Teaching Kids to Be Good People Blog Tour

February 28, 2013

As a published author, of course I know about book tours. Not that I’ve ever actually been on one, but I’ve attended other authors’ events at Book Passage. So, yeah. I understand the concept. What I didn’t get, until recently, is “What’s a blog tour?” Turns out it’s pretty much the same thing as a book tour without the books, the bookstore, or the fans eager to buy an autographed copy.

Not all teachers are parents, but all parents are teachers

Since I’ve got a new book I’m rather proud of and zero publicity budget, starting today,  I’m on the (virtual) road with the Teaching Kids to Be Good People Blog Tour (Feels like we need a theme song. I’ll work on it.) At each of the nineteen stops along the tour, there is no stump speech. You, my dear readers, will be treated to totally new and thought provoking content to help us 21st century parents raise nice kids who also do good in the world.

Here’s where you can find me and when:

I know it's a virtual tour, but I want this bus!

  1. So this is what a blog tour is!! It’s on my to-do list, and I even have a e-course downloaded onto my computer about these virtual book tours. I’ve been a bit intimidated, but I must say that you make it look fun! If you get that bus, can I come along? It rocks.

    I’m amazed by Teaching Kids to Be Good People, and I’m excited to start following around on this tour. Hey — does that make me a virtual roadie? Sweet!

  2. Hi Tanya. This is my version of a blog tour. I’m pretty sure there aren’t any rules and if there are, who cares? LOL Not sure if this makes you a virtual roadie or virtual groupie. Either way, there’s plenty of room on the bus for all! Welcome aboard!
