In the past, people might find out about good books from reading reviews in newspapers and magazines. Almost all of these were books from the big, traditional publishing houses.
Today, there's still some of that going on, but with the revolution in alternative publishing methods, people need reviews of books outside that system. How do you find the excellent books from independent and small-press writers?
That is being covered in large part by numerous book blogs, as evidenced in this article.
For example, my work was recently featured in three terrific blogs:
Morgen Bailey's Writing Blog
Mysteries and Margaritas
Do Some Damage
Writers find other writers and help get the word out to readers. What are your favorite blogs?
