Of course, if you would like us to review a book let us know and Susan or I will read it and post an honest review.
We are looking for the following interview topics:
- Why I do/do not use an agent — and any experiences with agents.
- Self-publishing, especially your stories about editors, cover artists, and other specialists you might have hired.
- Book tours, real and virtual, are always good for a story or two.
- Interview experiences that went great or not so great.
- Getting into magazines or publishing on “big” websites.
Our visitors will likely look for your books if you share your stories about the craft and business of writing.
Send a bit about yourself and why you want to be interviewed for the Tameri blog! Write to either susan at tameri.com or cswyatt at tameri.com and we’ll respond as soon as possible. Interviews are promoted on our Facebook page, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
