When a new book is being released, a lot of stores try to promote the book in order to generate more sales for it. One of the ways to do so is to have the author of the book visit your store on their book tour to do a signing but this is not always an option since the author might not come to your city or town.
So what are some other ways you can promote books?
An online book tour might just do the trick! Especially if you are thinking to sell eBooks online. These days a lot of people are opting to sell eBooks hence these cannot be signed and an online book tour is a better option.
An online book tour sounds scary and intimidating but it is actually very easy and can be done by anyone. All you need to do is look for a few popular blogs preferably those which book lovers frequent and write a blog entry for them as either a guest writer or they can make a post on your behalf.
