Book Discussions: Do you enjoy doing Blog Tours?


Hello everyone!  Today’s discussion question is on “Do you enjoy doing Blog Tours?”

I personally enjoy doing book or blog tours because it helps me get a chance to meet up with various authors who are promoting their books and it helps me discover new and interesting books that are coming out in the near future.

So what do you think?  Do you enjoy doing blog tours?  Please feel free to answer below!

  1. I think blog tours are a good idea. How much one does though, is difficult to determine, especially thinking about – in my case in any event – how much time I set aside for writing and illustrating. So I would be interested to know your thoughts on how best to divide one’s time to blog tours and what is the ultimate aim?

    1. I think it depends on when you want to do blog tours. I tend to do blog tours whenever I feel like it since having them give me a deadline in doing a blog tour can be pretty stressful to me.

  2. I believe I only participated in two blog tours so far and one of those was organised by the author himself. I’m having some issues with blog tour organisers who are asking a lot of money from the authors, yet let the reviewers do most of the work, for free. “You’ll get more hits” is what one of them said to me. But that still doesn’t justify milking an author for it. I’d rather work with an author directly instead of throughout an agent :). But I’m sure not all blog tours work this way, so in the end, it’s all just a matter of personal preferences 🙂
