Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we wil answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact.
This week’s question –

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

Wow, how to answer this one? Really I think the big thing I've learned is how much of a community it all is, and how large and complex.  Before blogging I thought an author wrote a book, found a publisher and bam, it landed on the shelf magically, but there is soooooo much more to it than that.   I don't think I really appreciated how much work went into the whole process.  I/we are thrilled to be part of that process even if only in the tiniest way.  I have been a huge reader my entire life and books enrich that life so much - I can't imagine what I'd do without them.  Kudos to everyone who is involved in getting those magical volumes onto the shelf - or into my reader.

  1. Even knowing that a lot of work goes into publishing a book, I bet I would still be surprised if someone sat me down and explained every little thing that had to happen before that book ended up on the shelf.
