BookBlasts & Tours
I can create a blog tour package to meet your specific needs & budget. Books must be "family friendly" & be books I am comfortable promoting and think will be well received. This includes clean romance, young adult books that don't push the limits, children's books, books by LDS authors, etc. If you books falls into a different genre please contact me so we can discuss if I am a good match for your book.
A Book Blast is designed to get your book in front of lots of people. It helps builds your social media followings (twitter, facebook, goodreads, etc). Your book information gets posted on multiple blogs on the same day. Included is an amazon gift card giveaway that encourages people to add your book to their goodreads shelf, follow your twitter, like your facebook fan page, etc. Exposure is what a blast is all about, don't expect to see a dramatic sales increase. This is a tool to gain exposure for you and your book.
A Book Tour consists of book reviews, author interview, guest posts, tens lists, excerpts, etc. The length of the tour depends on which tour package you choose. Tours run from 1 week up to a month in length. To have the book reviewed you must have ebook copies available or be willing to ship printed copies.
Note to Self Published Authors regarding blog tours:
I do set up blog tours for self published books. I've set up several very successful tours for self published books and many of my favorite authors self publish. However if you have never been professional published and your book has only been read and reviewed by your family & friends please don't approach me about doing a blog tour at this point. My reviewers will likely not be able to give you a good review and it will be a waste of your time & money. If however your books has been reviewed, critiqued, revised and properly edited then I would be happy to discuss setting up a blog tour. Also please be aware that people do judge a book by it's cover. I can get your book into the hands of reviewers but I can't guarantee they will like it or be able to give it a good review.
Blast & Tour
The best of both worlds! Promotion of your book will kick off with a book blast on multiple site. It will then be followed up with the actual blog tour which can include reviews, interviews, guest posts, excerpts, tens lists, etc.
