If you have any questions, leave 'em in the comments! I've been blogging for over 2 years, so I have a bit of experience. 😉

A video for authors explaining what book bloggers are and what they do with a few tips for working with them to help promote your book.

My name's Alissa Grosso, and I've been an awkward author since 2011, though I've been just plain awkward for far longer than that. You can find out more about me at my website http://alissagrosso.com

  • LibraryGirlKris says:

    Great tips, definitely agree about interacting with other bloggers!
    I really love when people write honest reviews and most of the time you can tell if they actually believe what they write because it comes across as genuine and not false. 🙂

    I have been going to different sighings and I love it when I run in to a fellow blogger. If they didn't have vlogs I wouldn't have known who they were and I would have missed out on some really cool book moments. I talk to a lot of them now on twitter so I can keep up with them and what they are doing in the book world.

I mean where else can i gush about the weird amount of charecters named Sam i love (especialy in incarnate and Wolves of Mercy falls)

    Nice tips! I'm fairly new. And…your twitter link on your blog is broken or something.

  • Zenia V says:

    I recently started a book blog (yesterday), and I'd love feedback so I can keep growing. I only have one review up, and a bit about myself. I would love for you to check it out!

    It won't let me comment with a web address here, so:

  • Dion7 says:

    I'm planning to start my own blog soon, but I'm still wondering whether I should write it in my native language or in English. I'm just hoping that with a blog I can achieve what I want: not just for people to read my reviews, but to get discussions going. I see a lot of blogs where it's just a review with a couple of comments complementing it. I don't want it to be one sided, but to be able to start a conversation.

    600 YEARS AGO TODAY.
    "Keep your heads, lads, and nock a bodkin," William called out. "There is Lord Erpingham. Now we will provoke the French into moving." The old knight strode quickly out in the field in front of the line where all could see him. He tossed a baton high in the air to draw the attention of all the archers.
    "Now strike!" The old knight bellowed at the top of his lungs.
    In unison, five thousand archers muscled bow cords to their ears and launched arrows high in the air toward the French lines. It was a long shot, so the high-arching arrows took several seconds to ascend before they started their deadly fall to earth. Hedyn could see a faint shadow that drifted across the wheat field created by the mass of five thousand feathered missiles. Like a great flock of starlings, he thought.
    Before the first arrows began to thud into men and horses and to clang against armor, the archers were sending more arrows on their way, each man shooting at his own pace. Within a minute, 60,000 arrows were in the air or scattered across the battlefield. Some in dirt, some in men.
    The arrow storm had its intended effect. Trumpets sounded, drums thumped, and the French line finally came to life.
    "We are in for it now, lads," William said to no one in particular.
    Mounted knights appeared on each side of the French formation, as the main line of armored men on foot began to move forward. The heavy armor and thick mud made them seem slow and clumsy.
    "Put your arrows on the cavalry, lads. They will try to break our archers on the flanks," the ventenar instructed. "Help our mates on the flanks. Broadheads into horse flesh. If a horse goes down, the knight will go too." Hedyn hated to see the horses killed, but he knew that the highly trained animals were as much a weapon as the lances and swords that each of the knights pointed at his comrades.
    From where he stood near the center of the line, Hedyn watched in awe as the French cavalry thundered toward the English flanks on either side of him. The air behind each of the big coursers filled with clods as pounding hoofs splattered the black mud.
    The archers did not falter behind their wooden stakes but poured the bodkins and broadhead arrows into the mass of horses and men. Some began to fall as arrows found chinks in armor or were embedded in screaming horses. Some slowed and galloped back as it became too perilous near the archers and their stakes. A few stalwarts made it to the line of bowmen and discovered that the horses slowed or stopped, refusing to gallop into the protective barricade of stakes. These men were pulled from their mounts and killed by swarms of angry archers.
    One man, a great nobleman in the finest armor, tumbled from his horse headlong as the animal impaled itself on a stake. Even from where Hedyn stood, the splash of red blood stood out on the bleak, muddy field. The man never had a chance to rise from his fall, killed where he lay.
    Panicked war-horses, some rider-less, crashed back through the oncoming French line, sending men-at-arms tumbling and scattering to make way. The line slowed, but regrouped and slogged on through the mud.
    The French line began to change. It became bunched and irregular. The French knights instinctively crowded to the center to avoid the deadly arrows streaming from the English flanks. The archers stood behind their stakes and shot as fast as arrows could be nocked. The visibility of King Henry's banners at the center of the line reinforced this movement toward the center. The French knights were not disciplined enough to remain where the battle plan required. The line slowly transformed into a blunt wedge, which only presented more targets to the busy archers. The crowding made it much more difficult to wield lances and swords.
    "Shoot, shoot! Pour it on, lads! Pour it on!" William screamed in a voice that Hedyn had never heard before. It seemed a mixture of terror, excitement, and merriment, almost like the voice of a boy involved in some risky prank. The arrows at the men's feet were long gone, and now each man shot the arrows in the extra bundles that Hedyn delivered before the fight. One hundred and twenty thousand arrows were gone, and still the French came.
