Want to take a little trip together? It’s easy — no pre-planning, no packing, no traveler’s diarrhea. This is a blog tour. I have some publicity people (as in my people call their people though I’m my people and they their two people), and Barb set up a blog tour for the new book (“Now Playing: Stoner & Spaz2”): Here are the stops. Check out a couple and let me know what you think:

I’ll tell you what I’m most interested in — do you think something like this sells books? Remember — I’m not the only writer on the block. The sites post new/different authors all the time. Why would my day-at-the-blog entice someone to buy my book and not the person right before or right after me?
Anyway, nice to see you all again. I’ll be a regular contributor for awhile.
Great to see you back on the Inkpot, Ron! You've been missed!!
Well, well, well… Hey, Ron. I scored access to the Inkpot. Pretty cool, huh? Welcome aboard…again! :0)
I checked out a couple of the blogs and I have to say those interviews look like a lot of work–but you're very good at it. Nice tone, casual but snappy. Slightly in their face, but welcoming at the same time.
How does one tell what generates sales? Any ideas?
