Blog touring is a rather new form of promotion for authors and their books (at least to me) but it can offer a great way for us to learn about new books directly from their creators. This week Robie Harris (It’s Perfectly Normal) is touring for her new book Maybe a Bear Ate It! Her first interview is with School Library Journal, http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/blog/1790000379/post/420019642.html, with Elizabeth Bird. The topic is very interesting–Fiction and Non-Fiction: Both Need to Tell a Story. Scroll to the bottom of the blog for links to the rest of the blog tour, which continues each day this week.
I’d be interested in hearing feedback about how people like the blog tour concept and whether it is useful for professional development.
