Authors Are Rockstars On Tour: Announcing the Tour Stops



We are super thrilled to announce the line-up for the 2ND ANNUAL AUTHORS ARE ROCKSTARS TOUR! While there are a few spots still available, should we get any last-minute adds, we wanted to post the list of participating authors and bloggers now!

Currently we have 166 confirmed stops on tour this August. Which means that most days will have five or more stops. And who knows? We may just reach our magic number of 186 before the tour is over.

We are so excited for this tour to begin on August 1st. As it's just a couple of weeks away we don't have too much longer to wait. Which is a good thing. The anticipation is killing us!

The tour will consist of guest posts and interviews - and a few bloggers have even mentioned they'll be adding reviews to their posts. Some of the stops may even have giveaways hosted by the author or the blogger or both. And every blogger will also be sharing their reason why they think the author they're hosting is a rockstar.

So if you want to know why the bloggers on tour think their author rocks, be sure to visit all the stops.

When we started this event last year, we wanted the community to be able to join in something fun together and we wanted to put the authors that make each and every day of blogging worthwhile in the spotlight. We think we accomplished that. And we hope that we can achieve that again this year.

And what would make this event even more awesome is for you to check out a few - or all - of the stops on tour, say "hi" to the authors and blogger hosts on the tour and to share your thoughts about your favorites in the comments.

The tour will kick-off on each of our blogs with information about the upcoming tour and with the month-long giveaways we are hosting on August 1st. We will also be hosting the first three authors on the tour that day.

If we have any new adds to the tour, we will update the schedule in this post. So be sure to check back before August 1st to see the most up-to-date schedule!
