About the Author:

Barb Drozdowich is a book blogger and author coach in all things internet and blog. She uses everyday language that is easy to understand to explain how book promotion works on the internet and has several books published and more in the making about the topic.

Honey Bees in the book:

I think this book is brilliant as it is short, gives you easy to understand explanations and many, many useful tips on how to approach book blogs and bloggers. It also advises you well on what to make your mind up about when you decide to use book blogs as a promotional tool for your book. It is logically structured and gives you an overview of book blogs and book bloggers, in general, about queries, giveaways, interviews, cover reveals and much more.
However, I am a book blogger myself so much of her information is already known to me. I have to say though that all suggestions and tips are down to earth and spot on. Barb Drozdowichhas did a survey of fellow book bloggers to find a broader basis for her guide. I doubt you can go wrong if you follow her advice. You certainly would find a spot on my blog if you use her tips and guidance.
And she made me aware of Google Alerts, which I didn’t know yet, and it already has helped me. So thank you very much Barb!

Stinging Bees in the book:

What I am going to write now is not really a stinging bee rather something to keep in mind: The readership this book is aimed for are those authors who have no idea yet about how blogs and the internet works. If you as an author are a blogger yourself then a lot in this book is already known to you. Yes, I know I repeat myself a little here but better safe than sorry.

And the mead of it all?

This book is a must if you are an author looking into promoting your book via blogs and have no idea how they or the internet work. If you are a blogger, much of the information is known to you but it still gives you some more ideas on how to make your blog a better place for authors. All in all a great read and excellent guide!
