Blog Policy

Thank you for visiting the Writing in the Modern Age blog! And thanks for your interest in appearing as a guest. :)

Please read the following rules carefully...

Email me at if you wish to participate in a promo or feature such as a guest article, author interview, service interview (if your service helps writers/authors in some manner, or even book readers) or character interview, reposted book review (with the permission of the original reviewer), book features, new release features or cover reveals, poetry spotlight or our cool new option called The Author's Bookshelf (inquire for more details). We also run occasional book giveaways. 

Feel free to approach me with your creative ideas about a blog post. I will NOT turn this blog into a forum for your inflammatory political views, so don't even bother sending those. That's not the point of Writing in the Modern Age. This blog was designed to foster creativity, to help writers with any aspect of their careers, at any stage or from any background, and to introduce readers to new authors and books. Refer to the blog schedule on the left side of the home page for clarification about availability.  

As aforementioned, our interviews are ever popular, whether in the form of character perspectives, service interviews about a company that can help authors/readers, or an author interview. The greatest thing about our author interviews is that on Writing in the Modern Age, if you as the author have a second/third/fourth interview on the blog, the questions change for you, so readers will always get a different take on you, your book and your life.

We accept all book genres on Writing in the Modern Age, but please know I will NOT post adult excerpts. Curse words and some tough issues are fine. As I can't be sure who exactly visits the blog, it's best to keep everything professional, though. If you do submit a highly adult or graphic excerpt, and you give me no other options, I will only post the content that I deem fit for the blog.

At this time, my schedule is full and does not allow me to consider writing official book reviews for your books on this blog. Request for such reviews will be politely denied, no exceptions. Thanks for understanding. If you have a romance book, though, I do have a professional reviewer available on my romance blog. Check our 'review policy' for more information.

Authors, I am, however, more than willing to celebrate your new release by offering you a spot on the blog, if there is availability, or helping to tweet/retweet a promo if you simply email me. I also have two other blogs. One is the I Love Romance Blog, where I usually host character interviews and other interviews for romance authors, guest posts about romantic relationships, features for the latest releases of romance novels, and yes, we offer book reviews there. Please pay attention to the right-hand side of that blog for submission calls for specific blog features. My other blog is Marie Lavender's Books!, which sometimes accepts guest authors in the form of various features.

PAID OPTION – Yes, we also take sponsored posts, if your company’s budget allows it, AND if the post would be a good fit for Writing in the Modern Age. Please reach out to me for a quote and details.

Book readers and aspiring writers, feel free to leave your thoughts or comments on the blog posts. We always love to hear from you! ;) 

P.S. Commentary provided by guest writers on any subject does not reflect the blog moderator's personal views. Thanks in advance for understanding.
