I have just a quick announcement post.
We have been approached by several authors to book tours and I would like to get a feel for who likes what type of reads. We have many more tours in the works but I will not reveal them until we have solid dates for you to consider.
Please take a look at:
Jennifer Lyon -FORBIDDEN MAGIC One Day Blitz on April 18th so keep that date open for posting.
Danielle Blanchard Benson - Better Off Dead: Book II (The Vamp Saga). Her Vamp saga Death Wish Book I is available on Amazon and is described as...... Welcome to Las Vegas in the year 2020.
The cold war between mortals and vampires has ended ... the vampires won and now they control the most powerful organizations in the world which include the Global Six, the pharmaceutical industry, the gaming industry and banking.
Manon Mourey is a half-breed (too bad she doesn't know it) and one of the most powerful vamps in the world, Mikkel Damgaard, has eyes only for her. She holds the key to a dream most vampires have had since they were turned... yet her secret to changing the undead into Day Walkers could spark a war on the International Vampire Council... and soon ensnare the whole entire world.
This book is not YA friendly, contains a lot of profanity, a bit of snark, and has a few choice scenes of sex and death. It is not for the faint of heart.
Please comment below as to your interest in these tours. We will be sending out emails to each of you as well for scheduling dates and post type.

You are offered the tours that fit your genre and when a tour and date is available that fits your needs, you offer to host the book and author either through a book review, interview, or author guest blog.

A Blog tour is consistent online promotion of a book, utilizing blogs, placing ads on websites, holding online interviews.
This is one of the most effective ways to market your book. Statistics show that most readers need to hear about your book three different times before they think seriously about buying it. So how do you get the needed exposure for your book?
A blog tour is one of the most cost effective campaigns for authors and publishers.
A blog tour is a virtual book signing, a meet and greet with an established group of individuals within each bloggers site of followers as well as your readers and interested readers wanting more information. Rather than taking the time and cash to make a physical tour of bookstores, many writers now appear on blogs throughout the world.
Innovative Online Blog tours will design your personalized tour, contact the blog hosts, schedule the tour dates, organize the delivery of product to be reviewed, confirm the book was received by the blogger, send confirmations to each blog host, follow up on reviews posted to tour stops, and link each post to our company website and social media sites.
Innovative Online Blog tours will promote your blog tour through twitter, Facebook, our website, triberr, the Blog tour hosts online community, and you yourself, to your online community. When all of the promotion and exposure is combined you will be exposed to thousands of readers for pennies per opportunity. As readers visit the tour locations clickable “buy now” buttons of your book will be available at each host blog site for Amazon & Barnes and Noble. Also all bloggers posting a review will be strongly encouraged to post those reviews on the major book retailer sites as well.
So what is next?
Once you schedule your tour, I.O. Book Tours will begin organizing the tour (making Banners, Buttons, Etc. For your book tour)
The Tour opportunity will be announced to our host bloggers for scheduling dates and promotion options (book review, author interview, author guest post). You will be kept informed regarding when you are scheduled to do guest posts and interview questions will be sent from the blog host to I.O. Book tours and then forwarded to you.
So what is needed from you the author?
• Choose your package
• You Promote the tour dates and locations that we give you on your website, blog,twitter, facebook, etc.
• Attend your tour stops and interact as you choose.
