The Coffee Pot Book Club - 2021 Blog Tour
4 February – 8 April 2021
Due to the current Covid19 situation, it has become increasingly clear that I will be unable to host a physical book launch and signing for ‘Jude & Bliss’ anytime soon. Nothing like a friendly gathering in a cosy pub, with a crowd of good people, as with previous occasions.
However, with this rapidly increasing age of the internet and modern technology, the way books are marketed is changing. Unlike conventional book tours, a blog tour is a virtual tour on several relevant blog sites hosted by professional and renowned book critics, whose opinions and Amazon/Goodreads reviews, often dictate what happens to books in the international sales and rating charts.
A virtual book blog tour consists of lining up a series of book bloggers to spotlight and/or review a newly released book and conduct author interviews during a time frame that corresponds with the release of a title. It is, as the name suggests, the internet version of an old-fashioned, in-the-flesh book tour.
Independent authors, like myself, are finding this comparatively new concept of book promotion quite valuable. It is hoped this will give ‘Jude & Bliss’ some extra exposure. I wrote it, I published it, and now I owe it to myself to get as many people as possible to know about it!
