Behind the Book Blog: Interview With the Lovely Lady of ‘Books, Vertigo and Tea’

To an author, especially one like me from a small press (The Travelers, Saguaro Books) without a huge marketing budget, book review bloggers are critical for success. They're also the gateway for readers to a world of undiscovered books. Book bloggers constantly reviews books, feature authors, write profiles on upcoming book events or materials.

Monday Blog: Blog Post Whiplash – I Can’t Keep Quiet

Blogs are a little tricky. I like so many great ones. That list would be very long and I may tackle compiling that some day soon.

The Real Deal About Art: Surprising Reasons You Should Support the National Endowment for the Arts

I recently went to the San Francisco ballet and wrote a blog about it. What I didn't mention in that blog was that right after the ballet ended, we headed over to a protest across the street. And in the sea of black ink on poster board, I realized something important was missing...
