I have been waiting for this guide with baited breath because I run an author image service, run book tours for them and work with a lot of authors as a helpful hand who do not have the funds to hire PR on even a part time basis. This guide was needed. She has talked about many of the information in this how-to piece on her blog as part of her Thursday Tipe feature posts. BUT what she did here was expand upon it and give a step-by-step easy to follow guide, and even used pictures! (Yes I am visual, I love photos).

It is laid out in steps, and in the end it even has a set of nice checklists to use as an example or even just use as is. For those of us who take a zen approach and have the organizational skills of a squirrel before winter, this is wonderful. I run tours and I found after reading it for my third time even more info. I do things differently with some of these things but have found a bunch of things that will end up saving myself and the authors time, stress and money. Everything here is useful, there isn't one poor example of how to run part of a Tour. I have been part of her blog tours as a blogger and she is in the top three of who I would grade an A because of how smoothly they are run.

This is NOT just for DIY self publishing authors, this is NOT just for bloggers and tour hosts, this is not just for tour companies or publishers, or publicists. This is one of those guides that everyone in the indie publishing industry should have on the desk to "grab", check and use for reference. If it was in print, there would be stick tabs and highlights in mine! Thanks Donna!! Great first segment, cannot wait for more DIY guides.

I first read this book as an ARC and bought it to have in my corner. Donna outlines the steps a writer needs to take in order to set up a successful blog tour for a new release - or standing ebook - for authors. Her extremely clear style makes the process very easy to follow, and she gives many examples.

As I read this little gem, I could see why Ms Huber took 50 Shades to such success when it was released as an Indie book. She seems to consider every angle : social media, release day, giveaways, and graphics (among others) and sets each out in detail for those authors who aren't certain of the steps to take.

Highly recommended.

I found this book very useful as I organized my blog tour. It was short and to the point - no wading through long passages to find the useful parts. I think the idea of setting up a Google form so that all responses appeared on a spreadsheet was genius, except that most of the blogs I contacted chose not to use the form. :) I'd recommend this to any writers who want to organized a blog tour of their own.

This book is full of tips that benefit both those who want to put together their own tour AND those who are thinking of hiring an independent tour company. It tells you what to expect along the way, things to consider, and a timetable to make your tour a success.

The advent of e-books and self-publishing platforms has created a veritable landslide of new books on the market and fresh-faced newbie authors excited to share their masterpieces with the world. As one of those newly minted authors myself (although at age 41 not so fresh-faced...and, come to think of it, I don't recall the term "masterpiece" ever showing up in reviews of my work!) I quickly discovered after pressing the "Publish Now" button that the world was not nearly as impressed with my accomplishment as I was. In fact, I actually convinced myself at one point that the "BUY NOW" button could not possibly be working properly on my Amazon page. How else could my complete lack of sales be explained? (Authors tend to lead rich fantasy lives.)

My dreams of sudden acclaim and blockbuster sales gone, I sat down and googled my way down into the deep warrens and tunnels of book marketing advice. Slowly but surely, I pieced together through blog posts, comments and forums a barely functioning brain on how to market a book amid the calvacade of new titles in the self-publishing era. In that search, I came across Donna Huber and her Girl-Who-Reads blog. Here was someone who had more than built a brain about book marketing, I was pretty sure she was the mother computer, the main terminal creating the Matrix, the Wizard behind the curtain...only in her OZ she actually had magic powers. I immediately enlisted her help and she created my first ever blog tour. It was all white lightning, strobe lights and weird voodoo to me...but it worked. My book found an audience. My social media sites picked up followers. I built relationships with influential bloggers from the US, great readers from overseas and even met a genuine Cabin Goddess in Alaska. In short, it worked.

As a blogger, rather than an author, I found the book to be eye-opening as far as the preparations and work that go into creating a successful tour. I did not realize how far in advance planning needed to start and what steps needed to be taken before bloggers even start signing up to host an author.

Huber not only provides the information needed for organizing a tour (complete with tour checklist, instructions on creating tour graphics, and ideas for tour posts) but also gives insight into how to choose the right tour company to get the best tour package to meet your needs if an author chooses to go that route.

Secrets of a Successful Blog Tour is a book that can be used by authors, bloggers, and publicists as it offers tips that can be used by everyone involved in the blog tour.
