Thursday Thoughts on Book Tours

Today I am visiting Long and Short Reviews. I hope you'll stop by and read an interview about my writing - and leave a comment for the chance to win a beautiful Celtic necklace.

Today's post at Long and Short Reviews is about a Day in the Life of p.m.terrell. It's the first time I've been asked to write about a typical day and I enjoyed writing my answer.

I am enjoying these Virtual Book Tours because I find each blogspot and each host has different questions for me or a varied list of topics for me to write a guest post. Their questions make me think and they also take me in directions I would never think to go on my own.

New authors often think it's all about their book. Even the largest publishers will say it's about the book.

But it really isn't.

Once a reader finds a writer they enjoy, they will usually purchase anything that author writes - until the writing is no longer as good or as entertaining as it once was.

I find myself doing the same thing. Once I find an author I enjoy, I will download any eBook they write, even if it takes me a few months to get around to reading it. It often doesn't matter what they wrote, what the plot entails or which characters they introduce. I know if they are a good writer, I will enjoy whatever they've put in front of me.

Which authors do you buy based on the author name alone?
