Lining Up Guest Bloggers for 1st Quarter 2012

It's very hard to believe, but it's almost time to start scheduling my guest authors and bloggers for the first part of 2012.

If you have a book scheduled for release early next year, and if you want to promote that book on my blog as a single post or part of a blog book tour, contact me as soon as you have a firm publication date. Mondays and Thursdays will be open to guests.

I want to focus more on the mystery/suspense/thriller genre, including YA and Middle Grade mysteries, but women's fiction, fantasy/sci fi, some horror and paranormal novels, and other genres interest me as well. Since I read all kinds of fiction and non-fiction, it's very hard for me to exclude most writers.

Authors of erotica and graphic gore might want to skip me, however. I'm inclined to avoid novelists I wouldn't recommend to my mom or my 13-year-old grandniece. I'm just sayin'.

A link to my e-mail address is included in my blogger profile, or you can leave a comment below along with your contact information.

Pat - Thanks for generously opening your blog to guests. Much appreciated!

Nice of you to do all this hosting. I wish I had a book ready for press - so far behing on my own WIP's because of all the editing I'm doing for other authors lately. But will keep you in mind, of course, when I do get my next book finished and pub'd.

I love my guests, Margot. It's a great way to make new friends as well as find new books to read.

Hi Marvin. It's always something, isn't it? I can find so many ways to interfere with my own writing goals...so far, however, making money hasn't been one of them. :)

You were gracious enough to host me for my first book, and I appreciate that!
For the next one, could you reserve a tiny portion of your post on February 28 for a shout-out? That would be awesome!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hi Alex -- I e-mailed you about the dates. And you don't have to restrict yourself to a shout-out on my blog. You're welcome to a whole guest post if you want.

You're amazing, Patricia. Unfortunately, I have nothing published yet that deserves to be promoted, so I hope that you find some awesome authors to showcase to the world!

Oh I wish I was ready for this offer!!! Someday...Someday.

Laura M. Campbell said...

I can't wait to see who makes it on the list! I love meeting new authors on your site.

Hi Pat:

Please, please pick me. My urban fairytale novel CURSES! A F**Ked-Up Fairytale will be released on March 1, 2012. I would love, love, love to be a guest on your blog, and I swear, even though the title might not suggest it, it's not full of swear words at all. :)

Thanks!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Marlena and Dean, I'll be ready when you are.

Laura, it's fun for me too. Writers are amazing, fun people (even the ones who are introverts).

J.A. -- I'm waving my magic wand and poof!, you're on the schedule. I'll e-mail you with the particulars.

Patricia, I would love to do a guest post on your blog.

I plan on releasing my next book in November, but I actually prefer to wait on doing a book tour (since my books are not commercially published, and therefore don't have a "launch week" expiration date). I was planning on doing some sort of blog tour in January or February. Would you be interested?

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hi Camille -- Absolutely yes, and I've e-mailed you with additional information. I'll be looking forward to working with you.
