Want to Post?

Inklined welcomes guest posts 

from teen writers or YA authors.  If you fit into one or both of these categories, please leave a comment with your e-mail address and possible blog post topic, and I'll try to get back to you within two weeks. If you don't hear from me within that time, feel free to leave another comment or e-mail me at sarah(dot)y(dot)faulkner(at)gmail(dot)com.

Inklined is not a book review blog.  

I don't write reviews for books unless I'm giving them 5-stars.  You cannot possibly guarantee your book will be a 5-star book for me unless your name is Megan Whalen Turner, Eoin Colfer, Sarah J Maas, Jennifer Nielson, Cinda Williams Chima, or Stephanie Morrill. (If you happen to be one of those authors, feel free to e-mail me, as I'd be happy to read and review your book.) For more about my opinions on book reviews, read Why I Don't Do Book Reviews and Why I Don't Like Free Books.

Inklined is New Author Friendly.

 I love helping new authors, especially authors on this side of 30! If you would like a list of great teen reviewers and readers, I'd be happy to refer you to several of my blogging friends that DO write book reviews.  Here are a few:
Hannah at Candy Apple Books
Jillian at Covers and Ink
Cait at The Notebook Sisters
Emma at Awkwordly Emma
Emily at Emily Rachelle Writes
Rosie at Writings of Rosie
If you're a teen blogger/reviewer who would like their blog included on this list, please leave a link to your blog in the comments.

If you write YA novels, Inklined might be willing to spotlight your novel in a blog post.  Send an email to me at sarah(dot)y(dot)faulkner(at)gmail(dot)com.  In your email, include:

  • INKLINED SPOTLIGHT REQUEST in the subject line.
  • A summary of your book.
  • The cover of your book.
  • The links to your book on Goodreads and Amazon (if applicable.)
  • Your author bio
  • Your author photo
  • Your novel's release date (if applicable)
Please note that I have the power to deny anyone a spotlight on Inklined. Spotlights are given on personal preference. High preference will be given to fantasy novels, teen authors, first time authors, and clean fiction.

Thank you for your interest in Inklined. Please comment or email me with any questions.


  1. Hello, Sarah!
    My name is Andy Walser. I'm a 16, nearly 17 year old fantasy writer. My email is writer829(at)gmail(dot)com. I would like to write a post for Inklined about the relations between realism and high fantasy. Thank you for your time!

  2. Hey Sarah!

    I'm Andrea Marie. I'm 12, going on 13 and I am currently writing the first draft of my novel.

    I'd like to talk about how criticism from peers is important or how to get into the 'writing zone'.

    Also, I'd love you to guestpost on my blog, andreamariewritesstuff.blogspot.com.

    Maybe we can discuss all this through email? Mine is andreamariewrites(at)gmail(dot)com. Thank you! Looking forward to getting in touch

  3. Hello, Sarah!

    My name is Jessica, I'm 16, and currently working on the first draft of my second novel. (Though I have yet to be published. It's a long story.) I am interested in guest posting here on Inklined. I would love to write about what to do when you're too frustrated with your writing to continue.

    You can email me at jessica(dot)wolfpack(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks!

  4. Hey, Sarah!

    My name is Anne Marie. I'll be 17 at the end of the month and I've been writing ever since I could. I would love to do a guest post here on what it means and what it takes to be a writer. My email is 11anniem@gmail.com.

    Thank you so much for the great work that you do!

  5. Hello Sarah,

    My name is Abigail Post, and I blog at writingabby.wordpress.com. I'm seventeen years old, and I write for the fantasy and science-fiction genres. I'd love to write a post about time management as a teen writer. You can reach me at abigailbpost(at)gmail(dot)com.
