An excerpt from

Secrets to a Successful Blog Tour

Here's what

Fans are saying


This book is full of tips that benefit both those who want to put together their own tour AND those who are thinking of hiring an independent tour company. It tells you what to expect along the way, things to consider, and a timetable to make your tour a success.



As I read this little gem, I could see why Ms Huber took 50 Shades to such success when it was released as an Indie book. She seems to consider every angle : social media, release day, giveaways, and graphics (among others) and sets each out in detail for those authors who aren't certain of the steps to take.



Author Bio


Donna Huber


Donna Huber is an avid reader and natural encourager. She is the blogger behind Girl Who Reads where, in addition to book reviews and author appearances, she writes the popular blogging advice series, Tips on Thursday. She has worked as a freelance publicist since 2010 assisting publishers and authors with their marketing and publicity needs. Most notably, she was the publicist for The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House edition of Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker by E. L. James. 

When she is not doling out blogging advice or promoting the next bestseller, she can be found spending time with family (particularly the four legged, furry members), re-watching Downton Abbey and Harry Potter, or trying to make a dent in her never ending to-be-read pile.
