When you’ve got a book coming out in the world, everybody is going to start asking you the same question: 

 “Are you going on a book tour?” 

 My answer, after 20 years in the book business, is an emphatic NO! 

In this video explains why—and what to do instead. Filmed just five weeks before my own book hits shelves, this video will give you practical advice for picking the right events FOR YOU, at the time your book launches. 

You’ll learn: 

  • Why publishers no longer put most authors on bookstore tours 
  • Which events I am doing for the launch of The Book You Were Born to Write 
  • The “rule” I used when deciding which events to book—which is basically the same rule I use for every decision I make 

Watch now and start planning the events you want to book when your own world-changing book launches!
