Writing in the Modern Age 2018 Year in Review
Hi, everyone! For our 472nd post, I’d like to take a moment to offer an overview regarding some of our blog’s events during the year.
Since its guest inception in 2013, Writing in the Modern Age has taken on a real life of its own! What began as a haven for writers at any stage of their careers to seek out advice and encouragement in their endeavors has also evolved into a place where readers can potentially find their new favorite author in any genre. We still offer writing tips, of course, but through interviews (author or character), special blog events and our Author’s Bookshelf Feature, readers can discover ever more about the authors and books featured on the blog. With 55 posts this year and nearly 70 participating authors, I’d say we’ve accomplished a lot!
Thank you all so much for visiting the blog in 2018, whether as loyal followers or newcomers! It was such a pleasure to have you here!
Also, many thanks to our great writers, service companies, and talented authors who wrote guest posts, visited in interviews, or participated in giveaways and book features!
Below I am including information about all the guests or authors featured in 2018. Each author/guest blogger will be listed with a link to the most relevant site or page to discover more information about their work. You’ll also find each author’s latest book cover, as well as his or her location in the world. What reader hasn’t wondered where his or her favorite author calls home? The covers will be accompanied by a purchase link. Additionally, I will add links to the blog posts in which each individual contributed this year. You can view any posts you might’ve missed!
Sound good? Awesome, let’s get started. ;)
Without further ado, here are our guests from 2018!
Anthology authors - Laura McNeill, Rhonda Kinard, Dr.Catherine Hayes, TrinaRamsey, Kirsten Blakemore, Leslie Thomas Flowers, RoseJones, Divya Parekh, Tracie L. James and MaggieGeorgopoulos
Readers, I hope you enjoyed our guest list this year! Authors, writers, and service companies, thanks once again for making Writing in the Modern Age awesome in 2018! We appreciate your support and wish you tons of success and happiness in everything you do. ♥
Here’s to a wonderful new year in 2019, a time for new beginnings. Let’s make the best of it!
Happy New Year, everyone!
And, as always, happy reading! :)

Cool new feature!
The fact is…our policy has changed considerably, at least for a while. Check out our 'Blog Policy' for more information about the types of features offered, how you can purchase a guest spot, my policy on review requests, and rules for guest writers. Starting from 2021, I was charging for some types of posts. Of course, there is never a fee for a guest article, as long as you adhere to the blog's theme. I also will not charge for big multi-author events which I host (these are giveaways or participation questions, and it's obvious what materials you're providing). If you'd like to submit a guest book review (no, I don't write book reviews, please don't ask me), I will always accept those and not charge you a fee at all. Starting in 2022, I WILL NO LONGER BE posting new release features, cover reveals, Author's Bookshelf features, author interviews, character interviews, and poetry spotlights. I am far too overwhelmed with other work to do constant blog posts. I'll still be writing my own articles sometimes and hosting multi-author special features. For companies that can afford a sponsored post, I'm willing to discuss a reasonable quote for a specialized article which fits within the blog's theme (No blatant promotions). Email me at
if you wish to participate in a unique post. Feel free to approach me with your creative ideas about a blog post. Slots at Writing in the Modern Age are always first come, first served. Contact us and reserve a spot! Refer to the 'guest schedule' at the top of the screen for further clarification about availability. Thanks for understanding.
