I don’t
know much about hosting book tours, but when the ladies at Twinja’s BookReviews started Diverse Book Tours, I had to add myself to the list of  blog hosts. We need more diverse books and we
also need to market those books. Plus, I’m a big fun of the dynamic duo and
their ability to dish out book reviews like nobody’s business.
Real
quick, here is my experience with being a tour host:
-I hosted
four books: Pig Park by Claudia Guadalupe Martinez, Dia of the Dead by Brit Brinson, The Savage Fortress by Sarwat Chadda, and
The Sanctum Series by Madhuri Blaylock.
The
comments may not be show it, but hosting the tour made December 2014 the most viewed month of my blog so far. I promoted thier books and the authors promoted by blogpost.  Win-Win.
-The Sanctum Series by Madhuri Blaylcok has the most pageviews. Two weeks later, Madhuri’s followers are still retweeting her
tweet about my blogpost. I can only dream of having readers and cool as hers.
-I tried to
post on the weekends, when I normally wouldn’t post anything. (Not that I am a
heavy poster anyway).
-I got
free books! Of course, a  review is
required, but there is no timelimit on the review.
-I recommend
  Dia of the Dead for a quick read,
  The Savage Fortress for a well-written meaty novel full of action and beautiful imagery,
  The Sanctum Series for action, sexiness, and teenage angst. 
-Hosting was easy! Most
of the promotion material was provided to me.
In conclusion, I definitely recommend tour hosting or just
plain book hosting. If nothing else, it’s a great way to get out there and meet new people.
