Ideal creativity games would have you perform mental exercises tasking both the logical and the creative minds simultaneously, but this is seldom possible. The simple reality is that most available brain exercises fall slightly either side of this perfect balance. This makes a collection of mind games necessary to both develop the all important connection and the ability to transfer ideas between your creative-mind and your logical-mind.
Most writers are aware of virtual book tours for novels, some have taken a closer interest in them and some have run their own tour promoting their own novel.
But what if you are working on a non-fiction book?
Are Virtual book tours suitable for non-fiction works?
Jennifer Roland has asked these questions, found the answers and run a successful blog tour promoting her non-fiction book. Addressing a tight niche, in a technical market, her book’s marketing requirements are distinctly different from those of a fiction novel. If you are writing or considering a non-fiction work, then you will find her experiences most interesting.
In July I came across a blog tour that stood out from all the rest. At the time I was so impressed by it that I tweeted it out as a mark to measure yourself against when judging just how serious you are when promoting a published novel. The blog tour was the Deadly Intent Blog Tour and Camy Tang was the power house behind it. Covering forty five days it had over sixty venues, offered different content and used some innovative additions to the standard blog tour repertoire. All of this marked her tour as one that you can study and learn from.
Recently I was able to interview Camy about her tour and about the interesting extras that she included.
