1. Book-Alicious Mama is giving away a copy of Killer Image by Wendy Tyson.
2. Bewitched Bookworms is also giving away a copy of Killer Image by Wendy Tyson.
Molly Greene posted an article that Anne Chaconas wrote about 5 Mistakes Authors Make When Approaching Book Bloggers. After reading the article, I just have to say that Anne was spot-on.
Being still a relative newbie- I’ve only been blogging for almost 2 years- I’ve been lucky. I’ve managed to get into some great groups of bloggers, and on to a couple of publishers list. Since, though, I started accepting review inquiries from outside those avenues- I’ve had review requests that were fantastic and some that I could tell were mass-emailed. Most people do personalize their request- and I appreciate that. I’ve not really run into many authors who are making the mistakes that Anne is talking about- but, I encourage people to read this article.
Bloggers- what do you think? Are there mistakes that authors make that harm the blogger/author relationship?
