You can do your own tour for minimal or zero cost, making it one of the most affordable methods of marketing your book. Blog tours can be effective for all types of books, all genres, upcoming releases, and already-published books. In this course, you'll learn the essential steps to planning and executing your own successful blog tour, plus tips for building relationships with book bloggers and creating a tour that stands out from the rest.

StoneHouse University
SHU was created by Aaron Patterson and K.C. Neal. Many authors are trying things on their own and the publishing world is changing so fast that it can be hard to keep up. SHU is here to teach writers and authors the skills they will need to write, publish and market their books. Classes and webinar's on writing a hook, to working with Amazon. Online classes will be held once a month, or more as the demand grows. We hope that SHU will be a help and a resource to anyone who wants to make a living writing.

  1. Are the classes interactive? This looks like a great idea; I'm seriously considering it.

  2. Yes, you can chat with others in the class and ask questions. At the end we will have time for questions. K.C. Neal is the host speaker and she is the best I have ever seen at Blog tours.
