Indie Authors can add their name to the “lottery” and up to three authors will be chosen per issue. (If they added their name, they don’t have to add it again). If selected, the author will need to fill out the interview questions, provide an author bio (written in third person), a list of their book titles, awards, and a photo to put with the article.
Authors can add their book titles to the New Releases (has to be this calendar year) and they can be released or will be released this year. The cost is $10 per title, a cover of the book is required, where it can be purchased, and a blurb less than 500 words.
Authors that have had their books recently reviewed by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews, will have their review posted in the next upcoming issue of the magazine. Authors do not have to sign up for this as it will happen automatically.
Authors will be informed about the issue where their review will be posted.
