Adventures in publishing: The “blog tour”

Here’s the schedule TLC Book Tours (on behalf of Random House/Crown, my publisher) has set up for Radio Shangri-La’s “blog tour,” which is less about *me getting around and more about *the book being given around to influential bloggers who will write about it and thus spread the word. (Whether or not they like it, which of course we hope they do.) Yet more evidence that traditional journalism is on the wane—not that me, a sort of traditional journalist, needed it!

  2. Lisa, I’m really looking forward to being part of this tour! I was a journalist at one point (briefly), but somehow with blogging I’ve found my niche. (In a curious twist of experience–I majored in sports journalism and have a book and film review blog while my brother majored in English and film and has a sports blog.) I hope to start the book this weekend!
