While visiting NCIBA I had the pleasure of attending a blogger panel where a few key subjects were broached. Among the topics discussed:
Interrelations with independent book sellers and their local book blogger's.
Blogger etiquette when approaching publishers/authors for books and receiving book review queries.
Blog Tours and Independent publishers.
Along with the informative advice offered all the blogger's in attendance told everyone how they started blogging and what they do to attract followers and how they like to promote their favorite reads. It was also great that a few book sellers, publishers and authors (Katherine Longhore, Talia Vance) also came to give some of their input. I really enjoyed attending and meeting up with fellow bloggers. I like the fact that we are very supportive of one another and how we all have are so passionate about the books we love. That proved to be very true when we were able to attend the exibit room floor. It was like Christmas and we talked to all the reps and discussed upcoming books with them. I wanted to thank Bookalicious Pam and the NCIBA for making it all possible. I was also very fortunate to meet debut authors Veronica Rossi and Cory Jackson. I would say that it was a great day.
