Submit to the Blog

Do you have a new release or guest post you'd like to share with readers? You may submit your information via the form below. Please keep in mind that only entries that are 100% complete will be considered for posting. Submissions to the blog are always free.


  • In addition to the blog, posts are automatically shared on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and most of the time on Pinterest. Authors are strongly encouraged to share those postings on their own pages and feeds.

  • If you have a specific date you'd like your entry posted, please be sure to submit your information two (2) months in advance. If your posting date is flexible, you may submit at any time and we post on the next available date. While we can't guarantee your posting date, we do our best to accommodate new releases and special offers.

  • NOTE: Both traditional and self-published authors are welcome to submit posts. Please keep in mind that self-published books must be professionally edited and covers should look professional. For the sake of our readers, we reserve the right to not post any content when the quality is in question.


Authors, publishers, author assistants, blog tour hosts, or publicists may submit information on behalf of the author.

Post Options

Guest Post

This is a standard guest post relating to your writing or your featured book, or a Top Ten List. You may find a list of guest post topic ideas by clicking here.

Excerpt Post

This post features an excerpt from your book. For these posts, your excerpt may be up to 700 words long and will be featured on a regular post date. Even if your book contains language and graphic content, the excerpt must not contain swearing or sex scenes, even if the book has such scenes.

New Release Post

If you have a new release that came out within the past 60 days or is coming out soon (we'll post it as close to your release date as possible), you may submit a post which includes the synopsis and short excerpt no longer than 700 words.

Cover Reveal

Are you ready to share your new book cover with world? We're happy to help! We recommend a cover reveal at least one month before your release date. To increase the chances that your cover reveal will be posted, be sure that it is professional and tasteful in both design and appearance.

Top Ten Lists

If you choose this option, be creative and make sure the post reflects something about you as an author and person.

Character Interview

Is one of your characters itching to be heard without you standing in their way? They've come to the right place. These questions would be created by the author.

Writer in the Kitchen

Long before MK McClintock started publishing and blogging, she had every intention of becoming a pastry chef. She chose another path (for which she's grateful), but never lost interest in the kitchen. Along the way, she discovered many authors who enjoyed spending time baking and cooking. Are you one of them? Do you have a recipe from one of your books or one that was inspired by your story, setting, or characters? Submit it, along with a little something about where the recipe fits into the story, or how it's related.

Is there any reason why my post might not be published?

We hope that every post submitted will be published on this blog. However, the readers deserve quality content, and we do our best to give that to them. As such, we do have a few situations where we may not publish your post.

  • Poor editing of the post or excerpt. We do understand that guest posts may not be edited by a bonafide editor, and that's okay, but we do expect the author to know the difference between a comma and period, and how to use their computer's spell check function.

  • Your book does not fit within any of the genres we feature.

  • Your book cover does not look professional. We get it, cover design can get expensive when self-publishing, but it all comes down to quality and what the readers deserve.

  • Your post or excerpt contains foul language. Your book may have swearing and steamy scenes, but the content posted on this blog must be kept G or PG rated with no swearing.
