Calling all teen bloggers

Jill Williamson is our guest this week on Go Teen Writers. Check out the interview about her writing process and get yourself entered to win one of her award winning books by clicking here.

Also, if you're a teen blogger and a fan of free books (and who isn't, really?), Jill sent me some information on an upcoming Novel Teen blog tour:



Here is the scoop. Myself and some of the other Novel Teen authors are putting together a Novel Teen Blog Tour, and we are looking for interested bloggers.

What is a blog tour? A blog tour is a specific date where a group of bloggers all write a post about a specific book or the book's author in an effort to help spread the word about that title. For now, Novel Teen will only be doing about five-ten books a year, so this isn't something that will happen too often. Less than once a month for sure.

What's in it for you? Free paperback copies of whatever novels we tour.

What kinds of novels will you tour? We will tour novels written by Novel Teen bloggers. You can find a list of our bloggers on the About Us page of the www.NovelTeen.com website. For now, we plan to tour novels by Melanie Dickerson, Heather Burch, Nicole O'Dell, and Jill Williamson. But should any of our other Novel Teen contributors release a new novel, we will tour their books as well.

How does it work? If you are interested, you would follow the link at the bottom of the page and join the Team Novel Teen Yahoo group. You will receive a welcome email. Then you will not hear from us until we are ready for the first blog tour.

At that time, we will send an email inviting you to join that particular blog tour. We will share information about the book, the author, and the date chosen for the tour. If you are interested, you will reply with your mailing address. If you are not interested in that book, you do not reply.
If you were interested, the book will be mailed to you. You will read it, write a review, and post the review on the specified date. We would also appreciate your posting your review on one or more of the following: Amazon.com, B&N.com, ChristianBook.com, GoodReads.com, or Shelfari.com.

And that's it!

  1. Maybe I'll have to think about it some.

  2. That's so cool! But I've already been asked, and my mom said probably not. Oh well.....

  3. Is there an age limit? (I'll be nineteen next month, not sure if that disqualifies me from being a 'teen')

  6. Hi, guys! Thanks for your interest in the new blog tour.

    No, you do not have to be a teenager, though you must love to read fiction for teens and you must love to blog. (You don't have to blog only about books.)

    You only have to review and blog about the books you request. If a book is offered and it doesn't interest you, you are under no obligation to ask for a copy and you are welcome to remain in the group.

    I have no idea about the inner-workings of Google and FB and Yahoo... Sometimes my computer doesn't let me log in either. I usually have to restart the thing to get it to work. Perhaps my computer is old and busted, I dunno...

    I can add any member if I have their email. So if you want to join and are having difficulties, send your email address to jill@jillwilliamson.com and I will invite you myself.

    Thanks, everyone! And thanks, Stephanie, for sharing about the blog tour.
    :-)
    Jill

Disagreement is welcome. Rudeness is not. Please be considerate of each other!
