A year ago, I didn’t even know what a blog tour was. Basically Memories of Me going on a virtual road trip with a note from it’s mother. For a three week period, various sites will feature the book with a review, spotlight, or giveaway.
The idea of putting together a blog tour, much less having bloggers signing up for it, was intimidating. However, with Cedar Fort’s help and wonderful bloggers signing up to participate, the Memories of Me blog tour is looking great! (There’s still a couple of spots left; interested bloggers can sign up on Cedar Fort’s blog.)
The following fabulous bloggers are taking part in the Memories of Me blog tour. Check them out. You’re sure to find other great books to add to your list of books to read. (Just make sure Memories of Me stays at the top of your list!)
