Q: What is a blog tour and why should I use one?
A: A blog tour is a virtual book tour. It is a great way to promote your book and gain new readers. Letting ABG Reads Book Tours plan your tour takes the stress out of contacting bloggers to promote your book. We do all the hard work to find the blogs that are a perfect match.
Q: What is a guest post and how does it differ from an author interview?
A. A guest post is where you answer one question instead of several. The topics can range from what inspired you to write your book to Alpha Males vs Beta Males to Who are your favorite heroines? Guest posts should be original and be about 500 words each. Here is an example from Jennifer Estep on my blog A Buckeye Girl Reads: http://lovesromances.blogspot.com/2010/10/guest-post-by-jennifer-estep-author-of.html
Q: What is an excerpt and how long should they be?
