Submit an Interview

Readers love to get to know authors, and an interview is a great way for an author to give their readers a glimpse into their writing process, life, hobbies, travels, and personality. If you're an author seeking to be interviewed, please follow the steps below.


1) Download our Guest Author Interview Sheet. This will provide you with a list of potential interview questions, though authors are welcome to provide their own. We do expect your interview to be free of obvious errors and appropriate for all audiences.


2) Once you have all of your information gathered, including your book cover and author image (optional), return to this page and complete the form below. Interviews are published in the order they're submitted. If you have a specific date in mind to coincide with a new book release, we recommend submitting your information at least three weeks prior to the release date. We are unable to accommodate last-minute requests.

3) PLEASE submit only one feature at a time.


If you write books in one of the following genres, you may be interviewed.

Historical Romance, Contemporary Romance, Historical Fiction, Mysteries, Suspense, & Thrillers, Inspirational Romance, Inspirational Fiction (non-romance/non-religious), Historical/Contemporary Western Romance, Western, Historical Mystery, Historical or Contemporary with Paranormal/Fantasy elements, and Women's Fiction. 


If a genre or sub-genre is not listed above, we do not currently feature it.


What We Don't Review or Feature

This is a family-friendly site. While we do read books that may feature some steamy scenes and swearing (we have a rating system), we do have some limitations based on content. We do not review or feature erotica, erotica romance, BDSM, or books which contain or promote incest, pedophilia, necrophilia, bestiality, rape, cruelty to animals, racial intolerance, or sexual encounters with minors. We also do not feature books with heavy/explicit language.


We reserve the right not to feature any book, or other content, that does not meet quality publishing standards in terms of editing and cover design. Submission of an interview is not a guarantee that it will be posted.
