TNBBC Author Series


In lieu of a review, I'm happy to offer small press and self published authors an opportunity to provide original, unique content to one of our author features/series below. 

Email me at if you are interested in participating, and we can discuss specifics. All content must include an author photo, bio, and jpg of the cover at a minimum. Hyperlinks to author, publisher, and book pages are welcome. 

Anything you send can be re-posted elsewhere once it’s been up on this site for 24 hours. We just ask to be given first publishing credits for it.


The 40 But 10 Interview series - I send you a list of 40 interview questions. You narrow it down to the 10 you most want to answer -

Audio Series - record yourself reading an excerpt from your book and send me the mp3 -


 Indie Spotlight - open topic guest post, generic, anything related to your book, influences, publishing, readings, whatever -


 Bathroom Reading - yes, I do have a series where I ask writers to tell us what they read in the bathroom -


Books and Booze (we have fun seasonal themes for these too!) – make up a drink for your book and send the photo and recipe, or pair existing drinks with your characters, settings, etc.


 Where Writers Write – Photos with essay or video of where you write, and why you write there -


Indie Ink Runs Deep – this is open to publishing staff, as well as authors! - photo of your tattoos (they don’t have to be lit related) and the story behind them -


Eat Like an Author – where you write about what you’re eating and why, OR cook up a featured dish from your book… photos welcome, as are recipes.


Writers Recommend – authors recommend their favorite  book or the book that was most influential to them


The Page 69 Test – we run an excerpt of page 69 from your book and you talk about whether it’s a good sampling of the overall storyline or not.


My Top Five – create a listicle of your top five of something. Books, music, food, trends, writing spaces, etc. Try to link to, or attach photos for, whatever they are whenever possible. For example - if it’s music, link to the songs; if it’s books, link to where they can be purchased:

So Close Yet So Far – Do you have a cool 6 degrees of separation story? Or a near-miss or close call brush with a celebrity/author/musician/personal fame? We want to hear about it if you do. Bonus points if you have a photo of it to share -


Retired series: 

Would You Rather – a series of the same 20 questions for everyone who participates, where you must choose one of two bookish scenarios:
