You have already known Escape With Dollycas was a place for reviews, recommendations and giveaways. You know cozy mysteries are my absolute favorite genre to read. So when I was recently contacted by Bella over at Cozy Mystery Book Tours and she told me she has decided to stop offering tours due to some heath issues and wanted me to fill in during her absence I was more than happy to say YES!
Great Escapes Book Tours was started by me last year and I look forward to using it to help Bella out. Her tour concept is different than mine but I want to offer what her customers are used to – Free Book Tours. This is to (using her words) “spread the word far and wide about Cozy Mysteries”. So that’s exactly what I intend to do.
Bella uses site sponsors so that she can offer Free Book Tours. Using her approach I have decided to add more advertising to Escape With Dollycas in the form of Site Sponsorship. I have added a new sidebar to my blog just for this reason. Great Escapes Book Tours banners and Sponsors advertising will be in the far left sidebar.
I will also highlight your book/ad on social media at least:
2 times per month on the Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book Facebook Fan Page
2 times per month on the NEW Great Escapes Book Tours Facebook Fan Page
4 times per month on the Dollycas Twitter Account
Site Sponsorship is open to Authors, Publicists, Publishers, Bookstores and Bloggers.
Sponsorship starts at just $30 per month with discounts for sponsoring more than one month.
Free Book Tours
A virtual book tour will help spread the word about your cozy mystery book, stopping at 7-14 blogs, with reviews, interviews and guest posts. It’s the perfect way to spread the word to readers in this technological age, without travelling!
All you need to do is provide review copies and your time to answer interview questions or write a few guest posts.
All tours include:
- Events featured on Facebook and Goodreads with daily updates on Facebook and Twitter featuring the blog hosting that day.
- Its own page under the Great Escapes Virtual Tour tab at the top of this page and be listed on the Current Tour Page. Future Tours will have a page as well as I book hosts. After the tour is completed the links will move to the Past Tour Page.
- Review bloggers will be asked to post their reviews on Amazon.com and/or B & N. com in addition to posting on their blog.
- If you want to include a giveaway that is entirely up to you.
