Roxanne Rhoads owns a virtual book touring company called Bewitching Book Tours. I have been one of her hosts since the beginning of The Indigo Quill, and I can say in full honesty that it's one of my favorite tours to be a part of. I have seen both effective and ineffective companies, and BBT has proven to be one of the more successful. I am excited to introduce a title from Rhoads herself that will guide authors to meeting faithful followers and potentially aid book sales.
In this quick and comprehensive collection of tips, Rhoads lays down the foundation to boost your publicity actively and passively. In this treasure trove of information, you will find advice on getting a website going, utilizing social media, and creating a professional presence to help your advances. She also covers what kind of expectations you should and shouldn't have (be sure to read the fine print of your touring company) and how to create content that you can re-use in the future such as guest blogs and character profiles.
It is so important in this progressive age for authors to actively get their work noticed. Even though I've been a host for years, there was information in this guide that I hadn't even thought of. Rhoads does a fabulous job of using her own experience paired with observation to create the perfect compilation for aspiring authors everywhere.
I don't want to give away all the gems you will find in this book, but as a librarian, tour host, and reviewer, I can tell you with confidence that this is a good resource to have at your fingertips if you are self-promoting. Secrets of Successful Book Tours is well organized and a quick and easy read. It makes the perfect reference guide for both new and seasoned authors alike. I would highly recommend it!
This guide is also good for blog tour hosts. It contains information about the importance of a book tour. An author depends on reliable hosts to feature their work. Have you ever wondered why an author or promotions company is upset or irritated when you miss your posting date, don't feature the content provided, or skip out on your book review? We all must work as a team in order to make an author's book tour a success.
Roxanne does a magnificent job describing the process of a book tour. She also discusses specific social media to utilize and how to write original content for bloggers so that not all posts are identical. Readers don't want to read the same material over and over again during a 1 week or 2 week tour. She also discusses how to schedule a tour and how to choose between doing a tour yourself, or hiring a well established promotions company to help you out.
Highly recommended for authors and bloggers, alike!
Review copy provided to me by the author, at no cost, in exchange for an honest review.
Roxanne Rhoads is the guru behind Bewitching Book Tours, the first book tour company I ever signed up with. If you're interested in a well-organized blog tour, be sure to check out Bewitching Book Tours. As Roxanne states, "Publication is only the beginning of the process ... promotion is the road to success."
An excellent quick guide for all authors.
I received this book in return for an honest review.
