Reading Updates, Writing Tips, and More!

I keep up a weekly blog through Blogger, where I ramble about bookish things. Some posts focus on craft, offering glimpses into my writing process and offering tips, and others are hints at in-progress writing projects.

Recently, I began interviewing fellow indie authors on a semi-weekly basis as a way to highlight and celebrate their works and get to know other writers. It’s been a joy to chat with them! You can find the ongoing interview posts on my blog, as well.

New @ Mayhem & Magic!

I’m now inviting book bloggers and reviewers to submit their reviews of indie books to be featured on my blog.

Guidelines for Guest Reviews

Send your review as a Word (.docx) file or pasted directly in the body of an email to Label your subject line “Review Submission: BOOK TITLE.”

You may also include links to your personal blog, Goodreads page, and social media. I will include these links at the end of the post.

Submitted reviews will be posted in the order in which they were received. I will post two reviews per month.

Each post will have a brief introduction written by me, followed by the review copied from the email you sent. I will not alter anything about your review unless there is a formatting issue such as presence of emoji, images, or gifs.

Please only send reviews of books that are self-published or published by small, independent presses. In other words, no “Big 5” books. Poetry collections, short story anthologies, graphic novels/comic series, and nonfiction are fine; this is not exclusive to novels.

This is an entirely free offer. My only goal is to help spread the word about great indie books. I ask for nothing in return, but do feel free to reach out if you’d like a free copy of my book in exchange for an honest review.
