Andromeda’s Fall Blog Tour: Retrospective

I love a good blog tour, and I think this was my best yet! And it was entirely due to Ms. Deejay and the awesome folks at Masquerade Crew Tours!

Masquerade Crew Rock!
Before I get into the retrospective on all the stops and fun, I want to take a moment to call out exactly why I think Masq Crew did such an awesome job.

  1. Well Organized – I didn’t have to lift a finger. Deejay worked with each host. For guest posts she got specific topics or let me know if it was up to me. Even offered to help me come up with topics.
  2. Good Mix – Deejay made sure I had a good mix of posts in my tour – from guest posts, to top 10 lists, to reviews. I was especially surprised and happy with the number of hosts who signed up to do reviews (and even more happy that they ended up liking the book!).
  3. Great Communication – Deejay was timely in requesting anything she needed and letting me know about next steps. If any bloggers missed their day to post, she was on top of it. In addition, the tweet blasts were off-the-hook. I know MasqCrew’s tweet capabilities, and boy did they put it to work for me!
  4. Immediate Impact – This is the first time I’ve seen a significant increase in sales during a blog tour. I love blog tours because of the opportunity to interact with bloggers/reviewers and readers alike. But I saw a big pop in my sales as well, and that’s awesome!
You can probably tell that I was thrilled with this blog tour, and I’ll definitely be going to MasqCrew in May when Black Orchid makes an appearance.

So, once again, a huge thank you to the MasqCrew team for all your help! And giant thank you to all the bloggers/reviewers for hosting me!!!
