Themed Tours
(Prism Book Tours' specialty)
2 weeks - $125
1 week - $85

All THEMED TOURS include: Tour Banner, Tour Launch, Tour Stops (includes reviews, guest posts, interviews, and excerpts), Tour-wide Giveaway and a Grand Finale Blitz. Tour stops are limited to four per day of the tour. Tour stop days are Mondays through Fridays with the Grand Finale Blitz on Saturdays.

Some examples: Scavenger Hunt, Daily Giveaways, Related Highlighted Themes, Inter-Linking Guest Posts, and more. (Check out past tours by clicking on the banners in our sidebar. They link to past Grand Finales!)
We customize the content of each tour by working with the author. The more reviewers wanted on the tour, the earlier it needs to be announced for readers to plan their schedules. Most themed tours need to be planned 2 months in advance for these reasons!

$30/Day Prism Tour
(Prism Book Tours' specialty)
3 Day Minimum, 12 day Maximum. 1 Author/Book per Day.

Each author gets ONE day on the tour, so the days it runs depends on the number of authors participating. Authors should gather authors who write in a similar genre to join the tour with them. The tour is "full" when we have at least three participants. We then set the dates for the tour based on your schedule and preference.

Each author participant pitches in to a joint giveaway. We enlist one blog of 1,000+ followers to post each day/post and end with a GRAND FINALE BLITZ - a summary post including your book, author & post info shared with our network. We guarantee at least 10 bloggers will post the Grand Finale Blitz with us - you can follow the bloggers who post by watching the Rafflecopter grow with their follow links.

Each participating author contributes:
    - $30
    - $5 - $20 towards an Amazon gift card or PayPal cash for the joint giveaway
    - A book and/or swag toward the joint giveaway
    - Content for one post

$50 Review Requests

We have a review list (generally not bloggers) who are interested in reviewing childrens, middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction titles. Those who are interested sign up to review, receiving a review copy (ebook or print) in exchange for posting an honest review to Goodreads and retail sites.

Reviewers are generally given 60 days to review and are asked to leave links to their posted online review(s) in a Google form. We follow up with reviewers if we haven’t received their review link(s) and also send reminders.

Print copies garner the most requests, but ebook copies are generally used. Review requests typically garner from 8 to 20 requests. We cannot guarantee they will review the book or the number of requests we will receive. We do not require they finish a book if it’s something they don’t like, as any other review. We can also not require a review be posted on Amazon specifically due to Amazon’s policy, but we do imply that they post to retail sites.
 
SOCIAL MEDIA EVENTS

You can gain some great exposure running an online event as most readers/followers interact via social media. We tailor each event to the author's or publisher's needs. If you don't see something below that works for you, email us and we'll customize an event.

$20 Basic Facebook Party
(Per hour and up to four authors, additional $5 per additional author)

This is an online event that we would set up on a Facebook Event page, but the author(s) would run (all posting would be by the author(s) or publisher). Includes banner and four graphics (be it short excerpts from the book, giveaway packages, a series image, setting, or dream cast for the characters, etc.). Giveaways are provided by the author or publisher, but there should be at least one to four per party. Author(s) or publisher also draws the giveaway winners and awards prizes.

$10 Social Media Blasts

Social Media Blasts are an easy way for both authors and bloggers to promote a book or series, especially for release day or when a book is on sale. The main platforms we use are Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We corroborate with the author/publisher to come up with specific tweets and Facebook/Instagram posts that include links and hashtags for bloggers to share on a specific day or during a specific time frame. These are then emailed out to our bloggers to share. No giveaway involved.

"You could look the whole world over and not find a tour hostess as enthusiastic as Laura. She brings a vibrancy and vim into her book tours that is unparalleled! I was blown away by the fun of this whole process . . . and by the care that went into constructing a truly unique tour. Laura used her broad networking to bring together a variety of bloggers to feature my newest release, but she also tied together the tour as a whole by organizing related guest posts to lead readers from one blog to another. This was a stroke of brilliance! If you are looking for a tour to bring attention to your latest novel, you will not regret signing up with Prism Book tours. It's like a party on your computer!

She helped me stay organized by reminding me when dates were coming up and all of her hosts were amazing at getting the word around as well! Laura's enthusiasm bled over into my confidence as an author and that is something no amount of money or "blog time" can buy! Prism Book Tours's services is worth every penny I spent and I will be returning to Laura for my sequel, Gemini in Retrograde, when it is published." — Jessica O'Gorek, author of Gemini Rising: Ethereal Fury

  1. It appears that you only feature fantasy, romance, and sci fi. Do you plan to expand into other genres in the future? Literary? General fiction?
