Ah the two groups that never seem to join together book blogs and publishing Houses. I noticed yesterday that life seems to be one big climb up a rather large mountain. I didn’t take to much time to begin to wonder what about book blogs and publishing houses? Are they really so different? Do they need each other?
I think I got you there. Book blogs, you know the kind that review books, and publishing Houses work hand in hand. A publishing house, such as Random house, or Forge and Tor Books, publish the books we read. For many instead of word of mouth, they write a book blog.
As A part of the new look of this blog I’ll list my three favorite book blogs here. I really want to showcase people’s blogs, and hopefully, this will create a sensation!
These three make great book blogs, and make the publishing houses feel great. Think about it, if you were to have a review, where would you love to put it?
Yes, in a newspaper, but what about book blogs? These people put me to shame, Marg for one already has more that 260 posts, THIS year. Alissa, is not far behind. Historical Tapestry is a group of reading fanatics. How can they read and review all these books? (Marg, Alissa, Alex Ana, Kailana and Teddy how do you do it??)
Simple, they read and think. I know that all publishing Houses love them. These people are one big reason why people continue to expand their horizons. I can find more than a hundred books I now want to read from them. A big Thanks to all you book blogs out there!
My Question For you Today is this: Do you think that bloggers who write book blogs help publishing houses?
