Anybody who has heard my radio programs or read my blogs, including my 5 days "Book Promotion on a Budget" will have heard my great beleive in online book promotion. One of the really great ways for getting your book out there and meeting other people along the way is a "Virtual Book Tour"

There are many companies and groups that run virtual tours. Tours where you visit locations, blogs, radio programs to share with readers and hosts about your book. This enables a writer to visits all parts of the world without leaving their desk. In the case of my virtual tour without leaving my sick bed.

Of all the companies I have known the best and one of the most reasonable virtual tours is with "Pump Up Your Book Promotion". A great group of ladies who go that extra mile to help an author promote their book.

Now after months of negotiations, badgering and down right blackmail I managed to get two of the founders of "Pump Up Your Book Promotion" or "PUYB" as it is easier to type, one my radio show tomorrow.

So many authors, have not only passed through the tours of PUYB many like myself staying friends with the group even after the tour is over, that the show has had to be extended to one hour. Also it looks like being to much for one person, so my fellow radio show host, writer and friend "Kim Smith" is co-hosting with me.

Join me tomorrow on "A BOOK AND TWO CHATS" as we talk to these ladies about their lives, writing, PUYB, and the special "Twelve days of Christmas tour."

"A BOOK AND TWO CHATS" - Tuesday 7pm EST

It will be fun!
