Help! I need somebody…

Help!

…not just anybody!

This MA Publishing student is in need of help from all of you lovely bookbloggers, publishers and authors who may or may not stumble across this post.

I’m currently working on my 15,000 dissertation. I’m looking at the impact and influences of blog tours, what effect they have for author, publisher and blogger alike.

But that is only possible with you guys!

Is there anyone willing to give a gal a hand?

giphy

I’ve got a few questionnaires to send out, basically to understand what drives you to take part in a blog tour and what you get out of it. There may be some follow up questions depending on the answers and where the research takes me, but it shouldn’t take too long or impose on your day at all.

I’ve now got the go-ahead from uni to start collecting this data. I’m really excited about this project and what I might discover along the way. But I’m going to hit a brick wall if no one is prepared to answer a few questions about a topic which, I hope, already be a passion.

So whether you’re an author embarking on a blog tour, a publisher or tour company promoting one or a blogger trying to help out, please drop me a comment if you are able to help!

Please?

Book Reviews copy

Blood Bank 1

Blurb: Benjamin is a programmer moonlighting as a security guard at Dystopia, a seedy club that caters to the down-and-outs, the desperate, the addicts. He’s been building his reputation, saving for a way out – but when he rescues a young woman from the nearby estate, he may just have stepped too far out of line… 

Lucy is ordinary; a girl with a deadbeat boyfriend, a normal life and college studies. But when her world takes an odd twist, she starts to wonder about the people she’s meeting, the situations she’s in, the odd aversions and attacks happening around her. They’re just coincidences…aren’t they?

And Zack is in deep trouble. He’s losing his girlfriend, drowning in debt, and has dwindling job prospects – and that’s not the worst of it. His debt is to people who won’t ever forget it, and who want the things closest to Zack’s heart: his blood – and his life.

In the heart of Swindon, an ancient order hides in plain sight, spreading their influence through the streets like a disease. But despite their widespread power they are catching up with the modern world: the vampires are going online, and the Order is about to become more powerful than even they would have dreamed…Read More »
