Want to generate a buzz about your book over a course of a week or more? Blog tours are the perfect vehicle for this! Traditionally, blog tours involve working with an organizer to share a complimentary copy of your book with bloggers interested to read it. A schedule is created and the bloggers post about the book on their set date! There are interviews, guest posts, and most importantly reviews!
Traditionally, blog tours are a paid service, varying in cost depending on organizer, number of blogs on the tour, and number of days the tour will run. Here at WriteHive, we believe in showcasing books from the writing community, and whenever possible, we do this free of charge.
Yes, you read that right - a free of charge blog tour! Before we go into the details on setting up a tour with us or how you can be on our Street Team, please read our review policy below.
Tours are honest review tours. Bloggers share their honest thoughts about the book, even if they don’t rate it well. Not everyone likes to post about books they didn’t like and that is why we give the option to post an excerpt, first impressions, or interview with the author instead of the review, if they wish to.
Want your book to be on tour? Keep an eye out on our Twitter account for announcements!
Every couple months, we will do a call out for books. Since these tours are free of charge, we only organize 3-4 a year.
Submit your book for consideration. A form will be available here and on Twitter and our Discord.
We will look through all applications and might take the help of our Street Team to choose the book on tour.
If your book is chosen, we will organize a tour free of charge for you. We cannot guarantee how many bloggers will be on the tour but we will help create a buzz for it. You will be working closely with our resident book blogger, Kriti. Take a look at the process here. A snapshot of the process is below:
Next callout will be in August for a November tour.
Would you like to be one of the hosts during the tour? Sign up to be on our #HiveReadsOnTour street team by filling out the form below or find it here. We will only ask for your information once and you will hear from us quarterly about an upcoming tour. If you decide to sign up, you will receive a complimentary copy of the book, opportunity to interview the author and host them for a guest post.
Anyone with a blog and interest to review a book is welcome on our Street Team.
