Authors – Be Involved
We have a number of ways for authors to get involved with our blog and our social media sites, FOR FREE.
See the different posts below. We accept all genres in this section except for religious, political, and medical.
We have recently seen an increase in authors contacting us with just their book details and no other context. Please make sure you let us know which post(s) you would like to take part in. Emails without the relevant information will be deleted.
