I know a lot of bloggers feel like they've been taking some heat lately...Hearing they have no impact on sales, don't help promote novels... I'm one author who absolutely believes in the power of the blogosphere. 100%. The blogosphere is connecting my books with the appropriate readership...and is allowing me to have the kind of relationships with my readers I never thought, when I sold A BLUE SO DARK, would actually be possible (I didn't know the YA Book Blogging Community existed when I sold BLUE).

One example of a blogger helping to promote my books (and a reader I'm glad to have gotten to know) is Gabrielle at The Mod Podge Bookshelf. She's running my latest interview, in which I dish on my first job and where I'd love to be today, if not for writing (but...really. Come on. Who am I kidding? Like I wouldn't be writing. Holly not writing is like Holly not eating...)

And stay tuned for my interview at The Story Siren next week, in which I'll do some weighing in on the positive impact I see bloggers making on my work...


  1. Thanks so much for that post! We, bloggers appreciate all the support authors give us. It is truly appreciated. :-)

  2. Nice post, thank you. Joseph of the Joseph's Reviews blog.

  3. They do make a difference. I get many recs from reading book blogs.

  4. I get most of my own book recs online,too! Love bloggers. LOVE.
