Two weeks ago I went on a cyber journey into the world of blog tours. I learned how comment, reply, re-tweet, re-blog, advertise and post. I was excited when my ‘starter kit’ arrived and it was much easier than I thought it would be. There was a question/answer form, a fun article prompt, biography and list of all my author pages, website, FaceBook and Twitter links.
I watched and waited, nervous. Then a whirlwind week of hours on the computer! The following bloggers hosted Windswept Hearts and did an awesome job – http://myseryniti.wordpress.com/ – https://twitter.com/pandorapoikilos – http://wefancybooks.blogspot.com/
I found that it gave me much needed exposure, more confidence, and traffic on my book. I met new authors and found some really neat books to read this winter. I will definitely be doing this again.
If you have ever thought about doing a virtual book tour, may I suggest Orangeberry? They have many different promotional packages as well as blog tours. Their next virtual book tour will be Orangeberry Big Bang, running from Jan 2nd to the 31. Sign up deadline is Dec 3rd, 2012. Check it out! http://www.orangeberrybooktours.com/
My thanks to Pandora Poikilos for all her work in organizing and tweeting!
