Book Tours – ready, steady, go…

As I am sure many of you know, I am about to embark on a very exciting series of virtual book tours, across a few of my titles. A few people have asked me exactly what a virtual tour is, so I thought I would blog about it, as there is far too much involved to cover it all in a FB post.

A virtual book tour is very basically a tour of your book on the internet. You don’t physically travel, but you are hosted by well-known bloggers, who are primarily readers.

A tour can last anything from a week to three months, usually with 1-2 stops a day. Each stop is hosted by a different blogger, and depending on the host, a number of different posts could feature, such as:

  •  Book review
  • Author Interview
  • Character Interview (this one is quite fun, actually!)
  • Book Trailer
  • Guest Blog (the author writes a guest blog for the host’s website)
  • Book Excerpt
  • Character Outlines
  • Dream Movie Cast
  • Music Playlist

The list is endless, but it is all good fun, and requires a lot of hard work to put together.

My tour dates are:

  • The Traveler 19th May-16th June 2014
  • Rainfall 16th June-27th June 2014
  • The Traveler 23rd June – 23rd July 2014
  • AND The Legacy Blog Tour: a two month whirlwind tour from 21st July – 19th September. To follow this tour, please go to: The Legacy Blog Tour Schedule and Updates.

My first tour is for The Traveler and it runs from the 19th May – 16th June. The schedule for this tour is as follows, so if you want to follow the tour, simply visit the tour stops on the specified day :)
