Great! Let’s go, but please read our guidelines below first.
What we’re looking for, and what we can do for you.
√ We are only looking for content that is related to book publishing. If you have expertise and can offer sound advice in any field connected to self-publishing, whether it be writing, editing, book promotion, book marketing, book cover design, book blogging, book listing keywords and metadata or any other book publishing-related topic, we’re interested.
√ Your article will be fresh content, which has not been published online before.
√ We accept articles between 1,100-1,350 words with clear headings and subheadings. If you have some knowledge about writing around SEO keywords, that would be a bonus.
√ Our blog is evergreen, which means our articles are written to offer long term advice. Your article should be written with the thought in mind that it will be read in a year, or even two, and still offer good reading value. It will also give you long-lasting promotion.
√ Your article must be well-written with good grammar and accurate spelling, of course.
√ We will thoroughly proofread, and may make minor edits and or corrections your article.
√ We will give you one non-commercial nofollow backlink to promote your yourself. This will be used in the opening byline, in your short bio and in the profile image at the end of your article. You can also add 2 social media links in your bio. Your article can contain a few selected external links, such as to reference sites that provide extra value for readers, but we will not add commercial promotional links.
√ We will promote your article regularly, and long-term on our social media network of over half a million users, plus through our increasing organic traffic to help promote you.
Please Read This Carefully
1. We are only interested in high value advice articles related to writing, book marketing and publishing books.
We do not accept articles on subjects totally unrelated to publishing, such as website SEO, SSL certificates or content writing. Nor do we accept submissions that are clearly content marketing, or are aimed at promoting a business such as a writing or essay service.
2. We do not allow professional promotional links to a business site within the article text or in your bio. If you wish to promote a business or service on our site, please check our promotion and advertising page. From there we will be happy to discuss your promotional goals with you.
We read every request. If you send it, we read it, and we will respond as soon as humanly possible. Usually within 48 hours.
However, we get a lot of submissions, so if you submission is offering content that is totally unrelated to what we are looking for, or is clearly content marketing, we may not respond.
