I think this book is for anyone that has a book to promote, whether you work with a big publishing company or are self publishing.  Because, here’s the thing, there’s etiquette involved as well as the planning, plotting, contacting, and organizing. A lot of people are not aware of what things work and what things we should do to promote our books. I think this book is a gem and has invaluable information. So, regardless of how long you’ve been doing this and who you are there are some great tips and treasures in this book. Donna Huber has touched on the blog tour from beginning to end and even given us a check list. I think it’s a must for all authors.
