Events We Organize

Blog Tours – A Blog tour is a virtual event like a book tour at a library or bookstore that allows an author to reach thousands of readers and offers the bloggers a chance to grow their followers and share new books. Tours include review opportunities, author interviews, guest posts, and giveaways to share with your audience. Those who choose to review will get an ARC or print copy of the book to share their thoughts. Those who choose to participate in a non-review post will get an excerpt. Both reviewers and non-reviewers may choose to ask the author interview questions and enter giveaways. Tours run 1 to 2 weeks. No limit on participation but if you want a specific date, sign up early.

Blitzes – A blitz is a little shout-out to the world about a current book that’s on sale, or new release, or one that’s up for pre-order to help the author promote their book and gain more readers. Blitzes include release blitzes, book blitzes, pre-order blitzes, and more. Hosting blitzes helps bloggers continue to grow their following. Often these include an excerpt. Sometimes these come with giveaways that you and your followers can enter. Blitzes are 3-day events. There is no limit on participation.

Cover Reveals – These are little shout-outs to let the world know a new book is coming soon and to share these amazing covers. You get to see the book for the first time before the public and help the author gather buzz for their upcoming book. Other reveal options are trailer and excerpt reveals. Cover and other reveals are 1-day events. There is no limit on participation. 

Tuesday Teasers – These are specifically on Tuesdays and give a sneak peek of what the book or upcoming release entails. Showcasing teaser graphics with quotes and special excerpts. There is no limit on participation.

types of Blog Tour Posts

We offer a few types of posts you can choose to host for our blog tours, such as promo posts, reviews, excerpts, guest posts, and author interviews. Except for promo posts, you can choose a combo of the following posts to host. For example, you can choose to host a guest post and a review, or an excerpt and an author interview.

Promo Post

  • A basic promotional post that includes information about the book, the author, their social media links, and the buy links.
  • Sometimes these will include an excerpt.
  • These do not include a guest post or author interview. If you want to host a guest post or author interview, please sign up for those in the signup forms.

Review Posts

  • Review options are often added to our tours.
  • ARCS are sent out at least 4 weeks before the tour start date.
  • We ask that you post your review on your scheduled tour date and on Amazon and Goodreads (if you have those accounts.)
  • For our Review Only blogs and Booktube hosts, we ask that you have your reviews posted by the end of the tour schedule.
  • We ask that you share your review links with us so that we can pass these along to the authors.


  • Are a special part of the book chosen by the author. Often there is more than 1 excerpt to choose from and when that occurs, we ask that you only choose one excerpt to post.

Guest Posts

  • A topic of discussion that the tour host suggests for the author to write about.
  • Topic examples could be: what is your writing routine like? What advice do you have for a blossoming author?
  • Please have your topic emailed to us no later than 3 weeks before the tour start date so that the author has time to write about your topic.

Author Interview

  • This is your time to interview the author and inquire about them, their writing, and any fun questions you’d like to know as well.
  • Please have your interview questions emailed to us no later than 3 weeks before the tour start date, so that the author has time to fill out your questions.

Additional Information

Please feel free to email us at  at any time with questions, comments, or concerns.

Quill and Ink Book Tours is looking forward to having you on our team!
