DIY book tour

Over at Glimmer Train, Alison Amend (a friend and former classmate of mine) provides a genuinely helpful and good-humored guide to planning your book tour on a shoestring.

Is it just me or have there been a few of these reality checks lately?  I’ve seen a few that mostly seem like cautionary tales for anyone who thinks there’ll ever be any money or pleasure in the writing game. It’s sobering to remember that all the blood, sweat, and tears that go into writing your novel will probably land you…a spot on an acquaintance’s couch in Cedar Rapids.

Out of sheer self-defense, I do my best to forget this information, at least while I’m trying to write.
