Hello all! My name is Lexi, I am a sixteen year old self published author who is still figuring the ends and outs of self publishing and promoting m self published book. I would like to set up a blog tour for my first published novel http://https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/173774 and was curious on how I might go about that?
You could either use a company such as Enchanted Virtual Book Tours, Orangeberry, Supagurl and such,
Or you can e-mail book bloggers with a synopsis, cover, and bio, and a date in which you would want to be featured and/or reviewed. Tell them you are having a book tour and many of them will accommodate you.
Also, you would want to share with people your tour date..
I wrote a page on how to organize a blog tour. You can read it here at my website.
If you have any more questions, just send me a note through my blog. (envelope in top right corner of the blog)
Thank you so much! Your page on organizing your own blog tour is incredible! I really appreciate you sending me the link!
You're very welcome. There are other posts on my Author's Journey re reviews, and other aspects of publishing and marketing a book. Feel free to browse. I'm also posting a blog today on a review of my first week of touring. Nothing that you won't find in the article you've already read, but a more subjective, in hindsight view.
I'd love to host a guest post on my blog when you do the tour! (http://www.savagelullabye.com/savagelullabye/articles/reviews/books/).
My Book section is just getting started and I can use as much content as I can get. That offer goes out to anyone and everyone with a book to promote, by the way!
You should also post your blog tour dates on http://www.litlynx.com/'s Events Calendar! ;)
Lol okay enough shameless self-promotion for now. gl and ttyl
