The Awareness Tour: Virtual Children's Book Tours


Virtual Book Tours—Visibility Meets Credibility

The Children’s Book Review is a resource devoted to children’s literacy and we are always discovering new and talented authors and illustrators to share with readers. TCBR’s readers are made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians. We receive approximately 300,000 unique visitors annually and this number is continually growing as we gain popularity with our loyal readership of book lovers.

When I reflect on our experience with The Children's Book Review, all that comes to mind is "Wow!" We decided to hire a blog tour company for our first middle-grade book release to make life easier, and TCBR came highly recommended. Now I understand why... Bianca and her team provided first-class service from start to finish. The communication was always timely and clear. TCBR was always responsive to questions and feedback. The data was comprehensive. And the results we got were fantastic! Our giveaway had well over 2,800 entries and the social media promos had almost 15K impressions. There's no doubt that TCBR played a significant role in the success of our launch campaign.
Marketing a children’s book can often feel like an uphill battle but The Children’s Book Review makes reaching parents, grandparents and teachers so easy. [T]he service and value is exceptional.
I enjoyed the tour and thought [the] professionalism, dedication and generosity in all matters was superb. My first blog tour and [the] choices considering how to arrange the tour, blog sites, interviews, reviews, guest spots was better than excellent. You have a significant capacity for organizing and managing a blog tour and for accomplishing  success for everyone involved. Thank you for the magnificent introduction and pleasant adventure of a blog tour.  5-Stars
