Authors: Get Bloggers to Promote Your Book
By Scott Lorenz
As a book publicist I reach out to many people to read and review my client’s books. That is why I work with dozens of Book Bloggers as they like to read books and interview authors for their blogs.
Some bloggers have tens of thousands of followers and can change an author’s life by covering their book.
The key is to find the right bloggers who are interested in your genre. Blogs tend to generate a dedicated following with certain blogs sending some authors right to the best seller ranks.
Here’s a list of book bloggers I compiled. Some may want to conduct an author interview; some will review your book and some will do both. Find the ones that are a good fit and follow their instructions for contacting them.

You can also search for bloggers who interview authors by typing keywords such as “list of book bloggers” or “blogger author interviews.” If you want to track down a certain audience, you can be more specific with your Internet search and search phrases like “young adult fiction book blog.”
The Bottom line: Find bloggers to interview you about your work is but one ‘arrow in the quiver’ of a book marketing strategy and one that can lead to new fans, book publicity and increase in book sales.
