Review Tour for THE PROTECTORS

I posted I would describe the ‘Review Tour’ when it happened. It’s another package I’m trying from Book Trailers Showcase. Once you pay for the tour, the reviewers read your novel and then host a review of it on their blogs. They are not being paid for the review except for ad stuff on BTS. So far, I don’t see much of a difference between giving a review copy to a reviewer, and doing the ‘Review Tour’. The money doesn’t guarantee you a good review. If the participants hate your book, you get a bad review. The money goes to BTS for organizing the tour and marketing. I’m sure this isn’t for everyone, but joining ‘writer circle jerks’ where a group of authors annoy each other with their novels just doesn’t jibe with me. I don’t want to pester the hell out of friends and family in pursuit of name recognition with people who already know me. I figure to keep pushing the marketing this year by feeding whatever I make from my novels into more ads, and more new releases.

Anyway, here’s a link to the first stop and announcement on my ‘Review Tour’ for THE PROTECTORS: So Many Books, So Little Time. I will let everyone know if this helps in the name recognition and marketing front.  :)

Begins on November 13th
