2. Our Author Interview Series

A Journey from Blogger to AuthorThere's no better way to help other authors in their indie author journey, than leading by example, so I've started a new Non-Fiction Author Interview series "A Journey from Blogger to Author" where I pose the same questions to indie authors about their self-publishing journey.

If you're a non-fiction author and would like to share your self-publishing experiences and expertise, please send me an email.

Here's the questions:

  • How would you describe the type of books/genre you write?
  • What motivated you to start writing?
  • Tell us the journey you went on to get your books published (e.g. direct on your website, self-published, assisted-publishing, traditional publisher)
  • What publishing elements do you most enjoy and most like to avoid, and why? (e.g. design, marketing, formatting etc.)
  • With the hindsight of being a published author, anything you would have done differently?
  • What tips or advice would you give an aspiring indie author who is looking to self-publish?
  • What marketing or promotional tools or techniques do you use to reach your readers?
  • What impact do you want your books to have on your readers?
  • What is your latest book about?
  • What’s next on your writing journey?

Your insights and knowledge could help another indie author achieve their goal of self-publishing, and it's that collaborative spirit that being an Indie is all about.

Please also include:

  • A bio picture and short bio, that includes your website and social network URLs.
  • At least 3 other images (either of books, other images or you, or images related to the content of your books or blogging brand). Travel images work great, and to be honest the more the merrier (up to 8-10 is ideal). Please include an image description. I'm also happy to source relevant images from your website if you'd prefer that approach.

3. Our Nomadic Times Column

Nomadic Times Weekly Travel Column from Birds of a Feather PressAs many travel writers and bloggers are location independent or class themselves as digital nomads, we've started a regular Nomadic Times column which is written by travel writers with a nomadic spirit. This column is intended to inspire and help people just like you to achieve location independence and overcome the challenges of being a digital nomad.

We prefer posts that draw on personal details and experience.

  • Posts must be original and must not have appeared elsewhere.
  • There's no payment for guest articles.
  • Your article will be promoted across my extensive social networks.
  • We will include your byline at the bottom of the article, with a brief bio and one link to your author website or book or product landing page, as well as links to your social networks.
  • Your article should include a featured image and at least 2 additional images (but the more the merrier, because this makes your article easier to pin)

It's alright to showcase your books or products in the guest article, as long as you abide by the following guidelines:

The Article is Where you GIVE. The byline is where you TAKE.
