SPFBO 6

#SPFBO6, this year’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off created by fantasy author Mark Lawrence, will open for submissions on May 23rd.  300 self-published fantasy authors will enter their books, which will be given to one of 10 judges, or teams of judges.  Each judge will choose one book to compete in the final round…where the winner will be determined.  There can be only one!  To find out more, please see Mark Lawrence’s website.

To help explain this process (and because I like making videos) here’s a quick summary.

I’ll be interviewing some of the authors in this year’s contest.  The focus of these interviews will be on the challenges of self-publishing, how the fantasy genre has changed (and stayed the same) in the past decade, and what each of us looks for in a story.

The interviews will be posted separately along with a link to the author’s submitted book on Amazon. Best of luck to all the contestants!
