Want to be featured on the Writers and Authors blog? #GuestPost #Interview #BookShowcase


Want to be featured on the Writers and Authors blog?


Submit your guest post for publication on the blog.



Guidelines:



Please keep on topic. Writers and Authors readers are interested in articles about/related to writing, the writing industry, events for writers, how to, marketing both on and offline, time management, etc...



Although you are welcome to use your own experience as an example, guest posts should be geared towards offering advice to other writers and NOT just be an elaborate authors bio. The interview feature is for 'getting to know the author'. 



All guest posts must be original content.



Articles should be between 400 and 800 words. I will however consider longer posts, and may break them up and use them as a series of posts.



This is currently a non-paying market, although this may change in the future. 



Want to be featured on the Writers and Authors blog? #GuestPost #Interview #BookShowcaseWriters and Authors is for all levels and therefore welcomes submissions from both experienced and beginner writers.



All submissions should be sent in the body of an email to writersandauthors@yahoo.it with "guest post" in the subject line. Send in plain text. No indents etc. Verdana 12. One line spacing between paragraphs.



Include an author byline with your web-link. NOTE: You may only include a maximum of 2 links and they must be directly relevant to the post e.g. to your author website or the product page for your book. ALL guest posts MUST include an author byline.


If submitting an image to go with the post you must include its credit link. Please make sure you submit an author photo to be posted with your article. Images should be sent as jpeg attachments.  Tour banners and a book cover are also welcome.


Copyright should be that of the writer submitting the article. Copyright will remain with the author.


If you have already been reserved a date for posting, the guest post must be sent at least 3 days before the scheduled posting date.

Guest posts are posted on Mondays and Thursdays.

Have your book listed in the W&A Bookstore


Email me your Amazon purchasing link and let me know the category you would like it listed under. You are welcome to submit multiple books for inclusion in the bookstore.

These guidelines are here for a reason. Please follow them when sending your submission. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in your post being rejected (this is valid for both individual authors and those submitting through tour companies).

A few things to keep in mind

Please DO NOT send multiple emails to follow up on your submission. If you followed the guidelines above correctly I will contact you via email to let you know the date of posting and the permalink for the post. If you don't hear back from me within a month of sending me your submission chances are you didn't follow the guidelines and therefore will not be featured on site. 

The editorial calendar tends to fill up a month or two in advance so please keep in mind that your post may not be posted to the website the same month you submit your materials. If you are planning a book tour and would like your post to be scheduled during a particular time frame please let me know when submitting your content and I will do my best to post it during that time. If not, it will be posted on the next available day on the calendar.

The posting schedule is:

Sunday - Book showcase (often with a rafflecopter giveaway)
Monday - Guest post
Tuesday -  Interview
Wednesday - Post by me :)
Thursday - Guest post
Friday - Excerpt 
Saturday - Book review

Disclosure (and why I host you for free): I use my Amazon Associate link to point to your books in the posts. That way, if someone clicks on it and downloads it, I get a percentage of anything that person ends up buying within 24 hours of clicking the link. That’s how Amazon Associate works ;)
Free advertisement for you… and all you had to do was submit your content. It’s a win-win situation.
