Orangeberry Summer Splash. 100 Authors. 100 Blogs.

As Orangeberry Book Tours reaches its 100th book tour, I will be organising a special mini book tour marathon, Orangeberry Summer Splash from 1st August to 31st August.

The goal is to get 100 authors and 100 book blogs to participate in this campaign that is set to raise awareness for all participating authors and books.

- 5 blog stops (may or may not be consecutively) per book
- 1 TwitterView
- 1 Twitter Blast (#OBSummer #Books)
- 12 months FREE advertising at the Orangeberry sidebar worth $19.99 per book
- FREE listing in Books, Blogs & Smiles 3 or 4 worth $10.00 per book
- Loads of social media publicity before, during and after the event for you and your book

2. Blog hosts will choose to feature you in ONE of the following ways
- Guest Post
- Book Feature
- Book Review
- Author Interview

3. Giveaways are not compulsory but if you would like to do this, do let me know. My email is

4. Each blog host will receive a $5 gift as a token of appreciation and there will be a Kindle Fire giveaway so there will be a participating fee of $25 per book.

5. The purpose of this marketing campaign is to increase awareness for your book and the number of book sales or book reviews will differ from book to book.

6. This event is open to ALL authors and genres but please indicate the rating for your book accurately.

Orangeberry Book Tours Sponsorship Options

1. You may host any number of authors but you cannot host the same book more than once.

2. The list of books will be updated every Monday night (approximately 2200 hours GMT) so do check back as often as you can for more authors & books.

3. You may choose to feature the selected author / book in ONE of the following ways
- Guest Post

6. You must send me the link once it's up and share your post on Twitter with the hashtags #OBSummer #Books

7. Each blog host will receive a $5 / uk giftcard or cash via PayPal AFTER the event. The $5 gift is a token of appreciation for your time and effort to host this author. It is in no way a payment for a positive review of the book you are hosting.

8. To sign up for an author, click ON the line "Sign up here to host this book". If you do not see this line, it means the slots are filled and you will have to pick another book.

ALL participants (authors and blog hosts) are in the running to win a Kindle Fire.
