Book Blitz/Blast or Sales/Promo Blitz

Book Blitz/Blast or Sales/Promo Blitz

Please contact thebookpartnersincrime@gmail.com for more information or to book a tour.

A Book Blitz/Blast or Sales/Promo Blitz is a great marketing tool that will help give your novel additional exposure in a market that is continues to grow. It can help to strengthen and build relationships with blogs, which help to promote your novel and give you an edge as an author. A Book/Blitz/Blast or Sales/Promo Blitz is normally done for books that have already been released and are looking for additional exposure. It can also be used to help promote a book in a series in anticipation of the next book being released. The Sales Blitz is a great tool to use in conjunction with putting your book on sale with a BookBub or other sales promotion.

Additionally, a review option can be included with the Book Blitz. With the Review option, an review copy is offered as an option to blogs who sign up for the Book Blitz. Those that sign-up for the review copy are asked to post their review in conjunction with their Book Blitz post or within the time specified by the author/client.

If you choose the Review Option with your Book Blitz, we encourage you to add enough lead time to give the hosts time to schedule your book to be read and reviewed. Many hosts have review commitments that extend out over months, so the more notice we provide for this option, the better the response will be for those hosts who will sign up to take the review copy. BPICP recommends at least six (6) weeks lead time for a successful Book Blitz with Review Option, but ideally, longer time-frames are encouraged.

Note: BPICP understands how important reviews are to authors and will do our best to remind all those who take review copies to post their reviews at the designated time. BPICP cannot guarantee that every participant will read and review the book and cannot be held responsible if hosts do not fulfill their commitment. Those hosts not fulfilling their commitment will be restricted from taking any further review copies offered by BPICP.
