Throwing a Book Launch Party (Part II)

This is the second post in a series. You can find out WHY you should throw a book launch party in Part I.

Where should I host my book launch party?

Online – More authors have begun using “Blog Tours” to promote the release of their work. This way saves time and money. You may be unlikely to draw any press to this method, but word of mouth by other readers and bloggers can be extremely powerful.

Please feel free to share your own experiences, comments and questions about book launches.

I have participated as a blog host and also as a reader at book blog tours. The drawback seems to be getting too much exposure with the same group of people with this method. Plus, it seems like this method needs a new infusion of originality in presentation. Any thoughts there?

I did a combination. I had a launch in a bookstore and then a couple of days after I held an online launch with a live-streamed reading from the book.
