I’ve been really busy at work recently and while my writing and promoting Inspired is always in the back of my mind, my day job has to come first because it’s the thing that puts food on the table.
I launched a Kickstarter campaign this week for a new venture so I’ve been preoccupied with making my campaign video and writing press releases.
So where has that left Inspired by Night, or my current work in progress?
Well it occurred to me that a big chunk of Inspired takes place at Christmas time. So what better time than now to do a bit of promo?
I love Christmas. There’s something so romantic about it. I’m not the most girly of women, but my word, do I get giddy over tinsel and fairy lights?!
I think that’s why some of the more romantic elements of Inspired take place at Christmas. The decorations, the roaring log fires, there was definitely a little influence from White Christmas in the back of my mind as I was writing.
Anyway, knowing that I had a lot of stuff going on at work I turned to Lola’s blog tours to help me do some promo.
It was all very easy and straight forward to arrange, I spent a week chipping away at a bunch of interview questions, top ten lists and other stuff and sent it all over with a few choice excerpts.
My blog tour is taking place from the 8th December (which just happens to be my Mum’s birthday).
I’ll be posting links to the blogs as they appear.
I’ve never done anything like this. I don’t know whether blog tours have much impact on sales but over on Goodreads Lola was highly recommended. If you’d like to sign up as a host on my tour click the banner above.
I’ll share my experience afterwards, but so far the preparation towards it has been fairly simple.
Has anyone else done any blog tours? How would you rate them in terms of the impact on sales and did you plan them yourself or use a service?
Let me know below.
