As the 2012 bloggers, you have agreed to do 30 spotlights over the next year. That is 10 NY published authors and 20 Small press authors.

We will have the full list of authors available soon... so keep checking back. What we would like from you is this:

From each list, (different threads) please pick your choices and let us know who they are. Then you will have your own thread for you to post your spotlights in there for us to keep it organized. This way everyone (you and us) are held accountable.

thank you guys so much!

I've got most of my spots filled, just waiting for the remaining spots to be filled and I'll be ready to go!

Please remember to fill out the form for each spotlight!

https://spreadsheets0.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHFqS0dxTXBXcWVsTWxYZW03eVB0clE6MQ

This will help us promote your spotlights outside the forum too. Smile

The link doesn't show up- could you repost it?

Also, is there a format the spotlights are supposed to follow or can we come up with our own?

Here's the link in plain text so that you can copy/paste:

https://spreadsheets0.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHFqS0dxTXBXcWVsTWxYZW03eVB0clE6MQ

You can use whatever format works best for your site (e.g. guest post, interview, etc...)

We DO have "featured author" graphics for you to include in spotlights too - we'll be making those available shortly.

Would it be ok to go ahead and start posting and add the graphic once it becomes available?

Question: I chose my 10 NY authors, but did not contact them first. Was I supposed to do that first? Also, is there a central spot with author contact info or do we just hunt them down Shocked and contact them via their author websites?

Last thing - both places you post the link to the form above, my screen reads "[Only admins are allowed to see this link]" Am I doing something wrong?

Sorry for so many questions, I've never done anything like this before...Thanks!!

Not sure about the link... GThats all PJ.

We decided to let the bloggers contact the authors personally (via their own contacts or website forms) because Im not in the habit of just giving email addresses away you know?

Also, it will ensure that you get a good relationship with said authors in order to work with them better. AAD's blogger program is really about bloggers making connections with authors they might not have read or approached otherwise...

Okay, I didn't think about it that way, that makes sense Smile

Does it matter if we contact them beforehand or not? I wanted to pick my authors (I did) then contact them over the next few weeks and set up dates then. Of course, I might be doing it backwards scratch

I'm ready to go on my first spotlight post. I can send you the form now with the post date in the comment section or wait until the day it goes up (10/11). Which would you prefer?

Hmm, I'm very sorry the link is not working - it looks like Red Hot Books was able to use the form. Also, I've had others test this link.

I'm going to try one more time and then if that doesn't work, pls would you PM me with your preferred email address and I'll try sending you the link via email?

Here we go: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHFqS0dxTXBXcWVsTWxYZW03eVB0clE6MQ

I still had the link from the original email. The links you've posted here aren't visible to me either, but I sent her my link in a Private Message. So she has it now.

Thank you so much - I'm not sure why they're not showing up as visible for you all. I'll try to follow up and resend to all Bloggers via email. Im very sorry for the mix up.

I am still very confused as to what we need to do for the Author Spotlights. Other than signing up on the forum for the authors, is there a specified format? Can it be anything of our choosing (a review, a guest post, etc)? Do we have to contact the author before we do the post? (For example, can I run a review of an author's book and call that a spotlight?) You mentioned that there are graphics - where can I find these?

Thank you for any help.

-Jen

Anything you want. but the idea is to get YOU, the blogger to interact with THEM, the author, and to have you spotlight authors you arent really familiar with... so its up to you.

Remember, AAD is about connecting with authors over books... it works best when you find new authors you dont know thaty are attending to work with... they will appreciate it, and you will find new authors to love.

I ran my first AAD Spotlight today (is there a twitter tag? I'm using #AADNOLA), and I filled out the form/spreadsheet...

Is there a way we can see the spreadsheet of AAD Spotlights so we can check out our fellow bloggers' Spotlights? I would love to see what everyone else is going.

Thanks!
