Running Contests in Conjunction with Virtual Blog Tours

by Mary Emma Allen on September 15th, 2007

Authors find virtual blog tours a popular way to reach readers all around the world…and to appear on blogs internationally.  They will take questions from readers in the comments sections of blogs and communicate with them there and on their own blogs.

To generate even more interest in the blog tour, as well as make an appearance and leave a cocmment, authors and tour coordinators now have come up with contests.  These will vary depending on the author and publisher. 

*Carol O’Dell, author of Mothering Mother, visited my Alzheimer’s Notes blog and shared  information about her experiences as caregiver for her mother.   Carol also has a contest running through Sept. 24  that blog viewers and her readers can participate in one of three ways.

 During September the authors on her tours will be giving away free copies of their books to a few lucky people who comment during their blog stops.  Check out Dorothy’s blog for the September schedule and learn where you can visit and comment.
