We are so super excited to finally be able to announce some of the details for the AUTHORS ARE ROCKSTARS Tour that we’re bringing to you this August.
We’ve been keeping it just a little bit quiet until we were sure we had enough rockstars signed on for this month-long event. But now that we do, we can finally tell you what it’s all about.
For many of us readers and book lovers, the authors who pen these books take on an idol-like status. Much like that of those musicians who fill stadiums with their fans. Well, musicians are great, but to us our favorite authors are the true rockstars. And so we wanted a chance to put them in the spotlight and what better way to do that than to send them out on tour for the month of August.
So, for the entire month of August we will be matching up the rockstar authors who have agreed to be on tour with the bloggers who idolize them.
On each day of the tour there will be one, two or possibly three authors being spotlighted for their rockstar status around the blogosphere. Each stop on the tour will be in the form of interviews or guest posts. Some tour stops will have giveaways. But all tour stops will be at blogs who think their authors rock.
Just to give you a tease at some of the amazing rockstars on the tour, we bring to you a lineup which includes Julie Kagawa, Rachel Vincent, Jeri Smith-Ready, Chloe Neill, Tahereh Mafi, Scott Tracey, Wendy Higgins, Maria V. Snyder, Victoria Schwab, Lisa Desrochers, Lesley Livingston, Jennifer Armentrout, Courtney Summers, Alyxandra Harvey, Bethany Griffin, Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and more…We said it was just a teaser. The full lineup will be announced in the sign-up post next week.
While we’d love to feature every single amazing author that we think are rockstars, there are only thirty-one days in the month and we couldn’t possibly juggle more than three stops a day. So, just because an author is not featured in no way means that we don’t think they’re rockstars.
Our sign-up post will go up next week, so if you want to be considered for the tour, be sure to check back at either Fiktshun or Two Chicks on Books for details. Sign-ups won’t be open for long so that we will have time to make the best matches possible between authors and the bloggers that adore them. So be sure to check back next week if you are interested in signing up and to find out if your favorite author will be on tour.
We already can’t wait until August to share our love for these amazing authors who have created worlds, stories and characters that have blown our minds, torn out our hearts, enchanted and transported us.
