JA Konrath Takes Blogging Break

Novelist and digital publishing evangelist JA Konrath will take a break from blogging about what he calls the publishing “indiestry.” At the same time, he has put out an open call for guest bloggers.

Here are more details on how to submit: “If you’d like to write a guest blog, email me your piece. It has to be about sharing what you’ve learned about publishing. Blatant self-promotion won’t win you a spot. Neither will praising me, shameless sycophantic behavior, or posts focusing on you and your books. Describing your writing journey, whether you’re experiencing success or failure, is what will be helpful to readers of this blog. That’s what I’m looking for. Sure, you can slip in some links to your book. But I want you to show what you’re doing, and explain if it is working. Shoot for under 1200 words … I’ll read everything emailed to me, but I’ll only respond if I’m interested in running your piece.”

In February, Amazon’s new Thomas & Mercer imprint will released Stirred, a book co-written by Konrath and Blake Crouch. (Via Publishers Lunch)
