Author Marguerite Ashton Prepares For Virtual Book Tour
By: Criminal Lines Book Club
Emma Mitchell of EDM and Publicity Services who works with independent authors organized the event and helped give Ms. Ashton a fresh perspective about networking through social media.
"It was an exciting learning experience, and I'm grateful for Emma's positivity and focus as she helped put the blog tour together. I remember when she told me it was going to take eight weeks, and the first week was the most crucial. I was on pins and needles because that was the week when we'd learn how many bloggers would be interested in participating in the tour.
"When she told me how many bloggers signed up, I exhaled. You never realize who's out there to help put your novel in front of others until you reach out. I want to thank the bloggers who will be posting interviews and discussing my book in front of their readers. I'm looking forward to connecting with others during the tour."
Promised Lies introduces us to Detective Lily Blanchette who has a lot on her plate...
Her sister Celine has recently been murdered, her parents are on the brink of divorce, and Lily has married a man she barely knows while on the rebound. Now she's lead on a multiple murder investigation and determined to catch her man.
