Nurture Your Books Tourz.

A heartfelt thank you to Nurture Your book Tourz.  Today is the last stop of the Tour and what a finale – the  blog's guest spot on Nurture’s Blog spot for Stone Relic is wonderful. I am so glad I made the decision to do the tour with them.  
Firstly,  on a practical level the organizers are so professional, and oversee the whole ethos of the book right down to the minutiae with the addition of exciting banners.  Care was taken that I had the right book cover together with minor details that are important and as a first-time  novelist I overlooked.  
In the first transactions, I became more and more confident I had made the right choice. If there are any questions, they are answered without delay.  Advice is offered on every step of the tour,  so one is not left wondering what the next step will be.  The reviewers are definitely experienced readers and some of them also writers with high literary values.  This is evident in the reviews themselves.  The reviews are perceptive, incisive and in depth, picking up motifs in the book as well as appreciating the interweaving of the various  threads making up the story and plot.  A couple of reviewers  commented on how the dialogue drove the plot which was exactly my technique. Stone Relics is definitely character driven
Now apart from  the business professionalism,  I was touched by the care given to the book and the author .  Nurture not only promote the book efficiently, they care and that for me is the most important value I can think of. Not only do they care about the book they care about the author and make sure that the tour is a pleasant and fulfilling experience. Each stop on the tour went smoothly and each day I could see the growth of the book in the market place. 
I have received emails commending the book as well as people visiting my website and here in this very new blog.
So a big thank you to Bobbie Crawford,  and Jaidis Shaw and the crew together with the  reviewers at Nurture Your Books Tourz.  I highly recommend  them to any writer aspiring to get their book out in the marketplace.
