How to Order a Book Tour
The author decides to initiate a book tour and decides what dates are convenient for them. The book tour spans over two or three weeks of weekdays. The author is expected to visit each blog each day to leave comments and engage in dialogue with the commenters and to answer questions.
The author is asked to send:
1. Author bio
2. Author pic
3. Book description
4. Book cover art
BronzeWord submits the author’s material to a list of bloggers, and the bloggers decide whether they wish to host the author.
On “Happens” the entire tour and what is expected of the author is listed. Read the whole explanation here.
