Follow Friday

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends. This weeks question is:

Q: What have you learned from book blogging that you didn't know before about the publishing industry?

So much! First I had no clue that publishers have various imprints. I had never hear of advance reader copies before blogging, and the whole entire marketing process was something I never really paid attention.

Long story short, I learned that a lot of work goes into the release and creation of a book. Much more than I though initially.

Happy Weekend!


  1. It must be crazy, how much work goes into releasing a book. By the time the book is released, that writer has moved onto something else. :)

  2. Hey Great F&F! New Follower.

    I think we really take for granted how much goes into these novels, but it's crazy!

  11. Hopping through! I agree, there is a lot more to the publishing industry than what a lot of people realise.

  12. ARCs was my answer, too :) As an aspiring author, I also was unaware of the amount of work that goes into publishing a book. I definitely have a long road ahead of me :) Happy reading!

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
