What’s Next?

Dolores – Now that the cover reveal is over, what’s next?

Kendíka – Don’t you know? annamaria is getting things ready for a blog tour.

Dolores – A what?

Kendíka – A blog tour is when an author posts on different blogs about the book that’s just been released. It’s a way to spread the word about the novel.

Dolores –  I see. She’s doing that all by herself?

Kendíka – It is a lot of work, but i think she can manage it.

Dolores – So, what do we do in the mean time?

Kendíka – We continue to talk about your story on the website to keep people interested in the book so maybe when it’s published they will buy and read it. If you’re lucky they’ll even leave a review.

Dolores – How important are reviews?

Kendíka – Quite, they are what really sell a book.

Dolores – No kidding?

Kendíka – It’s the truth. Good marketing is probably number one and reviews come a close second. At least, that’s how I understand it.

Dolores – Besides the blog tour, what is annamaria planning for my novel?

Kendíka – Actually, I think she’s planning two tours.

Dolores – Isn’t one work enough?

Kendíka – The second tour she’s planning to have Debdatta Sahay from Book R3vi3ws schedule the tour, giving her more exposure and reaching a wider audience.

Dolores – I guess that would be a good idea. I believe the book will be released around May 16, so when is she scheduling the first tour?

Kendíka – The first tour will start June 2.

Dolores – Does she have a banner for it?

Kendíka – Not yet. I think she needs to figure out how to make one.

Dolores – So much time away from her writing. I need to learn some of this stuff so I can help her out.

Kendíka – Good luck with that, but I’m ready to go do something else. While you learn how to help annamaria, I’m going for a walk in the rain.

See ya.
