As a writer who has gone through the book publishing process once and is going through it a second time, I know just how important Book Bloggers are to the writer/publisher/reader world.
Writing a book is only the first step. Next you have to sell it to an agent or editor, then you have to promote it. In the “good old days” when publishing budgets included money for book tours, writers could look forward to help in getting their word out about their books. That’s different in today’s tight market. What I love is that just when you think there’s no way you’re going to be able to tell readers about your supercalifragilisticexpialidocious novel, here come some heros to save the day.
So thanks, Book Bloggers, for becoming the conduit between the writer/publisher and the reader. You are totally appreciated.
