***How To Get An Interview On My Blog

Hi Everyone!! :-)

I've had several people ask how they can get an interview on my blog.  The answer is, it couldn't be easier: ask. ;-)  If you would like an interview, just answer the questions I have posted below and email the answers to mistralkdawn@gmail.com.  If you'd like to include a cover image, teaser, etc., attach them to the email.  You can answer any or all of the questions, and/or add more that you wish I'd asked.  Once I get your answers, I'll "chat the interview up" and then post it on my blog when I have a free day.  Alternatively, you can ask for a specific date and if I don't already have something scheduled for that day, it's yours.  I am also willing to post new release announcements, sale announcements, event announcements, etc.  All interviews are posted on a first come/first served basis which depends on when I receive your answers.  Announcements are also posted on a first come/first served basis.

What if you'd like an interview but you aren't an author?  Email me and tell me what you'd like to be interviewed about and I'll try to come up with some questions. :-)  Same rules apply for when and how it will be posted. :-) Who's eligible?  Authors, poets, painters, cover artists, musicians, basically artists of any description who work in both/either the physical world and/or the digital world, readers, book bloggers, other bloggers, charities, advocates, etc., etc.  Basically, if you would like to talk about something, and what you want to talk about doesn't put anyone else down, you can have an interview on my blog. :-)

Thank you all for visiting my blog!! :-)
