Please read the following rules carefully...
Our promos or features include a variety of posts, such as a
guest article, author
your service helps writers/authors in some manner, or even book readers) or character
book review (with
the permission of the original reviewer), book
or cover reveals, poetry
and our cool new option called The Author's Bookshelf
(inquire for more
details). We also run occasional book
giveaways. Refer to the blog schedule on the left side of the home
page for clarification about availability on guest spots.
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. Keep these two facts in mind:
I will NOT turn this blog into a forum for your inflammatory political views, so don't even bother sending those types of articles. That's not the point of Writing in the Modern Age.
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. 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.
***Feel free to approach me with your creative ideas about a blog post. However, please know that I’ve been through too many illnesses, family emergencies, and other drama this year, and I am now taking a long hiatus from my blogs. I may pop in now and then, just to write an article relevant to this blog’s theme, but it will be written by me. Basically, consider me away, working on my books for a while until I state otherwise. Most guest post options are not available in the meantime.
The following two types of posts may be considered as exceptions to the rule:
NOTE: Yes, I am willing to accept a 'Guest Book Review' -- Please email me if you'd like to gush about a great book you've read! Don't find this daunting. A book review can be as short as a paragraph, and as lengthy as you like. I will always, always do my best to make a blog post as attractive as possible, regardless of how much you say about the book. I can post about any genre, but if I decide the work might better fit a different blog of mine, I’ll ask if it’s okay to move it there instead.
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.
****REMEMBER: At this time, my schedule is full and does not allow me to consider writing official book reviews for your books on this blog. Requests for such reviews will be politely denied, no exceptions. Thanks for understanding.
I am, however, more than willing to celebrate your new release by offering you
a spot on the blog, if there is availability, or at least 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, occasional book reviews there.
However, if you're looking for a romance book review, read our review policy
first, as the guidelines are always in flux. 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 and Other Things , which sometimes accepts guest authors
in the form of various features.
***PAID OPTION – Yes, we also take sponsored posts here, 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. Email me at email@example.com
Book readers and aspiring writers, feel free to leave your thoughts or comments on the blog posts. We always love to hear from you! ;)
