Technology has made it easier than ever to reach wider audiences no matter where they are in the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box and you can market a self-published book in creative ways, affordably and impactfully. This is where book tours come in: Tours are a great way to connect with your readers and technology has made them easier and cheaper than ever!
Author Thomas Noel Smith is taking his latest book Tales of Charm, Balderdash, and Yarns Somewhere In Between, on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. Thomas will be able to take his book to the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of his own home! Keep an eye out for Thomas’s book as he will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!
