Thinking About Doing Some Guest Posts: My Path To Publication

I have started to really get into doing interviews on various blogs.  Sometimes I do them in conjunction with a review, which is great, and sometimes I do them along with a giveaway.  Most times the blog host sends me the questions in advance and I answer them and email back my responses and happily offer to give away a copy of my book as well.  Normally, the questions run around the same theme: how did I get published?

I think that is the question most of us are interested in hearing the answer to, and I am no exception.  I have met some truly fascinating people here and because I am basically lazy in nature (LOL), I have decided that I want to start interviewing some of these astonishing people myself.  I don't know if anyone will even care to come on over here to Samanthaland, because, let's be honest, there isn't a lot going on.  I don't have a splashy, interactive page, there aren't any bells and whistles here.  I don't even have any bitchin' graphics. But, I am super, SUPER interested in their stories.  I think you all might be too.

So, I am going to bite the bullet and ask some authors whose works I really respect if I can pick their brain on this one topic.  I don't care what their favorite food is, or where they went to school.  I want to talk about the writing process and if they are game, I'm going to be so excited.  If not, I'll shelve the idea.  And continue talking about my literary pursuits and, occasionally, things that piss me off.  No worries.  LOTS of things on that particular list.  So check back.  We'll see if this thing flies.
