The Virtual Book Tour Schedule - Connecting @Home in Dubai to the Blogosphere

-->

I’m excited to share the plans for the Virtual Book Tour for @Home in Dubai…Getting Connected Online and on the Ground, which is taking shape quite nicely. The tour will run from Dec. 12-17 and feature some of my favourite bloggers (and stars of the expat and Dubai blogger world). There are more in the works but as of today I’m thrilled to announce the following blogs that I’ll be visiting on the tour:

Dec. 12 – Launch Day is going to be a very exciting and busy day!  We kick off with a review on Katie Foster’s, Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures as well as an interview/book review with Maria Foley (fellow Canadian and intercultural communications expert) at I Was an Expat Wife. I’ll also be sharing some quick tips on writing and publishing a book and setting up your online platform that will air on Jo Parfitt's Writers Abroad radio show.

Dec. 13 – I’ll be dropping by The Cat for a guest blog and will announce the rules for a fun contest that blogger Jan D’Sa and I have cooked up. Stay tuned for details. On the same day I'll be visiting Lynda Martinez's blog Longhorns and Camels.

The day will wrap up with Linda Janssen sharing her thoughts on @Home in Dubai with a book review in on her blog, Adventures in Expatland… and I’ll be popping by for sure to give it a read. 

Dec. 14 - I'll swing by Jetsettlers Magazine and do a guest post on getting connected 'then and now' and also drop by for a short visit with Expat Women.

Dec. 15 - My friend, Susan Castle (Susan the Coach) from Outwith the Dots will be hosting me on her blog as I explore the all important the Big 5 Personality Traits of successful expats that I first came across on Maria Foley's blog.  I will also return to Writer's Abroad and share some Blog Tour Secrets that I've learned as I go through this process.

Dec. 16 – The tour will find me happily digging my toes in the sand at Grace Fujimaki's Sandier Pastures with a guest blog on escaping into the desert.

Dec. 17 – I’m thrilled to say that I’ll be wrapping up tour week 2011 with a guest blog on connecting with your angels on fellow blogger and author, Zvezdana Rashkovich’s blog, Sleepless in Dubai
There are more to come on board in 2012 so I’ll be posting updates as they come in!

*There will also be a Book Blast on launch day when all my friends, family, colleagues and anyone connected to the book will post on Facebook and LinkedIn and Tweet the following message: 
@Home in Dubai launches today! Full of advice for #expats moving to Dubai. Get it on Amazon http://amzn.to/vZJKYW #dubaiconnection” 
- Feel free to join in on the Book Blast on Dec. 12 – you could even schedule your Tweet now so you don’t forget.  See you then :)

Hi Callista,
Thanks for stopping by! I'm pretty flexible on what I review. If it's soemthing that grabs my interest but it doesn't fit with the blog I can do a review on Amazon and/or GoodReads.

I'll email you and we can explore this further!
