organized-workspace-e1468477743594Marketing is a daunting task! At Inspired Prompt, we especially love to help authors promote their books, with an emphasis on their latest releases.

We offer our 3 Questions Wednesday interview on a first-come, first-serve basis. Interview space is limited, so please consult us well in advance of your release date. You’ll find the interview questions and guidelines below. Please read, then fill out the “Contact Us” tab, stating your request. We’ll do our best to get you on our schedule as close to your release date as possible. If your book is already in publication, we’ll schedule it first available.

For interviews, we’ll need the answers to the three questions of your choice below, along with the following items: a headshot, short bio with links (where readers can find you), book blurb, and cover art. We ask that you consider some type of giveaway for our 3 Questions Wednesday interview: a book, gift card, or other prize. If you’re giving a book, let us know if it’s Kindle, PDF, or print.

  2. What was the best money you ever spent as a writer concerning craft? How about marketing?
  3. If you could give a novice writer one piece of advice, what would it be?
  4. Who is your favorite fictional hero or heroine? Villain?
  5. Describe your writing space.
  6. Give a shout out to a writer friend and your favorite book they’ve written.
