planning a virtual book tour
I’ve been learning much from D’vorah Lansky during the past 4 weeks in her 30-day Book Marketing Challenge. Although I haven’t had time to properly digest all the material, the one thing that has really motivated me in the course material, is to plan a virtual book tour for my chocolate travel book, “Chocolatour: A Quest for the World’s Best Chocolate.”
D’Vorah has suggested that I find blogs that have a complementary audience to mine and approach them with hope that a guest post, offer of an interview by Q&A, or live interview via audio or video be offered during the course of the pre-determined dates of the virtual book tour.
I’ve begun this process and have received some positive responses. I’ll have to put more effort into moving forward with the project after I’d reread D’Vorah’s book, “21 Ways to Launch a Successful Virtual Book Tour.”
If your blog’s audience meets any of the following criteria:
- loves to read about books and authors
- supports independent publishing
- loves fine food and culinary delights
- is enthusiastic about the pleasures and creativity of artisanal chocolate
- is interested in travel and culture
- is excited about the health benefits of power foods such as pure dark chocolate …
I think they would be interested in Chocolatour. Please get in touch with me and let me know if you’d like to collaborate with me on this exciting venture.
I will prepare customized content to meet the unique interests of your audience.
I have a substantial following on Twitter and other social media platforms and will be happy to cross-promote the event so that it is a win-win for all concerned.
Here’s looking forward to hearing from you, and to a fruitful collaboration!
