Here's how it works:
Basically, during a Virtual Book Tour, an author (me) visits specific lineup of websites or weblogs, similar to a real-life book tour, where stops are made at brick-and-mortar bookstores. Each day, the author visits a different website, from the comfort of her living room. At each "stop", the author may be interviewed, make "blog" entries, answer questions from site visitors, submit their book for review, or any combination of the above. What sets a virtual tour apart from real-life tours is that once the content is posted on a website, it's archived “24/7” for later access, allowing those who couldn't visit on the appointed day to view the material at their leisure.
Typical tours last one week, with a different "stop" (or site) each day.
Due to enthusiastic response, this tour lasted two weeks. Each day I
visited a different site for various festivities, such as layout challenges
& contests, chats, and digital freebies. There were prizes from
sponsors listed below.

Book Tour program. He doesn't cover the craft industry, so I arranged
this myself, but wanted to give him some sort of credit.]
