Today, I’d like to share with you a new idea I’ve had regarding Author/Blogger/Writer Spotlights. I’ve decided to blast this out on a Monday using the hashtag #MondayBlogs Bad RedHead Media – Monday Blogs – Why You Should Be Participating– I hope this is okay Rachel, @BadRedheadMedia (I’m not promoting my own book!)
I shall be offering the opportunity to guest post on M J Mallon – Kyrosmagica blog with a special theme that means so much to me – Inspiration.
I just love this quote by Audrey Hepburn:
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!
Authors will be encouraged to write a short post considering these prompts.
- What inspires you to write? This should be personal to you, but might include suggestions such as: a walk in nature, overheard conversations, a new job, a travelling adventure, a trip abroad, meeting a new friend, or an old flame, art, music, books you’ve read….. The list is inexhaustible! A strange inexplicable desire to write. Witnessing an altercation or an event, etc, etc….. I’d love to hear your experiences!
- Inspiration to keep trying and improving even when the writing journey gets tough.
- How to overcome writer’s block by focusing on refreshing new inspirational ideas.
- Favourite inspirational quotes that you refer to and sites such as Brainy Quote that you find inspiring.
- Authors and blogging friends that have your back and encourage you to keep on writing. They can be inspiring to.
- Overcoming obstacles through writing and creativity – photography, art, and music as therapy.
The piece should be in the region of 500 – 1,250 words and can include any or all of the above prompt ideas. I shall need accompanying promotional materials – author bio and cover reveals, a short summary of your book/s, excerpts, links to your blog and book.
The lovely Heena Rathore will be joining in soon. She will be doing an author spotlight, on the theme inspiration with details of her Psychological Thriller Deceived, so keep a look out for that.
Alternatively, if you’d like to follow the traditional format of interview questions, or a simpler author spotlight/cover reveal I’m happy to do that to. I’m an easy going kind of gal! Do get in touch if you’re interested.
Would you like to guest post? Leave a comment below, or email me for more details: email@example.com

Bravo on your new idea!
Thank you so much. Have a lovely Monday. 🙂
Same to you Marie!
Thanks, everyone’s calling me Marie! must be auto-correct. Marje
Oh! Sorry! I got it now – Marje. Lovely name but the first time I hear it. Curious to know more about this name.
It is short for Marjorie, derived from Margaret, meaning Pearl! 🙂
Great idea with a theme that is so important to us all ☺
Would you consider guest posts from would-be authors as well as published ones? If so then I would love to contribute.
Best of luck with the project!
Yes of course Adam would love it if you’d contribute. Thanks for your good luck wishes. Do send me your contribution. All the best Marje. 🙂
Awesome Marje. I’m a little piled up at the moment, but would love to hop on when I can. I’ll PM you when I’m there. Till then I’m eager to read! 🙂 xx
That’s great Debby. Look forward to it. 🙂
Wonderful idea, Marje! I’m quite busy at the moment but that’s not to say I won’t take you up on the offer in the future 🙂 🙂
That would be awesome Christy. Do give it a whirl. 🙂 x
Sounds like fun, Marje. Great topic!
Way to go, Marje! There will be so much to learn from these posts by all the different authors and writers. It’s always inspiring to know what inspired others and this idea is very innovative. I’ll be keeping an eye out for these posts here.
And thanks a lot for hosting me. It’s an honor for me and I’m so excited to write for you and your lovely web-home 🙂
Oh, BTW your website looks amazing! I love the theme and the name of this one. Sorry, it took me so long to drop by and check this.
All the very best and lots of love! <3
Hi Heena, yes indeed there will be so much to learn. Looking forward to discovering what my guests will come up with. It shall be such a pleasure hosting you Heena. Thank you for being so kind about my new web home. It’s fairly new, perhaps not perfect yet, but getting there. All the best, much love Marje xx
Hi Marje, this sounds like a terrific idea for a series of guest posts. I would love to write a post on how my children and my artwork inspire me to write. If an article sprinkled with fondant figures and cakes would fit with your thoughts, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wow that sounds terrific Robbie, will email you. 🙂
This is great! I’d love to do it. Thank you Marje!
That’s great Vashti, send me your post whenever you are ready. Would love to have you as a featured author on my blog. 🙂 xx
Great idea. I’m in. E-mail to follow 🙂
Ok, great. 🙂
