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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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?
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.
