  1. Choose at least 10 questions from the list below and email me your answers at yecheilyah(at)yecheilyahysrayl(dot)com) with your social media handles, photos, book covers, a brief bio, and a link to your website or blog. When emailing me about your interview, please put Introduce Yourself Author Interview in the subject line.

 

  1. Please attach your questions in a Word document and attach images separately.

 

  1. Once I receive your email, I will respond in 3-5 business days. If I have any follow-up questions, I will ask you before setting a date for your feature.

 

  1. The questions are below. They are not in any particular order. Start with question 30 or question one—your choice. The questions include a wide range of subjects, so make it a fun mix.

When answering the questions, please post the question first and then your answer. Example:

What is your name and where are you from?

My name is Yecheilyah and I am from Chicago, now living in Georgia.

NOTE: If you are visually/hearing impaired, please be sure you have a way to attach your book cover images as a separate attachment. I will not copy the cover from Word / PDF documents.

Be as thorough as you can! One sentence answers and yes and no responses don’t help us get to know you. This is your chance to show off your writing. Explain fully and dig deep. The spotlight is on, so shine!

About.

Founded in 2016, Introduce Yourself is a promotional opportunity for new and established authors. It is an interview with questions tailored to help readers better understand the author.

The name of this feature was inspired by a song introduced in a children’s bible study class I helped coordinate. The children had to sing the song and introduce themselves. I mean these interviews to “break the ice” between author and reader in the same spirit. I have hosted this segment for years now, and I hope to introduce more authors to allow readers to learn more about them and their work. They say teamwork makes the dream work, and I hope to do my part to introduce more authors and help make their dreams come true.

We cannot ignore it. We will most likely buy books from people we know, like, and trust. We know who they are and what they stand for, and we trust them to deliver. By learning more about YOU, the author, people become more interested in your work, such as your writing and books.
