Au revoir expensive and exhausting traveling from town to town to promote your book at in-person events! Instead, you make virtual appearances on a number of book blogs.
Remember: passionate book bloggers are great at spreading the word on all kinds of social platforms about the books they enjoy.

  • France Book Tours finds readers interested in reading your book [you send them a free print or digital copy, your choice]. They will review your book on their own book blog at a date agreed upon.

  • So your book gets not only visible on France Book Tours, but also on 5 or 10 or more blogs, and to all the readers of these blogs and their followers on social media !
