The Virtual Book Tour

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 08, 2003

The Virtual Book Tour is off and running with author Mary Roach and her book Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. The idea of the VBT is to have authors tour web sites much like they do bookstores. kottke.org is a stop on this tour (view the tour schedule)…Mary will be taking over the posting duties here next Wednesday, July 16.

kottke.org also participated in the first virtual book tour for Rainy Day Fun and Games for Toddler and Total Bastard by Greg Knauss.

Update: Keep an eye on the Amazon Sales Rank for Stiff to see if this virtual tour business directly affects sales.
