I’m now less than four months from my due date. (Yikes!) Right now I’m in that second trimester sweet spot where I’m mostly feeling good and trying to put that energy to use. With that in mind, I created a form for anyone interested in being a guest on my blog during my upcoming hiatus.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ll be stepping away from the blog this spring. I’m planning on taking off from March (a month before my due date) through June (after which I’ll – theoretically – have a three-month old… and hopefully a decent grasp of how to balance baby time and me time). I’ll have a few of my own posts pre-scheduled, but I’m also looking to my community to help me fill in the gaps.
I have a list of topics – borrowed from ITW’s 2014 ThrillerFest panels – that I was originally envisioning as discussions among bloggers. It might be logistically difficult to coordinate actual discussions, but I’d like to give it a try if I can get enough interest. (And while these topics obviously have a thriller slant, most are relevant to other genres as well… so if you’re not a thriller aficionado, don’t let that hold you back.)
Of course, I’m also open to more traditional guest posts; there’s a spot on the form if you want to do a review or write about another topic. I would ask that you keep posts relevant to the theme of this blog. Your idea doesn’t have to be thriller-specific – I write about general readerly things all the time – but it shouldn’t be exclusive to some other niche either.
I know this is a busy time for most of us, but if you’re interested in helping me out, fill out the form and I’ll be in touch.
