Review Tour

Review Tour

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

A Review Tour is similar to a blog tour, but hosts sign up to post their review on their tour date. These tours can be either 3 or 5 days in length, and include unlimited hosts.

Enough lead time must be given to 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 Review Tour.

Note: BPICP understands how important reviews are to authors and will do our best to remind all those who have signed up for the Review Tour to post their reviews on their designated date. BPICP cannot guarantee that every participant will read and review the book and cannot be held responsible if hosts do not fulfill their commitment, but we will do all we can to encourage and remind the hosts to fulfill their obligation. Those hosts not fulfilling their commitment will be restricted from taking any further ARCs offered by BPICP.
