It’s been a long time since I went on a virtual book tour for any of my books, mostly because I haven’t had a new release in two years. That doesn’t mean I haven’t written, quite the opposite. I finished 4 new stories since then, but I just can’t seem to find it in me to go again through the publishing and marketing phases which take time, effort, and energy, and I’d rather focus all of that toward the writing process rather than publishing (after all I’m a writer not a salesperson).
I love the flux of books published on a daily basis. Books in all genres, for old or young, everything for everyone’s taste, with the touch of a button. Wikipedia claims there were over 300,000 books published in 2013. That means there are over 800 books published daily. Add to that Amazon changing the best-sellers list hourly, promotional adds, you can only imagine how easily books like mine get lost beneath the swelling tide of all other books.
Luckily for me there are people who organize book tours regardless of the publishing date. So I decided to re-invigorate my latest novel titled Me Tarzan–You Jane, by employing Giselle’s help at Xpresso Book Tours for a week long book tour.
The tour starts next week on Monday Feb. 13 and runs until Friday Feb. 17. There will be reviews, excerpts, interviews and guest posts every day. The schedule is as following:
–Rockin’ Book Reviews >> Guest post
–Archaeolibrarian – I Dig Good Books! >> Review
–The Bookworm Chronicles >> Excerpt
–underneath the covers >> Excerpt
–Thoughts in Progress >> Top 10 List
This is a great opportunity for all of you to find new blogs (maybe fall in love with them?), find out what others think about my novel, read an excerpt and maybe who knows, you’ll decide to get it for yourself. I’m also going to have a giveaway at the end of the tour consisting of 1 (one) 7″ Fire Tablet (U.S only) or a $50.00 Amazon gift card (international entry) for a participant who:
- Leaves a comment here or on any other blog hosting my tour letting me know where they’ve done it
- Signs up to follow this blog (see the “Sign up” button on the upper right-hand corner)
- Follows me on Twitter @CamiSkiba
- Likes my Facebook Fan Page
See you all next week!
