Celebrating Owen and Maggie with Virtual Tours

I’m celebrating the reissue of the Owen Archer and Margaret Kerr mysteries in the US and Canada with two “blog tours” this autumn, one for each series. What is a blog tour, you ask? It’s a form of online publicity, like a traditional book tour except the stops are all virtual. Instead of going from bookstore to bookstore, the author goes from blog to blog–or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that either the author or the books go(es) from blog to blog. The tours are arranged by small businesses who maintain connections with active book bloggers–in my case TLC Book Tours and Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours. Some of the bloggers review the books, others interview the author or the characters, and occasionally they invite the author to write a guest post. The Margaret Kerr tour extends for two weeks from this past Monday, the Owen Archer extends through mid November–several bloggers are reviewing multiple books.

Here’s a guest post that I wrote before leaving for the world mystery convention (Bouchercon) last week, for the Owen Archer tour:

And an interview for the launch of the Margaret Kerr tour:

If you’d like to try your luck at winning e-books from either series, you can enter via any stop on the tours. The links are here:

It’s always wonderful to meet readers in person, as I did in Raleigh, NC, last week. But the blog tour is a delightful addition. Check it out!

  1. I would like to enter your giveaway, but when I visited the first blog of your tour and clicked on “enter” there was no place to enter my information. Can you help me, please? thanks

    • Hi Carol, did you scroll down to where it says “Log In”? You need to either log in with your facebook login or click on the button to enter your email address. (These are set up by my publisher, so I must admit I’ve never tried it myself.) I hope this helps! Candace
