I've been fielding several requests a week for guest posts, advertising, blog tours, and often strange combinations of the above. To spare you rejections, and save me some strange emails that I tend to delete, let's discuss the rules for guest posts.
Paid Content: No - I won't pay anyone else to write on my blog. If you or your company writes paid content for blogs, that's wonderful. This is my personal blog as an author and I write my content. Thank you for your interest, good bye.
Paid Advertising: No - I'm not interested in paying for you to place advertisements on this website.
Book Reviews: No - I love reviewers but not a one. If I really love a book, I'll recommend it on Twitter or put it on my GoodReads account. Please don't ask me to review or send me a copy of your book.
Guest Post: Maybe - I do occasionally look for guest bloggers. Ideal guest bloggers are familiar with subjects my readers will find interesting: science fiction, science, books, writing, and publishing. I am not interested in your political views, car articles, or rants of any kind.
Blog Tours: Yes - Scheduled in advance and if you provide the content, I am happy to participate in blog tours. I'll even do interviews if you provide a synopsis. (No Erotica or Graphic Horror)
Cover Reveals: Yes - Send me an email with the book blurb and I'll let you know. I can't think of a reason why I would say no, but I'm sure one will show up in my inbox soon enough. (No Erotica or Graphic Horror)
