When I attended Book Expo America last year, the highlight for me was “BEA Bloggers” the day before BEA officially began. I discovered just how much publishers LOVE bloggers because bloggers can be a key to book sales.
So, it’s always interesting to me to see how authors, publicists and publishers are using blog tours to support book promotion and sales–from the blogging network my colleagues at Shelton Interactive developed to promote the Chicken Soup books to the efforts of my individual clients, such as Sherry Burton Ways, Interior Design Consultant and author of the book Feel Good Spaces: A Guide To Decorating Your Home For Body, Mind, & Spirit.
Sherry wrote her terrific book using my Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks self-study program. I immediately bought several copies of her book because every writer I know wants a feel good space to write!
Shortly after, I heard from Sherry’s publicist, Carol Lawrence, to see if I wanted to be part of Sherry’s blog tour. Here’s your opportunity to see how a blog tour can be developed to expand the reach of a book upon launching–and to learn all about creating Feel Good Spaces–from your office to writing space to your bedroom and more!
From February 1st – February 12th, Sherry will visit 12 blogs on her virtual book tour. Follow the tour, visit a new blog each day, meet some wonderful new friends and experience a new type of book tour. On the tour, you will find 12 blogs featuring written Q&A interviews, videos, book reviews, radio show interviews, excerpts from the book, and a variety of articles for creating a “feel good” home.
I enjoyed Sherry’s questions, suggestions, and exercises designed to help you create an environment that creates a refuge from stress and your own private sanctuary.
Feel Good Spaces will also help you envision and develop the space to write and create. Sherry describes the book as providing spaces that take you “back to yourself, elevate your mood, and empower you.”
Day 1 – Friday Feb. 1, join Ms. Elle Smith to jump start the tour on her blog Elle Trendy with an article: “Your Favorite Color Is For Your Healing Color.”
