I could come up with a lot of very credible excuses...but the bottom line is, I simply haven't organized my time well enough.
Or my information, and that has caused a lot of backtracking. So, let me share with you what I would do if I were starting over.
1) Make a spreadsheet. This is truly the most important part. On this spreadsheet, make a list of all the blogs that you want to ask to participate in your blog tour. Then have the following columns (Not necessarily in this order):
date of blog tour
This makes it really easy to find your people and know when you're doing what.
I found it also helpful to have a
2) Calendar. On this calendar I've included the name and blog address for each person participating in my tour. I wish I'd also included the emails so I don't have to constantly go back to my spreadsheet, but I didn't. You can be smarter than me.
Bottom line is, everything involved with getting published requires lots of ORGANIZATION. I'll be more prepared with the next book.
