Welcome to my weekly meme Tell Me Something Tuesday where I ask you something and you tell me the answer!! It’s as simple as that and I thought it would be a great way for all of us bloggers to get to know one another! So this is how it works: I post a question here on my blog and then i give my answer. I invite all the bloggers to take the question and post it on their blog with their answer and we can hop around and see what everyone says! If you are a blogger don’t forget to leave your link at the bottom of this post! If you aren’t a blogger – that’s okay too!! Leave your answer in the comments section!
Tell Me Something:
How long is too long between book releases?
This is an interesting question because I hear all the time from readers (and I say it sometimes too!) that it is NO fun to read a book you really really love then have to wait an entire year for the next book. It stinks and sometimes it makes me mad. It’s hard to get excited about a really good book and fall in love with characters only to have to wait forever for more.
There are a lot of times that I have read a book, loved it and waited so long for the next one that I have forgotten what happened in the first book. And because I am so busy I don’t want to go back and re-read it just to read the next one. Sometimes, I forget why I was so excited about the book to begin with. That’s sad I know. It makes me sad too bc I am missing out on awesome reads. For example, Hush Hush. I read the first book, loved it and by the time the next ones were out I had forgotten Hush Hush and then got too busy to re read them all. I will pick them up eventually – but in all honesty if the sesond had come out faster I would have read them already.
Then there are the times I wait and wait and wait then rush and get the next book only to be disappointed. 🙁 No good either. But I think that’s another TMST post. 🙂
So what length between books do I think is good? Personally I think 6 months is a good distance between. Yes, that is a while but books do take a lot of time to put together, LOL. I think we readers forget that sometimes. I don’t think i ever appreciated the work that goes into a book until I wrote one, LOL.
That is one of the good things about Indie publishing – is the ability to put the books out faster. With traditional publishing (the big publishing houses) books can take anywhere from a year or even two years to come out! That’s forever! But that can be a good thing too I suppose because the book gets lots of attention and is a quality read.
Anyway, my fonal answer is 6 months. But I have waited longer and will again for the books I really love, 🙂
Can’t wait to hear what you think!
Before you go grab next week’s question:
It’s already September! What book releases are you looking forward to this fall?
