6 WOW Wednesday Posts and New Feature Interviews to Promote Your Work

I've just now gotten home from Miami. It is 12:50 am,and I still have to decorate for my daughter's birthday--plus tomorrow/today is going to be a whirlwind. So. The longer post I was going to do is just going to have to wait.

For today, what I need to tell you is that our WOW Wednesday posts are filled into November. If you have some writerly good news to share, are a published or agented writer with an AHA moment or great advice to share with other writers, or you have a book coming out and you want to do a post in November or thereafter, our invitation to do a WOW Wednesday stands. Just let me know.

But since we are filled up so far in advance, we want to go ahead and bring back author interviews that run the week a book comes out. If you have a book releasing and would like to schedule an interview and book blurb to appear on Adventures in Young Adult and Children's Publishing, we would love to feature you the week you release. To set it up, just answer the following questions and email the interview to kidlit (at) writeedge dot com at least one week in advance.

Interview Questions to Answer

Book blurb plus your two to three sentence bio.
What inspired you to write this book?
What is your favorite thing about the book/in the book?
How long did you work on it?

Optional Questions
(Answer any, all, or none of these at your discretion.)

How was your journey to publication? Long, short, how many rejections?
What most made the difference to you in getting from aspiring writer to published author?
What advice would you most like to pass along to other writers?
What has surprised you most about becoming a published author?
What are your favorite books on writing craft?
What are your favorite books to read for pleasure?
What new projects are you working on and when can we look to see them on the shelves?

Happy writing!

  1. Lots of great ideas for questions to ask here. Thanks so much for taking the time to post, despite your exhaustion! :)

  2. For those getting ready to publish, those are probably questions they'd want to make note of since they might get asked those questions quite a bit.

  3. I love it when you have these interview questions for the new book releases. :D

  4. Wow! You're already back from the FL conference? Looking forward to hearing how it went. : )

  5. That's awesome you're all booked for Wednesdays. And I loved the interview questions for Monday releases too.

  6. In my next life, I am going to be as organized as you.


Tell us what you think. We'd love to hear from you! :)
