  Billy's Answer

Only if I believe the author's novel is appropriate for my blog. If that's the case, I'd do a Q&A with the author or have the author guest post.

  1. It depends on if I know the author or am interested in their book. I mostly work with blog tour companies or author friends and don’t have a lot of time for authors I don’t know or haven’t interacted with

  2. I guess it would depend on the author and the book. If it's an author I know and have read from. Or if the book is something I want to read...that kind of thing. I feel like promo posts don't get too much attention these days. But I would happily do something like that if I thought people would read it.

    Here's my BBH

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I haven't had to turn one down for lack of time yet. But I'll be glad to have suggestions from other folks as to how I can do that when it happens.

  4. I also offer spotlight posts or guest posts, but I don't always offer it because the books aren't ones I would want to read myself. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

  5. Those alternatives are great ideas. Enjoy your day and weekend! :)
