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, mental health, or queer things, and not just be a random promotional post about your book.

It was great to meet you yesterday at the Ottawa Small Press Book Fair! Really enjoying perusing your novel! Thanks for the connect. Cheers, Kristin
Likewise! I had a really great time, thank you!
A little question:
You say that: ‘At the moment, I only review books on writing, not fiction books.’
Not sure if you mean on this page alone, so I’ll give my question a go:
I’m a Norwegian a student that have love the thought of being a writer her entire life. Over the years I’ve tries to write different stories, but most times I give up quite early in the process.Recently I’ve been able to sit down to work seriously on an original work of mine called ‘Moon Witches’. I haven’t gotten that far in the literal writing process yet – I’m trying out a new style of writing and would like some feedback on it before writing more. Would you be willing to take a look at what I have and just give me some pointers? Like what I did good, what I should work with a little and what I should get lots of help with.
The text I’d like you to look at is the first chapter – a text of two thousand words (2k)
I’d really appreciate it if you’d be willing to help me – and I will also post it on my blog – as a form of progress information – and you’d naturally be thanked and referred to in the text.
Other than that I wish you good luck on your future work and your blog,
