Planning Another Blog Tour
Fool that I am, yes, I'm working on another blog tour for my latest Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, Violent Departures.
The first step is to find people willing to host me. I've reached out to several and also asked other Oak Tree Press authors if they'd like to be one of my hosts. Some have given me ideas about the subject for the post--others have left it up to me.
One big decision I made was to keep the tour a bit shorter than the last one--this will have 20 stops, beginning April 1.
I'll have two prizes--one will be to have a character named after him or her in the next RBPD mystery and the other, to choose an earlier book in the series--either paper or for Kindle.
Next step, of course, is always to start writing the posts with the goal to make them interesting enough for people to want to read them--but to keep them fairly short. This is always more work than I realize and especially hard when I'm also trying to write a book in my other series.
So, you ask, why do you do it?
Not sure, but I'd say that it is a challenge. And I always see an uptick of sales when I'm on a tour.
So be looking forward to April 1 when I being this tour.
