VBT Days 21, 22 and 23: Time off and Promoting a Virtual Book Tour

Days 21 and 22: 

I gave myself the weekend off. Some times it's a good idea to take a small break so you can recharge your batteries and, as this weekend proved, can help you focus and be better organised. You see the only tour-related task I did over the weekend was to take check of all the stops I've done so far and make notes about the content I need to send to upcoming hosts. During this little inventory I discovered that a stop had slipped past me. The stop in question was this interview I did for The Novel Corner about virtual book tours http://thenovelcorner.com/2013/09/09/a-modern-take-on-a-book-tour-linsdell-explains/. I'd had the host marked on my tour schedule for earlier in the month but we mixed up the blog url and so I had it down as a missed post when in fact it had been posted, just on a different blog. These things can happen. If a host fails to post try sending a follow up email. It might be they simply forgot. In this case, I visited the Facebook page of my host and checked through her recent posts. Most bloggers post the links to their articles on their timeline to promote them. This is where I found the correct link to my tour stop. I quickly apologized for not commenting on the post and sent her an email to so we were both clear on the mix up. So anyway, although things didn't go quite to plan it did prove as a good example of what to do when things don't go quite to plan ;)
