More About the Author

Jaime McDougall is a citizen of the world, currently loving life in beautiful country Victoria in Australia. She loves eating sushi, kidnapping her husband and naming her pets in honour of science fiction authors. (So far, a cat named Asimov and two dogs named Brin and Zenna.)

She's long had a love of fiction, and she began telling stories as a child even before she knew how to write them. Settling into one genre was never her style and she has plans for novels in women's fiction, urban fantasy and more.

She has been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: High School: The Real Deal and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles. She has also enjoyed writing a column called 'The New Australian' in local newspapers as well as various articles online.

Her fiction work and poetry has been published both online and off in places including The Oddville Press (no longer running) and The Filth zine.

Every author wants great exposure for their book. Online marketing is currently bursting with innovative ways to market a book. As both an author and a book blogger myself, I see first-hand the evidence of how creating a buzz online will boost sales and excitement for the author.

Online book tours have become very popular in the last few years and I think every author should experience this kind of tour. Jaime McDougall has written the second book in her So You Want series for authors who aren't familiar with online book tours or just want to know more about them before signing on with a tour company or coordinating their own.

This Smashwords ebook edition is a simple but effective guide for authors who want a quick run-down of what online book tours are and how they work. Although I coordinated my own online book tour for my book Daughter of Mine and I'm a host for several tour companies, I still learned a few things I didn't know. This guide is short and ideal for the author who doesn't want to read a thick book about online marketing but just wants a compact, easy-to-read guide only about tours at the very affordable price of 1.99$. I easily read it within a couple of hours.

McDougall adopts a friendly tone as she writes. She guides you on what to do before, during and after a tour. She includes a Link Index for easy access to tour companies, blog directories, podcast/chat/radio sites and book trailer companies. She also includes a FAQ at the end of some chapters that are helpful. Best of all McDougall is honest and this allows for the author to decide what is best in his case--to go at it solo or to hire the services of an online book tour company.

If you are an author contemplating an online book tour or you're a book blogger who wants to know more about online book tours, this book is a good guide.

In her latest e-book, So You Want An Online Book Tour: An Author's Guide to Online Book Tours, author Jaime McDougall has used her experience as a professional blogger, book tour coordinator, and book tour host to provide other authors with an easy-to-follow guide to online book tours. McDougall speaks to those authors who want to take on the entire book tour scheduling process themselves as well as those who expect to hire a coordinator for their tour and lays out what to expect and how best to conduct tours.

McDougall begins by explaining what an online book tour is and detailing the types of tours, types of tour stops, and add-ons that some book tour packages provide. She then gets into what you can expect if you hire a book tour company and how to compare companies. Next, she guides the reader through the important things that should be done pre-tour, including the process of finding and contacting hosts. She then provides helpful advice for during and after the tour. Finally, she includes a long list of links to resources for those considering an online book tour.

This is a small but thorough guide for those authors who are considering an online book tour, as well as those who haven't yet considered an online book tour but need to promote their book(s). As a blogger rather than an author, I still found this book enlightening and learned some things that will help me as a potential host.

McDougall's passion for helping other authors to succeed is clear throughout this guidebook. She generously shares her experience with others and the result is invaluable.

My suggestion: buy the e-book, read it, and use it to spread your message. While you're at it, check out Jaime's first So You Want... e-book for authors: So You Want to Write a Guest Post.

I received this book as an ebook in an author giveaway on Library Thing. The title intrigued me because I have published a novel in both print and eletronic format. Now, there are plenty of traditional channels to market printed matter, but getting people to notice your ebook in an ever expanding sea of new ebooks is a tricky venture at best.

Ms. McDougall comes to the topic as both a professional author, blogger and electronic book tour guide. But as she is quick to point out, with the right information, an author can promote her electronic work herself. It takes more time and work on the author's part, and there are the ever present pitfalls to negotiate, but it can be done.

For me, that alone is a reason enough to spend the $1.99 on this ebook. She gave me hope and plenty of information and references to construct a plan of action for myself.

For those who prefer to be guided, her practical advice, in addition to lists of dos and don'ts in considering which book tour company to choose and why, are invaluable in time and money saved and in frustration avoided.

So hop on the virtual tour bus. Get your press kit ready. And take your ebook to new sale heights. So You Want an Online Book Tour: An Author's Guide to Online Book Tours
