Feature & Follow #4

I am trying to increase my readership and gain new followers, so I have signed up for this meme, hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read. Visit either of their posts to see who else is taking part.

I would especially appreciate 'likes' for my Facebook Page.

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

I have learnt quite a lot, but the biggest surprise was discovering how many free books are given away to promote new publications. Whether they are ARCs, galleys or final copies, I sometimes wonder how the publishing houses and authors make any money! :D


  1. Yeah me too having only seen it from the consumers end, if I wanted a new book I waited until it was published and went to the store and bought no short cuts in between.So yeah that aspects was super surprising. Trust me honey they money a few golden gooses a twilight franchise here a harry potter phenomon there and its cake straight to the bank, every publishing house needs a handful of these a year to be in the green for the year.

  2. Yeah, that's true for me too! A lot was new to me as well!
