Announcing the Authors Are Rockstars Tour

We are so super excited to finally be able to announce some of the details for the AUTHORS ARE ROCKSTARS Tour that we’re bringing to you this August.

We’ve been keeping it just a little bit quiet until we were sure we had enough rockstars signed on for this month-long event. But now that we do, we can finally tell you what it’s all about.

For many of us readers and book lovers, the authors who pen these books take on an idol-like status. Much like that of those musicians who fill stadiums with their fans. Well, musicians are great, but to us our favorite authors are the true rockstars. And so we wanted a chance to put them in the spotlight and what better way to do that than to send them out on tour for the month of August.

So, for the entire month of August we will be matching up the rockstar authors who have agreed to be on tour with the bloggers who idolize them.

On each day of the tour there will be one, two or possibly three authors being spotlighted for their rockstar status around the blogosphere. Each stop on the tour will be in the form of interviews or guest posts. Some tour stops will have giveaways. But all tour stops will be at blogs who think their authors rock.

Just to give you a tease at some of the amazing rockstars on the tour, we bring to you a lineup which includes…

Julie Kagawa, Rachel Vincent, Jeri Smith-Ready, Chloe Neill, Tahereh Mafi, Scott Tracey, Wendy Higgins, Maria V. Snyder, Victoria Schwab, Lisa Desrochers, Lesley Livingston, Jennifer Armentrout, Courtney Summers, Alyxandra Harvey, Bethany Griffin, Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and more…

We said it was just a teaser. The full lineup will be announced in the sign-up post next week.

While we’d love to feature every single amazing author that we think are rockstars, there are only thirty-one days in the month and we couldn’t possibly juggle more than three stops a day. So, just because an author is not featured in no way means that we don’t think they’re rockstars.

Our sign-up post will go up next week, so if you want to be considered for the tour, be sure to check back at either Fiktshun (here) or Two Chicks On Books for details.

Sign-ups won’t be open for long so that we will have time to make the best matches possible between authors and the bloggers that adore them. So be sure to check back next week if you are interested in signing up and to find out if your favorite author will be on tour.

We already can’t wait until August to share our love for these amazing authors who have created worlds, stories and characters that have blown our minds, torn out our hearts, enchanted and transported us.

But in the meantime, the tour button is below if you’d like to grab it.

UPDATE: If you copy the code from this post you may need to fix the quotation marks in the code as it may convert them from straight quotes to smart quotes. If you grab the code from under the button in the sidebar you definitely won’t have to adjust it.

      I hope so too! I have no idea how many sign-ups or which authors will be will have more requests than others. But you should definitely sign up! 🙂

  3. Fangirl squeal! What an cool event! You girls know how to get our attention. Cannot wait for sign ups and to see the rest of this already amazing list! Yes, I may be stalking you all more too!
    Crossing fingers and toes we can be a part of this as well!

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      Thanks! We like to go big! Why have an event if it’s just going to be a lot of work and not a lot of awesome? And we have so many more authors than just the few teaser ones listed. It’s so awesome!

      You should totally sign up for the event!

  4. Oh my gosh. I’m sooo freaking excited! You totally had me at Julie Kagawa… but wait, there’s Rachel Vincent, Tahereh Mafi, Brodi Ashton and Maria V. Snyder and and… I really can’t wait!!! *starts jumping up and down* Fiktshun and Two Chicks on Books are ROCKSTARS! 😀

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      And there are way more than those. But we’re keeping those under wraps until we have the sign-up post go live. Thanks! But it’s totally the authors that are rockstars!

  5. Button on my blog! I’m be eagerly waiting for that sign-up.

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      Haha and woo hoo! Can’t wait to see what you’ll say on that sign-up form! 😉

  6. Nina Reads says:

    I am so signing up for this, as you’ve already named some of my all time favorite authors in Rachel Vincent, Chloe Neill and Maria V. Snyder! Great tour idea!:)

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      Oh awesome! I never expected so many authors to sign on. I figured we’d get maybe a handful and then the rest would be just bloggers just sharing the love. But the turnout is amazing on the author side! And I’m hoping we’ll have a great turnout on the blogger side, too!

  7. Vivian says:

    So awesome! I am def signing up! 🙂

  8. Carmen says:

    Woah, so many awesome authors o.O
    I’d love to be part of this, but I don’t think I’ve been blogging long enough / have enough content up yet to be eligible :/ But I’m really looking forward to everyone’s posts! It’s a great idea 🙂

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      You should definitely sign up! If you have an author that’s a rockstar to you and you’ve read and reviewed their work, then it can’t hurt to sign up!

  9. Jamie Ayres says:

    Wonderful idea–some truly great authors already signed up!! I hope all goes well b/c I think this would be a cool thing to do every summer:-)

  10. Lis Carcamo says:

    That sounds so amazing good!!!
    Can’t wait to August!

  11. Becky says:

    OMG – what an amazing collection of authors.

  12. Ana Lucía says:

    This is when having a blog comes in handy *sigh* Mine is never going to see the light of day. -__-
    Love the idea by the way. 🙂

  13. Suzanne says:

    Oh this sounds awesome. Hopefully I’ll get to sign up. I’ll be stopping back to check in 🙂

  14. Wah I’m having trouble putting the button on my blog. But weeeeeeeeeeeeeee! This sounds like an amazing event!! 🙂

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      Hey Kaitlyn, it’s because the quotes switch out to smart quotes and that doesn’t work with code. If you use the grab code on the sidebar it won’t do that, or you can just change the quote marks manually. Sorry about that. The code box doesn’t insert into posts on WP the same as blogger and I hadn’t figured out how to make it happen. And though I have it pasted as plain text, copying keeps changing it. 🙁

  15. Ashley G says:

    This sounds awesome!!! I’ve told people before that authors are my rockstars! I’ll definitely sign up for this!! Crossing my fingers I’ll get picked!!!

  16. Amanda P says:

    This looks like so much fun! I can’t wait to sign up. Hopefully I wont miss it. I work weird hours and miss a lot of stuff that happens earlier in the day. But I’ll be on the look out. =)

    It’s not on a first-come, first-served basis. And sign-ups will be open until Sunday so there is some time. Good luck! We have a great group of authors already on board.
