We offer a range of opportunities for children’s book bloggers and authors to help share information about great children’s books. All of our opportunities include incentives such as receiving free books, links in our shared Rafflecopter giveaways (which will get you LOTS of new followers), and in some cases, you will also be entered into a draw to win gift cards or cash prizes. Importantly, I vet all of the books I am asked to promote so while you may not necessarily like every book (due to preference), they are all books that I personally would rate a 4 or 5 star.
Here are some of the opportunities we offer on a regular basis:
A Book Blast involves multiple blogs (including MDBR) all posting information about one book (i.e., title, summary, purchasing information, author information, etc.) over 1, 2, or 3 days. A Book Blast involves a shared Rafflecopter giveaway (usually for a $25, $50, or $100 Amazon gift card and/or PayPal cash) where individuals gain entries by adding the book to a Goodreads shelf, following the author, following the participating blogs, and so on. Participating bloggers will have one FREE link in the giveaway. I provide the HTML for a post and each participating blogger posts roughly the same information and shares the post and giveaway via their social media networks. Additionally, the author may choose to make review copies available to participating bloggers. If you ask for a copy of the book, it would be very helpful to the author if you would post a review as part of your Book Blast post and/or posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
Benefits to you: Free link in Rafflecopter widget; Increase in number of followers; Increase in traffic; Free book (sometimes)
Book Review Blitz
A Book Review Blitz involves posting reviews of a book on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or other websites as directed by the author/publisher/publicist in exchange for a complimentary electronic copy of a book + a chance to win a gift card/cash prize in a giveaway. Each site where you post a review will earn you one entry into the giveaway. Additionally, MDBR will create a final Book Review Blitz highlighting excerpts from the reviews obtained through the blitz as well as links to reviews posted on participating websites, thus creating traffic for your site.
Benefits to you: Higher profile as Amazon and/or Goodreads reviewer; Free book; Chance to win gift cards/cash prizes; Increase in traffic
A Blog Tour involves multiple sites (including MDBR) posting book reviews, author interviews, excerpts or other information about a book. All blog tour hosts receive a complimentary copy of the book. I provide participating hosts with the HTML for a post and you add a review, author interview, or guest post. Tours will last between 1 week and 3 weeks and you can request a date within the blog tour window. I stop by your site to read your post, leave a comment, and share via my social media networks. For each blog tour, all hosts are entered into a draw to win 1 of 3 $5 Amazon gift cards (or PayPal cash prizes).
Benefits to you: Free book; Chance to win gift cards/cash prizes; Increase in traffic
