Do you wonder what, if anything, is to be gained from blog tours when launching your new book?
Well, besides the exposure, from blogs such as Two Sassy Chicks to Fictional Rendezvous, Obsessed by Books, Eskimo Princess, to name just a few, the second week into its launch, Broken Window has visited seventy blogs and has three favorable book reviews posted on the blogs and also on Amazon.com, and goodreads. The tour generated a good number of tweets also and was so totally affordable that I couldn’t believe the fee.
There are no guarantees for favorable reviews, however, here is one of the reviews from Theresa Masker Reviews from agapareads.com, Theresa noted that she was limited by Amazon.com’s rating system,“5 stars… I would have given more if they would let me….”
Coming from a person who normally doesn’t read crime novels let me tell you I was impressed with Dorothy Hayes “Broken Window.”
The story is about every parents worst nightmare, a missing child. Three teens convinced their parents to let them ride the subway of NYC as one of the girls was going to be attending NYU in the fall. And she wanted to look around the campus. Against better judgement they finally got the ok. There was one problem with that… Three teens got on and only two got off at the destination. Their friend Kelly Singleton was missing.
Investigative reporter Carol Rossi a.k.a as Rossi sees her police husbands information about the girl. She is from their town. Rossi feels the need to help find Kelly. So she does what she does best, investigate. But can she help find Kelly before its too late? You will have to read the book to find out. You won’t be disappointed. I was on the edge of my seat. I was unable to put the book down and neither will you.

One more from Mich’s Book Reviews will be posted on Saturday.
I’ve heard sad stories, not all tours are as productive or reasonable, so if you do decide on a blog tour be sure to compare prices and services well.
