Book and Author Promotion

Due to health and other concerns-

We are only accepting a few review requests per month. 


Book Reviews:


 

This blog is first and foremost a review blog. I will never charge for a review as long as you don’t mind waiting, I will always try to fit you into the queue. There is currently a 12-20 week wait for reviews. I can review hard copy, PDF, Mobi, and Epub. I don’t purchase books for review, however if you need a verified review, I can use coupon codes. To request a review please send an email to speedofkid@gmail.com. I am also on Netgalley, though I will only read books that are sent via Kindle.

Reviews are re-posted to Amazon, Goodreads, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Riffle and other websites as appropriate.

When requesting a review please provide ( to Speedofkid@gmail.com ) the book in mobi / ebook / pdf formats.  Please give links to all retail sites where the book is listed and any book sites you would like highlighted like Goodreads or LibraryThing. Finally, please include links to author’s twitter and facebook and at least one author page. Any/All other social media accounts you would like to share would be appreciated. A twitter handle, an author photo/avatar and a bio are important for your promotion. Please be sure your pages and links are current.

Blog Tour Stops and Spotlights:


We are happy to be a stop on your blog tour. Though this is a “First Come” service, it is usually quite easy to fit them into the posting schedule. Generally posts of this nature are have existing HTML and graphics or offer a media kit with the information readily available to put a post together quickly. This is a good choice for Book Blasts, Blitzes and Reveals of all kinds, as well as Giveaways. We ask for at least two weeks notice

Interviews:


Readers enjoy hearing from and about their favorite authors. If you have a prepared Q and A or a video trailer that you would like to share, we would love to help you. This can be included in a tour stop/spotlight or run alone. We ask for at least 2 weeks advance notice

We also offer the Lian Asks: 5 Question interview. You can choose 5 or more questions from our list and answer them. It is also cross posted to Summer of Fun Blog. This is a popular choice and can have a waiting list of four weeks or more.

 

Holiday Showcases:

If your book is season specific and you would like to show it off, we offer various Holiday Specific Showcases for Winter Holidays, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Summer Fun, Back To School, Halloween and Thanksgiving. Contact this blog with your book information. These showcases are not genre specific and usually include a review, however it can be a Spotlight or Tour Stop. Space is very limited so please give as much advance notice as possible.
