Thank you for wanting a spot on my blog (http://deannajewel.blogspot.com). I'm going to leave the choice of questions asked by me - up to you. Rather than me asking you questions about why, what or how you write, I think they would be better answered if the questions came from you. I've started you with a few questions, but I'd like 10 or so questions and answers from you to give the readers a good idea about who you are and why you write what you do. Also, then each interview will be different from the others I do as the questions won't be the same.
You will get more clicks and visits to the post if you offer a contest: gift card, e-book, signed paperback, etc. You can send me a link to YOUR Rafflecopter contest or Contact Form or I can set one up for you. Please let me know what you’re doing.
Let's start off with a few standard questions and you go from there. I look forward to reading your questions and answers and will post them to my blog. I’ve been leaving the interviews up a week, which is working well and gives the readers a few days to post comments.
I can't wait to introduce you to my readers!! Thank you so much! Be sure to get the word out in your newsletters, too.

Good luck with more questions. Think of things that you would like our readers to know about your book or your characters or you. Again, thank you so much for helping me out with this. I can't wait to get your interview! Also – many authors run a contest with a giveaway. The giveaway item is up to you should you decide to run a contest and pick one of the commenters. Just let me know you want to run the contest so I include it in the interview at the end.
OR - if you'd rather do a character interview from your book or write up your own info to share with the reader, feel free to send me that instead.
Again, what I need (if you’ve not already sent them to me):
- author photo if you have one
- book cover jpg
- completed interview
- contest giveaway, yes or no, and what (e-book or print or gift card)
- virtual location setting, perhaps from one of your books: on a ship, at a crime scene, in a cemetery, in a garden, etc. because I love to set the interview in a location your readers will remember!
Save this form to your computer and email the completed questionnaire to: Deanna@deannajewel.com
Thank you again!
