If you enjoy adventures -- particularly virtual ones -- then you're in for a treat, because, we're heading into uncharted waters on this book tour! It's as if you just boarded a 'themed' cruise ship, where you and the other guests will get to spend the next two months rubbing elbows with 60 great "indie" authors, representing half-a-dozen major fiction genres.
Compete for Prizes ... Including a Kindle Fire! In between trips to our various book blogger "ports of call," where you'll compete for ebook giveaways and signed paperback and hard cover books, you'll have opportunities to increase your odds of winning a series of major tour sweepstakes prizes: bundles of ebooks and a Kindle Fire! We also hope you will take time to get to know as many of our featured authors as possible. Visit their sites, read their writing samples and books, and let them know what you think. They value your comments, so share them one-on-one. Who knows, this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
Visit Our Intrepid Book Bloggers Our ship will be making 30 stops at 15 exotic book-blogging destinations. (We'll stop once at each port-of-call on our way out to sea and then, again, on our return trip.) At some of these stops, you'll learn more about my book, The Last Way Station and me, but at others, I'll be joined by groups of our 'resident' authors, who will regale you with personal tales and adventures, engage you in lively discussions and take part in topical round tables, live webinar panels, contests, games, Q & A sessions and much more. (I get tired just thinking about it!)
Check Out 60 Up-And-Coming Indie Authors As an 'indie' writer (which simply means a writer who either 'self-publishes' or works with non-traditional publishing firms), I've discovered that the Internet supports many lively communities of fascinating writers, and I want to take this opportunity to introduce you to a few. As a group, we offer a broader, more diverse range of works than has ever been available through booksellers before. Why? Because thanks to the economics of our 'virtual," online world, we do not have to write books strictly for mass-market appeal. We can be successful while appealing to narrower tastes and preferences -- in ways similar to the more specialized nature of cable TV programming vs. traditional, network television. We're also highly accessible, fun and eager to engage with you.
Get All the Details So, welcome aboard! To learn more about the cruise (its destinations, schedule, and key events, etc.), our 'resident' authors and the book tour sweepstakes (prizes and rules), just click on the appropriate links below. And remember, one more benefit of a 'virtual' cruise, such as this one, is that there's no "motion of the ocean" and, hence, no sea sickness. (You can leave your Dramamine bottles at home.) Explore the site. Have fun. And we'll see you at sea.
