I saw this article all over twitter http://jezebel.com/homme-de-plume-what-i-learned-sending-my-novel-out-und-1720637627
and aside from being upset for all the women writers I know
what the hell!
I do not look at the name of the author when looking for books to read
Here is what usually happens
someone on twitter recommends a book
I go to Amazon and look
if I like the summary I buy it
WHAT?? you mean all that money spent on advertising and street teams and I do not pay attention to any of it?
I like to see things by authors I trust ones I have enjoyed in the past
I also like to read things from new authors recced to me by friends
OR if I am over on Netgalley looking for books this is the order
Cover catches my eye
then I request it
SO tell me people
How do you choose?
Leave me a comment here or on Facebook I would make a poll but Im lazy
