Book Release Blog Tour
After formatting, setting up the Unexpected Texas Book Release Blog Tour was the next big thing on my self-publishing to-do list. I’m happy to report that virtual book tour is shaping up just fine.
It’s gonna be fun, too: I’m giving away free copies of my book along with other prizes every single day of the tour. Then, on the final blog tour day ( Monday, March 10, 2014) the eBook version of Unexpected Texas will be free on Amazon.
Talented Bloggers & Fun Prizes
Here’s a linky list arranged “Brady Bunch” style so you can check out all the fabulous places I’ll be stopping on this virtual blog tour:
What’s the #UnexTex hash tag for?
After brainstorming with friends, two of them suggested using #UnexTex as a hashtag for talking about my quirky travel/trivia guide Unexpected Texas. So if you like to tweet, feel free to join in on the conversation. As you can see, I even added an area on the sidebar of this blog where you can see recent tweets using the #UnexTex hashtag.
My Amazon author page
Yes, I finally made an author page on Amazon for me and Unexpected Texas. To view it, click: Tui Snider’s author page on Amazon
The Rest of my Row80 check-in:
Get my paperback formatted perfectly by Friday, February 21, 2014.
Done! With these proofs in hand, I can already see several tweaks that need to be made.<
Order Paperbacks to sell:
Order 100 paperbacks by Friday, February 21, 2014. Done! As of this writing, they have not been shipped yet. Fingers crossed that they arrive in time for my book launch on Sunday. *gulp*

Well done on getting the book out, and being so organised about the blog tour!
Make sure you take some time out to enjoy it, and not get too overwhelmed.
Hi Buffy! Thanks for reminding me… I *am* feeling a bit overwhelmed today. Hope you will drop by again during the blog tour. Maybe you’ll get lucky and win one of the prizes. :D
Thanks for sharing about ROW80. That sounds like an awesome community.
Oh, yeah! ROW80 is very supportive, Mary. I hope you will join in if you get the urge. :D
Your blog tour sounds like it’s coming together. Congratulations, Tui! :)
Hi Denise! Yes, things are coming together, but I must admit I’m a bit frazzled. I’ve gotten a bit behind, but at least I am having fun. Thank you for dropping by and commenting. Hope you’ll pop in for the blog tour. Who knows? You might even win one of the prizes. :D
Woohoo! I’m excited for your release, and to be a part of it. =D
I’m excited, too, Patty! You’re the next stop on the tour. Wheeeee! :D
