Spotlight

Every Wednesday it is my pleasure to bring to you the goings-on of other bloggers – writers, artists, crazy people with their own fabulous take on the world.

I’m not a reblogger – at least, not a reliable one – and it’s always been fun for me to catalogue a list of interesting tidbits, fanciful tales, and stories of interest – fact or fiction – for my readers. Of course, a few years into the blogging game, with a book out, another 5 in various stages of creation and editing, not to mention a child who insists on getting older, and my time has withered away to nothing. So now, instead of being a curator of the interesting, I want to be a mouthpiece for it – and I need your help.

While I am trying to generate fans, I’m aware that most of my readers are artists themselves, and all of them have something to say – something they want others to read and I want to help them do it, every Wednesday until I no longer have material.

What a Spotlight Means

It means shining a light on creative types – artists of all shapes and sizes. All and sundry are welcome – that is, if you write, paint, draw, document, picture, film, chronicle, pixelize, satirize, or in any other way create, you are welcome. You do not need to be selling anything to participate. Guests posts and interviews don’t need product to be successful, they just need you and your wonderful ideas.

And those wonderful ideas can be:

  • Press Releases: these include cover reveals and book launches – or any other type of launch.
  • Guest post – topic, your passion. It can be as detailed or as simple as you like. And no, I won’t make you talk with the Druid – of course I won’t stop you either!
  • Interviews. Thanks to an earlier interview series I have questions that I’m told are interesting and different. Of course, for this one, you are going to have to talk to the Druid, because he’s the one asking the questions. Don’t worry, I’ll make him behave. Sort of. (Download an example of questions used for writers: https://dadialogues.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/interview-questions-writers.pdf.)
  • Anything else – if you have the material, and it fits into my guidelines, then I’m happy to post.

The Dirty Details

I do not make a distinction between traditional or indie-fueled content. All I care about is quality work. If it is error free, compelling, something you’re proud of, and has at least one graphic, then it’s good for me.*

Posts will go live every Wednesday until further notice, and are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. If there is a particular time-frame you’d like a spotlight presented, let me know now so I can schedule accordingly.

Art and creativity are subjective and I reserve the right to reject any posts that I feel are not right for this blog. This includes, but is not limited to, posts/promotions of an extreme violent or sexual nature. That’s just not my audience.

*Posts must be edited before submission. Posts with grammar, spelling and syntax errors will be sent back for revision. I will not post anything riddled with errors unless said errors are central to the promotion.
