1) What exactly does Romance Novel Promotions do?

The simple answer to this questions, is just about anything an author needs to free up their time. If you need help with a task, just ask, I will let you know if I can help.

2) Are service charged monthly, per book, or task oriented?

Any of the above

3) Why should I purchase a book promotion package?

Book promotion packages help to get your book into the public's eye and to inform everyone that your book is available. There are A LOT of books out there in the romance genre therefore readers have a lot of options. If readers see your book on their favorite blogs or see positive reviews about your book, they are more likely to buy it. If you give them a little teaser, they are going to want to buy the book to get the rest. Getting you to "visit" blogs and talk about yourself, your books, and your writing experiences will make the readers feel more connected to you.  If they feel close to you as an author and feel like you care about them they are more likely to support you buy buying your book. 

4) What is a street team and how will it benefit me as an author?

A street team is a group of readers that promote for you. I compare them to fan clubs. They allow you to constantly be in the public's eye even when you are in your cave. They post on social sites, talk to their friends and family, and sometimes random people they meet on the bus, at the coffee shop, or at the bookstore, and they hand out promo (bookmarks, romance trading cards, postcards, etc) to those people. The benefit to you is, like stated above, you can concentrate on writing and not marketing. The benefits to the readers, they get inside information, first glimpses at covers and excerpts, and a chance to chat with their favorite authors. The authors also benefit because they have a support group. People that will help them through a tough scene, name a character, ect. Most readers love to help out in any way they can and are happy to spread the love.

5) Do you offer blog advertising?

I personally do not but I have information on other blogs that do. If you are interested, contact me for more information. 

6) How does Romance Novel Promotions invoice and what payments types are accepted? 

For monthly clients, invoices are sent via email the first week of the month. For promotional clients, invoices are sent via email when service is complete.  Payments that are accepted are personal check or money order made out to ROMANCE NOVEL PROMOTIONS and Paypal. The email for Paypal is

7) How do the personal assistant services work?

This is an as needed services and will be prices based on what service(s) are needed and how much time it will take to complete the task. We can set this up for a specific task that happens each month or just once and a while. 

8) What is a book tour?

A book tour can be scheduled for either 5 days or 10 days. This is when a book goes on tour at various blogs. I will schedule up to 3 blogs per day and each blog will post the book cover, blurb, excerpt, buy links, and author information. 

*Providing book information for each blog
*Tour Image
*Posting on FB and twitter each day of the tour
*Follow up on any prizes and contacting winners

9) What is a virtual tour?

A virtual tour is very similar to a book tour except it requires more of the the author's participation and time. This can either be scheduled for 5 days or 10 days. I will schedule up to 3 blogs per day and each blog will post the book cover, blurb, excerpt, buy links, and author information. In addition to this, the author will provide something fun to go along with the book information. Ideas are: guest post, interview, character interview, deleted scene, alternate POV, etc. Unless otherwise specified, what happens on the blog is determined on the blog when they sign up. If you have a special thing you want done we can talk about that when scheduling. 

*Providing book information for each blog
*Coordinating activity with blog and providing necessary information
*Tour Image
*Posting on FB and twitter each day of the tour
*Follow up on any prizes and contacting winners

10) What is an excerpt tour?

This can be scheduled either 5 day or 10 day (no weekends), 1 blog per day. Each blog will recieve all the book and author information. Athe author will provide us with an extended excerpt from the book. This excerpt will then be broken up into pieces and sent to each of the blogs. The readers have to follow along each day in order to read the entire excerpt.

11) What is a launch party?

A launch party is a release day event but can be used for any one day event, birthday, anniversary, etc. The event will take place on the 'host' author's blog (if one is not available, my site will be the host site) Typcially these run for 8-10 hours throughout the day. Starting at 8:00 am CST the host author will have another author visit their blog each hour. Each author will bring book information and a giveaway. All posts will be scheduled in advance and will post on various FB groups/pages and twitter. 

How does this help me as the host author?

Cross promotion is very helpful in the romance industry. Readers are prone to following thier favorite authors and love to learn about new authors. When an author is involved in an event like this, they bring thier readers in, therfore you, as the host author get more eyes on your book. 

12) What are other events that you offer? 

I offer a few one day events for book promotions, cover reveals, release day spotlight, and pre-order blitz. Each of these events run the same way. I send out an invite to a list of blogs and have the book cover, blurb, excerpt, buy/pre-order links, and the author information put on as many blogs as possible for one day. 

13) Should I offer a prize?

Yes, you should offer a prize. I strongly recommend adding a prize to any of the promotional activities above. This encourages reader participation and ultimately a mor s
