This blog will be for author interviews with Nikki Leigh. This will include discussion about book creation, writing inspirations, book promotion and much more. Pull up a chair and see what we can learn from each other. Authors that I host on virtual book tours will be hosted here and I'll be looking for other special authors to feature on this site. What's interesting about your book and why would I like to feature you on this site? Convince me to talk with you :)

To participate - copy these questions into a new file and answer each question, then return the file to me at There are some question which are obviously for fiction - non fiction authors can skip those or delete them. If you feel a question does apply, let me know. But, the more information you provide, the more potential readers will learn about you and your book.

Tell us the book title and your author name.

What inspired the book?

What makes this book special to you?

What makes this a book that other people MUST read and WHY?

What people NEED to read this book and WHY?

What sparks your creativity? Any tips to help others spark their own creativity?

What has been the biggest stumbling block in your writing? Can you share some tips to help others get past similar problems?

What do you think motivates people to become authors? What motivated you to get into this unusual industry?

Tell me about the most unusual things you have done to promote any books?

FICTION - If there is a setting, tell us how you decided on that setting and what you did to create a complete and vivid setting for your readers?

FICTION - What inspires you about the hero or heroine in your book? What makes them memorable for the reader? What motivates the hero and/or heroine? You can include information about both if you want.

FICTION - Is there a villain or something that causes friction in your story? Tell us about what or who it is and how that contributes to the story. Any details about conflict and friction is good information to know.

NON FICTION - Why are you the BEST person to write this book? What in your background or in your research makes you qualified to do justice to this topic?

NON FICTION - If a potential reader thinks that your book wouldn't interest them, what would you say to convince them to buy? I'm thinking something better than "Its the greatest book ever." Give me something more specific :)

NON FICTION - Why does the topic of your book interest you? Why would it interest potential readers? Give us a hook to reel in new readers.

NON FICTION Is there a way to tie your book topic to current events? If so, tell us about how you could do that. I have a blog to feature information and examples about tying books into current events that might be a good place for you to promote your book.

If there's anything else you would like to share, this is the time and place.

Thank you for visiting with me and in closing, give us your website address and a link to order your book.
