At one point in my career, I was able to personally respond to every message I received. That has become much harder over time. The volume of people reaching out has surpassed my ability to keep up. If you use this contact form to make a general request, like "Tell me how to get my book published" or "Can you tell me how to get started writing?" you may not receive a response. However, if your question is specific and I think I can offer meaningful or concrete guidance, I enjoy helping.
If you'd like to work with me or hire me, do make that clear in your message. Even if I can't help you, I may be able to recommend trusted services and consultants in the community. (I also have a resource list here.)
Before pitching a guest post
Check the guest post archives to get an idea of what type of guests and guest posts I typically accept. I rarely accept guest posts from people or businesses outside of the writing and publishing community. My standards are high, and I sometimes ask for revisions. If you want help on pitching a guest post, try this advice from Copyblogger, or this advice from Problogger. Both methods are acceptable.
For the best and most personalized results, be specific with your question or request.
