I’ve done this twice before and on both occasions been overwhelmed by the lack of response. All authors need help, a word in the internet’s ear and I don’t like taking without giving. In the past I have laid down a few rules, the intention being to give authors who write ‘outside the box’ a chance to get their work noticed. There obviously aren’t many authors writing outside the box, and I’m still not prepared to allow romances on a blog predominantly themed towards heavy rock, vampirism, black magic and weirdness!
But in spite of previous attempts I’m going to have another go…
Authors, would you like to have a feature here at The Opening Sentence?
My simple rules are as follows:
1 – The work must be complete
2 – It must be available from multiple online sources (no Amazon exclusivity)
3 – It must fit the mood and theme of The Opening Sentence. No romance! No children’s stories.
And it would also help if your book cover doesn’t look like your Uncle Walter designed it for you in Microsoft Paint.
If you’re interested have a look round the blog to see the tone of the articles and if you think your work fits contact me in the first instance via the Contact link at the top. Those selected will go into a schedule of posts over the coming weeks. If you want to see who’s been featured in the past click the Guest Blogs link at the top.
I look forward to hearing from you outside-the-boxers.
