November's Newsletter is just around the corner. I am trying to get into the groove of getting it out on the first of every month and November will be the first month that I hope to accomplish this goal.
The theme is: Colonization
I currently have one short story on the theme and one series of blog posts about NaNoWriMo. I would like at least 2 more articles. Please include images with your articles/short stories. They make everything more interesting. Up to 3 per article/story.
I have the Featured Author set up and one volunteer for a character interview. I need 2 more people/characters to be interviewed and I need people willing to be the interviewers. It has been suggested that we should just make up questions and let the authors answer those and turn them in. However, the whole point of this newsletter/blog is to get everyone participating some recognition and in my experience everyone interviews differently. I still think that is the most interesting way to do this, but if you disagree, let me know.
Interviewers: Please be sure to get a short bio from the author, a cover image for one of their books - preferably the one you talked about in the interview, and a head shot of the author and don't forget the link to the book.
Interviewees: Please be sure to provide all the above listed items to your interviewer.
Please let me know in comments to this thread if you are launching a book in November (or in October that I missed this go round.) I like to promote book launches, so if you have one coming up, I need:
- A cover image that is at least 400x600. I may not use that size, but it helps to have options.
- The link to where to buy the book
- A short blurb - no more than 150 words
- And if it is having a launch party any time after the first week of the month, I can try to get that in too, so a link would be nice.
I have one blog share so far. I need at least 3 more. If you have written or will write a blog post that has to do with colonization, those get preference. Same with short stories.
