I felt like a queen for the entire 8 days of my tour, because they treated me and my book with THAT much care and consideration. Mushy stuff aside, my sales skyrocketed over the course of the tour, and I feel a lot of that is thanks to these amazing gals. I cannot recommend them enough.”

Kate King, USA Today and International Best-Selling Author of Wilde Fae: Lords of the Hunt"I absolutely loved working with the tour gals and found it to be absolutely worth it for entering the Romantasy space. I’ve done more standard Instagram PR tours before that had more participants, but far less return on investment. Every post made a huge difference to my Amazon ranking, and introduced me to readers I never would have reached otherwise. 10/10.”

It's been almost a month now and I'm still seeing results from it! New readers message me often that they found me through BTG, and I just cannot recommend them enough. They are all so sweet and I will DEFINITELY be coming back to do another tour with them."

S.J. Tilly, Author of the Sleet series"Working with the Book Tour Gals was an absolute pleasure!

I’m happy to have worked with them and even happier to call them my friends.”

Kate Golden, Author of A Dawn of Onyx"The gals were so easy to work with, thoughtful, creative and I saw a huge boost in sales and interactions when they posted. I will be doing all of my book launches and cover reveals with them!”
