I love hearing from readers, especially if you have a comment or suggestion about the blog or newsletter, or about my books.
You can email me (at email@example.com, or via the form below) or reach out on social media.
I don’t run ads or sponsored posts, and I’m not currently accepting guest posts.
Do you take guest posts?
Very rarely, and only by personal invitation. Please don’t contact me with a guest post pitch as it’s extremely unlikely I’ll be able to use it.
Will you try out my tool / app / website?
I get so many requests to try out tools / apps / websites / etc, I have to say “no” to all of them. Please don’t contact me asking me to try yours: even if it’s great, I’m afraid I simply don’t have the time!
Can I advertise on your blog?
No, you can’t. I don’t run ads on Aliventures and I don’t accept sponsored posts. I also don’t do joint ventures or similar affiliate promotions.
Can you help me with a writing problem?
I’m always very open to suggestions for questions or problems that I can tackle in the Aliventures newsletter (or, if they’re a bit meatier, on the blog). I’m afraid I can’t offer individual help and support by email, though.

Most writers love creating characters and writing about them – but it can be a struggle to get characters right. If you’re normally quite plot-focused, you might find yourself creating characters who are lifeless “pegs” that fit into the right-shaped spaces in your...read more
