Submission Guidelines

Today I want to outline some of the items we'll be including in posts to this blog. Remember, anytime you have news of the Lost Genre, let us know: webmaster at lostgenreguild dot com.

To qualify as Lost Genre News, the works we promote must be Christian and also fall into the speculative genre - that is, science fiction, fantasy, horror, or any subgenre of these.

New Releases
The Lost Genre is growing every day, and we want to help the fans keep up with it. Not restricted to members of the Lost Genre Guild, we aim to cover everything that happens in our sphere of interest.

E-zine Updates
The non-paper equivalent of New Releases. There's more to discover!

Because we're just beginning to blog news, this section is not restricted to new sites. We'll be glad to feature any Lost Genre locations.

Author News
Now we get down to the nitty-gritty. Authors may submit their personal news as related to writing and publishing the Lost Genre. Finished a draft? Signed a contract? Have a cover or release date for your coming opus? Let's hear about it.

Industry News
Which publishers are courting the Lost Genre? Where's the next big thing going to happen?

If it didn't fit anywhere else, it might still fit. Contests, reviews, book trailers, author blogs, and the like.

Guest Bloggers...
...are most welcome. If you have something to say about an aspect of the Lost Genre, then say it (short 'n' sweet please, let's say 400 words max) and submit it. We'll be glad to feature guest bloggers up to once a week. Note: This should be aimed mainly at readers, not writers! Exceptions not excluded.

For Writers
We won't forget you! If there's a site to help out budding (or flowering or fruiting) writers, we'll list it here for you as it comes to light.

Let the fun begin!


...and, we're back!

It's not often a blog is born again. But this one is.

After a year of team blogging (which you can find in the archives) we let it fizzle out. Die a natural death, so to speak.

But the time has come for the Lost Genre Blog to return in a different form. Same address, new content.

What content, I hear you ask?


Where beforehand this blog contained essays by writers and for writers, henceforth it shall bear tidings of the world of the Lost Genre...for readers.

Lord willing, this will be a place for fans of Christian speculative fiction to find what they're looking for, and even what they weren't looking for but will definitely enjoy.

So...if you're a reader, kindly subscribe to this blog. If you're an author, please do likewise, and also send your news to webmaster at lostgenreguild dot com. Do you have an author newsletter? Let us know.

Look out in the next few days for a post containing submission guidelines and the kind of news we want.
