In April and May we toured The Publicist (Book 1 & 2) by Christina George. The response was fantastic and Christina launched an Exclusive Reader Buzz Club for her readers with the promise of free books! I love authors who connect with their readers. So I'm sharing with you a letter from Christina to her past, current and future readers:
Dear fabulous readers,
First off thanks so much for your support. The emails I've gotten about The Publicist have been pretty amazing.
I wanted to just quickly let you know that you are officially part of the Exclusive Reader Buzz Club for Book Three and as soon as it’s done, I’ll send a copy your way.
I also wanted to let you know two things:
You can invite up to ten people to do this. Just forward them this email!
Why am I doing this? Well, hundreds of readers from book one and two have written me asking about book three and I was really grateful for the feedback. I thought: I wonder if we can buzz a book without Oprah. I mean, I work in publishing and I get the importance of that, but what authors (and publishers) often overlook is the significance of the reader! So, without any ads, any major media or any big promotion I wanted to see what I could do, just on my own. So far, the book one and book two bundle has gone from 20 reviews to 150 in three weeks. I can honestly say the support and kind words have humbled me.
I hope you'll encourage your friends to participate!
Thanks for your time.
Christina George, Author

Not only does Lauren do a fantastic job of organizing the tour and communicating with you at every step of the way, but I found the tour hosts that signed up for her tour to be of a higher caliber. The reviews that I got on this tour were thoughtful and well-written and I noticed an uptick in sales during this tour. I also appreciated the fact that many of her tour hosts that wrote reviews posted them on multiple sites, not just on their blog or Instagram account. This is invaluable to an author. I highly recommend Lauren and iReads Book Tours. - Allyson Rice, author of The Key to Circus-Mom Highway
Lauren Carr's iReads Book Tour is amazing! She gets real results. Not only did I get thousands of new eyes on my series, but I grew my following on all social media channels as well. Lauren has a dedicated group of reviewers and bloggers who are competent and reliable - no more wasted ARCs mailed out with no results.
