Every now and then at 5a.m. (probably posted by my clone) I will be bringing you a newsflash, update on what I’m doing, invited guest piece, or whatever takes my fancy, and today the tables have been turned!
Novelist Tom Rizzo recently invited me to be a guest on his website and my piece on crime writing (the ‘dark’ of my ‘dark and light’) can be found at: http://www.tomrizzo.com/blog/2012/08/14/about-writing-morgen-bailey.
Tom has a new guest each week for his ‘On Writing’ (coincidentally sharing the same name as the most recommended – Stephen King’s – writing guide in my interviews) and so far has welcomed…
- Una Tiers (who has also been my guest blogger)
- Pat Bertram
- Angie Azur
- Kris Wampler
- Jeannie Faulkner Barber
- Gayle Gross
- then there’s me
- 21st August will see Ellis Vidler
- and 28th August, Faye Tollison
If you do take a look, please do leave a comment (or even just click the like button, or both… or share it with your writing friends / followers) – it means the world to us, as the cliche goes… thank you.
You can sign up to receive these blog posts daily or weekly so you don’t miss anything… and follow me on Twitter where each new posting is automatically announced. You can also read / download my eBooks and free eShorts at Smashwords, Sony Reader Store, Barnes & Noble, iTunes Bookstore, Kobo and Amazon, with more to follow. I have a new forum, friend me on Facebook, like me on Facebook, connect with me on LinkedIn, find me on Tumblr, complete my website’s Contact me page or plain and simple, email me. I also now have a new blog creation service especially for, but not limited to, writers.
Unfortunately, as I post an interview a day (amongst other things) I can’t review books but I have a feature called ‘Short Story Saturdays’ where I review stories of up to 2,500 words. Alternatively if you have a short story or self-contained novel extract / short chapter (ideally up to 1000 words) that you’d like critiqued and don’t mind me reading it / talking about and critiquing it (I send you the transcription afterwards so you can use the comments or ignore them) on my ‘Bailey’s Writing Tips’ podcast, then do email me. They are fortnightly episodes, usually released on Sundays, interweaving the recordings between the red pen sessions with the hints & tips episodes. I am now also looking for flash fiction (<1000 words) for Flash Fiction Fridays and poetry for Post-weekend Poetry.
