Best-selling author Shiloh Walker pens this column of online advice for writers. Walker is a full-time author who is published in both e-book and traditional print formats. Now she shares her experience and advice to help aspiring and published authors figure out the "Writes and Wrongs" of the writing world. Today, Shiloh gives writers a lesson on blog tours.
Blog tours are an easy way to get the word out about your book. They can be time-consuming, but if you’re tight on funds and you need to push your latest release, a blog tour might work for you.
A blog tour doesn’t have to cost you any money, although if you want to throw a few contests in, it’s a good way to get readers interacting on the various blogs.
Not sure how to set up a blog tour?
Figure out what kind of bloggers you want to visit…and make sure it’s a match.
If you’re writing erotic romance, you may want to keep that in mind…and not contact a blogger who is most comfortable reviewing inspirational romances. And vice versa.
