We are starting to work on a virtual tour for another great title which is touring with Promo 101 Virtual Tours. This book is titled Frankie The Walk and Roll Dog by Barb Techel. This book touched me the first time I read it and the video might bring tears to your eyes – www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJcC_xRTeE0
Barb and Frankie are touring cyberspace during the month of June and we are looking for all kinds of great blogs that would like to share information with their readers about Barb, Frankie and the message they want to share. Barb is an “outside the box” and very creative woman – so we plan a great and very memorable tour. Is there a way we can work with you in this tour? There are some suggestions below on how to participate. Keep in mind that we promote your blog as part of the tour and we circulate your blog link on the day(s) you host Barb and Frankie to bring new visitors to your site. If you would like to talk about being part of this tour, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
