Sign up for this Virtual Book Tour and automatically receive a complimentary copy of this writing craft book!

So, I know that I'm on blogcation, but I just wanted to drop in to let you all know that I'm organizing a virtual book tour for my next pocket writing craft book, Book #2 of the Writing in a Nutshell Series, Adverbs & Clichés in a Nutshell: Demonstrated Subversions of Adverbs & Clichés into Gourmet Imagery.

Yes, another book. Care to sign up? You'll get a free can of virtual Adverbs & Clichés spray. How it works is, you spray it on your manuscript, and viola! the adverbs and clichés disappear. Did you know that adverbs and clichés smell like toilets when eradicated? So, I'll throw in a peg to pinch your nose together too. :-P (you know I'm joking, right?)

Anyhoo, I'm doing something a little different this time. I'm not just focusing on blogs. I'm getting Twitter and Facebook involved too. Here are the options on how you can take part:
  • Post a review on your blog. (PDF, mobi, ePub copies available)
  • Post a pre-written launch announcement on your blog. (I will supply a completed post in HTML which you can just copy/paste into your blog)
  • TwitterView (We engage in a conversation about the book on Twitter. Ten questions minimum. Questions and answers can be posted on our own time on your chosen date.)
  • Facebook Interview (We engage in a conversation about the book on Facebook. Ten questions minimum. Questions and answers can be posted on our own time within the same thread on your chosen date.)
If you sign up, you'll automatically get a free e-copy of the book in a choice of PDF, mobi, ePub formats.

Also please do me a favour and spread the word about this! Here are some pre-written posts for your convenience:
