Pump Up Your Book Promotion Social Network: Virtual Book Tours Q&A and Author Day
Cheryl Malandrinos of Pump Up Your Book Promotion has started a discussion at the Pump Up Your Book Promotion Social Network for those interested in learning more about virtual book tours. As we have been in the business for a year now, we’ve become experienced experts in the field. If you would like to ask us a question about anything regarding virtual book tours, visit the link and we’ll be more than happy to address those questions.
The Pump Up Your Book Promotion Social Network was opened to allow authors to promote their books without cost. Sign up and brag, brag, brag. There’s a sub-group in the left hand side that allows excerpts and another one that allows reviews and everyone is invited to submit. All you have to do is sign up and post.
If you are interested in our special section called Author Day which includes an entire day of promotion in a question and answer format, we do have to charge for this but you’ll get your own page with book cover, buying information, author bio, book blurb and promotion for the event prior to the date you will appear. We use the same format of promotion we use for all our authors on tour, so you get more than your money’s worth. We are booked for June, but do have openings in July. The cost is $25. If you are interested, email me at thewriterslife(at)yahoo.com and I’ll send you the application for it.
