Lots of Good Stuff Coming Up

I'm very pleased with the number of writers and other professionals who have requested interviews, guest posts, and book reviews.  Within the next couple of weeks, you'll be seeing the list of Upcoming Appearances grow in length.  THANK YOU to all of you who are contributing to the blog.

PLEASE NOTE:  My Submission Guidelines are NOT an option, they are a requirement.  I did not institute them to be a hardass, really I didn't.  I simply found myself spending 15-20 hours a week sending/receiving e-mails and doing all the other stuff I needed to do to keep the blog running.  I simply don't have that time any more and thought that individuals who really want to appear on the blog will understand.  After all, professional writers understand they need to follow submission guideliness when submitting to an agent/editor, right?  My guidelines should be a piece of cake.  (And at least you'll get a friendly "form letter" e-mail from me when I receive your request if it doesn't meet my requirements.  A copy of the submission guidelines will be attached to it, too, along with a link.)

Bottom line:  I'll be able to schedule more "appearers" if I spend less time sending multiple e-mail instructions and details to multiple requesters.

Thanks for your understanding!


  1. For the record, the submissions guidelines ain't too hard and I don't think you're out of line in the least to expect writers to be able to follow them! Thanks for running this great "Author Exchange"!

  2. Thanks for your support, MB! I'm really looking forward to your upcoming interview!
