How Tours Work
Once your tour has been scheduled via our handy form, we will need some things from you: your book and author information. This includes: a cover image, blurb, an excerpt, buy links, your author bio and author photo. These will be used to put together media kits to send to bloggers, along with an invitation to host part of your virtual tour.
Bloggers will be emailed until your tour schedule is full. Once your schedule is created, you will receive the list of stops scheduled. You will be notified of any date changes and anything that is needed. We are available to answer any questions or to make suggestions.
Once your tour has started, we will promote it through various social networking venues, such as Facebook and Twitter. You are encouraged to visit each stop along your tour and make an effort to be actively involved – i.e., answering questions in blog comments, getting to know your readers. Please be sure to thank your host also, as good manners go a long way. Readers love authors who are willing to talk with them, whether it be responding to comments or questions left on the post or just posting to say a hello. It is also recommended that you post your tour schedule on your website and/or blog. Tweeting and posting links on Facebook and other social networking sites are encouraged. Remember, the more exposure your tour gets, the better it will be! While we cannot guarantee an increase in sales, these things will go a long way to helping make that happen.
We want your experience to be fun and stress-free because we love books just as much as you do!
