blog tour starts today

I’m on a blog tour! My roommate– who got her Master’s degree in Publishing and is therefore an expert– told me, “Oh, you have to do a blog tour. They are very important.” So let’s assume she’s right. She tends to be right about these things.

I had hoped a blog tour would be like a concert tour. You know, driving around in an old van with three of your best friends, singing along to Night Ranger with the windows rolled down, periodically eating in diners in Toledo, playing to crowds of a dozen people at Bob’s Beer and Billiards, sleeping on strangers’ parents’ family room couches, making out with groupies.

It turns out that none of that happens during a blog tour. Or at least not during MY blog tour. So, that was a shock.

Regardless, my blog tour started today, at Lauren’s Crammed Bookshelf, and it will continue until November 15, and it’s meticulously organized by Yan at Traveling to Teens.

Seriously, these bloggers are so good at what they do, it is unbelievable. Lauren’s post, for example, includes a plot summary, a book review, an interview with me, the book trailer, and a contest for a copy of the book. That is SO MANY THINGS. It’s all I can do most days to update my facebook status before I become exhausted and need to go to sleep.

Which is, by the way, what I’m about to do now. I have to wake up in eight hours. It’s bedtime.
