The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Do you post your reviews before publication day or wait until close to or on publication date?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
I try to post ARC reviews around the publication date. Usually within a week before or a week after and some get posted on the publication date – it just depends on how my schedule is looking since I try to give each review it’s own post and I prefer to only post once per day. I read somewhere that this is the time period considered optimum for promoting books, but then others say on or after publication date. I’m mostly in this area.
Currently, I’m working very hard (by showing great restraint) in keeping time in my schedule to read the many books I have bought. In those cases, the reviews will just be posted as I finish and my calendar allows.
