Rolf’s “virtual book tour” is underway!

Just a quick note here to let you know that the “virtual book tour” for my book Marco Polo Didn’t Go There is underway. It started with a Q&A at Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Work Week and Lifestyle Design Blog, and will continue with a series of Q&As and short essays on a number of great travel blogs over the course of two weeks. I’ve listed rundown of these “virtual book tour” blog stops by date below.

You’ll also want to check out the page I’ve set up for my nationwide book tour — which starts in Kansas and will hit nearly 20 U.S. cities before it ends in southern California just before Thanksgiving. Come on out and see me in places like Chicago, New Orleans, Minneapolis, New York, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, or Los Angeles! If you can’t make it in person, I’ll be keeping a book tour blog at Gadling starting September 29th.

In other book-release news, Pauline Frommer interviewed me about Marco Polo Didn’t Go There for her “Travel Show” on WOR Radio yesterday (to listen, click “Hour 2″ of the September 14th show).

  3. Nomadic Matt Says:

    cant wait to read the book but why such a limited exposure? I mean BNT/MATADOR are the same site really (lots of traffic though but aren’t you doubling up?) and the lost girls get hardly any traffic…at least you got vagabondish
