World's Best Story: Rewarding readers and book bloggers for telling the world they found a great story!
iRead is really excited to tell you about an innovative new contest platform for both readers and writers. We are now a proud sponsor for World's Best Story!
Okay, so why is iRead excited about World's Best Story? Because we work with both writers and readers and we have seen how powerful book bloggers are in telling the world about a great story. More and more authors and writers are discovering the power of readers. Books are written for the reader audience, so why not have a say in telling others we think a writer's story has blockbuster potential?
In view of this, iRead has put into place an exclusive offer for tour hosts who will help us spread the word.
But first let me tell you more about World's Best Story.

Going on a book tour with iRead was a fantastic experience. Laura is passionate about what she does, and it shows in both her personality and the level of effort she puts into arranging a tour. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to get word of their book out there!
