Hey all -
School is coming up fast for me, so I want to make sure you're all aware of the variety of ways you can contribute to Lit Rambles and help me keep it a happening place to be. I'll still be posting Agent Spotlight profiles, Tip Tuesdays, and other writing/publishing related posts. But if you're interested, you can help fill in the empty days in any of the following ways.
Write a Guest Post:
I'm always looking for guest posts that are on writing/publishing related topics. Informative, educational, inspirational, etc!
Request an Interview:
Are you a published or soon-to-be published author in the children's field? An agent? An industry professional? I'd love to interview you!
Send in a Tuesday Tip:
Have a writing or research tip you'd like to share? Send it in for a Writing / Research Tip Tuesday post!
Request a Topic / Ask a Question:
I love getting requests and questions for blog posts. Throw 'em at me! I'll do my best to answer, find someone who can if I can't, and post it up on the blog for everyone else to weigh in.
Request an agent for Agent Spotlight:
I'm always adding to the list, so send in your requests! Note: I'm still working through agents that accept children's fiction, specialized or representing one or more genres therein. For example: If they represent mostly adult but also rep YA, as many do, I'm willing to spotlight them. Though, I'd love spotlight more agents that are specialized in children's!
Post Feedback and/or Response Times:
The Agent Spotlights posts are always open for comments. Feel free to leave feedback if you have experience with one or more of the spotlighted agents, or even post your response times for others to see.
Send in Updates:
It's gotten to the point that I can't possibly keep all the Agent Spotlight profiles updated on my own, which means you should always take note of the date they were posted and do a search for new content. If you come across something new (interview, great new information, agency switch, etc) on an agent I've profiled, please feel free to e-mail this information so I can update.
If you're the agent I've spotlighted, you can ALWAYS e-mail me updates or corrections for your spotlight.
Send in For Public Critique:
Send in 1-5 lines of material, preferably first lines but I'm open to others, or your query and I'll put it up in its own post for feedback from my readers. Comments will be moderated to maintain constructive feedback only.
Place a Wanted Ad:
Looking for a critique partner or beta reader? No guarantees on responses, but I'm willing to post a request to see if anyone out there is interested.
Blog Tours / Contests:
Children's authors! Are you on or setting up a promotional blog tour or need a contest outlet? I'd be happy to host a spot on Lit Rambles for you. Just contact me with ideas, details, specifics, etc.
I'm always open to ideas and feedback! Please feel free to contact me.
For all of the above, please e-mail to agentspotlight(at)gmail(dot)com.
