You know how I’ve been going on and on about some mysterious â€˜secret project’? I’ll bet you thought that project was code for â€œBryce is too lazy to write anything.â€ I don’t blame you. I would have thought the same. However, I’m getting close to a public beta, so I think it’s time I spill the beans and prove that I’m not just some shiftless excuse-maker.
Here’s the skinny on my secret project.

It’s a website.
A website for authors who have a book for sale. Also, It’s a website for bloggers. Let’s be crazy – it can also be a website for bloggers that have a book for sale.
The purpose of the site is to help people set up blog tours for their books. And to help bloggers get stuff to post from authors who are on â€œBlog Tour.â€
So without further ado, let me introduce you to BlogTour.org:
Within a couple of days or so (hopefully by Saturday), I’m going to upload the site from my testing server. In the meantime feel free to check out the â€œunder constructionâ€ site as much as you want. Once uploaded, I’ll still have a lot to do but at least the core functionality will be available.
If you want to know the minute it’s up and running, you can follow the BlogTour.org Twitter account, or watch the BlogTour.org RSS feed.
As soon as I launch, I’d like to ask you all a couple of favors â€“ sign up and help me test the thing, then pass the word along.
