When I published my second book, I knew I needed help with marketing and promotions so that I could reach a wider readership and meet new bloggers and friends. Over the last few months, I’ve seen some of the fantastic books promoted on the Reads & Reels (R&R) Book Tours platform and felt excited at how well received and supported they’ve been. I am thrilled R&R was interested in helping with Father Figure and couldn’t be more grateful for the very reasonably-priced, custom package the team created with a Book Blitz and a Blog Tour to support the launch. Although we’ve only completed one part so far, and the other is scheduled for early next month, I can already see the extended reach this marvelous team has provided. I wanted to share my appreciation and let everyone else know about them!
I worked directly with Shannon (cute likeness above, right?!?!), who runs her own blog (Reads & Reels) in addition to the R&R Book Tours platform; she was instrumental in my novel’s initial launch period’s success, and I am quite grateful — especially for the central banner her team created for Father Figure. It had the perfect air of mystery, dreamlike lure, and sharp graphics. For most of last week, everywhere I turned, I saw promotions for my book between social media, the R&R blog and website, and tons of other readers’ sites and platforms. It truly was a blitz! Their attention to detail, advice, efficiency and love of books clearly shines through… and knowing the week just happened to be at the same time as Shannon’s wedding, honeymoon and re-location, it’s astonishing how well-coordinated everything was! Kudos to Reads & Reels for creating such an amazing opportunity for authors to partner with for advertising their upcoming books, finding interested reviewers, and generating new leads and readers.
FIVE STARS to R&R Book Tours for providing amazing support, great value, quick turn-around times, and brilliant ideas. Thank you for everything on last week’s Book Blitz. I can’t wait to see the Blog Tour next month… but until then, read on to hear more about them…
There are two fantastic ways that you can be part of the R&R platform: (a) author and (b) reader. If you have your own books you want to promote, I encourage you to reach out to R&R to discuss options, costs, and schedules. Or, if you’re an avid reader who wants to get more involved in the book blogging and reviewing world, join their newsletter and follow their site to see all the upcoming tours. You might just get a free book and access to talk directly to an author you’ve been following. See all the important links below.
