If I was John Grisham or JK Rowling you can bet my private jet would be swooping into your town on a grand book tour, with an entourage of slaves to hold the hardbacks open and massage my signing hand. But alas, I've got to go to work and these are credit crunch times, so the book tour is all virtual!
Would you get a load of the Official Book Tour Logo? I was trying to learn from my incompetence during the UK release and be a sleek and organised machine for Dietgirl USA. I had a grand brand vision of the book with aeroplane wings, travelling round the world, but of course I've left it til 11 o'clock the night before the tour. All I can find on Google Images is stupid angel wings, so it looks like the book is DEAD and chuffing on up to heaven. I hope that's not an omen.
Over the next two weeks the tour will visit eleven kindly bloggers. There'll be interviews, guest posts, audio, video and giveaways. Here's the schedule in full – I'll update each stop with a direct link and more info as they go live:
