To Pay or Not to Pay: That is the Blog Tour Question

Being an Indie author is hard. I think we can all agree on that. I’m lucky. I have a publisher. A small publisher, but a good one. And they are growing all the time.

But in a world where hundreds of books are being published every week if not every day, it often feels as though your voice will never be heard over the crowd.

My publisher, Silence in the Library, is great. They do preorder through Kickstarter. They have a great audience through that site, which is amazing. But they don’t run blog tours or review tours. They let the Kickstarter speak for them. But for someone as (neurotically) impatient and overeager as I am, I want, no, NEED a blog tour. The longest, biggest blog tour the world has ever seen!

But then I need to make a choice. Do I pay out of pocket and hire someone to run my blog tour? Do I beg my author friends to host and call in every favor I have?

After a lot of lists, thinking, and looking at the budget, I decided to go with a hybrid option. I’ll run the blog tour and hire someone to do a review tour.

I’m not sure if this is sick or pure genius. I’m not sure if I’ll make it through without curling up in a ball and crying.

So, if you’re interested in joining the blog tour or reviewing The Tethering or The Siren’s Realm, click on the link below and sign up!

You could be saving this author from a nervous breakdown.
