Interview – Novel Writing Festival

I am excited to share that I was approached to do an online interview with Matthew Toffolo of Novel Writing Festival, a website that offers a very ‘novel’ way for self published writers to promote their work. The series of questions ranged from what the themes and tone of my novels are, to my favourite movie, to who I would most like to have dinner with. It’s a brief and lighthearted way of getting to know the person behind the books and what motivates us to write.

Trying to get the message out about my novels and why someone should buy mine over someone else’s is not an easy task. The very term ‘self-published’ means exactly that – there is no well-established publishing house behind me advertising my books all over the world, organising book signings or special events on the release of a novel. Thus it’s great to have people who love books enough to offer a way of getting the word out without cost to the author.

Novel Writing Festival do offer several other platforms through which to promote books, so its definitely worth checking them out! You can also find them on Twitter at @NovelFest
