If I am lost, you will find me in medieval England.

You can also find me - and my books - on my blog.

A Question....

I am currently planning a blog tour for the release of Queen of Martyrs (yay!) and my question to my dear bibliophile friends is this: What makes a blog tour effective?


Should I try to schedule guest blogs every couple days or spread them out over a longer period. If you see an author posting too frequently, do you start to ignore it? Also, what kind of posts do you like to see? Obviously, I will be writing on what made me choose Mary as my protagonist and some detail of her life, but what other kinds of posts make you consider choosing a book?


Sorry, I think that's more than one question.  ;-)


I appreciate any input. You guys are always so helpful!
