On What It Costs to DIY A First Book Tour

It’s great to do everything you can to promote your book which you obviously pour a lot of time and energy into, but I think you could have used your money more effectively. Publicists who work with books know how to arrange a tour, rather than hiring a separate tour manager. On top of that, publishers are sending authors on tour less and less because it doesn’t sell books so it’s not worth the money. You can do interviews and media from home. I hope sales pick up for you, and it's great that you've sold how many you have so far, but I also hope people don’t read this and think it’s entirely necessary to spend their money this way.
