Two years ago, I didn't know that blog book tours existed. I was sent an invite to participate for a fellow Limitless Publishing author and decided to spend a few dollars on getting my own tour. The biggest problem I faced was my category. I was too "Christian" for my secular marketing sites that hosted tours and too "secular" for my Christian market. This line I had tiptoed was not doing me any favors and I happened upon Lola's blog tours. She and I communicated back and forth. She was always patient and accommodating to a newbie and as a result, I had a "best new release" on Amazon for Love, Defined.
Soooo when I started to look for marketing my second book, of course, I knew who I wanted to work with. Over the years, you pick up networks left and right. My problem again was my category. Storm of Hope is a memoir first, and a poetry collection second. I needed to find marketing companies that handled nonfiction and poetry, specifically. I learned that Lola just started doing nonfiction recently. I signed up Storm of Hope for a book blitz and hopefully get in the hands of people that can relate to my story. I feel so blessed to be working with Lola's blog tours again! If you feature nonfiction in your book blogs, please kindly think of me and sign up here:
I drink too much coffee, read too many books, and in between raising two miracle babies, I find time to write.
