I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. Ms. Drozdowich has done a wonderful job of taking all of the questions I have ever had about approaching a book blogger and plopped them all into one very well written book. Through the use of research (I’m a scientist so I like this aspect very much) and her own experiences as a book blogger, this book was born. Ms. Drozdowich has now become an author and I’m sure that by utilizing her own advice she’ll rise to the top of the book charts. She breaks down how to approach a book blogger by telling us what they like and don’t like, which is pertinent information for us authors. If you’re a new author, get this book, it will guide and light your now darkened path. For older authors who need an extra tip or two on how to get into the good graces of book bloggers, then this book is for you, too.

I read Barb's book as part of her blog tour. As a writer, I was excited to get it! Authors are always eager to garner those coveted bloggers to review their books. Right away, I was taken by Barb's easy, friendly style. It was obvious that she knew what she was talking about. Barb speaks frankly and with great practicality as to what the author needs to do to stand out from that dreaded "slush pile."  Barb's book is short and to-the-point. I highly recommend it to authors across the genres.

I attended the Decatur Book Festival this year. One of the discussions was a panel discussion on Book Reviews. This panel included professional authors and professional reviewers. I attended the discussion and asked one question during the Q and A at the end. I also mentioned that I am a Book Review Blogger. One of the reviewers told the people asking questions they needed to come see me and see how I the Book Blogger could help them. What these authors really needed is to check out Barb Drozdowich’s book Author’s Guide to working with Book Bloggers. I unfortunately could not help all those authors who came to see me that day, but Barb can offer some great suggestions. This novel is about twelve chapters. Barb used a survey of all of us Book Bloggers to help give guidance to the authors we are likely to work with. This survey is included in at the end of the book. The main topics covered are: How to select a Book Blogger How to contact a Book Blogger How to write a Guest Post, Interview, or Promotional post. How to then promote those posts once up on a Book Blogger’s website. My advice is it is best to read this book as an ebook because there are some interactive elements. You can read it as a paperback but you may want to refer to the internet with the websites mentioned in the book. by Jencey Gortney/Writer'sCorner
