Hello there. Just curious if anyone could help me about becoming a book tour host? I've only been blogging for a month, but am a dedicated blogger. I review mostly young adult and paranormal young adult novels. Any sites that I should look at to help me with this situation?
Thanks a bunch,
Hey there, Felicia!
I have a website where I organise virtual book tours: Enchanted Book Tours
If you're interested in becoming a tour host, just fill in the form on the website! You're welcome to join, even if your blog is only a month old. I'm looking forward to having you on the team!
This is going to sound newbish. But what does ARC's mean? I am new to the who book review thing. I am actually trying to set up a blog JUST for book reviews, but I can't really think of a good name =(
All you have to do is find other people who blog and get them to join with you. You can create a badge so that others can attach it to their blog, and let your followers know about it. Offer book giveaways, contests, author interviews, etc., and that will get people to check out your list of blogs.
I would contact the book tour sites: Bewitching Book Tours, Pump Up Your Novel, Goddess Fish Tours, and say you'd like to be a tour host.
I'm looking for someone to host me for my blog tour in August for my science fiction romance, Paradise 21. Please email me if you're interested! aubriedionne at yahoo dot com.
Thanks and good luck!
I am a Virtual Book Tour Coordinator for Pump Up Your Book - please feel free to direct message me at tgleichner(at)live(dot)com and I can add you to my list of tour hosts. Good luck!
The question you asked about how to become a tour host is one that I have been thinking about recently too! Thanks everyone for the info. I have only been blogging for a couple of months, do you think tour organisers will mind?
- Also I had no idea what ARC meant either so thanks for the heads up! :D
I didn't even know I was accepted until they sent me an e-mail wanting me to host an author. So, the best idea is probably just wait. If you still haven't heard from them, maybe you could contact them. The person that contacts me is Roxanne Rhodes.
