Authors and Publishers

We specialize in virtual book tours, social media services, and work with authors and publishers on custom campaigns. 

Do you need book reviews? Our virtual book tours cover most genres. Our reviewers are global, and have a ton of fun creating high-quality review posts on blogs, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and on Amazon and Goodreads, as well. 

Do you need more followers? We can work from your Twitter, TikTok or Instagram account to build your following and find reviewers for your works. We do not use auto services or bots. We find the right people to follow so that you get the right people following you back. We send every review invite personally, and clean out unfollowers. And we make sure your information and accounts are kept secure and private. 

Do you need written or podcast interviews? We can arrange Q&As with bloggers or podcasters we know, or pitch a list you provide. 

Do you need advice on running paid ads or a marketing campaign that fits your budget? We offer free voice or video call consulting. 

We like to be a part of the buzz. So we work every day. We love to see old and new books buzz. We love to see the happy buzzing responses from authors. And we certainly love the buzzing creativity reviewers put into their posts; they are the heart of this business. 

4 day tour, 12 reviews, $125 USD

Deep, dark, powerful and moving. Formerly Blackthorn Book Tours, our dark fiction tours are in high demand, with a rich history of years of high-quality tours.

The book tour includes an animated banner created from the cover of your book; a webpage for your book on our website; a media kit for the reviewers; graphics with an excerpt of each review, which we post on our Twitter, Instagram and TikTok.

Note: Animations are created with professional software. Because they are very time consuming, they are offered as a courtesy from our in-house artist for every book tour. Requested corrections to the banner and graphics can be made, no problem. But not to the animations. So far, we never had less than 12 reviews published for a 4-day tour; but, just in case, we have a money-back policy (Fewer than 3 reviewers signed up – 90% refund of fee received; fewer than 50% of agreed reviewers signed up – 75% refund of fee received; fewer than 75% of agreed reviewers signed up – 50% refund of fee received; 75% or more of the agreed reviewers signed up – no refund of fee received.)

BookTok Tours and Bookstagram Tours

Reviewers are killing it with their videos in the #BookTok community, and Bookstagrammers create the most beautiful review posts. They do their best, are the most artful, when they have a paperback to work with — and get something in their tip jar for all their efforts.

We can do these on short notice. Book a tour today and we can arrange it with reviewers on TikTok or Instagram — your choice — within 5–8 weeks. For a 10 review tour we need a couple weeks to fill the slots, and you’ll need a couple weeks for shipping. More for 20 reviews.

Note: Keep in mind that reviewers are serious readers with serious piles of books to read. They need enough time to receive your book and read it. So while we have great results arranging these quick, we have the best results booking 2+ months ahead.

Best deal: $300 USD + the cost of shipping 20 paperbacks. You’ll get 20 high quality BookTok video reviews, or, if you prefer Instagram, 20 gorgeous Bookstagram review posts. Reviewers receive $10 USD from us and a paperback from you.

Just need 10? $200 USD + the cost of shipping 10 paperbacks for 10 high quality BookTok or Bookstagram reviews. Reviewers receive $10 USD from us and a paperback from you.

Our flagship book tours at Black Tide, Black Phoenix, Blackberry and Black Coffee include reviewers that post on all platforms, so they are in high demand. Interested authors and publishers have to grab slots now for tour dates available next year; contact us to find out the first available date. We animate the cover, prepare a media kit and webpage for every book, and dedicate many hours managing each tour by posting all the reviews with graphics on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook and Twitter. Because these are ebook tours, the cost is low.

If waiting for our traditional tour slots doesn’t fit your PR plan, get in touch to discuss a tour on TikTok or Instagram. To get started you just choose the platform you want, TikTok or Bookstagram, and the countries you will be able to send paperbacks to (United States, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, Canada). Book it! We’ll get right to work communicating with reviewers and will send you a list of shipping addresses; the author/publisher is responsible for the cost and shipping of paperbacks.

Note: We do our best and our reviewers are super dedicated, but things happen. So if a reviewer doesn’t post, we will refund $10 USD for each review not posted; reviewers will not be paid unless they post. Since we start to work right away, it’s not possible to refund or cancel BookTok or Bookstagram tours. But we can reschedule the tour if you need it.
