Lone Star Book Blog Tours

A book blog tour enables an author to visit virtually with readers via interactive blogs, rather than at physical readings and book signings.
 
Readers are passionate about their books, and nowhere are they more passionate than in the blogosphere. Thousands of readers write, report, and promote as book bloggers, helping build buzz for the books they love in various genres and geographies.

 

But not all book bloggers — or blog tours — are created equal.

 

Random bloggers without specific interests in your market can't always deliver the targeted audience you’re looking for in a carefully timed campaign. And approaching individual bloggers can be time-consuming for a publicist or author, without any guarantee of success.

 

Lone Star Literary Life continues to comb the state to build a team of the best Texas-based book bloggers, representing a vetted cross-section of interests. Lone Star Book Blog Tours offers publicists and authors a one-call, one-buy approach to marketing Texas books to Texas readers and industry influencers. We consider ours a boutique blog tour service offering a caliber of service and quality unlike any other tour companies.
