Since it started 3 years ago This is Writing has hosted over 200 authors for interviews, book reviews, guest post placements and book excerpts spots.
Our founder, Scott Mullins, started the site as his own small part of the web as he tried to figure out how he could make his living as an author. As the site developed he had more and more authors coming to him looking for a space to promote their work. Other book marketing and promotion services out there were either too expensive or wouldn’t accept new authors.
Scott found that indie and self-published authors especially those just starting out and still learning the ropes of what it takes to become a successful author didn’t have a marketing budget to promote their work. Scott decided to launch his Free Book Marketing Services as a way of supporting the writing community.
As the site grew, he found that readers came to the site to find new writers to fill that book shaped hole in their lives. They were looking for book recommendations and were willing to take a chance on authors they had never heard of before.
