We have had many of great opportunities come up for Book Bloggers and Children’s Book Authors over the last couple of weeks. I just wanted to do a quick overview of what we currently have going on.
Open Book Blasts
For each of the following Book Blasts, I provide you with the HTML for a post and you post the information on the dates specified. You will earn a free link in a shared Rafflecopter giveaway in each blast. Review copies are available for both these books. Just click on the covers for more information.
Open Book Review Blitzes
In the Book Review Blitz, bloggers receive a complimentary copy of a book in exchange for agreeing to post a review to Amazon, Goodreads and/or elsewhere. Bloggers can then earn entries into a Rafflecopter giveaway open only to book reviewers. An entry is earned only be providing a live link to a review. Click on a book cover below for more information. The date under the book cover is the end date for the blitz. Please note you can join in any time before the end date. (Look for another one coming up tomorrow for the Boulton Quest Series).
* You can review ANY or ALL of the Jack Templar Chronicles books by Jeff Gunhus. *
* You may choose one or both of Jeff Gunhus’ best-selling adult fiction titles *
July/August Book Blast Sign-Ups
Looking for quick and easy posts to keep your traffic up during the busy months of July and August?

And, if that’s not enough, all bloggers who participate in Book Blasts in July and August will earn at least ONE FREE link in a shared giveaway for a $100 Amazon gift card/PayPal cash (my Thank You!)
Book Review Blitz
Have you checked out our new service? The Book Review Blitz involves a focused effort on obtaining 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 prize in a giveaway. The Blitz can take place over a 2, 4, or 6 week period of time or longer.
Once all the reviews are in to Amazon, Goodreads, and/or other sites as specified by the author, MDBR will create a final Book Review Blitz post highlighting excerpts from the reviews obtained through the blitz as well as links to reviews posted on participating websites. A Book Review Blitz’s main purpose is to gain reviews for a book on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or websites.
To give an example, in our current blitz, Hello Bali, there have been 55 requests for review copies and as of today, 23 of those bloggers have posted reviews with 9 days to go!
Price Reduction on Book Blasts for July and August
For the months of July and August (2014), we will offer this service for only $50 USD + the cost of the giveaway prize. That is a $25 savings on our usual price.
A Book Blast involves multiple blogs all posting information about one book (i.e., title, summary, purchasing information, author information, etc.) over 1, 2, or 3 days. A Book Blast also 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, and so on. Each participating blogger posts roughly the same information and shares the post and giveaway via their social media networks.
The Book Blast is an easy and cost-effective way to share information about you and your book.
To date, I currently have 70+ bloggers signed up to participate in the Summer Book Blasts! That will be a high level of exposure for you!
