This has been a long journey, and for the most part, quite satisfying. The best part is reading the comments left by people on the various posts. And of course, those who have read the book saying they enjoyed it.
Did it help sales? Some, probably not a whole lot, I won't know for sure until I get my first royalty check.
Putting together a blog tour is arduous--finding the people willing to host you, writing something different for each post, sending them off, checking each day to see if the post has appeared (sometimes they don't), through the day looking to see if someone has commented and leaving a reply.
I'm sure some of you may wonder why I do it, since it is so much work. I have several answers. I love writing, and thinking up new topics and writing them is fun for me. I don't do book tours, in fact never have done much of that because all the nearby bookstores have disappeared. In fact, I'm more inclined to give library talks--because the people who come are there to hear you.
The main reason I do blog tours because it's a way to let a lot of people know about my latest book.
If you haven't had a chance yet, go take a look at it on Amazon, Unresolved, by F. M. Meredith. And if you've already read it, and liked it, please leave a review.
