Speaking of marketing and the power of authors, you may be interested in a new website set up by a group of us blogging authors:

Bookarazzi is the public face of BloggersWithBookDeals, a group of published writers / artists who spend half our lives on the internet.
There are almost 50 of us, and our books range from surreal comedy to commercial women’s fiction to graphic novels and disgusting recipes. This is where we come to pool our collective abilities and provide stuff for you to read and use.
Whether you’re a budding writer, a bored net surfer or are just feeling nosy, there should be something for you.

Oh, and we might plug our books occasionally too.
Check us out and let us know what you think:

actually it sounds kind of obnoxious-- and I mean that in the nicest possible way, because you seem very nice and I wouldn't want to insult you. But I see two problems with this project: a, it's kind of insensitive to bloggers who DON'T have book deals, and who therefore will have little interest in listening to you all gloat about your own, especially considering: b, there is the implication that some of these bloggers would have never even gotten book deals without their blogs, and so why should we bother reading about their writing process or care about their books?

again, this is not meant to sound snarky, just bewildered. and the only reason I leave it anonymously is because I know personally some of the members of BWBD.

Er, um... I don't really know what to say to that (and I did ask).
