How do you want it?

Here is your opportunity to tell me what to do. Come on, you know you want to.

imagesย Tell me what you want, and I will give it to you…

within reason…

Did that sound sexy? I put out my pouty lip and tried for the head flip, but I banged my head on the cabinet behind me and almost knocked myself out. So much for sexy. On to the point in this post. I don’t want to bore you with posts you don’t want to see in your readers or email so….


Readful Things is and has always very much been a participant related blog. Obviously one of the main focuses of this blog is book reviews and that will not change, but I also want to give the audience a chance to speak and tell me what you want to see more of.

Wednesdays are filled by the Mirror Interviews, so that day is good. The book reviews will remain, but what else would you like to see? Here are some options:

More author interviews with both traditional and indie authors

giveaways for free merchandise and books

personal posts (we know I don’t actually ever really post much that is personal, but humour me.)

Poetry related posts

writing and topics on the craft posts

guest blogs from industry professionals

travel and photo posts

book discussions

random humour

video links for upcoming films

opinion pieces (from me and others)

me dancing naked in bunny slippers (Wait..don’t run away, I just wanted to make sure that you were paying attention.)

I meant panda slippers

Anything else you think might be interesting for this blog and relate to books, writing, screenplays, promo of authors, etc. please feel free to mention. I may not use all suggestions but I am always happy to consider.

Also, tomorrow will be a really interesting post from a non reader—sounds weird, I know, about what would make him buy a book. I figure if we can figure out how to make a non reader read then there is hope for sales from the masses of others out there who do.

Opinions please.

  1. Boy, nothing like asking the easy questions! I think you should expect an email on this issue. However, without a doubt, a dancing video in a bunny slip is never a bad idea…hope I got that right! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Book reviews are always a winner as well as advice from industry professionals. Personally, I love anything to do with editing. I’m always on the look out for ideas and advice on how to make my manuscript sparkling clean…well, okay, maybe not completely clean lol It never hurts to throw in some Panda slippers. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  3. Industry professional posts and craft posts sound interesting. Though all of those sound great. Can’t really think of anything to add since that covers so much. Would you do anything that involves cover artists or other non-author players in the publishing world?


    1. That’s kind of what I was thinking, under industry pros. It would be good to get in deeper than just the authors and reviewers. Maybe some screen writers and pr people too.


      1. Screen writers would be great since I know a lot of people are curious about how books are turned into movies and shows. What is the process and how do you choose what to keep and toss? Demographics and all of that stuff that denotes a change of medium. Same for movies and shows being turned into books.


      2. Hmmm. Guess asking if they would be interested in a post, interview, or Q&A to help those who are interested in the field. Though I’d be blundering around if I tried to ask.


      1. I like to see posts about all of the industry professionals around authors. The editors, book cover image artists, the whole gamut. Even as independents, there’s a host of other industry professionals who make up the team.


  4. I think your posts ought to captue some of the wacky fun we used to have. Sure have a few serious days of content tight pore, but then some of the good stuff and invite paricipation in things like 20word story, goofy definitions, best embarrassing story, worst time of your life story. best selfie, worst grade in school.
