Soon After Launch Events

It's a missnomer that traditionally published authors will be given a budget and sent off on tour like a parent would give a student off to college. Most marketing and promtion is done exculsively by the author.

I wrote a post another blog called the Hezikiah Effect for Authors which basically said if we are all given our fifteen minutes of fame, to authors it more like a month past our release date, to make an impact and gurantee the shelf life of our books, why can't we be like Hezekiah and pray for another fifteen?

Thankfully the internet has done a lot for authors to expose more poeple to our products rather than expensive live local and regional tours that tack on travel and lodging fees. Don't get me wrong I still get out there new cap to new cap with readers. I invested my dollars also in an industry leader of blog tours Tyora Moody at Tywebbin creations for a virtual blog tour ( Catche me around cyberspace at these locations, plus my mystery launch party.
