  1. Wow, how useful to have insight into book blog tours from the organiser's point of view - thank you, Pandora. It is far too easy for we authors to forget the complex process and strategic planning that goes in to making a commercial blog tour service happen, so it is really helpful here to have the opportunity to get behind the scenes of Orangeberry. Thanks, Jess, for setting it up. And now I must go and look up her novel - can't resist that title!

  2. Thank you very much for taking the time to read and comment Debbie.

  3. Very interesting and useful - thank you. I've participated in several book tours now - and believe me they are hard work! I make it a point to ensure I visit the blog I'm appearing on at least twice, always leave my own 'thank you' comment and ensure I reply to any further comments.
    I've also taken part in - and organised - blog hops. These are similar but several authors tak part at once with visitors 'hopping' from one blog to the next. These are free - but again hard work. Worth it though!

  4. this was a really fascinating post because i don't know anything about tours
