Give Your Book the Publicity It Deserves

One of the best ways to promote your book online is through bloggers. Many authors have realized this and have taken advantage of reviews and publicities that the blogging world can offer.

In fact, Tim Ferriss, author of The 4 Hour Work Week claims that it was publicity from other bloggers that kept the book on the New York Times Best Seller list for over 4 years and helped it to sell over 1.350,000 copies. He didn’t do traditional book tours at all.

And who can blame him? Book store signings for new authors attract very few people. Even best selling authors struggle to attract an abundance of readers. So why go to the trouble and expense of a traditional book tour when you can use the help of bloggers to reach thousands of buyers for your book?

Tip
Tours need to be booked at least 4 weeks in advance and will include a minimum of tour stops depending on the chosen tour. The author/publisher agrees to ship copies of their book and requested Guest Posts to the bloggers hosting tour stops, to arrive at least 3 weeks prior to their tour dates.

Authors on tour will be featured at www.paranormalcravings.com and connected Social Media for time till and during the tour. Each individual tour stop will feature a photo of the book, (if chosen)a review, links to the author’s website, blog, and purchasing information.

Our experience is that authors who interact with tour hosts and make themselves available for guest posting, interviews, question and answer sessions with blog commenters, and who respond to comments will have the greatest success from their tour!

How We Can Help You to Get Bloggers to Write About Your Book

Most authors don’t have connections with hundreds of bloggers who are willing to promote their book. That is where Paranormal Cravings come in. We realize how valuable bloggers are when it comes to book publicity, so we created Online Book Tours.

We have a team of over 900 Book Tour Hosts who already have a great internet presence and huge followings. And if you opt to promote your book through one of our Online Book Tours, the team will publicize it for you in many ways on their blogs including:

  • Author Interviews
  • Reviews
  • Promotional Blog Posts
  • Author Guest Posts
  • Social Media Shout Outs

An Online Book Tour is an effective and affordable way of getting the word out about your book. And our tours are affordable and simple to arrange. We take care of everything for you, including blog tour banners, marketing advice and scheduling the tours with our team of bloggers.

Here is in short the routine we do for scheduling the tours

  1. Send the author a confirmation of the tour request (We send you a WORD-DOC to fill out with all info)
  2. We confirm you the actual TOUR period/date
  3. Progress your returned WORD-DOC. (In this stage we like to have received from you all info, images, giveaway info and review copies)
  4. We set up the Tour page on Paranormal Cravings where Blog Hosts can sign up for your tour or find info. This is also the place where you find your up-to-date tour schedule and changes.
  5. Send out the newsletter to all our 600+ Blog Hosts with your tour info, links, about, cover and Sign – up Button.
  6. We receive the replies from the Blog Hosts
  7. We email the Author a DRAFT Tour Schedule, and make changes if necessary.
    <–Point of no return–>
  8. We have a GO at this point from the Author to send out confirmations together with the review copies that we have received from you/ or we send you a list with contacts so the author, publisher or third like Netgalley or Edelweiss can send out the review copies/download options.
  9. Send CONFIRMATION EMAIL to all participating bloggers: The final tour schedule with MEDIA KIT, review copies, excerpts, buy and contact links, about, blurb etc.
  10. We collect all interviews from the bloggers and specs from bloggers who opted for a Guest post and send them to the author.
  11. We send the author an LINK to the Online PROGRESS FILE of the tour: an update with the how’s and when’s- neat list of stops/dates and guest post that have to be written by author, interviews that have to be filled out etc. For a promo the author don’t have to do anything.
  12. ONE WEEK BEFOR THE TOUR STARTS: All guest posts and all interviews answers have to be send to the blog hosts by author
  13. Before the tour start we send out a reminder to all bloggers (In case they are missing something, the book they signed-up to review was dissapointing or mail was send to SPAM box) With no news bloggers at this point, we are ready for your tour and your tour is ready to START!
  14. We keep each other up-to date through the online tour file. (Direct links to the posts, missed stops, winners of the GA’s after the tour)
