After taking a hiatus from hosting my Author Exhange Blog, I've got it back up and running with a slightly different format. In addition to interviewing published authors (any genre/format) and other publishing professionals, I'm now also publishing Guest Blog Posts and doing some book reviews.
In the year between February 2009 and Feburary 2010, I published nearly 100 interviews with a variety of published authors, editors, publishers and other industry professionals. All genres were represented, as were a magazine and a couple of book publishers. My aim is to help other writers spread the good word about their work and their passion.
We writers walk just a step out of time with the rest of the world...after all, how many people do you know who actually prefer sitting in room all by themselves, living with imaginary friends and lives?
Due to time constraints (I was actually spending between 15 and 20 hours a week with duties related to the Author Exchange Blog before going on hiatus), I've implemented strict submission guidelines and have extended the length of time I need before scheduling guest appearances on the blog. I'm hoping the new guidelines will not only help me manage my time better, but will also streamline the process of getting more people up on the blog.
Feel free to spread the word to any writers, or other people in the industry, you may know.
