Guest Post Submission Guidelines

The Book Smuggler’s Den accepts guest posts via our online submission form.

There is no limit to the number of times you can submit a guest post. As long as it is well-written and fits our site, we will publish your post(s). This is a book blog, and we are looking for book reviews and resources for authors. Book reviews can be about your own book published under Dani (the Book Smuggler) or written under an alias. We do prefer you help promote your fellow indie authors and write a review about their book. Submitting a guest post is free!


  • Guest posts must be 250 – 1,000 words
  • Guest posts are book reviews. If you’d like to submit a piece of fiction, poetry, or personal essay to the magazine, please visit our magazine to learn more.
  • Guest posts will be live on the blog within 30 days
  • Guest posts will be reposted on Goodreads

If you’d like your submission to be added to our social media accounts, and wherever your book is sold, please visit our marketing packages for more information on how the Book Smuggler’s Den can help promote your book.

Guest posting for the Book Smuggler’s Den offers you the following benefits:

  • Gain and maintain relationships with others in the indie author community.
  • Unlock business/marketing opportunities for your book or business
  • Gain backlinks to your blog or website
  • Increase traffic to your site, book, or business
  • Grow your social media

Guest blogging is a fantastic way to break out of your usual circle and reach an audience that may have never heard of you before. We are ready if you are! Send us your best work and remember to tell us about yourself and give us information as to where readers can reach you or purchase your book/services/goods.

Please note the Book Smuggler’s Den does not pay contributors for their guest posts. What you write you own and can reuse however you please.

Due to the volume of submissions, we can’t respond individually to submission status queries. We will do our best to respond to your submission within 7 – 10 business days.
