This week's question is: What have you learned from book blogging that you didn’t know before about the publishing industry?

MY ANSWER: Hmm...tough one. I guess the constant changes that can be made with books. Their covers, release dates, deciding to end series... The wonderful thing called ARCs!

I can't really think of much.


  1. Yeah! This was a tough one.
    I had to give it some thought before I constructed my response.

    Thanks for stopping by :D

  2. ARCS are great. I hope to go back to BEA next year. I loved all of the ARCs. Fortunately, I live in NJ so it is easy for me to go in each day.

  3. Cover changes...I didn't think of that!

  12. I had forgotten about the release date changes, and recently I learned no to trust goodreads as much with release dates, they get it wrong every now and then.

  13. I learned most of what I know by publishing myself, but it was a steep learning curve, that's for sure. I'm still baffled by a lot of it to be honest, but getting out there and doing it yourself is one way to learn things in a hurry.

    Here's my FF post!

  17. ARCs, nice one! Gotta love those! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Old follower~

  18. Ah, nothing I hate more than a release date changing...unless it's being moved closer! :)

    Old follower...happy holidays!

  19. I didn't realize they would just change book covers for a trilogy or series in the middle of it before. That's not my favorite thing I've learned, lol.

    Old follower - Thanks for stopping by Book Sojourner!

  20. yep, indeed those ARCs were cool to learn about :)

  21. EXACTLY. I didn't even know that book covers may be temporary. Pretty blog and I'm a new follower. :)

  22. Great point, book publishing seemed much less hectic before I started actually paying attention!
