Results from the Does Sex Sell Survey

The results were not surprising. Most who participated on this blog, the NOP blog and several other loops felt sex does draw in some readers but in the end the story is more important. Though most participants were writers, you need to keep in mind that writers are voracious readers. Here are the results:

  86. Interesting, Marian! Not exactly what I expected, either.

  87. Interesting to see the outcome. I wouldn’t have expected some of these,
    but it does demonstrate what a diverse group readers (and writers) are.
    Cheers, Kelly
