The EDC Creations Virtual Book Tours features authors who are sharing their new books with the world. The authors will travel from blog to blog, radio show to radio show meeting their fans. Each stop on our virutal tours should increase the readership of an author, but more importantly open readers for new adventures!

Explore the pages of this website often to keep up with the authors on tour. Please leave your comments, questions, and observation at each post. The authors really want to hear from you and so do I.

What is a Cyber Book Tour?


A EDC Creations Virtual Book Tour consists of an author or poet “stopping” at a pre-determined number of websites, blogs, chatrooms, and radio shows in a given about of time, the same as they would do at bookstores during a real world author’s tour. At these promotional stops, the author may be interviewed, may become the guest blogger of the day, may answer questions from readers and reviewers, get their book reviewed by the readers or share audio presentations created by EDC Creations.

Our EDC Creations Virtual Book Tours empowers authors to connect their books with avid readers through viral marketing, article writing, interactive reader’s discussions and so much more. On the tours we display: excerpts from the new book, exclusive author interviews, reviews, bibliographies, photos of events, book blurbs, links to related sites or videos, material that didn’t make it into the book, blogs in regards to today’s current affairs, discussion group chatter, audio and video, and even live event footage.


What We Ask of the Readers


We ask the readers to meet and greet the authors. Welcome them to our family and this huge literary world. As a reader you often times see more within a book than the author! You often times have questions that weren’t answered in the book—ask the hard questions, give your opinions! Listed below are some of the areas we need your comments and help making the authors welcome.

Online chats.  The authors on tour will host a number of chats with bookclubs. Bookclubs feel free to invite the authors into your fold as well. EDC Creations has chat capabilities set up for the authors through which readers and authors can interact at any time, from any place. Read the stops list for up to date information. If you have a chat room, feel free to invite us:
Lectures and Workshops.   Many of our authors and tour sponsors are experts in their fields and eagerly share their knowledge with our fanbase. Tune in to learn insider tips from the publishing world; meet the author behind the book; educate your community on our vast selection of community outreach programs.
 Cyber Readings.   We will have weekly live author readings and/or through the telephone-, video-, and web-conferencing, we would like for you to join us. As you join us for a reading call in and reply or just leave your ratings in any of the comment boxes.

 Media Interviews.  The authors and our tour sponsors are appearing on radio, television, and print platrforms. The updates will be posted here, visit often. Check out their tour schedule and visit the authors on their stops. It makes them feel loved! They will be interviewd by journalists and radio show hosts about their books and ideas.

 Audio Presentations.   EDC Creations is the founder of the Sankofa Literary Society audio bookclub. Sign up for our newsletter for a weekly audio presentation in your email.

 Email and Websites.  Our authors post their email addresses so that readers can correspond with them one on one. Reach out to them and share your thoughts; stop by their websites and read all their news too!
