I can’t believe that in 3 hours, no one has had any questions for my guest author, M.J. Rose and the Virtual Book Tour. Let me point this out… if you ask an interesting question, you get a FREE BOOK! A really good book too! Free! Just for asking a question!

Come on, you know you want a free book. Leave your questions on the other post.

Okay, here’s a question for MJ. You know a lot about the publishing business, so can you tell me who gave us the term “chick-lit”? Do you know what qualifies a book/writer for that classification? Is it sufficient to have a female protagonist and to be a female author to be designated as such? Has anyone referred to your books “chick-lit”, and if so, have you been tempted to punch them out?

(That’s a lot of questions, actually.)

MJ what do you think of blogs? What role do they play in helping authors of all levels to promote their book(s)? Are there any instance that you are aware of where a blog might or has been a negative factor?

I have never read the book, thought I think now that I should, but by looking at her list of authors she seems to be influence by very arty influences. So basically I wanted to know if there was a particular piece of art that had affected her writing in any way?

I will be passing the rest of the questions on to M.J., I was unable to send them to her earlier as I was offline.

Irfan, I don’t think she will be much help to you, since she doesn’t have a blog of her own. Meanwhile, from a long-term blogger’s perspective, I would say that you have to give in to the friend’s wishes. Reference them by an initial or a nickname, but do not mention their first name on your blog. Just because you’re ok with it doesn’t mean they have to be ok with it too.
