BLURB POLICY

Frankly, part of me is stunned that I have made enough writer friends or become enough of a name (?) (I can’t tell which) that people are contacting me to blurb their books! But, it keeps happening, and now it appears that I need An One (1) Official Policy.

It is: I am delighted to take a look at your book to see if I can blurb it! The request must come from your editor and if I am able to and choose to blurb it, my blurb will go back to your editor. 

“But that means I can’t send you my self-published book!”

It does and I’m sorry, but unless we are very close friends, I am not going to blurb your self-published book. Due to recent experiences, I have to institute a rule that there has to be a body between me, an blurber, and you, an author. 

In particular, this gives me the ability to say something like ‘This book contains depictions of ableism, racism, other miscellaneous bigotry, gratuitous gendered violence, blatant ethnic or cultural appropriation, perpetuation of negative stereotypes, or other gross things that I did not like; and whether the book itself is any good or not, and whether I liked the book overall or not, and whether it is clear that it is narrative voice rather than authorial voice, in this case I do not wish to have my name attached to it.’  

However, if you and your editor do feel that I might be a good choice to do a blurb, you can contact me using the contact form on this site and I will at the very least get back to you with a yes/no and a projected timeline.

If you require information that is not on this page, please feel free to contact me using the contact form!
