I've been meaning to talk about Follow the Reader for a couple of weeks now, the wonderful Netgalley-sponsored book industry blog that's being co-written by publishing veteran Charlotte Abbott and digital marketing guru Kat Meyer.
Last week Charlotte did an amazing interview with PW contributing editor and notable book industry journalist Bethanne Patrick. On Friday afternoons, at 4:00 Eastern Time, Charlotte and Kat also host a great live-Twitter chat about the book industry. (You can follow along by using the #followreader hashtag at monitter.com or hashtag.org.)
This week, Kat interviewed yours truly, in an interview where I admit publicly to stealing books as a second grader and also to not being able to learn my times tables. (I blame Catholic school.) We also talked a lot about the book industry and publishing and why y'all should just stop complaining about Dan Brown and Stephenie Meyer already! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.
