Permission to reproduce an article from this website

Thank you for asking! You are welcome to publish a brief excerpt (not the entire article) and link back to the original page on

Guest post submissions

Please read the Guidelines for Guest Writers and use the contact form on that page.

Authors and publishers

I love books, but I don’t do book reviews. You’re welcome to send me a copy, and if something in it inspires me, I may write about it (and credit you prominently), but I can’t guarantee any publicity.

If I think a book is really exciting and important for my readers to know about, then I typically ask to interview the author.

If you really want to get the word out about your book to my readers, then the surest way of doing that is to write an original guest article, which I’ll be happy to consider for publication.

(The same applies if you have a new website or product you think my readers would like to hear about.)

Requests for help

I do my best to be helpful. If you look at my websites, you’ll find hundreds of free articles, plenty of free ebooks, and a free 26-week creative careers course.

If you have a question or request for specific information you can’t find on my sites, please send me a brief message, with your question clearly stated at the top. That will help me understand what you want and get back to you as quickly as possible.

If you’re looking for in-depth help with your career, creativity, marketing or other business challenges, I’ll be happy to help – and would gently nudge you in the direction of my coaching service.

Press releases, link exchanges, buying links or putting me on the front page of Google

Let’s not go there. Life is short and there are more rewarding things to do. 🙂

Thank you!
