WHAT IS A BOOK BLOG TOUR?
A book blog tour is a virtual tour to help an author promote their book without traveling. It’s the same concept as going to a store or event signings but instead of physical places, the author is going from blog to blog during the time frame of the tour. It’s just one form of PR that reaches all the readers/followers of the blogs who participate in the tour. Tour “stops” will be a combination of reviews and guest/promotional posts that make the tour interesting and hopefully encourage readers to buy/read the book.There is also typically a tour giveaway that help draw readers to participate. Usually, the publisher/author will offer a certain number of eBooks (or prints if available and able) as the giveaway as well as a signed print copy or two and possibly swag such as bookmarks, bookplates, or something specific to the book like bracelets inspired by the novel, or an Egyptian steampunk necklace the author thought really went with her book. Granted, giveaways vary from tour to tour, author to author, and is also not mandatory, just a nice touch and a great draw for reader participation.
We have around 1,000 blogs/participants who are on our notification list that participate in our events. The participants decide if the book interests them and sign-up for the tour. We typically average 20-55 blogs per tour (we cap at 55 on tours) depending on the interest of the book.
We organize everything and are the go-between with the review blogs and Marketing Associate/Publicist or author depending on who is working with us. The author works on the type of posts we assign to the tours (interview questions we send, etc) about 3 weeks before the tour starts and then sit back and enjoy the tour once it begins.
GENERAL PROMOTIONAL SERVICES OVERVIEW
Full length novels: Currently scheduling for May 2015 and after.
Novellas: Currently scheduling for mid – late April 2015 and after.
A blog tour is a scheduled event where multiple blogs will agree to review an author’s work and dedicate a post to said review.
AToMR has a tremendous network of bloggers being one of the first promotional groups of this kind founded in early 2011.
In order to schedule a tour, AToMR would like at least a three months notice. However, if space is available, we will try to work with you time wise. Once we close a tour sign-up, we will contact you with a working tour schedule. If you are providing the review copies, we will send along a review copy list or we can handle sending digital review copies for you. If you are doing a combo package including a Release or Buzz Event (see Release and Buzz Event information below), we will send the guest post topics, interview questions, etc. for your completion and a due date by which they must be completed.
All tours include:
Access to our large network of bloggers for tour sign-ups
Coordination with blogs for sign-up and posting, along with follow up
Dedicated tour page on our site
Updated links to direct tour posts daily
AToMR can handle the giveaway details between bloggers and winners.
AToMR provides all guest post topics created by author with directions and samples (when applicable).
AToMR will handle distributing digital review copies if preferred. Any print review copies or gifted digital copies are the responsibility of the author or publisher to distribute.
We try to make the blog tour process as painless and least time consuming for you as possible. AToMR also offers tour packages that combines a blog tour with a promotional event to generate extended awareness of the author’s work. Request pricing menu for details.
Need help soliciting reviews for your book? We can help! AToMR will offer participants the opportunity to review your title outside of a blog tour. (This is not an organized promotional tour. Reviews will be honest by the reviewer. Positive reviews are not guaranteed nor the number of participants).
