There has been much chatter on Twitter lately about the need for publishers to understand bloggers, how we work, and our needs to help further their needs. Rebecca at A Book Lady’s Blog has taken the chatter one step further and decided to do something about it. In an effort to further blogger/publisher relations, she along with Brett Sandusky of Kaplan Publishing created the first ever Book Blogger Survey. The goal is to take the results, ask similar questions to publishers, and start an open dialogue between the two groups. The end result is to improve publicity tours, raise awareness of the importance of book blogs to publicity, and hopefully come to a mutual understanding on the power of the book blogs to marketing campaigns. Please take some time to check out Rebecca and Brett’s introduction and please take the survey. Your answers are greatly appreciated!
