About The Blog & Blog Policy


The MLB blog was launched in 2012, with the intent of talking about my published books, writing and other author news. In January of 2015, the blog expanded to accept guest authors in the form of author interviews, book spotlights, cover reveals, blog tour posts or new release features. 

If you're a reader who has come to check out my work, thank you so much for visiting! Please feel free to visit my author website here at http://marielavender.com/ for a full list of my 22 published works and insider information for fans. You can also sign up for my monthly newsletter here to keep apprised of new book releases and other important updates.

I also have two other blogs, Writing in the Modern Age (#WritModAge), and the I Love Romance Blog (#iloveromance, #ILRB). Writing in the Modern Age is my guest author and writing community project. For the past three years, we've had over 250 different authors visiting in the form of author interviews, new release/cover reveal/book features, poetry spotlights, character interviews, guest posts with tips about writing, the riveting new Author's Bookshelf feature, service interviews which offer assistance to writers or authors, as well as big book giveaways throughout the year. I also write my own articles on that blog now and then. 

On the I Love Romance Blog, I give my news about any romance books I have out, occasional teasers from works-in-progress as well as romantic poetry. We also cover new romance releases by other authors, cool character interviews, author interviews, romance poems by poets, and guest posts about romance writing or tips about romantic relationships.

Feel free to browse the archives of MLB on the right hand side for my author news, as well as the awesome authors that periodically come to the blog to visit all of you! ;)


If you're an author visiting the blog for information about getting a spot, please feel free to check our guest schedule on the far right hand side of the page as you scroll down. Contact me at marieannlavender@gmail.com for one of our book or author features!

***NOTE: At this time, my schedule is full and does not allow me to consider writing official book reviews for your books on this blog or any other blog that I host. Requests for such reviews will be politely denied, no exceptions. Thanks for understanding. On my romance blog, however, we do offer book reviews. Please view our 'review policy' for more information.

I really appreciate your visit to the MLB blog! Have a lovely day! :)
