Question?

With most authors having a newsletter and various book websites offering daily news about discount books, a person can be bombarded with emails. There are also endless blogs to read, not to mention social media. It takes time to get through it all and you can imagine the time it takes to keep up on it all for an author.

I’m wondering what you, as a reader, finds most helpful in keeping up with a favorite author. Do you look forward to author newsletters? Do you read author blogs? Do you visit author websites? Do you follow authors on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)? Do you frequent Goodreads? Do you join your favorite authors’ private Facebook groups?  I must say that I do enjoy reaching out to you as I do in my email/newsletter. I feel more like I’m corresponding with friends. So if this type of engagement is high on your list do let me know.

I’d be ever so grateful if you could consider the questions I’ve posed and let me know what is most helpful to you in keeping up with your favorite authors. And for taking time out of your own busy day to do me this favor, when you leave your response in the comment box, you’ll be entered to win a $25.00 Amazon Gift Card. I’ll pick the winner May 1st.  

5/5 CONGRATS TO THE WINNER OF THE AMAZON GIFT CARD… M. MORTON!

AND TO EVERYONE WHO RESPONDED TO MY QUESTIONS… YOU ARE THE BEST! IT HAS BEEN A BIG HELP TO ME!

Hugs

Donna

Email works best for me. I do visit your website off and on and I also follow authors on Facebook. But receiving your email is best especially when you are releasing new books.

Donna, I always look forward to your emails/newsletter! I’m a very busy woman and don’t have time to look at all the social media out there. It would take too much of my time to delve into such things and besides it would rob me of my reading time. I love your work and will support you however I can.

I love receiving and reading your newsletters. I visit author websites and use Goodreads on a regular basis. I do not use Twitter or Instagram. And this is the first time for me to blog!. Thank you so much for all the great stories you have shared with us, historical romance readers! I am especially excited about your new series, Highland Intrigue! The prequel was great!

I read newsletters from authors like you whose books I read regularly. Others I skim. I go to your website to see what new books may have been released.

I like receiving your emails. I don’t always have time to go and look up things on other sites, so the emails work perfectly for me.

I enjoy your writing and appreciate your asking for your readers’ feedback in a narrative rather than a survey. I am probably an exception to the rule, but I don’t follow blogs or spend a lot of time on websites because my day is so full of obligations. I am sorry I can’t be of help in this. All I can say is that I only look to see what the next book is titled and look forward to reading it.

I keep up with my favorite authors mostly by their newsletters/emails. Sometimes I will go to the web site if I’m looking for book order or to see if there are books I missed. The only thing I use goodreads and bookbub for are posting reviews.

Hi Donna, if I haven’t told you lately, I love reading your books. In truth I love reading period pieces set in Scotland. So yes, I love and read lots of of other authors books set in mid evil Scotland. I mostly would love to hear about upcoming projects that you’re working on and what’s coming out soon as well as where you draw your inspiration. I imagine it can be difficulty for an author who writes so many books not to make the characters sound the same. So for me, other than knowing you’re doing well busy at your… Read more »

I really enjoy when an author has a private Facebook group to join, I find I receive the most updates this way and they can be really fun! I’ll also sign up for emails and follow on goodreads as well.

I often will read the newsletters the authors send along with stalking them on social media. I enjoy reading all their posts as well as those who comment or contribute. Having an author answer my emails or posts is a high for me. I admit I’m a fan girl when they do. ❤️😄

Hi Donna, I enjoy getting your newsletter and particularly look forward to news of new book releases etc. I don’t particularly want the newsletters I receive to bother taking space recommending books. I don’t follow blogs, Face Book, or any other social media and I don’t really bother with Goodreads. I visit author websites directly, including your website often to check out the reading order of series, read what you are doing or are working on, and to see what is new or newsworthy. I am Canadian, have a Kindle with over 1500 books on it, and purchase all of… Read more »
