Today is the day!!! The blog tour starts. I must say, I'm super-stoked. I've never done a blog tour before, and I had decided to do one with this tour. All of the prep-work involved was crazy, but I dug in and created all kinds of stuff for it: playlist, character interviews, I even recorded myself reading excerpts on soundcloud. I also created a trailer for the series, Stories of Serendipity.
All that was okay. I didn't mind most of it, it's all part of marketing my work. When it came time to fill spots for the tour however, I was at a loss. I sent the list to a couple of facebook groups that I was on, and it got filled half-way. I didn't know what to do next.
Then Book Pimps came into the equation, offering to finish what I had started and alleviate some stress. Hell yes! I jumped on that. She had all kinds of blogging contacts that I didn't have access to, and offered some suggestions for date changes and stuff. Since I knew nothing about what I was doing, I eagerly handed over the reigns.
So, stop one on my my blog tour is Cuddly Buddy Book Blog, where Hot Mess received a five-flame review! YAY! Later today, it will be at Chronicles of a Writing Mom.
I'm really excited about this tour, and hopeful that it will do a fraction of what I want it to do for my sales. In the meantime, I've got a fence to fix, and a book to upload. So, we'll see what today brings.
