JustRead 5th Birthday Buzz Blitz


Welcome to the Buzz Blitz celebrating 5 years of buzzing about books with JustRead Publicity Tours!



🐝 ~ 5 book bee perks:

Blog tours, bookstagram tours, reviewer tours, etc. are different varieties of book campaigns. Readers who participate in JustRead campaigns are called hosts or book bees.

5 book bee perks JustRead Tours Various hosting options 
Readers buzz about books in a variety of ways through blog posts (spotlights, reviews, interviews, guest posts), social media posts (bookstagram, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter), and posted reviews (Goodreads, Bookbub, and retail sites). 

🐝 ~ Reader community:

Although reading is usually a solitary pursuit, enjoy a richer experience with community! Get to know fellow readers through comments, posts, and book recommendations. 

🐝 ~ Author interaction:

Want to personally thank authors for writing books that you love to read? Authors often visit campaign posts to say hello, express gratitude, and answer questions. 

🐝 ~ Exclusive giveaways:

Book bees are eligible for exclusive giveaways through the host newsletter and the monthly host giveaway in addition to tour-wide and occasional host exclusive campaign giveaways. 

🐝 ~ Access to sweet titles:

Last but not least, the honey of the book bee life is sweet reads! JustRead promotes titles within Christian, wholesome, or clean reads genres with content notes tailored to conservative values when sensitive issues are present. 

🐝 ~ June's Personal Thoughts:

Those of you who follow my blog know that I have posted dozens and dozens of blog posts and book reviews as a JustRead Publicity Tour blog host. 
What you may not know is that as an author, I have used this awesome company to promote 5 of my fiction books during the past 4 years! 
In early 2019, JustRead promoted my Christian historical romance, 'Handmade Hearts.' This short story was inspired by my aunt and uncle's real-life World War II romance in New Orleans. This event was the first time that I hired someone else to organize my blog blitz. Prior to that, I organized my own tours for my first two books, 'A Holiday Miracle in Apple Blossom' and 'Robin's Reward.' I actually enjoyed my blog blitz because JustRead was monitoring and following through on getting things done on my behalf!

In late Spring, 2019, JustRead organized the blog and reviewer tour for my debut children's novel, 'RES-Q Tyler Stop.' What a wonderful job the company did of creating appealing graphics, monitoring the commitments that reviewers and bloggers had made to get the word out about my book, as well as promoting the book release on their own social media channels.

In January of this year, I approached JustRead about promoting my 'Bonita Creek Series.' Instead of a single book, this campaign included the first three books of my Christian romance series--'Robin's Reward,' 'Jorie's Journey,' and the recently-released 'Christmas in Bonita Creek.' Because there were three books included in the tour, JustRead made three times as many graphics and organized three times as many book spotlights and excerpts. I was very pleased with the results and the buzz this tour created for my series.

A word about my 'sister' blog hosts--The individuals who sign up to post for JustRead are volunteering their time and talents to share the word about Christian and clean, wholesome fiction and non-fiction because they are committed to introducing their followers to these genres and the authors who write them. They deserve a huge nod of gratitude for their selfless efforts. As an author, I want to thank all of these bloggers for their efforts in my behalf.

My final words about JustRead Publicity Tours are about their business model and professionalism. This company is completely transparent in their pricing, rules for authors and bloggers, expectations, and standards. For each of my tours I have received a contract tailored to my particular event, an invoice for the cost, a receipt for my payment, and a final report filled with analytics about how many bloggers posted, the number of estimated readers reached based on each blogger's page view history, and other statistics that an indie author/businesswoman such as I am interested in knowing.
🎂🎈🎉 Congratulations to JustRead Publicity Tours on your 5th Birthday! I wish you many more years of sharing your mission with the world . . . 🎂🎈🎉
