Chris, I'll be speaking at Javitz on the 31st as well (www.AccessToMega.com) and I hope our paths cross then.

We've never met, but I've been impressed at how profound Radical Transparency is (as a management style) ever since I read about it your book.

I'm very interested in learning more about your upcoming BourTour.com start-up, but can't make your "decloaking" session because I'm speaking around the same time :-(

Go get it man! Wish your start-up become a really really successful and sensational one.


Here's how it works:
Basically, during a Virtual Book Tour, an author (me) visits specific lineup of websites or weblogs, similar to a real-life book tour, where stops are made at brick-and-mortar bookstores. Each day, the author visits a different website, from the comfort of her living room. At each "stop", the author may be interviewed, make "blog" entries, answer questions from site visitors, submit their book for review, or any combination of the above. wow power leveling,What sets a virtual tour apart from real-life tours is that once the content is posted on a website, it's archived ?4/7?for later access, allowing those who couldn't visit on the appointed day to view the material at their leisure.

Booktours.com was inaccessible today, but I couldn't even get your later comment pages. About Booktours: How do you plan to publicize? by email to bookstores? by mail? by flyers? how about by fan? As a reader of this blog, I would be willing to send a few emails in my area. My favorite independent bookstore has its own email newsletter, and the association of indies sometimes puts out a group effort.

It's booktour.com, not booktours.com, Just click on the link in the post...

We'll be publicizing by web word of mouth...all we will be clear when we launch properly on July 9.

Thanks for pointing out this site. I’ve heard of Shelfari and GoodReads, but those are more for readers. This looks like a great way for authors to get the word out on their books and tour events. Thanks.
