For Authors

For various reasons, I will no longer be hosting the Featured Artist Friday meme. However, if you are still interested in having your writing promoted on this site, read on!

This blog is read primarily by young adults and young families. Some of my readers are even as young as eight years old. In that vein, I only promote wholesome, family-friendly books/movies/music/art. Thus, I am only interested in promoting artists whose works are family-friendly/YA appropriate. If your book contains bedroom scenes, crude or foul language, innuendo, or graphic violence, then I am afraid that this is not the place for your interview.

Also, my site is visited primarily by fans of the speculative fiction genre, and so that is the genre I am most interested in promoting. I may make certain exceptions for other genres if I have read and absolutely loved your book outside of the spec. fiction genre, but that will be on a case-by-case basis.

If you have written a book that is family-friendly and are willing to be a little creative, then feel free to contact me at: jenelle.l.schmidt@gmail.com

In your email, please include the following:

1. Your name

2. Your book’s title and genre

3. A brief description of your book

4. A brief explanation of why you believe your book fits my family-friendly criteria

5. A link to your website (if you have one)

I will contact you to set up the promotion, which will most often take the form of a “Character Interview.” I prefer to do a little bit of back and forth instead of canned interview questions, so I might ask if you have the ability to “chat” over facebook or if you’re willing to do a little more back-and-forth through emails.
