What I’m reading: Stellarnet Rebel by J. L. Hilton (cyberpunk), The Toll-Gate by Georgette Heyer (Regency mystery romance)
(New feature! I decided to prefix all my posts with a line or two about “what I’m reading.” Help me remember this.)
Don’t worry! I’m not going to beat up on lurkers. I love lurkers. Before I decided to start blogging, I was a lurker, myself. Most frequently, I lurked on Kimber An’s blog. I admired her chutzpah. And now, she lurks around here, I think.
Anyway, I never commented. Ever. So I’ve been there. I’m not here to make you delurk. A loyal readership is always going to consist of those who comment and those who don’t, and those who don’t always vastly outnumber those who do, by a factor of 10 to 2, I think I read once.
I am here to express my appreciation. For all you readers who have stuck with me.
It’s been a rough couple of years since I published The Sevenfold Spell. Many of you started reading my blog when I was writing Debuts & Reviews — or even Fantasy Debut — and yet you’re still here even though I changed my blog focus. I have vanished for weeks on end, and you’re still here.
I try to show my appreciation in small ways. Those of you who keep commenting will eventually find yourselves on my “Longtime Readers” or “Author Buddies” blogroll. I just added Savannah Chase. Some people, like Chicory, I can’t add because they don’t ever link to a blog or a site. (I will be delighted to add her if she ever sends me a link.) When you leave a comment with a link, I try to jump over there and read it.
But I don’t know what to do for the rest of you except to keep writing more of the same. I thought about putting up post reaction so you could vote, but that just seemed like looking for attention. If you have any ideas, or would like to guest post (“Lurker deLurked!”) or just want to say hi, I am always an email away at tia dot nevitt at gmail dot com.
Anyway, thanks everyone!
