Virtual Book Fairs - Do they work?

In answer to my title question - I have no response, as yet.  I am about to embark on the  first virtual book fair that I have ever done, so in a couple of weeks I may have some sort of answer.  

I would say, that it's a phenomenal amount of work... so I hope that there are positive outcomes.  What have you found?  Can you give any tips for getting the most out of this type of event?

As a break from my constant rabbiting on about my new book  (The Love in a Hopeless Place Collection - in case you missed all the hype ;-) ), I am going to be handing over my blog to fellow scribes from around the world and across genres, for the duration of the Blogger Book Fair (BBF) from the 22nd-26th July.

The Blogger Book Fair is a bi-annual event where authors celebrate and showcase each other's work. There are book bargains/freebies/competitions and general literary fun – just like a real book fair but without the travel.

For my own contribution, I have reduced ALL my books to 99c/76p/89€ for the duration of the event.  So, if you need to fill your e-reader for the holidays... now is the time!

Here are the bloggers who will be visiting and showing their wares - and who in return, will be hosting me, on the same dates, on their blogs:

22nd July    Caitlyn Nicholas
                   Jamie Campbell

23rd July     Emily Tippets
                   Penelope Reece

24th July     Leslie R. Wright

25th July     Aria Glazki 
                   Barbara Billig

26th July     Don Wooldridge

So, here we go - all the fun of the fair... enjoy and hope you enjoy my guests' posts.
