Feature & Follow *8*


Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet people and gain more followers in the book blogging community.


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

Wow, this is a great Q. Hmm, honestly, before I started to Blog about Books/Films, (in August 2011) I was really unaware that writers could self-publish. This is a true story, and some of my favorite novels now, were self-published, as some have moved on to Publishers, and some are still self-published, but it's just amazing and wonderful to know that self-publishing is an option, something to think about for me...in the near future... :)

Now, what about you?

P.S. Happy Holidays Everyone! :)

  2. Hey Great F&F! New Follower.

    Oh yay! Another movie and book fan! I have tons of reviews for movies that I need to get organized. What is your favorite genre of film? Mine is foreign horror/suspense!

    I know A LOT of indie authors, it's a hard road for them, but some have become quite successful!

    1. Thanks for following! My favorite film genre? Hmmm ahh you got me, I like so many; it depends on what I'm in the mood for I suppose! Foreign horror and suspense is fun! I took two world cinema courses in the past year, and it was so interesting to see those horror/suspense films from other countries :)

  6. I have learned so much! I didn't realize that there were these huge supportive communities of people going through some of the same challenges. Everyone on Book Blogs has been so helpful and encouraging! Specifically about the publishing industry? Competitiveness, timing and a good cover is a good recipe for success.

  15. I was aware of self publishing, but have learned so many things about it and have come to realize that there are some incredible books that are self pubbed. I love it when a great self published booked gets picked up by a larger publishing company and rereleased.
    Thanks for stopping by my FF.
