Blog Carnival Submission Guidelines: Game Designers

I am hoping to host an ongoing blog carnival for game designers. The first blog carnival has been posted on July 31st. I will be promoting and offering game designers the chance to get in on this carnival next month; the carnival will be posted on August 31st.

The requirements are as follows:

* Article related to the gaming industry.
* Product has not yet been released.
* Talks about something design-related; i.e. character generation, inspiration, mechanics, research, etc.
* Have at least one product available for sale.
* Submit your article link to me no later than August 30th.

Submit to Blog Carnival for Game Designers

Matt M McElroy of Flames Rising will be helping me screen the links with the intent of promoting the post to several communities. First come, first serve for the initial blog carnival, so if I get flooded with a lot of articles I’ll be happy to post an additional blog carnival later on the the month.

The more articles I receive, the less “forgiving” I will be about fringe-related articles that may not be directly related to game design. In those cases where your article is marginally related, I will (most likely) separate the articles by topic or save them for a different post.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on this blog through the comments section. I will reply to you, personally.

Happy Gaming!

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
