WEEK #411
(One Question.)
Miki asks: What kind of book tour do you like? one with several snippet along the tours? behind the scene blog post or review only or something else??
I used to participate in more tours and I always liked to do reviews and a Giveaway. I don't find cover reveals so interesting - that's just me. I don't mind a short excerpt but I'm not crazy about long ones. I also enjoy shorter interviews or author's posts.

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month, I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a 1/2 book choice or $2.50 towards GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! The supply of questions is dwindling so share some if you think of any -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify them.
The comments in December were provided by Nikki and Miki who get  $2.50 credit.

Your turn to share. Miki asks: What kind of book tour do you like? one with several snippet along the tours? behind the scene blog post or review only or something else??

SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Updated ARC and Other books, including the "Love" and Christmas titles all in one post.

SBB Rules:
a) Must be a follower.
b) Share a comment on the question above.
Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.
I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made through Saturday, January 9, 2021, at 5 PM central.


  1. Congrats, Rita!

    Since I don't read excerpts and cover reveals do nothing for me, the only thing that is somewhat interesting is a story behind the book.

  2. Snippets and anything that relates to the characters in the book or it's setting

  3. Congrats to the winner!
    When I post a book tour, the feature usually includes an excerpt so the reader can get a feel of the book and a giveaway.

  4. short interviews, giveaways

  5. i don't like simple cover reveals it's too repetitive i like when each stop help me learn something new about the book and /or the author giveaways are also great if open to all

  6. Congrats Rita. Short intervies, and short snippets about what book is about.
    Carol L

  7. I like guest posts and interviews with the author

  8. I am not interested in book tours.
    Happy New Years.

  9. I enjoy reading the snippets

  10. I usually do reviews too! But interviews are fun as well.

    Thanks for the credit Martha !

  11. I like the interviews with the authors.
