Bob Collopy (bobcollopy) | 11 comments Do you review and talk about books online? If so you can help the book community!

I am currently working on my graduating thesis for school. For my thesis I am helping mainly indie authors understand the book market. Due to all the changes with with the book world, authors are no longer sure what their readers want and solving this problem has become quite complex.

By filling out this short questionnaire you would be giving me data which would help me solve this problem, which in the end could mean better books for you!

YEAAAA!!



Please help!

Your url is incorrect.

I've also moved this into the promotional area, so that the group's not swamped with author-focussed "cries for help".

I was going to do the survey, but the questions seem to assume that book reviewers want to be contacted by authors to review their books. Speaking for myself, I would rather they didn't. I don't see that option anywhere in the survey though.

Bob Collopy (bobcollopy) | 11 comments For question 1, you can answer no that you don't read books from authors. If you answer no, then that invalidates whatever answer you put for many of the questions between 2 and 9.

(If you put no for question 1, then it will 0 out your answer on question 2)

After those questions, I get into different subjects about books.

Okay. Answering "no" to Qu1 (Have you ever read a book that the book's author asked you to read and review?) is a bit different to saying "I prefer authors not to send me unsolicited review requests", though.

The last question on the survey states:

"Is there any other medium you would like an author to contact you? If you do not like authors contacting you then you can state "none.""

This may not be exactly what you pointed out, but the data will be interpreted within the same realm due to the nature of my thesis.

Hope that helps!

Bob Collopy (bobcollopy) | 11 comments I want to thank everyone who has taken my survey.

I am really happy to see the response my survey has gotten. Almost 200 people have already taken it. With everyone's help, my thesis now has much better information and far more credible.

This has really enabled me to better the book world by helping authors better develop and promote their books in a responsible way. And i could not be doing it without all of you!



Thanks so much!!!!!!



If you haven't taken the survey, it'll remain open for a few more weeks. More people taking the survey can only make the findings better!



If you want to get a summary of my findings you can subscribe to my newsletter on my site: (I don't send out much)
