Testimonials for Book Tours
LOST COAST LITERARY - WOMEN'S FICTION
Sending a book out into the world can feel daunting and overwhelming. Where do you start and how do you manage the time it takes to reach out to bloggers and bookish influencers while still writing and editing? That’s where Digital Reads PR comes in. I can’t say enough about how easy it was to work with Shalini. She took all of the stress out of the process, from securing tour hosts to sending early copies of the book, cover, and marketing materials and managing and promoting every stop along the way. My Digital Reads PR tour wildly exceeded my expectations! Not only did the tour hosts share beautiful bookish photos, excerpts, and reviews, but they connected my book with so many new readers. It was like having an entire community cheering on my story and helping to launch the book out into the world. I highly recommend Digital Reads PR and will be using them for all future book releases! -Ellie Alexander
FLOWER POWER TRIP - COZY MURDER MYSTERY
Digital Reads Book Tours is a book launch and marketing tool that authors and readers need to know about. The owner, Shalini, is highly reputable and knowledgeable of the industry and covers a wide range of genres. She’s collected a plethora of engaged and excited readers who love to find great new novels and works of literature. I should know because I’ve been both a customer and a reader for this service. From a reader’s perspective, I’m pleased to see the variety of book types and authors who’ve partnered with Digital Reads for promotion across all the major social media platforms. Shalini and her team are organized, efficient, and pragmatic in their approach to matching books and readers, coordinating schedules, and a proposing a multitude of amazing post formats. I only wish I had more time to take part in her clever and detailed blog tours. From an author’s perspective, Digital Reads has been a fantastic partner. When I had a last-minute need for a cover reveal, Shalini stepped in to assist, and within an hour there were over fifteen volunteers ready and willing to post about my launch. Beyond traditional cover reveals and blog tours, Digital Reads Library also offers editing services, including proofreading, beta reading, and content suggestions. I’ve run several of my latest mystery series books by Shalini before launch, and let me assure, she has been a tremendous asset. I wouldn’t have been able to launch without the guidance and focus she lent to the process. Beyond the services you’ll get from Digital Reads Library, you’ll also find a fan. Shalini takes pride in getting to know her authors, continuing to promote them after the book is published and the tour is complete, and answering any and all questions. It’s rare to find someone so honest, dependable, and considerate. Even when she pushed me hard to change something, it was always done respectfully and with my best interests at heart. That’s the kind of team I want to work with… and so should you!
IN SERVITUDE - CRIME THRILLER
Getting your blog tour organised by Digital Read Book Tours is like having magic fairies sort out all the hard work for you, so you can sit back and watch the reviews from dedicated bloggers spread across blogs and social media. Shalini makes everything run smoothly (and is there to reassure you before the tour starts-- I was pretty nervous!) The bloggers truly care about doing a good job, giving honest opinions and giving authors a voice.
GOLDEN SKIES - FANTASY
Shalini gave me a crucial and key element many writers struggle with – connections. As a debut author, I am just now getting my feet under me, trying to build my brand. Lost and still learning by trial and error, Shalini made things easy for me by organizing an effective blog tour and providing concise information and instructions. It went flawlessly, and I got a decent amount of exposure for Golden Skies, meeting wonderful people along the way. I will definitely be returning to Shalini in the future.
DANIEL DANIELS - CHILDREN'S BOOKS
Digital Reads Blog Tours has been an incredible tool for promoting my independently published book. Shalini was knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. She guided me through the process, and was active on every available channel – WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads and Amazon. Not only did she work tirelessly to promote the book, she was also supportive of the bloggers, without whom none of this would have been possible. I am gearing up to use her services again for my next book. Side note: as an author, nothing is as exciting as seeing your book take pride of place on the Amazon estore. That is, until your book does a Digital Reads Blog Tour and you get to see honest reviews stream in from around the blogosphere. Now THAT is exciting.
