Hello authors from here and far! Snyder here! I wanted to start a blog tour service for authors since I get such a kick out of helping authors get the word out about their books!
Prices and packages are listed below! So if you would like to book a tour for a book blitz, cover reveal, or review tour, let me know! Also, in order to get bloggers interested in both your book tour and my tour service, I will have a few events planned in the future. We have to get the word out somehow! Thank you for stopping by! If you wish to contact me, use the email address listed below or the forms provided.
Since I am promoting these tours and my hosts have certain preferences and tastes that may not align with a certain book, I reserve the right to pick and choose. However, rest at ease. They love a variety of genres. Please do not be disheartened if I opt out of promoting your book.
Please schedule all tours at least 2 months in advance.
Blitz, cover reveals, and smaller events can be scheduled as soon as a month or 2 weeks in advance.
You will get more reaction and views if you offer a giveaway with your blitz, reveal, promo and tours. So yes, giveaways are highly encouraged: you can have a tour- wide giveaway, where the blogs on the tour share a rafflecopter. Or you can have giveaways at the individual tour stops. It is up to you, the author.
You are providing the review copies of your books to the bloggers for the tours, whether they be print or ecopies of the books. It is easier for me to distribute the ebooks to the reviewers than it is to act as a go- between each time someone signs up. So, unless you prefer otherwise, You will send this info to me and I will forward it to the hosts. They will be distributed to the bloggers in advance of the tour dates, along with the post and giveaway info.
I will make the tour banners and buttons, as well as any other promotional paraphernalia involved in the tour, as well as coordinate the giveaways. That is, unless you would prefer to handle these details yourself.
The packages seen below are not set in stone. We can custom make your tour, just let me know what you would like.
*All packages include a basic tour banner, Facebook banner for promoting tour, promo image to promote book, promo image to promote the tour and the organization of the rafflecopter, the sending of information to tour participants [ebooks, covers, blurb, info, etc.], as well as promotion on both the blog tour page, blog tour Facebook page, twitter, book review blog, and review blog Facebook page. If reviews are included in tour, I will also make review snippits from stops on the tour.

- Graphics- $5 each. If you would just like promo images, sidebar images, review snippits, banners, or Facebook banners made, then message me via the sidebar box. Just let me know what you want. They can be author images promoting a series or promoting an event. If you want more than one image made, then a group price can be determined.
Again, we can talk over prices and customize the tour and price to fit your needs. Tours can be purchased in groupings at smaller prices. Also, if you book with us once and decide to use us again, I don't see why we can't offer you a returning customer discount as well. I am just happy to be working with you. $5 off the package of your choice. (:
