VBT Day 61: Social Media Sites No Writer Should Be Without

Today is the last day of the tour... and what a tour it's been! I had high expectations for this tour and can happily say I met, nearly, all of them. The one about making millions was a little unrealistic though ;)

For the past two months I've been touring the web to promote the release of my book Virtual Book Tours: Effective Online Book Promotion From the Comfort of Your Own. Here's a quick run down of the goals I set and met:

1) Best seller status- The book is an international best seller and so I totally kicked that one :)
2) Become a best seller within first week of release- This was to set a new personal best for myself. The book became a best seller on day 1 of it's launch!
3) Have at least 10 reviews posted to Amazon- The reviews have been rolling in and all of them have been 5 stars! Although I got 9 reviews on Amazon.com, I did get others posted to the other Amazon sites and Goodreads, as well as some blogs. I can tick that one off my list too.
4) Get within the top 4 spots on relevant Goodreads lists- Reached top 4 in several lists (even made #2 on one of them) and so mission accomplished here too.

It's fair to say, this was a successful tour :)

And the last hosts and posts are....

A huge thank you to everyone that has supported the tour, the book, and myself over the past two months. I'm honoured to have such an awesome network and such amazing fans.
