Tour & Services


General Info on Tours

  • WWVBT coordinates tours for all genre pre-release and post-release. We support traditionally published, as well as, indie and self-published authors. Everything is organized for  you to make promoting your book via blog tours stress free. The only thing the author/publisher must do is provide review copies, write guest posts, and answer interviews, when necessary.
  • WWVBT cannot promise that reviewers will like your book. We do not pay for reviews. By booking a tour, you aren’t paying for  review and so bloggers are free to review honestly. If they do not like the book, we simply request that they post the review following the tour.
  • If you choose to run a giveaway, we will gladly create and run the Rafflecopter, so all you have to do is provide the prize or giveaway items.
  • We handle the work and time consuming details, so you can write and focus on your book!

Submit a Request

If you are interested in booking a tour or one of our services:

please email tia [at] worldwindtours [dot] com with “Tour Request” as your subject.

Include the following in your email:

▪   The tour or service you want
▪    Book title & description
▪    Genre
▪    Book Cover
▪    Release date and/or any other information you deem important

Note: I have the right to refuse any books/tours that I do not think will be a good fit for my bloggers.  I also reserve the right to cancel an event at any time, for any reason, for a full refund.

Invoicing will be done following acceptance of your tour/event and must be paid in full prior to working on your tour.

Notes on Package and Pricing: Proofread is for 80,000 words or less. If you’re novel is longer, it is subject to extra fees. The formatting is basic and for ebooks only. If you want something special or fancy fonts, images, etc. that will cost extra. We sometimes design the covers with our graphic designers; however, we mostly contract out with veteran cover designers. We work with you and the designer to get you the cover you want, whether a premade or custom. Package includes a premade and some custom designs; however, a custom design is likely to incur extra fees due to detailed work and purchase of added stockphotos, as well as any full wrap for paperbacks. Price of this package depends on the options you choose, such as, premade cover or custom.

Thunderclap is a social media platform to drive a wave of support for your new release.

Our blurb editor has over a dozen years of experience with blurb writing and editing for traditional publishing houses, as well as indie authors. Click here for some examples of blurbs he’s written. Ignore the fees, as it is included in this release package.
