Questionnaire for Interview
on Book Readers
(http://bookread-mumswritings.blogspot.com/)

Thanks very much for agreeing to share your thoughts with us!

First, though… to clarify… By answering and returning this questionnaire you…

1.) agree to hold us, (the creators of the BookRead website), harmless and blameless for any and all contact and/or correspondence, (including sales or lack thereof for your products or services), that is a direct or indirect result of your answers appearing on the BookRead site.
2.) certify that the information you provide is true and accurate. This includes links to other content on websites and/or other avenues of promotion.
3.) certify that the book, product or service you are promoting is your work, and hold us harmless and blameless for any and all contact and/or correspondence, (including sales or lack thereof for your products or services), that is a direct or indirect result of your answers appearing on the BookRead site.

4.) submit your answers, links, etc. freely and without expectation of compensation or payment in any form.
We publish content on our website at our sole discretion. Content may be edited. We make no promise as to the length or duration of time your interview will be posted to our site. We may remove any or all files at any time.
It has to be that way. That being said, we promise to…

1.) publish your answers to our questions accurately.
2.) post content you provide us, (images, links, etc), as we see fit. We may crop, re-size or disregard any files you send us at our discretion.
3.) make no claim to boost your sales, bring you customers or have any effect on you or your business in any way.
VIDEO
You can make your own video of you answering your favorite three questions from our questionnaire. It doesn’t have to be super slick or over-produced. It may also be your book trailer if you prefer.
DON’T SEND US VIDEO FILES. THEY WILL BE DELETED.

Post your video to one of the common video hosting sites, (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), and send us the link.
Keep your videos under three minutes. We’ll review it, and post it along with your written answers at our discretion.
You don’t have to make a video. Questionnaires alone will receive the same consideration as questionnaires that come with links to video.  It’s up to you.
 
DON’T SEND US VIDEO FILES. THEY WILL BE DELETED.

You don’t have to answer every question. If a better question comes to mind, feel free to include it. However, remember all content provided is used at the sole discretion of Book Readers.  Make sure you fill out the first section, though, so we know who you are, what you do and why people should to read your work(s).  Once completed e-mail your form to: dbjro333@yahoo.com
