A Love Letter to Book Bloggers!

Ah, book bloggers…how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height our Social Media can reach.

I love thee for thy honesty and for the endless hours spent wandering through a sea of words.

I love thee for sharing the posts that drives endless hordes of readers to discover new worlds.

Yes, there are an endless number of reasons to love a book blogger, for without them the Indie Revolution would be little more than the turn of a very slow wheel.

AprilYou may not always like what a blogger has to say, but you can trust that it is his or her honest opinion of the book they have read. That honestly is what makes their opinion so valued. It’s what drives us to do our very best work. Sure there are occasions when I wish that glowing four-star review was a five. I’m only human. Bloggers have every right to be critical. Some of them read as many as thirty books a month. I’m sure not all of those reads are wonderful ones, but still they continue on.

Although we authors write the stories, the bloggers who read them and share their thoughts so openly are the ones who deserve a huge vote of thanks for connecting us to the world of readers.

I’d like to introduce a few of the wonderful bloggers I’ve been fortunate enough to work with just during the past six months. These bloggers have not only have introduced my work to new readers, but they’ve also introduced me to countless books I might have otherwise missed.

Please visit these bloggers, but stop back soon, because in the near future, I am going to have a book  blogger link up. With just the flick of finger you’ll be able to hop over and check out the reviews on not just my books, but many other awesome reads.

    Thank you so much for the shout out. Very kind words. Yes indeed, you are right we read an enormous amount of books every month and not all of them are five star reads, but I can always find something positive to say. That is a great group of bloggers up there and I am pleased to be counted among them. Thanks, Bette!

      That’s why I wrote the post. Book bloggers are so supportive! Again, thank you.
