Virtual BookTours


As part of my book launch, I went on a virtual book tour during the month of June and then again in October and November 2012. Read the posts, excerpts, reviews, and Q & As, and leave your comments, or listen to the podcasts.

Write your book on the internet one post at a timeThanks for coming along for the fun and participating in my book launch. Oh, and don’t forget to buy a copy of How to Blog a Book, Write, Publish and Promote Your Work One Post at a Time (Writer’s Digest Books). You can get more information on my website. You can purchase the book in several places:

Nina Amir


Facebook and Twitter PHOTO Campaign Find a copy of How to Blog a Book in your local bookstore, and take a photo of yourself with the book (preferably because you are buying it). Then post it on Facebook (and on Twitter if possible) and tag me in your status update so it appears on my Facebook timeline. You then WIN a FREE 15-minute blog-to-book coaching session!

Twitter Tip campaign: For several months I posted a tip a day with the #howtoblogabook hashtag; you could retweet the tip to win a free 15-minute blog-to-book coaching session–one given away each week on Twitter. You can still find the tips by searching for #howtoblogabook in the Twitter search engine. The contest has, however, ended. Follow my Twitter Feed (!/ninaamir).
