FAQs

Ekaterina Botziou FAQBelow I have tried to answer every question I have ever been asked since launching my blog (I have even included the strange ones) but if you have a query that has not been answered please do not hesitate to contact me.

How can I contact you?

For any queries or if you just want to say hello you can either contact me here or email me directly at ekaterinabotziou@hotmail.com 🙂

How can I work with you?

Please check out my contact/work with me page.

Why/when did you start your blog?

I started my blog in 2012 just after I got married. Months spent planning (or rather, being subjected to other people’s plans) for my big fat Greek wedding, had left me with more than a few frustrating yet hilarious tales and I just had to get them off my chest. I did a bit of research, signed up with WordPress, and then blindly started building the world that I would retreat to in moments of literary madness. It took a while to get the hang of things, but soon there was no stopping me! I now use my blog as a way of promoting my work as well as the work of others and offering educational and writing resources to all. 

Do you get sent products/samples to advertise?

From time to time yes, if so I will always include a disclaimer at the bottom of the post/video.

If I send you product samples will you write a blog post/review on them? 

I am more than happy to discuss products on my blog that fit in with my general theme. However, I may not be able to commit to a particular time frame and will only give my absolute honest opinion to my readers about any product. 

Where can I buy your books from?

All of my books (with the exception of The Ink Pot Planner) are available in all the popular Kindle, electronic and paperback formats from publishers worldwide. You can see my Amazon bookstore for the UK and US here. Alternatively, if you would like to contact me I can send you a signed copy of any book for the usual retail price plus postage.

Orders of The Ink Pot Planner are sent 2nd class via Royal Mail and should take a few days to reach their destination. If in stock the books are shipped within 48 hours of the order being placed. Please allow sufficient time for delivery overseas.
