I'm learning quite a bit as a debut author. And blog touring is one of these aspects. My MG historical fiction, The Heart Changer is going on tour May 20th to 24th — even if I can’t. I was hoping for some R&R, but that comes at the beginning of June. Here is the link: Just Read Blog & Review Tour if you are interested in those who expertly share your book with their readership. It’s not possible for debut authors to be at all places all the time so this essentially doubles their reach. I consider it a jump-start to our career. . .
Sometimes, there is a fee, usually it includes a giveaway — you supply the books, they give them away. Occasionally, you can choose to offer an e-book in place of a physical one. Many times, you are responsible to ship the autographed book to the winner.
So which companies offer this opportunity?
Here is the link for Just Reads Publicity Tour (the group reviewing my book this week).

Another helpful article about Online Book Tours by Book Marketing Tools — a good site to be connected with.
Another something I discovered was the audio version of my novel. Yay! I was thrilled when I listened to the excerpt. Brittany did a stellar job! FYI, she had asked for a list of difficult words to pronounce, and a recording of the way I wanted them to be read. What a thoughtful thing to do. So, if there are any mistakes, (I doubt it) you can blame me.

Speaking of debut authors -- The Heart Changer has 17 reviews right now on Amazon. Can you help me reach 25? If you have read my story, please give me an honest review on Amazon, (most important) Goodreads, Barnes and Noble and/or Bookbub. You can copy and paste the same review to all the online sites. Easy-peasy!
I'd sure appreciate it!
My MG Biblical fiction "The Heart Changer" debuted in 2019 with Ambassador International.
