In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.
In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.
Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.
We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.
