After making many magical miles around the globe in my virtual bus, for a total of thirty-one stops, it’s down for repairs! And so am I. 🙂
One thing I learned from this tour is that bloggers are the most generous and giving people on the face of the earth!
While there was a core group (my virtual blogger family) who showed up at every stop, there were also new potential readers discovered along the way. In the blogging world, we all tend to move in a circle and through tours like this one, my circle widened.
The most shared post was the one at Jacquie Biggar’s site. Jacquie, you have an amazing base of followers, and I am grateful that you allowed me to share my story with them! I’m still seeing new shares show up on Twitter.
The blog stop with the most comments was Mae Clair. What a fun topic we had to discuss that day!
The average number of comments per blog stop was an astounding sixty.
The most interaction came from posts that included something personal about myself such as the one I shared on John Howell’s blog site. It seems that folks want to know more about the author and personal experiences and I totally get that. You can find out about the book through a simple blurb, but the author behind the book seems to be more intriguing. I’ve never thought of myself as intriguing or even slightly interesting, but it was fun sharing little known facts about me.
The facebook shares and tweets were amazing. For me, Twitter is a better platform for this kind of promotion as the retweets can keep it going. Each time I logged into Twitter, I saw my book being blasted.
My fear was that everyone would get sick of me and Ghostly Interference before the tour ended. But, with new people stopping by, I hope that didn’t happen.
Will I do it again?
I don’t know. I feel that this was a very successful blog tour and I had fun writing all the different blog posts. If you missed any of the stops and want to go back, here’s the link. https://jansikesblog.com/2021/01/16/book-tour-ended-ghostly-interference-wildrosepress/
But for now, I’m exhausted and ready to take a break from marketing and dive back into writing book 3 of The White Rune Series.
I sincerely thank ALL of you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity in sharing, commenting and uplifting me along the way! It’s been quite a ride!
This is me today.
