Book Spotlight Guidelines

If you are an author and would like to have your book spotlighted on this blog, please follow these guidelines:

  • Put the words "book spotlight" in the subject line and the name of this blog in the body of the email.
  • Submit a short book synopsis/blurb, a medium sized jpg or gif photo of your book cover, a short author bio and an author photo. 
  • Please put the name of your book, plus your bio and book synopsis in either the body of the email or a Word .doc attachment, a .rtf or .txt attachment (please, no other files). Attach your photos separately to the email. No PDF files.
  • Do not send me a PDF attachment unless you have ABSOLUTELY NO OTHER OPTION OR ARE UNDER THREAT OF DEATH.
  • Add links to where your book can be found.
  • If you have a book trailer, you can include the video embed code or link.
  • If you wish to send an excerpt to be added to the spotlight, that's fine, but please make it short. 200-500 words is ideal. 
  • Do not send me your book, review blurbs or any other promotional files.

I prefer to feature fiction (although generally not erotica), but certain types of non-fiction is acceptable (but please no self-help, how-to, relationship issues, parenting advice, etc.). I accept any type of published author.  You can contact me at:

And please note: any paranormal, fantasy, science fiction or horror will be spotlighted on my main blog, Are You Afraid of the Dark?
