Are you an author looking for a way to get your work out there? Or maybe you’re just looking for a way to connect with other authors and readers. Either way, our Author Spotlight program is a great way to do just that! Each month, we spotlight a different author on our blog, featuring an interview, excerpts from their work, and more. It’s a great way to connect with readers and promote your work.
If you’re an aspiring author, you might be wondering how to get your work noticed. One way to do this is to submit an author spotlight to us. An author spotlight is a feature where we showcase a new or upcoming author and their work. It’s a great way to get exposure to your work and to reach new readers.
We hope this has helped give you some insight into how to submit an author spotlight. Good luck and we look forward to reading your work! We look forward to featuring you on our blog!
Who are Author Spotlights for?
Author Spotlights are for any author or writer of any genre. Note: I DO NOT REVIEW ANY WRITTEN WORK, BOOKS, ETC. ON MY BLOG. I am an author who blogs about books, not a book blogger (yes there is a difference). With that being said, I do not include reviews in any of my author spotlights. I interview an author with a shortlist of questions I’ve created discussing their writing journey, writing loves (or pet peeves), and of course their books!
Booking an Author Spotlight:
To submit an author spotlight, simply fill out the form on our website. We’ll need some basic information about you and your work, as well as a short bio and headshot. Once we have all of that, we’ll review your submission and get back to you if we’re interested in featuring you on our site.
What the Author Spotlight entails:
Are you an author with an upcoming book? Or maybe you’ve already published a few books and you’re looking for a way to get more exposure. Either way, you might be wondering how to submit an author spotlight to us. Well, wonder no more! Here are our guidelines for an author great spotlight:
What is included in our spotlights:
- The spotlight should be between 250-500 words.
- It should be a well-written, informative article that gives readers a glimpse into your writing process, your inspirations, and/or your latest book.
- You may include up to two links to your website or blog, as well as ONE link to your book’s sales page.
- We will also need a high-resolution headshot of you, as well as a short bio.
- Once you have all of the above, simply send it to us via email and we’ll take it from there.
- We hope these guidelines help, and we look forward to reading your submissions!

Payment and rescheduling:
This is a FREE service I provide to highlight other authors and their work. If you schedule a spotlight with me, you have until three days before your spotlight at 8:00pm (EST) to provide me with all the materials I need. If not, I will place your spotlight on hold and email you about rescheduling. After one reschedules, I cancel your spotlight.
If you’re interested in being featured in an Author Spotlight, simply fill out the form on our website. We’ll be in touch if your submission is selected. Well, that’s all I have to say! I can’t wait to connect with you!
