Happy New Year! I hope the year is off to a great start for you, even if it’s only two days old. If you’ve followed my blog for very long, you know I have a monthly theme. I will stick to that schedule for this year too but with an added twist. For 2023, the Journey of a Book will be the overarching theme for the entire year. All the monthly themes will support the theme of how a book is produced, from inspiration to publication, including literary techniques and requirements for specific genres. I’ll be writing from my own experience and having other authors share theirs.
Speaking of other authors–if you are a writer and would like to guest blog for me, please click on the button “Contact’ in the top menu bar and fill out the form. If you’d like to read previous guest blog posts, click here.
The monthly themes for 2023 are below.
- January: Inspiration–anything about how to find ideas for stories
- February: Romance
- March: YA
- April: Setting
- May: Historical fiction
- June: Characters
- July: Christian fiction
- August: Plot
- September: The business of publishing
- October: Mystery
- November: National Novel Writing Month
- December: Editing
A gust blog post should be 400-600 words long. That count doesn’t include a short bio with social media links. I will also need a headshot. If you have a meme with the title of your guest post, send that along too. If you are a published author, I will feature one book. I will need a cover, buy links, and blurb.
If you have experiences that other writers should learn about, please join me for the Journey of a Book. We can all grow in our art by learning from one another!
