Whether you’re an author or a publisher, you want to get your published works into the hands of readers. Our goal here at JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC is to buzz about books through blog, review, and social media tours.
We have a wide variety of campaigns available, ranging from conventional tours to focused exposure on social media platforms. With creativity and dedication, JustRead will work with you to help increase your book’s exposure and increase your readership. We also promote bookish events and we’re happy to provide custom quotes if you don’t find what you’re looking for within our services.
If you’re interested in organizing a promotional campaign, please review our services and complete our campaign inquiry form.
JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (aka JustRead) provides fully organized campaign sign-ups, marketing, host selection, giveaway entries/winner selection where applicable, and follow-up with each host’s stop. A launch post will be published on JustRead’s website or on our social media platforms.
Clients, please be prepared to provide:
- Book information: high-resolution cover image, synopsis, publisher, release date, genre, author bio, author image
- Special content: excerpts, guest posts, interview responses…etc.
- Review or promotional copies (ebook/print)
- Giveaway prizes (We are happy to brainstorm with you if you need ideas.)
Note: While we always encourage our hosts to review books received, certain campaigns do not include the hosts’ commitment to review the book by a certain date or our collection of direct review links. Those tours are marked as “no review collection” below. Hosts may or may not choose to share reviews on those tours.
Multi-book/author campaign bundles are available for publishers and independently published authors requesting six or more titles/campaigns in a single calendar year. Please contact us via email: justreadtours[AT]gmail[DOT]com for more information.
Reviewer Tours are open to all readers and do not involve any blog or social media stops. Readers simply review the book and share their review on Goodreads/BookBub and at least one retail site.
Blind Tours are essentially a “blind date with a book.” We match an author’s backlist title with interested readers. Readers who have completed our Blind Book Compatibility Form are eligible and agree to review the book on Goodreads/Bookbub and at least one retail site.
