What is a Book Tour?
Tour is defined as a journey in which several different places are visited to showcase or promote something. which is basically what a book tour is all about, only it’s online and can be hosted on various platforms (Social Media & Blogs) and formats.
The tour participants of interest here are passionate readers with literary platforms, who not only read books but also review, discuss, engage with and talk about them with other readers.
Book tours occur in a specific timeframe where the book in question is promoted across the selected platforms that meet the criteria and target audience for the books.
Book Tours typically start right before a book is launched and ends a bit after it has been published.
How Does it Work?
The NBB Book Tours is a service, which aim is to assist with creating awareness and promotion around, during and right after the launch of a book, published mostly by independent authors and small presses.
I pitch your book to a series of online readers who are the best fit for your story and after they’ve signed on, I work with these readers to schedule your virtual appearances on their platforms.
All posts will include information about the book and its author, and can also feature Q&A’s (answered by the author), guest posts (written by the author), excerpts, book reviews (from the readers) etc.
