With 2009, we want to hear what you'd like to see on our blog. Let us know what interests you. Would you like to see author interviews, book reviews, announcements, writing tips, juicy dirt on the authors...tell us! We won't know otherwise. Leave a comment between now and January 29th with your ideas. We'll draw winners then and post them here.

In the weeks to come, we'll have our Parker Publishing authors here...and speaking out. I can't wait! We'll be setting up more author chats and provide opportunities for you to get to know us all better...

I've already got this amazing book but I just wanted to say that I'm so excited about this blog and can't wait get started!

Jax Cassidy said...

Awwww, thank you! I can't wait to read your book when it's released later this year.

For those of you who don't know Abigail, she writes contemporary suspense for Parker Pub and I've had a sneak peek of her book THE CHOSEN ONE, which is fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by.

I would like to see excerpts and reviews. Author and character interviews. Links to authors' websites and myspace so readers can keep up with their works.

angie said...

what i would like to see if author interviews and reader interviews

Jax Cassidy said...

Amy, great request! We'll add that to the plate and we do plan on having juicy excerpts. We'll put ADULT CONTENT on the tag so people will know.

Angie, we'd love to have Reader interviews. We'll have to do some sort of reader spotlight once a month!

Great suggestions!

Selena Illyria said...

I would like to see character interviews and author hot seats. :-)

Dianna F said...

I would love to see interviews, excerts, character interviews are kewl too, anything that has to do with writing and how people work with their muse is always interesting to read.

Kelley Nyrae said...

Great suggestions everyone!

Jax Cassidy said...

Wow, we're getting awesome suggestions and we're sure going to incorporate them. I love the fact that our hero/heroines will have a voice and the consensus seems to be more interviews...but the most important thing is...we get to do a lot of giveaways whenever we feel like it. I think that's a great plus!

I like excerpts, they really help in my selection of what I want to read.
Also, photos, example, book covers,authors, hotties, locations, etc.
And, notice of any book signings.
I would like to read: Kelley Nyrae--PDF Unexpected Mr. Right, because I have read her excerpts on the after afterdark blog.
thanks
debbie

I'll add my voice to the interviews, excerpts and links.

It would also be great to add a little fun. Maybe a puzzle with a featured author's book cover on it.

Kelley Nyrae said...

Love the puzzle idea, Connie.

rolanda said...

I would like to see excerpts of current works and wip's, peer to peer author interviews, reviews, something like a writer's corner where the authors would give tips to the up and coming, schedule of promo's (chats, groups you will be on, book signings, etc)....Btw, Hey Kelley!! :-)

Cynthya said...

I agree that interviews are great. I am mainly interested in finding out about what books are coming out and deciding whether to put them on my wish list, so I appreciate excerpts and reviews. I also like behind the scenes info, like how an author got the idea behind the book, interesting things she found out while researching, what other authors she reads, etc. Good luck!

Kelley Nyrae said...

Hey, Rolanda! Thanks for stopping by.

rhonda said...

I enjoy many of the Parker authors.
I'd like to see seperate forums on different topics,excerpts,links to author websites,monthly featured authors and books.

Jax Cassidy said...

We're working on a forum and perhaps will get that implemented in the future.

Desirée Lee said...

How about... all of the above?

Author interviews and juicy tidbits are nice. I like to know more about the person behind the stories.

Carpe Noctem,

I'm still not too familiar with Parker Publishing except for Kelley Nyrae's Getting Lucky with Luciana, but I'm looking forward to finding out more about it and having more great books to choose from!

I'm really glad you all started a blog because that's the easiest way for me to keep up to date with new books these days.

kimmyl said...

I would like to see more excerpts on different genre of books. Some blogs focus a certain genre and stay there. I like variety and links to sites about authors or books.
I also love having chats where a group a authors visit and everyone readers and authors chat the day away about everything.

Excerpts and interviews are great, especially fun interviews with characters.
