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 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.
