Ognian Georgiev (ognian_georgiev) | 178 comments description
I am always enjoying learning something more about self-publishing authors like me. During the process of creating the English version of The white prisoner: Galabin Boevski's secret storyI read a lot about all the tricks to make a good final product. Most of the info I gathered from author’s blogs. So I think there is always sense to browse and check out my colleagues personal web spaces.

This is why I will start an interview host of fellow authors in my personal blog at goodreads: Priority will be given to writers of the following themes: Non-fiction, Sports, History, Crime, Thrillers, Fantasy and Travel. My primary idea was to host the interviews on my blog at wordpress, but my account was suspended after the first one. I am still waiting for the reasons, but probably, because i put too much links to Amazon books of my first guest.

If you want to join, please go to my blog write below the post your name, give me a link to your amazon book page and left me your e-mail. I will contact you with questions.

Honestly, one of the reason for starting such a section in the blog is to meet some special people. The co-author of “Saving Our Pennys” is one of them. Why? The answers are below:
