What really happens on book tours

I think book tours are so 2000s.  Or however you reference the last decade.  At least that's what publishers would have you believe. These days, it's the rare author who gets a tour, and it's the even rarer one who has a full audience. (Although last year I went to Alyson Noel's signing at Powells Beaverton and every seat was filled and each person literally had a dozen books for her to sign.  That's the kind of tour everyone dreams of and few - very few - people get.)

I love this guy's description of his book tour nd general promotion efforts, which will ring a bell for any author.

And here' the diary of my very first book tour in 2000
