Cover Reveal: Secrets to a Successful Blog Tour

Hey Everyone - I have a BIG surprise for you!! Donna Huber - the mastermind GURU behind my book launch virtual tours and owner of GWR Publicity is putting out a book with all of her SECRETS for a successful blog tour!

Donna is an awesome publicist, but today we get to switch roles, and I get to do her cover reveal!... Isn't it great?

Here's the scoop on her new book:

From the publicist who introduced the world to Fifty Shades of Grey, Donna Huber is now revealing her secrets to successful blog tours. She shares tips and tricks learned through organizing over 30 tours, blasts, and promotional events for nearly 50 independently and traditionally published titles.

Secrets revealed in this quick read include,

Planning stage decisions
Different types of tours
Recruiting bloggers and keeping requests organized
Best practice communication tips
Tricks to making a great guest appearance
How to organize a fun (and legal) giveaway
Actions to take during the tour
Next steps once the tour is complete
Virtual tour and other promotional opportunities
When to hire a professional

In this easy to follow manual, Donna does not stop there. She spills even more of her blog tour secrets to help authors get the most out of their events by providing,

Tour checklist
Tour invite tips
Step-by-step guide to creating tour graphics
10 broad guest post topics
25 sample interview questions

“I highly recommend this book for authors about to release their first – or their fiftieth! – book”
~Alison Deluca, author of the Crown Phoenix series

Donna Huber is an avid reader and natural encourager. She is the blogger behind Girl Who Reads where, in addition to book reviews and author appearances, she writes the popular blogging advice series, Tips on Thursday. She has worked as a freelance publicist since 2010 assisting publishers and authors with their marketing and publicity needs. Most notably, she was the publicist for The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House edition of Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker by E. L. James.

When she is not doling out blogging advice or promoting the next bestseller, she can be found spending time with family (particularly the four legged, furry members), rewatching Downton Abbey and Harry Potter, or trying to make a dent in her never ending to-be-read pile.

Look for Secrets to a Successful Blog Tour coming this June!!


  1. Thanks for helping me out with the cover reveal today. It's a little odd being on this side of the fence.

  2. Wish I'd had this a couple of weeks ago, but I've bookmarked it and will get it after I get some sleep. I don't dare make purchases when I've been up for seventeen hours. Can't wait to see what this says so hopefully the next time won't be so....I don't want to call it disappointing, because the bloggers were great. It was just not like the others I've done. So time to educate myself. :)
