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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
