Virtual Book Tour

Mark Sarvas, who writes one of our favorite literary blogs The Elegant Variation, points us to the Virtual Book Tour. Authors have "toured" literary-related blogs in the past, but VBT now offers such tours (which has the author both blogging and interviewing with bloggers) as a commercial service. MJ Rose is one author who has participated in the tours. The business is the brainchild of Kevin Smokler, who recently argued that the book business is picking back up. Kevin’s blog points us to a Chicago Tribune  profile of Jessa Crispin of Book Slut fame. (The article quotes Julia Bannon of Harper Collins, who lists Book Slut, Beatrice.com, Chicklit.com, Bookreporter.com and Curledup.com as the "top literary Web sites.")
