It's a new idea that could very easily revolutionize the industry as we know it today. I myself am organizing a virtual book tour to kick off the day after Thanksgiving. My goal is 20 venues in 20 days, but we'll see how it goes. I'm still learning about this new means of promoting one's work and so there will be a fairly significant learning curb to work through.
Should anybody want to host a tour, lemme know. The deal is one day. We set up a blog post with my author bio, maybe a youtube clip to introduce the book or something, picture, summary of the book, and a link to the book. Finally, we'd turn the comment section into a Q&A between me and the readers. An interview or review wouldn't hurt either.
MORE EXPOSURE. Not just for me, but for the patron who puts up their blog for the day. People talk, and thus if the blog is archived there could be constant Net stream of traffic to the particular blogger.
Other than the potential added traffic, I'm willing to offer a PDF copy of my book, The Fallen, at no charge to any patrons who are interested.

Serious inquiries only, please. And preferably veteran bloggers, but as we near launch I may consider newer bloggers to help out.
