    Alica, I never read anything about you wanting interviews and I read all your blogs. I must have missed something??? I’d love to host you. Get in touch with me.

      Most of them have been at the bottom of the post and more offers to have people on my blog then me on theirs. BUT I would LOVE to be interviewed by you, and return the favor. I’ll email you!

    You make such a good point. Since I’m not published yet, I immediately assume I’m not a candidate for an interview, and I still believe that to some extent. But then I think, hey, I’m not alone in writing, polishing and ‘actively planning’ to publish my first book. I’d be thrilled to learn more about other writers like me who aren’t published yet, but will be. If I get to know them now … I’ll be in the front of the line to buy their book the moment it’s available.

    Thanks for giving me this perspective. I’ll be open to this opportunity and I hope to see more interviews w/ writers in the trenches navigating this turbulent publishing gig. 🙂

    Alica, I’m with Ginger. I don’t think I qualify (and I’m stil a bit shy), but I’m eager to learn more about other writers.
    Your interview process sounds great!
    (btw: finally I was able to log in and comment with my twitter account… sorry for the absence).

      No worries commenting can be far to challenging some days. don’t stress or push yourself, just remember that both people gain from having interviews ad guests posts and when you’re ready go for it!

    I feel the same as Ginger. I don’t know why anyone would want to read an interview of me. I’m not published. But, I think Ginger would make a great interview. I’d love to pick her brain about exercising and healthy eating. And as someone who is new to blogging, the idea of doing guest posts or interviews is a little too scary for me. Maybe once I’ve been doing it for awhile. But for now, it’s baby steps for me.

      Don’t rush yourself- just know guest posts and interviews help both parties 🙂

      Aw, thanks, Emma! I’m going to do an interview. Now you’re required to read it and pretend I’m very interesting. Haha! Oh, and you can pick my brain about fitness/nutrition stuff any time. If something I saw helps someone, I’m happy! 🙂

      Alicia–got the questions. I’m excited!

    Being so new to this blogging thing, I didn’t catch on when you were setting up your virtual book tour. If you would like to pimp your book at my stop you’re more than welcome! I’d love to hear more about you and your book. You can DM me and we can talk.

      Thanks Debra! I’d love to stop by your blog. And it wasn’t a hard core push for a blog tour so it was easy to miss.

    Alica, you really do know how to put yourself out there. You go girl!

    I’m glad that Ginger is going to do a guest spot with you. I too would like to know more about her. Very cool. See, this opened people up. And I did see your post over at Colin Falconer’s site. Very nice post Alica! I really enjoyed it.

    Take care and keep up the great work. We need you to pump us up! We’re all a little shy. 🙂

      Thanks Karen, I understand being shy, and I’m happy to be a cheerleader. 🙂 I hope when you’re ready to do guests posts you remember that it helps everyone involved.
