As a fellow book lover, we are delighted to have you onboard. And we hope that you will enjoy promoting these exciting books as much as we do.
But it is not just our talented authors that reap the rewards of our tours. As a blogger you will benefit in many ways including:
- Shout outs on social media sites
- Mentions on our blog
- Joining a team of bloggers who share your passions.
- Increased blog readership as a result of being part of the team
- The opportunity to read great books for free
- Free giveaways to encourage new blog readers
So as you can see, Paranormal Cravings Tours rewards everyone involved. Authors receive more exposure for their books, and as a blogger you will attract more readers and page views.
About Your Blog Posts
When we schedule a tour, we will send you an invite to join. Your blog post choices include reviews, interviews, guest posts and tour promos. Once you receive your invite simply let us know what type of post you would like to write, and give us your preferred publication dates.
Our tours are designed to offer our author’s the best positive publicity. If you are not used to reviewing books, check out reviews on sites like Amazon to get an idea on what to include in a useful and entertaining review.
We do our best to choose top quality books. But we understand that you may not enjoy every single book you review. When this happens, all we ask is that you avoid posting a negative review. Instead you could just post a promo which includes the information included in the media kit. This includes the basic book info, author photo, bio, and purchase info.
Also please understand that some of the books you receive are not final edited copies. Many are ARCs (pdf, epub, or mobi). So the grammar, spelling and formatting may not be up to publishable standard. We hope you understand this and judge each book on the fantastic writing, rather than be critical of basic errors.
If you would like to feature an author guest post on your blog, the writer may already have a topic in mind that they would like to cover. But if you have a particular idea of your own, suggestions are always welcome.
When you post the completed guest post on your blog, please remember to include the contents of the Media Kit too.
We offer giveaways to help you promote your blog post or review. This is a great way to attract followers on social networking sites, and reward regular readers of your blog. You are in control of the time length of giveaways, but around 3-7 days is a good time limit.
Once you have chosen a winner, simply send their name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also include a link to your blog post. For a printed giveaway, add the winner’s mailing address too. We will then forward the winner’s details to the author, so they can contact them and give them their prize. Remember to announce the name of the winner on your website too.
Author and Character Interviews
Another great way to participate in the Paranormal Cravings Tour is through author and character interviews. These interviews are generally done via email questions and answers. So once your post is scheduled, please send us your questions as soon as possible to give the author time to respond. We will then email you the author’s replies as soon as we receive them.
Please remember to include the materials in the Media Kit with your interview, including the book cover, description, bio, author photo and links.
If you choose to feature a promo post on your blog, please use the information we send you in the Media Kit. This usually includes an excerpt from the book, an author photo and bio, book cover and links. We often include optional extras in the Media Kit and it’s up to you whether you choose to use them.
