A book blitz is a one to three day event which releases a heavy media push for your book. A book blitz can include any combination of cover reveal, small book excerpt and/or book synopsis for the promotion.
A virtual tour (or blog tour) schedules your book to be reviewed and/or featured on a series of websites, blogs or literary webzines for a specified duration of time, usually between one and six weeks. Each blog stop along the tour will feature either a book review, book excerpt, author Q&A or author guest post.
Virtual book tours are usually coordinated to operate at approximately the same time the book is released so that readers can purchase the book through provided links to book retailers.
