This book will teach you what a virtual book tour (VBT) is, how to organize one, how to promote it, and how you keep the buzz going for your book once your VBT is over. It provides information on such important topics such as:
- The type of blog stops,
- Knowing your target audience,
- How to be a good guest,
- What promotional materials you'll need to put together,
- Internet radio, podcasts, and web TV hosts,
As someone who has coordinated virtual book tours for more than six years, I'm happy to endorse Linsdell's book. It provides a wealth of helpful information in a conversational and easy to understand style. Links to a variety of online resources are included.
Before you plan your first virtual book tour, or even if you've planned one before and would like to brush up on the ins and outs of promoting your book online, pick up a copy of Virtual Book Tours: Effective Online Book Promotion From the Comfort of Your Own Home by Jo Linsdell.
