Sharing The Love

Blog Sharing Ts & Cs

  • Everything in your blog article itself should be rated no higher than PG. However, your books can be any level of heat (we all know I like an erotic story as much as a sweet one).
  • I welcome authors who write all types of relationships. This is an LGBTQIA+ friendly space.
  • Please pick 3-5 of the below questions and give a short answer to each. Choose whatever you wish, but do answer at least one from the writing category. Include the questions with your answers.
  • Send your answers and media kit – complete with author profile pic and book cover as separate images- to anverebes@outlook.com with subject line containing your post date
