Back in the early days of Pump Up Your Book Promotion, I used to send an email at the end of each book tour to those bloggers who hosted my clients. It was my small way of thanking them for their efforts in promoting our books.
As Pump Up has grown, however, I find myself sometimes struggling to coordinate one month's tours while promoting the current month's tours, blog, write, volunteer, and be a wife and mother. I've gotten away from sending these emails to our blog hosts. Not because I appreciate them any less; on the contrary, with the tremendous growth Pump Up has experienced since I came on in 2007, I appreciate their efforts even more because we keep them busy. Sending those emails has just gotten almost impossible when juggling double the amount of clients I used to when I started.
While checking tour stops today, I noticed that several of my hosts took the time to add extras to their posts: excerpts, trailers, tour banners, etc. Pump Up Your Book Promotion has some of the best, if not the best, blog hosts in the business. These bloggers really give it their all when promoting our clients.
So, for the record, I want all of our tour hosts to know that we appreciate what you do. Here's a big thank you to all of our blog hosts: the ones who have been with us for years and the new ones who contact us expressing interest in reviewing our clients' books on an almost daily basis.
We couldn't do this without you and you make this job a real pleasure!
