A virtual tour takes a book through online sites that feature content about the author and title during a short length of time. Virtual tours became popular when the value of book bloggers’ followings became apparent in terms of exposure, promotion, and book sales. On a virtual tour, the book is toured on blogs, forums, social networking pages, frequently updated websites, and video sites.  Content during a tour may include interviews, excerpts, author videos, book trailers, podcasts, original reviews, review snippets, endorsements, cover art, headshots, candids, author essays, articles, book giveaways and guest blog posts.

The Emeralds Virtual Book Tour launched on June 15, and will continue for the next month or so. Stops of the book tour are listed below. Specific urls will be updated as they come available.
