  1. Please DO NOT sign up for a post if your book is not in one of the genres listed above. Contact me if you are unsure if your book is right of the Universe.
  2. Please write a lively article–not an excerpt–of around 500 to 1000 words. In addition, include the cover and blurb of your book along with preorder or buy links. You can also add an author bio. Include any images you want to go with your post and/or bio.
  3. IMPORTANT! Submit your post at least 2 weeks before the date you signed up for. If you are going to be late, just let me know. Sad Story–I’ve had authors send their posts to me the day before or even the day of their scheduled post. This causes me to go into anxiety overload–and nobody wants that.
  4. Please provide trigger warnings as needed. We love everything, but we want to give a heads-up to anyone who might need it.
  5. A best practice: Link to your own website where readers can find an excerpt or more info about you and your writing. The goal is to capture readers and sell them your books 🙂
  6. Do link to your social media. Just add the links to your post.
  7. Be aware that I will bounce posts if they are late and I have not heard from you. I’ll also bounce posts if they do not fit the guidelines—mainly if the topic doesn’t work for my peeps or is way too long. Seriously, I hate to be a harda$$ about this kind of thing, but based on experience, a little hard a$$ery is sometimes required. Let me know if you have questions or if anything doesn’t make sense.

      Suggestions for Topics

      Sorchia’s Universe caters to vampires and werewolves, trolls and gnomes, Jinn and genies, fairies and Faeries, the occasional goblin, and all the witches. We love any topic that deals with the paranormal, the occult, the mysterious and shady, and the just plain odd. We also love learning about your writing—tell us how you get ideas and how you go about the magic of turning ideas into a book.

      In general, anything that deals with the magical side of life or something mysterious that intrigues you. Thought-provoking posts that surprise us or leave us with questions about what is real and what is not are the very best!

      We don’t mind if you recycle a post you’ve used before. Just make sure it fits our guidelines and will appeal to the beings in Sorchia’s Universe.

      • Top Ten lists—cult classic horror movies/witchy books/new paranormal authors—you get the idea.
      • Slice of an Author’s Life—Do you write with a cat in your lap, a gecko on your shoulder, or a ghost sitting beside you? We want pictures.
      • Writing tips and tricks—Many of my readers are also authors. What can you add to the collective? Can we learn from your mistakes and from your triumphs? Do you have a go-to source for information? How do you organize and get in the Zone?
      • Hobbies—Especially if your hobby involves crystals or herbs or hexes or moon watching—but really any hobby works for us.
      • Recipes—Recipes are spells. Tell us what’s cooking and why it works.
      • Favorite foods—This could be holiday related—Best Halloween snacks/ Easy Yule pastries/ Tasty Easter treats.
      • Favorite vacation spots—haunted vacations or experiences—folklore about a place or object you encountered.
      • Research gold—something interesting that relates to your book—bonus if it is a little weird. Double bonus if it is spooky. Triple bonus if you can work in some tasteful eye candy.
