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. Refer to the blog schedule on the lower left side of the home page for clarification about availability.  

We accept all book genres on Writing in the Modern Age, but please know I will NOT post adult excerpts. Curse words are fine. As I can't be sure who visits the blog, it's best to keep everything professional, though. If you do submit an 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.

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 retweet your tweets if you simply email me. I also have two other blogs, Marie Lavender's Books!, which accepts guest authors in the form of various features, and the I Love Romance Blog, where I host character interviews for romance authors as well as guest posts about romantic relationships, and features for the latest releases of romance novels. Please pay attention to the right-hand side of that blog for submission calls for specific 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.

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