Lame Girl's Guide to Botching a Blog Tour

Quick tips for not disappointing authors and blog tour hosts:

  • Choose books wisely – It’s no fun getting stuck with a work you won’t like.
  • Manage your schedule
    • Make sure you have time to fully engage.
    • Write it down. (Make a set of countdown reminders if necessary.)
    • Inspect your timeline and other obligations. Prioritize.
  • Communicate with your host. Ask questions.

You know what they say about assuming.

  • Publish your best work. (It’ll get better as you go.) Books and articles on The Craft of writing offer inspiration and tools to speed up your evolution and save you from common mistakes. You don’t have to recreate the wheel.
  • Share share share

  1. Great tips. I also like to blog hop throughput the tour to like and and comment on other people’s posts.

    I think that is how our friendship started. I was looking for people who reviewed Child of Nod and came across your review! ( it might have been the other way around, my memory sucks.)

    So it is a great way to connect with other people and make new friendships.
