Book Blog Tour Schedule for Something Furry Underfoot

Written by on September 24, 2013 No Comments

To get the word out about Something Furry Underfoot, I hired two marketeers, as I call them, which are people who market things like books.  One marketeer is Jenkins Group, a book marketing company in my home state of Michigan.  They got me set up with something  called ReviewDirect which reaches something like 18,000 librarians, book stores, colleges and universities. They also issued a press release on September 25 targeted to media and other folks who are at interested in pets. 

Meanwhile, my other marketeer, Stormi, from Lightning Book Productions, set up a virtual book blog tour for me.  That means my book will be talked about on various book blog sites from September 26- October 10 by people who blog about books from their homes in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Nigeria, and the United States.  The schedule of events is below.   

Also, check out my new video about Bumpkin, the domestic duck, by clicking on the Videos page of my web site.  Thanks!
