We Are For Sale Until May 31, 2009

The Annual Brenda Novak Auction ends tomorrow and with it the chance to advertise on Dear Author, an opportunity that is not offered to individual authors or publishers. The auction is here. The ad will appear on any month you desire in the sidebar to the right.

Dear Author is one of the top ranked blog on for traffic in the romance community at 122,882. In comparison is 115,197 and AAR is 169,739.

In the month of April, Dear Author had 112,278 unique visitors with an average of 9 pages viewed per visit for a total of 2,047,051 pages viewed in April.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and 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

    I think something is odd about those stats. According to Alexa, I get 73% of my visitors from Finland! Erm… no, I don’t.

    On topic … those are amazing stats (I can appreciate them a lot more this year!) for DA and well deserved. It is my only daily romance stop on the net. Thanks to Jane and the gang for contributing to a great cause.
