Auction #1: Your Take 8 Interview on Writer Unboxed

Profile your book–or even your business or blog–with a Take 8 Q&A.

Writer Unboxed’s Take 5’s are our popular Q&As that get at the heart of an author’s writing process, inspirations, and storytelling. We want to offer the same opportunity to the winning bidder. To make the opportunity even more enticing, we’ll offer our first-ever Take 8 interview. EIGHT incisive questions designed to let readers know everything they need to know about your book–and/OR your blog or business.

[pullquote]We’d even be open to a little spin here: you and friend bid on this together, and interview one another here at WU.[/pullquote]

Winning bidder’s interview will go live within the calendar year, on a mutually agreeable date.

Why do we think you can gain attention on our site?

About [3]

Writer Unboxed began as a collaboration between Therese Walsh [4] and Kathleen Bolton [5] in 2006. Since then the site has grown to include ~50 regular contributors--including bestselling authors and industry leaders--and frequent guests. In 2014, the first Writer Unboxed UnConference (part UNtraditional conference, part intensive craft event, part networking affair) [6] was held in Salem, MA. Learn more about our 2019 event, ESCAPE TO WuNDERLAND, on Eventbrite. [7] In 2016, the Writer Unboxed team published a book with Writer's Digest. AUTHOR IN PROGRESS: A No-Holds-Barred Guide to What It Really Takes to Get Published [8] has been well-received by readers who seek help in overcoming the hurdles faced at every step of the novel-writing process--from setting goals, researching, and drafting to giving and receiving critiques, polishing prose, and seeking publication. James Scott Bell has said of the guide, "Nourishment for the writer's soul and motivation for the writer's heart." You can follow Writer Unboxed on Twitter [9], and join our thriving Facebook community [10].
