The tour host is a fantastic lady who supports indie authors through her Facebook blog and other social media, and by hosting blog tours.
Not sure what a blog tour is? A blog tour is a virtual book tour for authors, in which a book is featured on numerous blogs over a specific period of time. You can read a little more about them on my post Book Blog Tours.
Before the tour, Natasha set up a Google form for blogs to sign up. A total of 54 blogs committed to promoting my book during the dates of the tour. I hope most of the do!
I created several different marketing materials for the tour, including a blog cover, several book teasers, and I also included basic information like the book description, an excerpt, and my author bio. I sent those over to Natasha, who sent them out to the list of blogs that committed to the tour.
I'll be visiting each blog this week that committed to the tour, and hopefully will see my book, so I can comment and share.
I'll post a follow up next week and share the successes (or failures) of this tour. I hope it is good news!
Authors, have you done a book tour? What has your experience been?
If you'd like to be featured on one of the blogs I manage, please contact me.
