Review: Virtual Book Tours by Jo Linsdell

I haven’t read non-fiction in a while, to be honest. I’ve read so many books on PR, marketing, social media strategies, etc, that I had to take a long break from a point on. There was the occasional exception of a few articles here and there, but Virtual Book Tours by Jo Linsdell ended that break. It was a pleasure to read and it’s a great resource for any author trying to figure out tours.

Before I tell you more, here’s the official book description:

Virtual Book Tours are a great way to create a buzz for a new release or to put life back into an older publication. In this book I’ll take you through everything you need to know to be able to set up and carry out a successful virtual book tour. 

The book is divided into 4 main sections for easy navigation:

1) What is a Virtual Book Tour?
2) How to organise your own tour
3) Promoting a tour
4) Useful resources

You’ll find it packed with links, tips, and advice to help make your tour a hit.

Virtual Book Tours is well structured, easy to read, and it makes learning about blog tours seamless. You will understand what a tour is, how to determine your target audience, how to set your goals, how to find hosts, schedule stops, promote your tour, and, extremely important, how to measure results.

If you haven’t been on a tour and have no idea where to start, this book will definitely explain it all for you. If you have some idea about what’s what, Virtual Book Tours will clarify everything for you and give you the resources you need. If you’ve even organized tours, this book will help you do it better the next time around.

I highly recommend you try it, regardless of your experience with virtual blog tours for books of any kind.
