Linking Survey Insights to One Author’s Writing Plans via Historical Tapestry http://ow.ly/c9wO5 by Mary Tod
Mary’s survey points to some interesting findings. Now tell me, how do I fit Goodreads into my limited time? And women are huge readers of  historical fiction but they don’t like violence. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the romance in my Crusader knights novella will draw them in.

  1. Thanks, Char.I can’t believe you get to read so much and still write so well! I think readers will really enjoy your Crusaders. I do!

      Cathy, I try to give myself close to an hour a day to read blog posts or links from twitter. I usually do it when I’m just too tired to write or work on revisions. The problem still remains – I don’t tend to comment on the things I read very often. People will often follow a link to a commenter’s profile or blog and I bet that builds readership. That will be my goal in the future – more commenting!
