Lone Star Book Blog Tours
Tabatha Pope,
Blog Tour Coordinator














Librarian Tabatha Pope of Houston is a fifth-generation Texan and self-described promoter, wife, mommy, music lover, book nerd, and closet Goth. When her nose isn't in a book, or she's not chasing her kids around, you’ll find her working on her own writing.


She loves romance, suspense, supernatural/paranormal, zombies, faeries, history, and baseball, and is in serious need of an intervention for her genealogy addiction. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America and YARWA.

About Book Blog Tours

Despite the wealth of opportunities for audiences to meet authors
around Texas any day of the week (witness the dozens of readings and signings in our weekly Bookish

Texas list), it’s not always possible for authors to participate in bookstore appearances as often as they’d like, to connect with their readers and fans.


Enter the Book Blog Tour. A fast-and-furious schedule of author Q&As with readers and interviewers, guest posts, reviews, and promotions, the blog tour gives authors a chance to let readers know what’s new, and followers a chance to interact with them. Beginning this month, Lone Star Book Blog Tours will take the show on the digital road with novelists, historians, naturalists, biographers, young adult authors, and more, helping introduce book lovers to new titles and new ideas.


Connecting Texas books and writers with those who most want to discover them
