Second: The book is LOADED down with critical information for managing successful blog tours at each and every level of the tour. This is backed up with lists at the end of the book. On that note, this book would have been a 5 star review for me had the author used methods to make critical information stand out, such as bullet points and bold print. Furthermore, as someone who has read and/or reviewed several hundred business books, one thing that makes a business book stand out is conciseness in presentation. Having critical information at the drop of a finger is critical to efficiency. The greater majority of the book was written in a novel format. This made the information difficult to pull out or difficult to recall. Since this book is available as an ebook, this would make that process even more difficult.
In the end, this author knows her stuff. Even without the tweaking there is plenty to learn from this book. A more concise layout would have been the icing on the succulent cake.
My dreams of sudden acclaim and blockbuster sales gone, I sat down and googled my way down into the deep warrens and tunnels of book marketing advice. Slowly but surely, I pieced together through blog posts, comments and forums a barely functioning brain on how to market a book amid the calvacade of new titles in the self-publishing era. In that search, I came across Donna Huber and her Girl-Who-Reads blog. Here was someone who had more than built a brain about book marketing, I was pretty sure she was the mother computer, the main terminal creating the Matrix, the Wizard behind the curtain...only in her OZ she actually had magic powers. I immediately enlisted her help and she created my first ever blog tour. It was all white lightning, strobe lights and weird voodoo to me...but it worked. My book found an audience. My social media sites picked up followers. I built relationships with influential bloggers from the US, great readers from overseas and even met a genuine Cabin Goddess in Alaska. In short, it worked.
And now Donna has spilled the proverbial beans and given up all of her secret mojo in her book Secrets to a Successful Blog Tour. In her concise, to-the-point style, she lays out exactly what you should do and how you should do it. Part of me is mad at her because I wanted to keep her to myself, but I guess we can share. If you're an author battling to find an audience you would be crazy not to grab a copy of this book, cancel your date with Downtown Abbey or Duck Dynasty (different strokes and all that) and sit yourself down in a chair. Read. Learn. Do what she says. Sell books. Simple as that. And if you're lazy like I tend to be, you can reach out and have her still do all the heavy lifting for you with her tour company...but at least you'll know what she's doing and why. Good luck, it's a rough market out there, so take every advantage you can. Donna Huber's book is one of those advantages. Congratulations on finding it.
