Guest Posts, Reviews, & More

Due to the changes in my career and requests for tours and guest posts, here are the guidelines for the aforementioned items so that they stick to my brand as a writer/blogger and myself as a reader.

**Please edit your posts before submitting! I am a full time writer and a blogger, so I don’t have time to edit your posts. If posts are unedited they are subject to rejection or will be posted as is. I will not be responsible for unedited posts.

**When sending in HTML code for posts, please be sure to eliminate all the spaces between characters. I have received a couple guest posts where I had to eliminate these spaces before I could read the post for approval or format it. I won’t be doing that anymore and posts will be rejected.

**Please format your post the way you want it to appear. All guest posts will be posted “as received”. I don’t have time to format or guess how your post is supposed to look. Formatting your post ahead of time in word or HTML will do the job.

**Editorial Policy: Any guest posts will be reviewed to make certain that it is a match to the branding of the blog. I am also reviewing for writing quality, and I will be checking for correct grammar and punctuation and readability. If the post doesn’t meet basic rules for basic writing skills, then I will reject the post.
