A unique opportunity for authors

Blogger invites writers to venture into a new market

Shirazi of Light Within has started a series of posts about books and their authors. Shi is inviting authors to write blog posts about their books, telling essentially everything about their writing process – the central idea, what triggered them to write, and the message they're attempting to convey. Authors are also encouraged to describe their experiences during the process of writing and publishing process. And, of course, everyone wants to know more about the writers themselves.

Shirazi describes this as "a sort of virtual book tour into a new market and fun." Authors wishing to participate may send their posts (and related images) to sajshirazi@gmail.com.

I will be submitting my entry soon. What, if any, are the limitations? I write about adult themes and situations.

Xavier: Write to Shirazi directly at sajshirazi@gmail.com
He'll tell what criteria he has, if any. Good luck to you.

Nikki! I've been thinking about you, girl! How nice of you to stop by. I'll shoot you an email message to see how you (and your book) are doing. I trust all is well with you and yours.
