Author Interviews in 2009

One of the things I like to do with this blog is give other authors a chance to shine in the spotlight of publicity. To this end, I participate in a few blog tours, and I do Author Interviews.

Have the person arranging your blog tour contact me at

If you are an author interested in having an interview with me this year, please read these instructions. I will be selecting authors who have books that were released in 2008 or will be released this year. Be aware that I do not read or promote books beyond my conservative lifestyle. If you write erotica, graphic scenes of sexual content, violence, or gay/lesbian literature, this blog is not the venue for you. Thank you for respecting my right to choose.

There will be comment contests attached to the interviews, so please be prepared to mail a copy of your book to the winner. I will limit the contests to the United States, unless you will also mail to Canada. If you live in another area of the world, please indicate how far you will mail your book.

Please copy the following interview questions into an email, answer the questions, and send the email to me at with the subject line "Author Interview." If you have to use and attach a word processing document, "Save As" Rich Text Format, Works 8, or Word 2003. I don't read docx files. I will contact you to make arrangements to get an image of your book cover and an image of you.

I thank you, and the readers of this blog thank you.
