Guest posts and reviews:
If you would like me to review your book, please use the contact forms below to get in touch with me. Please note that I mostly review independent books and especially books by and about queer and other marginalized people.
I also welcome guest posts and interviews from published (including self-published) authors. If you want an interview, I will choose the questions; if you want to write a guest post (which I usually prefer over an interview) you are free to choose your topic, however, it must have something to do with your writing/creative process, being a marginalized writer, or queer things, and not just be a random promotional post about your book.
