Setting Up the Blog Tour

I'm almost done with my to-do list for August. I've sent off a copy of the ms to the person I hired to do my book trailer. I've contacted several authors about book blurbs and heard back from many of them.

Now for the blog tour.

I'm still working out the details for my blog tour, but I think I want it to run for two months: one month beforehand to build hype, and one month after the release to continue the hype when people can actually buy the book.

Eek! I'm really excited!

Is one blog a day too much? Should I do less? Three a week? I anticipate these being much easier to line up than author book blurbs.

Oh, and contest, people. I need ideas. What kind of contest should I hold during this time period? Everyone does the "make a comment and be entered in to win a free book," so I'm sure I will too. But what else can I do? Something awesome that doesn't cause me to give up all my first year's royalties! Ideas, anyone?

Put me down as part of your blog tour! I would love to host either before or after.

How exciting!!!
I'm bad a contest ideas...but maybe something to do with writing. Like ask a question and people answer...I don't know...something like that! Maybe do like a writing prompt.

Thank you, Karen! I was hoping I could count on you!

What about the prize, Lluvia? What could they win?

October is coming up fast. Good luck with everything. I would be happy to help you promote your book, so I'll have to pick it up when it comes out. And when that trailer is up, I'll go ahead and post it on my blog!

Thank you, Amanda! Of course all the support I can get is awesome!
