Those Fabulous Book Bloggers

Soooo… my book Meant to Be, has been sitting in a great spot on the Amazon charts for some time now, and for this, I am so very thankful. Getting your book in the hands of the readers is perhaps the hardest job for all writers. For me, it has all been possible because of a fabulous group I like to call, my book bloggers.

Book bloggers should be every writers best friend. They are friendly, they love to read, and the majority of them are so very nice. They help spread the word about books they have read and they can be incredibly supportive. They enjoy interacting with writers and have wonderful insight. I could not live without my wonderful batch of bloggers. They make being a writer the best job imaginable.

There is no secret recipe for finding great book bloggers except to treat them how you would like to be treated. Respect what they do for you considering they take the time out of their busy lives to not only read our books, but to also review them too. Take some time to visit some blogs and see what they are all about. Listed on my blog roll are some of my favorites. 😮

    I agree. Whether you’re an indie author or published through a big house, marketing and ad budgets just aren’t the same as they used to be. And even while advertising may get your book noticed, it does nothing to entice a reader to actually fork over money for your book. When you buy a book, you buy time and in this day and age, time is precious.

    Book bloggers get the word out. Good reviews or bad, they create talk and talk turns into sales. They really are the unsung heroes, especially those ones who are brave enough to take on self-published book without giving into the stigma. I appreciate their risks, wholeheartedly. I myself have only had a few at this point, but their influence was felt right away.

    Three cheers for Book Bloggers!

    Such an awesome post! Makes me feel very proud to be a book blogger! And of course where would we be without awesome authors such as yourself? All of the authors I’ve chatted with so far have been nothing but gracious, which has made this blogging experience that much better. Also, I love writing reviews; it gives me such a feeling of accomplishment and it feels good to know that I’m spreading the word about these books to people who are going to hopefully love them as much as I did! On a side note, I bought your book quite a few months ago and I feel so left out with everyone talking about how wonderful it is – I haven’t gotten the chance to sit down and read it yet! Definitely have to do that soon!

    Great post, Tiffany! I like the fact the writing community is always there to help…especially when we get to know each other more and more through tweets, Facebook posts and the like! I too believe in giving credit where credit is due on account of the joy it brings when recognition is handed out! Keep up the great work!

    This is super sweet of you! Extremely thoughtful! Reviewing books for Indie authors takes a huge toll on you because it is more personal. So, here I have a dozen books to review for Indie authors and I have no idea where to start. And I know that they are waiting for reviews so it makes me feel REALLY bad that I don’t have speed reading skills.

    How wonderful! I discovered just a few book bloggers as a reader. Now when I’m nearly ready to publish as an indie author, I went looking for marketing opportunities. I was floored, just floored by how many wonderful book bloggers exist – and YA book bloggers! It fills my heart with joy. People still love books! Whoever says no one reads is clueless!

    Could not agree more. They are really helping me in finding my audience for my book. I can’t imagine how I would spread the word about my novel if it weren’t for the kindness, generosity and passion of book bloggers.
