Thanking our advertisers

This year we have 8 advertisers a month and the advertisers help us to pay for hosting fees, postage, giveaways and the like.   I just want to say thanks and use a once a month post to thank them for their sponsorship of Dear Author:

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    It’s all advertising tailored to our interests, so yay for sponsors! I don’t have a feeling that you are selling out to “the man” in your reviews and as long as the advertisers can live with that, it’s a win-win situation.

    I’m a person that normally hates advertising, but the sponsors that you have on here have more than once enticed me to their websites. It’s tailor made for readers of the blog, and I think it’s a great idea! I’m glad that it helps to keep this blog running smoothly :)

    I agree that the ads on this blog never feel intrusive, and have led me to discover new books and authors.

    I always run No Script and Adblock. But this is one of the few sites I turn off AdBlock for.

    BTW, those Maya Banks ads a while back, were really, really distracting. Damn the pretty shirtless men!

    Thanks for the comments, guys. I appreciate the feedback on the ads. I know it can be intrusive and we don’t want that nor do we want anyone to think we aren’t selling out our opinions (you can check the archives for the Goodnight Tweetheart review if you want to reassure yourselves).
