Follow Friday

Q: What have you learned from Book Blogging that you didn't know before about the Publishing Industry.

A: Firstly, the ARCs and Galleys. When I started blogging I had no idea you could receive books for review. That just blew my mind! Secondly, the hard work put into blog tours and promotion for authors. I had no idea the planning that went into it. Being a blogger and participating in tours, you definitely get a raw, inside look at the hard work that publishers and/or authors go through for promotion!

The Crazy Bookworms wants to ask YOU
 with Christmas right around the corner, what books are on your wishlist?

  1. Hopping through. Blogging has given me a lot of respect for all the hard work authors and publishers go into for marketing.

  2. I was exactly the same with the ARC and Galleys! I had absolutely no idea what they were to start with.

  5. The arc copies are great to get.

  6. I had no idea publishers sent books out to bloggers, either. I knew they sent them out for review and to libraries, but not to bloggers.

  7. I agree about the ARCs and galleys :) I love taking part in the tours and promos and seeing what really goes into promoting a new book! New follower via GFC. My FF
