What to expect from En Pointe Author Services
Create a tour schedule for your event.
Blogger Sign Up and Sign Up Form:
Create a google doc sign up sheet for your event to make it easy for bloggers to sign up.
Add a sign up link on En Pointe Author Services website and I will share the link to the sign-up page on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest and my personal blog Teatime and Books.
Only bloggers who filled out the sign up form for your event or had contact with me directly can participate. If you know of people who want to be part of your event, feel free to share the sign up form with them.
Media Packet and Banner:
A media packet and special tour banner will be created and distributed to the bloggers.
Special Tour Page:
Create a special page on En Pointe Author Services just for your tour which includes information about the book, Goodreads link (if available), author bio, social media links and a link to the sign up form for your tour.
I will promote your tour on En Pointe Author Services website, Facebook and Twitter pages, but also my personal Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest and my blog Teatime and Books.
Other ways En Pointe Author Services will help:
Email bloggers of changes and Live Links
Send updates frequently regarding the progress of the tour.
Newsletter (Coming Soon)
Giveaways are optional. However, I recommend doing a giveaway because it leads to more views and exposure. You can do a tour-wide giveaway or a giveaway on each stop. You choose the prize you would like to giveaway, this is your tour!
En Pointe Author Services is not responsible for the giveaway, the author is responsible for buying the prizes and distributing the prizes to the winners.
If you choose to add a review to your tour/blitz, please send ARC’s or your published book atleast 6 weeks before your tour date, to allow bloggers the chance to read and review your book.
I will then send the ARC’s or published books to the bloggers
Formats accepted: mobi, epub and pdf.
I can’t guarantee that everyone will enjoy your book. If a blogger gives your book a 1 or 2 star rating, I will ask them to refrain from posting their review during the tour and send them a promo post instead or they have the option to drop out of the tour. They can post their review outside of the tour. Both positive and negative reviews will be posted as an honest review is being asked.
Are emailed to bloggers astleast 5 - 7 Days.
Tour materials include the following: Personal Tour Banner, Book Photo, Book Blurb/Synopsis, Excerpt, Buy Links, Author Photo, Author Bio, Author Social Media Links, any additional materials pertaining to your particular tour.
Reminder Emails for Bloggers:
A reminder email is sent out to all bloggers signed up for your tour 3 days prior to the start of the tour.
If a blogger misses their stop, an email is sent out to remind them to please post by the end of the day. If a blogger misses 3 stops and no communication, they will no longer be allowed to host for En Pointe Author Services.
En Pointe Author Services is not responsible for a tour host not posting on their date. We will do our best to find another host for any missed stops.
We cannot guarantee that a blogger posts a review, they are asked to post reviews on their blog and also additional review sites (i.e. Amazon, Goodreads etc).
En Pointe Author Services asks that the posts be up no later than 8AM (ET), which is when I will check on ALL the tour stops for that particular date! You will receive an email from me stating any delays or changes to the schedule, after the host has been contacted.
Book Your Tour in Advance:
Keep in mind that it works best to start planning your blog tour at least 4 weeks in advance. Usually the shorter the time frame to plan your tour, the less people will sign up. Cover reveals, sale blitzes, release and book blitzes can be done on short notice.
I would advice you to not book any tours or similar events at the same time by multiple tour organizers as that can reduce the effect of both events.
Invoices and Payment:
I accept payments through PayPal and personal check.
Invoices will be sent through paypal. Invoices will be sent 3 days prior to the start of the tour date. Please pay the invoice within 2 weeks.
Right to decline:
I reserve the right to decline tours or cancel with full refund, for any reason.
Cover Reveals, Sale/Book Blitzes, Blog Tours/Review opportunities can’t be cancelled once the sign-up form is live on my site. If for some reason there is no other option but to cancel, you will have to pay 50% of the full price to compensate for the work already done.
Notification of Changes:
This goes both way, I will notify you immediately of any changes and I ask that you do the same.
Need Something Not Mentioned:
Need something that is not mentioned? I am very flexible and want to organize a tour that best fits your needs! Just ask me and we’ll work on it together! Extra costs may apply.
If you chose En Pointe Author Services to host your event, we ask the following of our client:
Keep communication open, either through email, or social media sites.
Share the event and sign-up sheet on your social media site.
