Blog Tour Policy


With my growing TBR and juggling school, work, and reading, I will not have time to review every book. However, I can offer to spotlight your book or product on my blog through a variety of posts. These are purely to help spread the word about your book. Please note that I will not accept books that I would otherwise not purchase or read for my own pleasure. I would suggest you familiarize yourself with the types of books I read and review, along with the guidelines for requesting a Blog Tour post. I am more likely to accept posts from authors and publishers who fulfill the requirements I set out below.
I have participated in a variety of blog tours, including review only tours. You can see examples of a variety of these Blog Tour posts below or through searing "blog tour" on the search function in my sidebar:
The following are the types of posts I am currently offering to host on Books and Ladders:
  • Excerpts
  • Cover Reveals 
  • Guest Post
  • Author Interview
  • Character Interview
  • Top 10 Post
  • Playlist
Much like the Review Requests I accept, I will only spotlight novels in genres that fit with the brand of my blog:
  • Young Adult Contemporary
  • Young Adult Science Fiction
  • Young Adult Fantasy
  • Young Adult Historical Fiction
  • Young Adult Mystery
  • Adult Science Fiction
  • Adult Fantasy
Please contact me about hosting your book on Books and Ladders through my email at jkramer@booksandladders.ca with the subject line "BLOG TOUR REQUEST: Book Name by Author" with the following information:
  • Book Information (Title, Author, Publication Date, Genre, Synopsis) 
  • Type of Post Preferred
  • Preferred Posting Date/Month
Should I accept, I will respond to your email and request any other information necessary for the post including social media links, author photos, and materials. However, please note that I will only accept Excerpts, Guest Posts, or Interviews that have new content and a guarantee that this will not be posted elsewhere unless it is directly linked back to my blog.

Any requests must be made 6-8 weeks in advance to accommodate for scheduling on my blog. If the post is to coincide with a release date, please tell me this in the request email. I will do my best to accommodate such requests, but this may not always be possible. I am more likely to be able to accommodate such requests if I receive the information 6-8 weeks in advance.

The post itself will include your exclusive content plus all the following information:
    • Title
    • Author, including social media links
    • Series, if applicable
    • Publisher
    • Publication Date
    • Purchase Links
    • Goodreads Link
    • Summary
Most importantly, this post will be a top post for the day. I will actively tweet about it and it's content a maximum of six times throughout the day, tagging you in each tweet.
If your book isn't at the review or spotlight stage yet and you need someone to look over your work as a beta reader, I offer this through Books Are My Fandom as a paid service. If you haven't had your book read by a third party that isn't directly related to you (or a member of your Street Team), please consider doing this before requesting either a review or a spotlight. You can read why I think Beta Readers are essential to the novel process here.
