Now I have my part to play. Terry has asked me to put together a list of questions that UK bloggers would like to be answered by UK publishers. He has publishing people who are interested in working with us which is very nice indeed.
Are you a new or established blogger? Experienced or a novice? Have a question that you would like answered related to British book blogging? Let me know in the comments or email me if you're really shy and we'll get you those answers!
