The Future of UK Book Tours

For some time now I have been thinking really hard about the future of UK Book Tours and I have finally made a decision that I can no longer run it and I hope you believe me when I tell you that this was not an easy decision to make. I have literally agonised about it for months now. I’ve really enjoyed founding and running UK Book Tours but it costs me a lot, both in time and money. Everything comes out of my own pocket and I'm juggling my time between working full time, running my book blog, writing, and being a domestic goddess (HA!). Sadly, I can no longer sustain the site and so I’m afraid I’m bowing out. So I leave you with two options and I need your help to decide what we’re going to do...

1. Option one is to carry on with the current tours and then close the site down.

2. Option two is to have someone else run the site in my place.

I’d be really grateful if you could let me know what you think about this and I’d be very open to receiving offers to run the site. Just e mail me and let me know why you’re the right person for the job! However, think carefully about the realities of running the site before you apply.

It’s been really fun running the tour site (apart from the one blogger who stole my personal copies). We’ve been really fortunate that Royal Mail has only lost one of the many books that have been on tour. I hope you’ve all enjoyed reading the tour books and I thank you all for the continued support.
