Lifting Off: A Blog Tour for BROKEN

Posted on: March 29, 2011

Before I began my current existence in this world of writers, reviewers and readers, I had no idea what a blog tour was. This came as something of a surprise to me, considering I’d been a political blogger for five years beforehand! However, I’ve learned that this is a way for writers to connect with new audiences by popping up on various book blogs for either a review, or a guest post/interview.

It’s actually been a lot of fun to pull diverse material together for the tour I’ve just begun. I’ll keep you posted about what’s going on with it as it progresses, but so far the tour has gone to two blogs this week:

Hobbitsies – I wrote a little biographical sketch for this site.

Bibliophile Brouhaha – There is a lovely, thorough review of the book up here today.

Planned stops for the rest of this week:

Wednesday: Alisia Leavitt
Thursday: Girls in the Stacks
Friday: Lost for Words

It was a ton of work to get everything put together for this tour, but I had a blast doing it, and I hope you all enjoy the stuff I came up with!

Do YOU like early voting? Well, I do, and you can read about it at CT News Junkie. My favorite negative comment on the article asks, “Do you actually think before you make statements like this?” The answer, unsurprisingly, is no. I just make it up as I go along!

I like the idea. Half my recent reading list has come off of recs from AIAL’s*, and finding them through their blogs is an easy way to get the love going. As for the early voting thing: I’m in New York, where the politically entrenched would never allow such a thing, but since the Right has so poisoned the well by talking-pointing to a connection between early voting and ACORN and all that, I doubt we will ever see it at a level that makes sense for this century.

Blog tours are a very cool idea, and I’m enjoying it so far!

And as for early voting, if it can (potentially) happen in Connecticut, it could happen in NY too! You never know.
