Welcome back!

Firstly I’d like to wish you all a very happy and successful New Year. Let’s make 2010 the best one yet!

For those of you organising virtual tours or just looking for a way to spread the word and promote your writing, books, publishing company, magazine etc… I’d like to invite you to be interviewed for this site. All interviews will be posted on this site on Tuesday each week. Spaces are assigned by the order in which they are applied for, so first come first served! If you are planning a virtual tour for a specific period of the year please contact well in advance to assure posting at that time.
If you are interested in being interviewed please send an email to writersandauthors@yahoo.it including some information about yourself/company, your web link and why you would like to be interviewed e.g. to promote latest book. All genres are accepted however interview questions and answers will be clean and suitable reading for all.

I’d also like to invite you all to send in your book reviews for posting to this site. It can be a good review you received and want to share or one you’ve written for another author. Please remember that the idea is to promote good books and not to put down authors. I’m not saying negative comments can’t be included (constructive criticism helps writers grow and let’s face it not everyone likes everything about the books they read) but I ask that the positives out weigh the negatives.
Reviews should be sent in the body of an email to writersandauthors@yahoo.it. Please include a by-line for the reviewer and ISBN for the book where possible.

Other features on the site include; video’s for authors, sites of interest and short articles related to the writing industry. If you would like to submit content for any of these categories please use the email writersandauthors@yahoo.it (for video’s use embed code).

Please feel free to let others know about these opportunities so they can take advantage too.

Just one last note. Recently lots of people have been leaving SPAM in the comments section on the posts on this site. I now have a big job of cleaning it all up again. SPAM will not be tolerated. All comments should be in English language and related to the content of the site.


  1. Hi, what a great opportunity I really must thank you!

    It's nice to find a place that welcomes authors with open arms...you'd be surprised but it really is a rarity out here in cyberspace.

    Much obliged :)

  2. You're very welcome. Happy to do my bit. Us writers need to stick together :)

  3. Jo, sounds great. I sent you an email...did you get it?

    PS- I see that you are in Rome. I visited there a few years back, it's beautiful.


I love to hear from you. So feel free to comment, but keep in mind the basics of blog etiquette — no spam, no profanity, no slander, etc.

Thanks for being an active part of the Writers and Authors community.
