Become a butterfly @Butterfly-o-Meter Books!

Categories: book-o-sphere flutters
Hey guys! This is the first Book-o-Sphere Flutter of 2014, yey! I'm going to be a little selfish & use it for the blog. I've been thinking about this for a few months, what with my trials at writing taking more and more time, I've been getting bouts of guilt about not being able to respond to Review Requests as positively as I used to some time ago. When I first started this blog in 2011, I was intensely promoting ebooks and indie authors and focusing on them. As time went by, it became more of an all'round focus on Romance and some YA, Read more [...]

My book blogger needs

Categories: book-o-sphere flutters
I've been MIA during the last weekends. I foresee more of that happening until like October maybe, because sometimes the authoring part of my life just has to have priority. I've been pretty adamant about not letting the author part of my life invade my book blogging time, and things have been going well so far. Right now though, damn, there's just no way to have my fun little RAWBL weekends. Titles that were scheduled for the weekends I'm MIA will be redone, mainly because I so wanna read them and I'm sure I won't get to it unless I stick to Read more [...]

By definition, virtual book tours are online events focused on creating a buzz about a title. To do that, organizers Read more [...]

Categories: book-o-sphere flutters
So, today's topic is (again) Virtual Book ToursThis is part II of my (ridiculously large!) insider's guide to virtual book tours. Today we're talking about types of content that can show up on book tours and I'll give you my take on each. I like to think of the content in categories, it makes it easier to focus on each so we can talk about them. Types of tour stops...Book tour stops can be:- reviews (your review of that book that's on tour)- guest posts ( author guest post, character interview {author asks the character Q's}, character guest post Read more [...]

Book-o-Sphere Flutters: Virtual Book Tours – the insider’s guide ~ I

Categories: book-o-sphere flutters
While stalking visiting blogs through the #FF last week, Angela and myself ran into each other. To make a long story short, after some chatting on the topic, she suggested I should write something like a guide on book tours.I thought about it and realized while some of us have made up our minds about things, some of our bloggy friends might not find enough info on things that easily. And without really knowing what's up with something, it's really difficult and unwise to make up your mind about it, I think.So I thought I'd share some of what I've Read more [...]
