#RLFblog author interviews

Come interview on RLF

You're invited to be a guest on Romance Lives Forever. On this page you'll find author interviews and other information. Here's what to send and where send it.

  • You will need a cover no smaller than 200x300 pixels (I will resize if larger), your author bio, book blurb, buy links for the book, and links to your social media. All that goes into one of the interview formats below (to keep formatting the same throughout the blog).
  • Email everything to kayelle.allen @ (no spaces).
  • Be sure to include the cover as an attachment, not embedded in the document or email.
  • No images other than the cover are accepted (with the exception of the Fiction Furbaby and Do It Write interviews).

Here's What to Do


Below are links to the interviews in rtf format, readable by any word processor.

  • Choose the interview you want, and then click the title to download the document. The interview opens and downloads in a new window.
  • If you use Google docs, upload to your drive and open in Google docs. When finished, download it and email me the form. Do not share the folder or document.
  • All interviews require a book cover, blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the author, and include an opportunity to build your email list.
  • The purpose of these posts is to make readers aware of your book, and to help you get sales. You'll find full instructions inside each document. 
  • If you prefer to write an article, that's great. Download the cover love form at the end of this list and include it with your post.
  • PLEASE keep the formatting as it is in the document you downloadTo keep RLF's smooth look, I use one font only. Don't substitute fonts or add colors and other formats. I will have to strip out everything and start from scratch, and that takes time better spent writing. Like you, I'm a writer. I understand how important exposure is. You can help me get your books in front of people by leaving the formatting as it is.
  • These questions are written for he/she characters. Please feel free to change pronouns to fit your characters.

Thank you!

Author Interviews SEO

Yoast SEO

RLF uses the powerful Yoast SEO to add helpful search info to your interview. This is a terrific advantage for you. You get to decide what Google and other search engines use to find your books, your interview, and you.

To illustrate, I've used a Facebook share from a post about one of Brenda Sparks' books. Brenda is the Blogger of the Year two years running.

The title at the top is the subject of the blog post.

The bold info in the middle is the SEO title.

The words in the box make up the SEO description.
