Submit Your Book

To Submit Your Book please send an email to my address at or use my Contact Form. If you have any questions you can email me at the address already provided, although please be aware that at the moment I am only accepting submissions from authors that are following my Twitter account. This is just to make it easier on me at the moment as I haven’t figured out a way to have more than 24 hours in a day yet (I’m working on it).

What I need to know from you:

  • This is your chance to shine! What do you want a potential reader to know about your book? Do you want them to see a blurb, or do you want to write what your book means to you?
  • A cover for your book is preferred as it will make your post stand out more than a wall of text
  • If you want to add something about yourself feel free to whether that be an author bio, a photograph, or something witty so you’ll be remembered – but this is all optional so only add what you feel comfortable including
  • Links to buy your book are required, but you can include links to Twitter, Facebook, your blog, your website, or whatever else you can think to link to
  • I require that you tell me what genre your book is so that I can add it to an appropriate category
  • If your post or book is going to contain profanity or anything that could be considered offensive please mention that so that I can add a warning somewhere
  • If you wish to have particular tags (these are listed at the bottom of each post and help readers find posts that they would be interested in), let me know, otherwise I will choose my own; mine will always include the title of your book, your name, the places it can be purchased at, your genre, and a few generic tags

I might update this at some point in the future with other guidelines, otherwise, that’s it!

What you can expect from me:

  • I will give you fairly free reign to say exactly what you want to say, in the space given
  • At this present time, I am offering this service free of charge, and if I did decide to charge anything in the future I wouldn’t charge anything to the authors I’d already posted about
  • I will continue to retweet you on Twitter if I can, and I will also directly tweet the link to your post here on a regular basis so you can be sure it won’t lose visibility
  • This is not a review website; any badmouthing of authors or books will be deleted (people that feel the need to do that can go to many, many, other websites)
  • If you find there is more you wish to say after your post has been added, or it needs editing slightly, get in touch with me and I will make the appropriate changes
  • For authors that have more than one book, you can submit each book separately
  • If you have a WordPress or Blogspot blog, I will follow you
  • I only ask you to follow me on Twitter, you are not required to interact with me, RT me, or favorite anything I have to say (although I always appreciate it when it happens as it usually helps other authors!)
  • If you must unfollow me on Twitter you can feel free to after I have added your post, and I will still tweet a link to it (although I will probably not retweet you as much)
  • I will consider any author, and any genre however if I consider the title, book cover or contents to be less than family friendly, for the sake of all visitors, I may hide your book behind a “click here for more” link, or may alter the subject title to not reveal the full book title (I will decide this on a case by case basis though and hope that everyone can understanding the reasoning for it)

I cannot promise a boatload of sales, and I cannot promise that updates will be speedy, but I can promise I will try my best to get your name out there. Will it really hurt to try?

Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
