Author Services


At FLOURISH & BLOG we understand just what it means to be an indie author, and usually, that means working within a limited budget. We provide a wide variety of professional and affordable services simply for that reason. This is for indie, by indie. You might ask why charge for things like author interviews and book reviews? Walt Disney said it best. We're not charging because we want to make money off of you to shove into our pockets. Everything we charge goes back into the site to make it bigger and better so we can reach a wider audience.

***We are currently looking for authors to interview for our grand relaunch this January. If you are interested, please email us at info.flourishandblog@gmail.com
