Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Reading, Writing & Publishing ~

Readers’ Reprise

This blog’s subtitle is “Reading, Writing, and Publishing”.

And, even though the most recent results of our Survey show Reading with only 6.25% of the vote for topics on this blog, I thought it was time for, at least, a short recap of some of the things said here about Reading and Readers.

The post, Book Bloggers ~ Just for The Love of It :-), has this quote:

““Book bloggers love to read books and to recommend them to their own followers. There are scores of avid bloggers in every genre, out there reviewing thousands of books and interviewing hundreds of authors every year. They do this for pleasure, and are a very diverse crowd…”

It also has links to places to find Book Bloggers.


The post, What Kind of Feedback Do Writers Need? What Helps Them Most?, begins with a bit of out-of-date info on how to get your name and bio in my book. Well, the book is already published :-) But there’s also a discussion on what writers need from readers and what readers can learn about what they have to offer writers. There’s also a great list of quotes about “criticism”.

In the post, Do You Write For The Reader or Should You Write For Yourself?, I do a bit of exploration of what I call the Meta-Reader–the reader inside the author

I will write more posts about Reading and Readers but I thought I’d let new folks discover these four posts and, hopefully, have a few regulars re-discover them :-)

    Thanks for mentioning the message board again, Alexander! As you know, my database was down for a couple of days and I temporarily lost the board and my blog. This might sound strange but I felt like I was floating out on an island all by myself. Even if I don’t spend a lot of time on the board on any given day, I always know I can go there to connect with people who love words as much as I do. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to connect with some of the best writers, as well as the most thoughtful readers. Thank you, my friend, for being one of those readers/writers who keeps me sane. :)

    Of course, that’s providing we loosely definite ‘sane’. Ha! :)
