Feature & Follow #3


Q: WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM BOOK BLOGGING THAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW BEFORE ABOUT THE PUBLISHING INDUSTRY?








Well we have only been blogging for about 5 months, but we have learned so much in the processes.  before blogging we didn't know what ARC's were , or Galleys for that matter. Since we have only been up and running for about 5 months we haven't dealt with publishers much, but we are super excited for when that time comes.It's so exciting to take part in Cover reveals, book blitz and tours. There is so much that goes on to promote books that i was never aware of.

  5. I learned about the same as you did, mostly about ARCs! But also as a book blogger I learned that not all authors stop by on your tour stop! :) I try to do this on my tours, but maybe it's not expected?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog - I'm so swamped with stuff this week I have almost zero time to visit anyone. :) (But I always hop back!)
