Reveries Blog Tours

Reveries Designs

Want to have a blog tour for the release of your new novel? To launch your new blog? Well, I’m here to help!

I host blog tours on Reveries (kellynroth.blog). I would also be sharing these posts on my social media. (See details in the Package section.)

I also offer consulting for $25 an hour (video chat/hangout) or $10 per email.

What is a blog tour?

When releasing a new novel, many authors choose to host a ‘blog tour.’ This is the online version of a book tour. In a blog tour, different bloggers post on scheduled days about your book. They may post reviews, interviews, or simply a book spotlight. Oftentimes blog tours have an accompanying giveaway.

A new blogger may also choose to launch their new blog/website with a tour. These are generally shorter and may have fewer participants, but they are still a great way to generate readers for your brand-new website.

Why is a blog tour a good idea?

Blog tours help give your book the proper send-off into the great wide world of readers. It’s a great way to get exposure when your book is fresh of the presses, per se. Also, it allows you to reach other through bloggers – who are some of the most passionate book-promoters out there!

For a blog launch tour, it’s a great way to generate an audience quickly as well as raise a buzz about your new website.

How long is a blog tour?

It can be as short as two days or as long as a month. It’s up to you. I would suggest somewhere from four days to a week. The length of the novel can also determine the length of the tour!

For blog launch tours, I’d suggest just a few days, perhaps four or five at the very most. (See Blog Launch Packages.)

What makes you qualified to help?

I’ve organized three book launch tours of my own and several for others as well as consulting for five and answering random questions for maybe half a dozen more. For blog launches, I’ve hosted one of my own.

I’ve observed maybe a hundred blog tours of various types over the years and taken part in dozens (as a blogger). I’ve seen what works. I don’t call myself an expert, but I promise to do everything I can to get your novel out there and make your blog tour a success.

Book Launch Examples

I helped Hanna Kraft host a brief blog tour to get her book, The New Diary, out there. You can find the kickoff post here. This tour would be along the lines of a small Elliot (see packages).

I hosted a blog tour for  the release of my novella, The Lady of the Vineyard. It was five days long (see day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4, and day 5), and let me tell you, it was fun! This tour would be along the lines of an extended Elliot (see packages).

In summer 2017, I hosted a ten-day blog tour for the release of two of my novels, The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective (first post and final post). This tour would be along the lines of a Brontë (see packages).
