I wrote a blog post last Sunday titled, "Marketing-It's Not Always About the Product (The Book). Interesting enough there was another blog about the same subject written last Sunday by Allison Brennan. Her blog debated what impact the quality of the writing has on marketing the book. It's a lengthy blog, but one you should definetly read. Here's the link: http://www.murderati.com/blog/2009/4/26/is-marketability-more-important-than-the-story.html
My brother George tackled the subject in his blog (Thoughts of a George):http://georgethewriter.blogspot.com/2009/04/sex-writing-and-new-cars.html
What do you think about the subject? What's more important: the writing or the marketability?
