As a writer, I value the work of other writers and would like to support a trend that helps spread the word about writers across the internet and blogosphere. Beginning in 2014, I will be supporting other writers with occasional Guest Blogs here at Experiments in Writing and Marketing.
If you are an author with an upcoming or recently released book or you have a blog on a topic that has been covered here, I welcome you to contact me about hosting a post for you. Choose one of the dates below and email me with the date you would like, the topic you would like to cover, and a link to your blog or website.

Sorry for the delay, but there have been computer technical difficulties. They still are not fixed, though I managed a work around to bring this to you.
The vast amount of social media and marketing opportunities is staggering. Every day I hear that authors should have this account and that account, post here, tweet there, and plus this (whatever that is). So, I am revising my strategy for marketing at the same time that I am writing. Instead of trying to cover the “must have” social outlets, I am going to concentrate on making this blog the best it can be with plenty of interactive elements. There will be a Facebook page that is basically a mirror of the content here so that I can reach people that live there and rarely visit the blog.
After I have conquered those two areas, the rest will come as it feels natural to be added as an elemental part of the online experience around the book. I am open to hearing how others use social media and how they would like to be able to interact in a world from a novel.
