What should I include in a blog tour?


Following on from my previous post, I have prepared a list of items that I am considering to have ready and prepared before I begin to approach bloggers to host me in a blog tour. I have very much appreciated the help and advice gleaned from those who are experts at this sort of thing.  
  • Photos from the actual book launch
  • Promotional banner
  • Cover images
  • Press release
  • Back cover blurb
  • Author bio
  • Why I became a writer
  • Answers for interview questions
  • Several guest post/s
  • Excerpt/s
  • Character interview (not sure that this would work well for Mine to Avenge)
  • Review/s
  • Giveaway
  • Story of cover art
  • Q & A
  • Destination guide for settings in novel
If any bloggers reading this would be willing to host me, I’d love to hear from you. I am thinking of maybe working towards a date in late April.

  1. Kerry- I can host a stop on your blog tour at http://www.joanofshark.com/ I've liked you on Amazon and Facebook. If you are so inclined, you might return the favor. Are you setting this up yourself, or are you interested in a few people who organize them for you (for a fee)?

  2. Thank you so much for your kind offer - I will put you on top of the list for a 'stop'. Let me know if you have a preference for a certain type of 'stop'. I would be willing to return the favour at some time, of course. At this time, I am trying to do this all myself as part of a learning experience, so I can document it on the blog further down the track. I am finding out how complicated it can be and am still sifting through blogs, and have occasionally been tempted to give it over to someone else, but I want to try to do it myself. If you can point me towards other blogs with a suspense/mystery focus, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
