Guest Post Guidelines
Do you love reading SF books as much as you love writing? Good news! My blog is now open to guest posts.
What I’m looking for
Articles, essays, and list posts in the 800 – 2,000 word range on topics related:
- Science fiction and fantasy topics, themes, or tropes
- Science fiction and fantasy books
- Stories about major events or periods in SFF history
- Profile of famous SFF artists, authors, editors
- Deep dives into SFF sub-genres
What I’m not looking for
I’m not looking for articles on the craft of writing. I’m also not looking to publish your short stories. I have published some fiction on mgherron.com, but it’s either my own or freely available in the public domain.
Most popular posts
To give you a better idea, here are some of the most popular posts on this blog today:
- The Best Matrix Fan Theories
- 6 Impactful Science Fiction Novels of the 20th Century
- 6 Hilarious Science Fiction Novels You Don’t Want to Miss
- The Big Reading List of Indie Published Portal Fiction
- 20+ Sci-Fi Short Stories in the Public Domain
I’m interested in expanding the topics, so don’t let what’s popular limit your imagination.
How to submit
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Guest post idea: [Your idea here]” in the subject line, and your idea in pitch form (~100 words) in the body of the email.
All pieces will be attributed to you as the original author. I’ll also include a link back to your website in your bio, if you wish, but not to a book you wrote unless it’s highly relevant. While these kinds of pieces are great book marketing, selling your book should not be the purpose of the article. Finally, if at any point you no longer want the piece to be published, I will honor the request without hesitation.
Thanks, and feel free to share a link to these guidelines with people you know.
