This is my self-imposed schedule:
9:00 a.m. today – First Post – About The Author
10:00 a.m. today – Second Post – About The Book
11:00 a.m. today – Third Post – My Review
Okay, most of my followers will be asking, What the hey is a blog tour? This is what I’ve found out: It’s a marketing tool for the author/publisher of a new book. Instead of visiting a store or a library or a book fair to launch the title, followed by other stores and libraries and book fairs in a hectic and exhausting schedule, the author visits a number of blogs on a schedule.
So, that’s what a blog tour is – a virtual book tour.
I can’t guarantee that Trilby will be visiting this blog, for we haven’t discussed it. But check out the comments. She may drop in.
Who is Trilby Kent? She says she was born inToronto, Ontario, but grew up in cities on both sides of the Atlantic. After completing degrees at Oxford University and the London School of Economics, she worked for a time in the rare books department at Bonhams before turning to journalism and writing novels for children and adults. Her first book, Medina Hill, is also available from Tundra Books. Trilby Kent lives in London, England.
Now here’s her tour schedule for the rest of the day. Find out what others are saying, and what Trilby is saying, elsewhere. You might just have fun:
