I took the 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge!

♥Announcing the Igniting Mommy Energy Virtual Book Tour!!♥

I took the 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge!
I took the 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge!

Over the last 30 days I participated in “The Book Marketing Strategy” hosted by D’Vorah Lanskey because I needed a plan to market my first book, “Igniting Mommy Energy” due out June 21st.

Boy, did I learn a lot!

The most important subject for me was creating a Virtual Book Tour.  I am a mother of three children and a business owner so I don’t want to travel for a “real” book tour.  A virtual one works well with my priorities.

This tour will be my way of sharing more about “Igniting Mommy Energy” and why it’s so important to own your feelings so that you can be the best Working Mom you can be!  

I talk to clients about making brave work/life choices and believe allowing yourself to feel your feelings is the most courageous thing you can do.  When this happens it means you’re willing to take action because you’ll bravely face any emotions that bubble up!  This is when your Mommy Energy ignites and things become possible!

What is a Virtual Book Tour?

A Virtual Book Tour is when an author travels from blog to blog and writes about their new books topic.

Check out “The I.M.E. Virtual Book Tour”.

It’s a list that includes the blogs I’ll be visiting, the blog owner, and the date I’ll be visiting.  While on the blog I’ll be replying back to comments and socializing on Facebook and Twitter about the tour.  The goal of my Virtual Book Tour is to visit two blogs per week for the entire summer.

I can share now that the tour will kick off with Carin Kilby Clark from The Mommyhood Mentor.  We will be chatting on June 17th at 9PM EST on Google+ Hangout On Air, which means our talk will be open to the world to listen to.  Stay tune for more details!

On a side note for this tour, I’ll be on a local TV show, “Something to Talk About” with Linda McNamee on June 25th at 7PM EST.  The show will be posted on YouTube and the link will be posted on the I.M.E. Virtual Book Tour Page.


If you are interested in joining me on my Virtual Book Tour, I invited you to sign up for “The Mommy Energy E-zine” to stay in the loop!

If you are interested in being a part of my tour and would like me to visit your blog, please email me at lizzy@lizzymc.com.


♥♥♥A HUGE THANK YOU to D’vorah Lanskey for creating The Book Marketing Challenge and to Michael Bloom for telling me about it and inviting me!

I’ve learned much more than I’ve shared here and feel much more confident about telling the world about my book “Igniting Mommy Energy”.  Thank you!! ♥♥♥

  1. This was such a great experience! I think you have a topic that is so important — and look forward to your rise to the top of the experts in your field!

  2. Thanks for the comment Peg! So excited to get my message OUT THERE! (takes courage, right?)

    Congrats on your new book! I wanted to “pin” the quote on your page, but Pinterest wouldn’t recognize it. 🙁 Love your site and the concept of your book! Best of luck to you!

  3. Liz, you will inspire many other authors and mommy bloggers/authors to take their books on tours, virtually! Thanks for posting the dates for your tour, so we can be with you on your journey and get ideas for our own tours, along the way!

  4. Thank you, D’vorah! I am simply tickled pink that I found you, your website and your BOOK (21 Ways to Launch a Successful Virtual Book Tour!) xo

  5. Hello Liz, Goodness you are jumping in to create your Virtual Book Tour. I am working to complete my first book and feel incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to take the BM challenge.

    Feel free to sign up for my newsletter. The link in on the homepage of my website.
    Have a great day.

  6. Best of luck Liz, I love the book premise. As a mother of three, I do understand that Mommy Energy is required 24/7. And a word of warning, when they are grown, it doesn’t go away :).

  7. So excited for Igniting Mommy Energy and can’t wait for our G+ chat! The tour will be fantastic and I know your book will be a blessing to so many moms out there. Thank you!

  8. Hi Liz! Your work is so needed. Moms need all the support they can get when balancing both work and family. I’ve been a career counsellor for more than 20 years – primarily as a workshop facilitator. Recently switched to self-employment. My target market is somewhat older than yours. I work with Boomer women in transition – those who intend to work past retirement age. We may have ideas we can share with each other. You are definitely way ahead of me with technology! That’s my biggest struggle. Happy to meet you here. Here’s an idea: Want to review each other’s books? Let me know. I’m sure there’s some overlap of ideas.

  9. Hi Liz,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my FB fan page! Congrats on your new book–June 21st is just around the corner. You’re certainly juggling a lot with children, your book, and your book tour! Best of luck to you.

  10. Thanks, Desiree! It IS so needed. When we use up our M.E. on unimportant things, like the Mommy Wars or Mommy Guilt, it hurts us, our families, and our career. Thanks for the warning! I am living one day at a time at the moment, but it’s good to know I’m on the right path for taking care of my M.E. now! 🙂

  11. Hi Shirley! You are welcome! Thanks and I agree! Not going to stop until the world knows how important Mommy Energy really is!

  12. Hi Sally! I have returned the “like”! I would LOVE to compare notes! This is going to be quite an exciting adventure and would love to share my thoughts and results! Looking forward to connecting with you!

  13. Your welcome! YES!!! Thankfully I love to juggle! It’s been a fun and exciting adventure so far. I feel like it’s only going to get better!

  14. Congratulations on the successful launch of your book! And your niche is a well needed one! Bravo!
