Testimonials about my blog tour services
“Lola cares about writers. When I initially tried to arrange a book tour with her, Lola contacted me and said that my current cover didn’t match the content of the book, and that may have hindered the success of my tour. That told me Lola wasn’t just interested in “”taking my money.”” She cares about writers and promoting their books.
That said. Once I got a new, more appealing cover for my book, Lola arranged a wonderful tour that really helped bring attention to my book.
– Dan O’Mahony
“I always use Lola’s book tour services when I release a new book. She is kind and courteous and professional. Best of all, she helps generate sales for me and gives my books the exposure they need.”
– Justine Carver
“I partnered with Lola’s Blog Tours to help promote my debut novel via a Bookstagram Blitz. From the moment we began working together to the time our project concluded, she has been incredibly responsive and approachable. Our time difference was never an issue, and actually not something I realized existed until towards the end of the project! I’m new to everything regarding book promotions, so it was great having a partner that I could ask questions to and know that they would be answered thoughtfully and without any judgment. Another element of Lola’s setup that I appreciated was the level of promotion before the blitz. Lola did not only work specifically on getting the Blitz set up, but she promoted it days before the blitz, updated links on the landing page, and remained engaged. ”
– B.T. Polcari
“I have genuinely enjoyed working with Lola’s Blog Tours. Lola is wonderful to work with – always quick to respond, answer questions, and make any adjustments I ask for (for example, she quickly updated my book blurb when I wanted to change it). I signed up for a blog tour for my first book, The Dating Intervention, and she facilitated a great experience. Lots of bloggers signed up and reviewed it, and even did fun posts about it (like my main character’s top ten dating tips). In addition to helping me with the blog tour I signed up for, Lola also helped me get some books on Goodreads when I struggled with using the platform. I will continue to work with Lola, and I highly recommend her. ”
– Hilary Dartt
“Lola is very organized and is an excellent communicator. She helped us with a tour for a middle grade fantasy novel and worked with us every step of the way, even when we had to update some of our materials last minute. She’s professional and personable, and we will work with her again in the future.”
– GenZ Publishing
“Lola was super communicative & made sure to get Seneca Element in front of the right YA bloggers and readers. ”
– Rayya Deeb
“I’m very happy I chose to work with Lola for the Grimworld blog tour. She was prompt in response, well organized, easy to work with, and was understanding when there were some snafus on my end. I’m grateful for the extra exposure and reviews the tour generated. I’d highly recommend Lola’s services!”
– Avery Moray
“I wasn’t sure that this book would work for a book tour because it’s non-fiction, self-help, but Lola was confident she could put something together and she did! She is detail oriented and extremely professional. Everything she promises she delivers on. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend. ”
– Andrea Waltz, publicist for Branden Lanette
“Lola’s blog tour has provided an incredible boost to sales and overall visibility. I truly appreciate Lola’s time and expertise, and look forward to working with her again in the future.”
– Anderson O’Donnell
“Lola’s Blog Tour exceeded my expectations. Lola was always helpful and answered requests promptly. She helped me get on several blogs. I’m very grateful. I would use Lola’s services again if I publish another book. This blog tour is a very good deal for the price. ”
– Carol Anne Douglas
“Lola did a lovely job promoting my parallel universe scifi novel, Crossline. Lola was responsive, friendly, and did everything she said she would do. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I would definitely sign up again for another blog tour. ”
– Russ Colchamiro
“Lola’s Blog Tour did exactly what I needed, it spread the word about my new book, Louisiana Latte. This is a fantastic way to promote your book. Thank you Lola! ”
– Rebecca Henry
“I was very happy with my decision to use Lola’s Blog Tours to promote my novel. Lola was friendly, professional and prompt in getting back to me when I had questions or concerns. Lola’s Blog Tours gave my self-published novel the exposure it needed! I would recommend her to other authors seeking to market their work in a cost-effective manner. ”
– Alanna Mackenzie
“‘In good hands’ was the general feeling from the very start. Lola was professional, polite and very active with her services and I was very pleased with the Book Blitz for my book, Beneath the Ferny Tree. I would not hesitate in recommending her to any author wishing to promote their publication. Thanks to Lola Blog Tours!”
– David Schembri
“Lola was a true pro throughout the process. She was organized and kept me in the loop from the moment we began our collaboration until well after the tour itself wrapped up. I never had to ask for updates or clarifications, because she had already anticipated every question that came to mind. I truly appreciated her professionalism and hard work. Both were evident in the results.”
– Laura Chapman
“Lola is friendly, helpful and gave excellent advice throughout the duration of the tour.
This is great value for money, considering that via other sites, you can purchase three honest book reviews for the same cost as the entire tour which Lola runs! It is also a really useful insight into book marketing, and Lola clearly has some great contacts. Also, she’s very responsive to emails, which really makes a difference.
If you are an indie author looking to promote your book, I highly recommend using Lola’s services :)”
– Morgan Dun-Campbell
“Lola’s Blog Tour is an excellent idea for spreading the word about your novel! It’s great value for your money, and Lola is a joy to work with. She makes everything so user-friendly and reply’s to any questions with patience, speed, and kindness. I will definitely be doing this again!
Thank you, Lola!”
– SGD Singh
“Lola is a gem! She put together a busy and diverse book tour with many bloggers. She was great to work with, and so kind. I will certainly use her for future tours.”
– Jessica Redmserki
“I always love to work with Lola. She’s amazing and helps bring attention to my blog and my book. I’m very grateful I found her online. I would recommend her to any author who needs a variety of amazing services for very reasonable prices.”
– Blaise Ramsay
“I loved working with Lola! I contacted her such a short time before my book’s release (I panicked last-minute when it became clear I couldn’t possibly rally enough bookstagrammers myself) that I wasn’t sure she’d agree to do a blitz. But within a few days, she’d put together an amazing book blitz with over a dozen bloggers/ bookstagrammers, including a giveaway and a custom banner, selecting a duration that would garner the most visibility for my book. Communicating easily and often, Lola updated me before, during, and after the blitz to let me know how things were going (how many had signed up, how many had posted unique photos to Instagram, etc.). She was active on Twitter and Facebook, promoting the blitz several times throughout the day/ week, often more than I was. Promo and marketing don’t come easily to me, and Lola made a potentially daunting process a lot of fun! She’s phenomenal, and I highly recommend her. ”
– Lynn Turner
“I am very glad I came across Lola on google. She helped get some much needed exposure for a self-titled novel. I will gladly be returning to use her services for future titles.
I would recommend her to anyone.”
– Blaise Ramsay
“I really enjoyed working with Lola and on my Book Blitz! Yeah! Everything was well organized, and Lola thought of several things that I would not have. She is a self-starter. I never had to ask once about the status of my tour as I was well informed from start to finish. The best part was that I could concentrate with interacting with folks and responding, while knowing the details were taken care of. I would definitely use Lola’s services again. I have the cover reveal for my second book already scheduled!”
– RJ Wood
“I was really impressed with Lola’s Blog Tours. Everything was super easy to set up (from my end) and very professionally done. I was pleasantly surprised with the number of people who signed up to be part of my cover reveal, and that Lola shared the blog posts to further boost the reach. I heartily recommend Lola’s Blog Tours to anyone interested in the services.”
– Rachel de la Fuente
“Very thorough and professional service. Also Dec. 7-20 was very timely for a tour for my Christmas novel. I had a very good book sale during the tour–5288 downloads of the free book over 2 weekends. I also got 3 new reviews so far, so that’s great. Thanks, Lola”
– Amy Gettinger
“I got to know Lola as a fellow book blogger, watching her business steadily grow over the last couple of years. I was impressed at her attention to detail and the strong, friendly relationship she had with many of the authors she had worked with.
So when I considered launching my debut science fiction novel, Running Out of Space, onto an unsuspecting world with a blog tour, Lola was the obvious choice. She immediately responded with clear, courteous instructions on what she would need from me, giving me plenty of time to produce the necessary material. Whenever I had questions, no matter how daft, she was always prompt in providing answers.
Of course, it’s relatively easy to look reasonably good when things are going well. But I threw a massive spanner in the works with just over a week to go before the book launch, when I decided a major change to the book needed to be made that impacted on the blurb and the extracts. I got my head down and managed to make the necessary changes so we were able to proceed without postponing the launch – but that was only because Lola was so very responsive in contacting all the bloggers who had signed up and passing across the new material. When during the tour, one of the hosts had a non-responsive link, Lola investigated the problem and provided me with a new one within the hour.
Throughout the whole duration of the blog, Lola has been a constant presence online, retweeting and publicising the tour and ensuring it continued appearing on the Twitter stream throughout the day. I cannot thank her enough for her prompt efficiency and supportive friendliness that has made her a pleasure to work with.
I’m in the process of planning the launch of my next book in the series and it’s a no-brainer – once again, I’m going to be asking Lola to organise the blog tour for me. ”
– SJ Higbee
“Working with Lola’s Blog Tours was a great experience. She’s helpful and organized, allowing me to focus on my writing while she takes care of the promo. I highly recommend Lola!”
– Jennifer Faye
“I’ve absolutely loved working with Lola for my book blitzes. She’s been very easy to reach, responds quickly, and has kept me informed every step of the process. I ran four book blitzes with four different companies for the same book (they all knew about it), and Lola’s by FAR was the best to work with. Her services are fairly priced and she really knows her stuff. Highly recommended!”
– Andrea Pearson
“What a fantastic service! Lola organised a book blitz for me which created a lot of buzz around my new release. She was professional at all times, responded quickly to emails and was generally a pleasure to work with. I was so happy with all the exposure Lola brought to my book and will definitely be using her services again in the future. Thanks Lola!”
– Hannah Ellis
“Thank you so much to Lola from Lola’s Blog Tours for doing a fantastic job for a few of my clients now. She is my first choice when looking for a company to do a Cover Reveal. She continuously posts links via FB and Twitter, updates her blog page, and stays in communication with me. I don’t know how she does it all! I highly recommend, and will of course, still be using Lola’s Blog Tour Services in the future myself.”
– Pam Labbe, Publicist/Author PA with Aurora Publicity
“As a debut author, I needed the help of a professional to manage my blog tour. Lola’s service went way beyond my expectations. She was professional and responsive. After our first few email exchanges, I knew my book marketing was in the right hands. In my opinion, Lola’s Blog Tour is a great value. Her tour gave Home Field great exposure, which can be hard to come by with a debut book. My first Amazon review was from one of the book blogs she scheduled for my tour. I will definitely use Lola’s again for the rest of the books in my Warriors of the Heart series.”
– Laurie Winter
“Working with Lola for my book tour was really exciting! She was professional, courteous and responsive. I will definitely work with Lola in the future to promote other books! Thank you!”
– EJ Apicello

– Liz Laz
“I’ve worked as a tour partner with Lola for a while now and finally decided to arrange a tour for my own book. Lola is an efficient tour manager and a pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and always happy to answer any questions you might have. Lola is very good at making sure tour hosts keep up with their commitments. (laugh) I can attest to the last from personal experience as well.
If you are looking to book a blog tour, book blitz, cover reveal, or review opp, I highly recommend working with Lola!”
– J Aislynn d’Merricksson
“Lola recently organized a cover reveal for My soon to be released novel. She was great to work with and very professional. Her experience and knowledge of running book promotion services is evident. I highly recommend Lola’s Blog Tours and will be booking with her again in the future. ”
– TC Booth
“Thank you Lola, for the very successful book tour!! From day one working with Lolas Blog Tours was professional and accommodating! As a first time author, and especially with my first book, going on tour can be nerve racking, but Lola made every step easeful and enjoyable!

– Priya Prithviraj
“Being familiar with Lola’s Blog Tours as a blogger first, I knew I was getting an amazing opportunity to have her host my cover reveal. Lola has a solid knowledge of the blogging and publishing worlds, a fantastic crew of bloggers who sign up for many different tours, and professionalism from start to finish. I had great results and engagement with my cover reveal, especially as a new indie author. ”
– Mandy Peterson
“I was going to host my own cover reveal for my debut novel, 23:27, before realizing I needed a little bit of help because while I knew a lot of people I didn’t know everyone and Lola helped reach my book to a wider ranch of an audience than I thought possible. While there were some unavoidable problems on my end Lola was very patient and really helped me as much as she was able to! I plan on using a lot more of her services in the future! ”
– H.L. Roberts

– Candace Robinson

– Deirdre Riordan Hall
“Lola’s Book Tour was everything I wanted and more! Lola helped me spread the word on my debut novel to a wide range of readers and reviewers. This service helped expand my readership while alleviating the burden of self-promotion. This was so easy! Response times were very quick and help was always there when I needed it. The reviewers were great as well. I would rate her five stars if I could and I will recommend her to anybody who is looking for a similar service. Thank you again, Lola’s Blog Tours!”
– Katharine Wibell
“I’m really grateful for the help Lola gave me for the cover reveal of Humanity’s Hope.

Lola was incredibly professional and easy to work with, and I really appreciate that. I would definitely use her services again!”

– Tracy Krimmer
“I used Lola’s Blog Tours for a cover reveal and highly recommend her services. Any information regarding the cover reveal process, materials needed, and deadlines to send material in was communicated succinctly and professionally. I found her very willing to answer questions, which is certainly not my experience with other blog tour hosts. Ultimately, she delivered what was outlined in the service, and did so in a very pleasant and efficient manner. After supplying Lola with the cover, blurb, and excerpt, I really just ‘turned up’ on the day. The perfect tour! And it has really built hype for my next release!”
– Kelly St Clare

“Lola’s Blog Tour helped me with my blog tour for my debut novel, THE BEST PART OF ME. Lola was so easy to work with! She always responded promptly to all my questions and comments, handed out excellent advice, and was very professional at all times! She promoted my novel on social media in the days leading up to the tour and every day during the tour. She has a great relationship with so many book bloggers out there and it shows in their eagerness to sign up for the tours she hosts. I highly recommend Lola and her company’s services to any author, no matter whether they’re debut or established!”
– Jamie Hollins
“I heard about Lola’s Blog Tours from another author who was pleased with their services, so I decided to give her free book cover reveal service a try. I’m glad I did. Lola was really easy to work with, answered all my questions, and provided me with an easy list as to what I needed to give her for the media kit. Plus, she responded in a timely manner to my emails, and kept me informed about where she was in the process of working with other bloggers. I would definitely consider using her book cover reveal service again, or maybe try out one of her other services.”
– Stephanie Flint
“Last year, Lola Blog Tours hosted a tour for my debut novel, “Heir of the Blood King”, with great success. As I ventured into my horror writing journey with the release of a few horror short stories, I contacted her for a cover reveal for my second one, “Dementia Praecox”. The cover reveal was more successful than I could have imagined. Not only did I get a lot of inquiries into my upcoming story, I even had a noticeable boost in sales for my existing ones. I will definitely be requesting Lola’s assistance for book launches and cover reveals in the future. I’ve already recommended her services to all my writing friends. It would be a mistake to pass her by. Give her a chance, she’s awesome.”
– W.O. Cassity
“Lola was professional, kind, a pleasure to work with… I’m thrilled about my tour and am definitely planning on using her services again for book 2 in the series! Thank you!”
– Astrid Arditi

– Kate Foster
“Lola’s blog tour was amazing. She was organized, went out and reached into her contacts, reported back and stayed on top of her business. I highly respect and admire people who take the time to make sure everything runs smoothly. I highly recommend Lola’s blog tours and I will definitely become a repeat customer.”
– Victoria Pinder
“I did a lot of research and asked a lot of questions before booking my book blitz tour. Lola’s book blitz tour made it all so simple. She handled everything. Lola was responsive to all my questions and concerns. She was articulate, super helpful and overall did a great job putting together the book blitz tour. It’s not easy figuring out how to reach your readers, but Lola made it less stressful for a new author like myself. Thanks again for setting up all the tour stops! Your organizational skills and efficiency was much appreciated. You were so encouraging and incredibly diligent and professional. You guided me through the process every step of the way and made it an effortless, enjoyable experience. Thank you!!!”
– Meena Jelks
“I’ve already written a testimonial as an author, but I’d like to add one as a blogger.
First off, everything’s always very tidy, the html, the range of teasers to select, the excerpts, and the timing. It’s very low stress as a blogger. You could, if you prefer, simply plug in the html and call it done, but you can also pick from a range of post types and it’s always fun.
Second, Lola and the authors she provides tours for tend to promote and interact with my blog on posting day, and sometimes once more a day or so later. This drives tons of traffic to my site, which, if you’re a blogger, you know is really exciting.
Finally, the tours themselves are great ways to discover new authors and other blogs. And it’s super easy to browse available tours, cover reveals and review opportunities on Lola’s page. And there are so many you could easily flesh out your review blog with other book related content.
So really, the best thing is that hosting the tours for Lola is that they are stress free, fun, and great for drawing some views.”
– Patricia, Blogger at I Read Too Much!
“This was my first attempt at promoting one of my new titles and I couldn’t be more thrilled with Lola’s work and the results I’ve seen from this tour. Lola is friendly, professional, and dedicated to promoting my book, posting several unique tweets a week instead of just coping the same thing each time like I’ve seen other blog tour services do. During release week, my book reached #588 in the overall Amazon store, which is a record for me, and it’s stayed there for the entire week of the tour. I can only assume these great ranks are because of the efforts of Lola and her tour hosts. I’m very pleased with this service and I’ll be back for all of my future books!”
– Amy Sparling
“Fast, efficient, stress-free and professional. I found Lola’s Blog Tours extremely easy to work with, and nothing was too much trouble for her to take care of. Lola went above and beyond my expectations and provided a fantastic service, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and I’ll certainly be back.”
– Tracey Alvarez
“Lola was amazing during the cover reveal! More bloggers signed up than I expected, and her posts about my book really helped me gain more followers. Without her, the cover reveal for my book wouldn’t have been such a success. I can’t thank her enough.”
– Clarisse David
“Lola not only put together a great tour but was involved from day one with every blog. She ran social media 2-3 times a day which made my book that more noticeable and I received several retweets and followers. Now, I have hired Lola’s services for reviews and I am receiving even more recognition. Without question I will have Lola take all my books on tour! Thank you Lola, you rock!”
– Lee DuCote
“Working with Lola’s Blog Tours to promote “The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses” (the first book in The Urban Boys series) has been a great experience. Lola is very professional, easy to work with, and supportive. Her promotional activity resulted in increased interest from readers and more social media followers. I look forward to working with her again for the promotion of the forthcoming books in The Urban Boys series. Thank you, Lola!”
– K.N. Smith, author of The Urban Boys
“Lola’s Blog Tours was a great experience for me. Lola was professional, quick to respond, and made my cover reveal a success. I highly recommend her!”
– Ginna Moran, author of Tainted
“I had never done a cover reveal event before, but the buzz that Lola and other bloggers have created was so worth it! I have reached people who would have otherwise not heard of my book, and I’m hoping (fingers crossed) that some will actually be interested in reading it.
Lola is an uber-professional, fast, friendly and a fountain of knowledge. She is also very patient, and has never complained of the crazy amount of questions from nervous newbie me.
I will use her services again for sure.”
– Caroline Cairn, author of Forever and One Week
“I absolutely loved working with Lola’s Blog Tours. With my crazy work schedule and a crashing computer, she was pleasant, organized, and an absolute lifesaver before, during, and after my cover reveal. I sing her praises and would recommend her to other authors wanting to use her services. Look forward to working with her in the future!”
– Christina Channelle, author of Never Letting Go
“Lola was very professional and organized. I enjoyed working with her and was pleased with the new reviews provided for my book.”
– CJ Carmichael, author of A Bramble House Christmas and The Twisted Cedars Mysteries series
“This was the 2nd cover reveal that Lola has organized for me, and I was super pleased with the results. She always replies to my e-mails in a timely manner and sends out materials in plenty of time so bloggers aren’t rushed to post. I usually have a decent turnout of bloggers as well, so I’ve always been pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Lola’s services!”
– Nikki Godwin, author of Cross me off Your List and Crash Landing
“Lola’s Blog Tours were great in organising my cover reveal. I loved being able to relax whilst the reveal was organised. The volume of posts about my book over the social networking sites and blogs was a testament to how hard Lola worked, and the outcome of the event was much greater than I’d anticipated. I will definitely be using Lola’s Blog Tours again.”
– Jenna Lyn Field, author of Trees of Life
“As a growing indie pub, BookFish Books LLC is always looking for ways to get the word out about our authors and their stories. We so happened upon Lola and her amazing PR company and decided to reach out to her in regards to her services. She was friendly and professional, had a wide reach of bloggers, and did everything in her power to make sure the cover reveal she hosted for us was a success. We’re looking forward to working with her more in the future and highly recommend her services.”
– BookFish Books LLC, Publisher of A Shot of Bourbon
“Lola organized the Cover Reveal and Giveaway for my second novel, ‘When Lucifer Met Calamity’.
I had a very positive experience. She gave me good advice and answered all my questions during the planning and organizing period of the Cover Reveal. The reveal itself went over very smoothly. The subscriber-ship on my blog increased. And it also caused a stir on my Goodreads dashboard, both my Facebook pages, and my pinterest profile. Cover Reveal was definitely worth it. I would recommend the service for all Indie or self-published authors. I think the service is good for every author, but I mention Indies and self-published writers in particular because for us good promotion/marketing and word-of-mouth buzz is harder to come by. Doing a Cover Reveal through Lola’s Blog Tours is a great way to promote your book and increase awareness and recognition. ”
– D. Alyce Domain, author of When Lucifer Met Calamity
“Lola’s Blog Tours organized a cover reveal and giveaway for the cover of my book, Avalee and the Dragon.
I must say, I’m extremely impressed, particularly since the cover reveals are a free service. Signing up via webform was easy, and Lola responded quickly and with a well organized list of items and options for the cover reveal. I also liked how she clearly shows how long she’d likely need to prepare for each type of service, which would be super helpful for planning a book roll out or promotion.
As for the cover reveal itself, more blogs than I’d expected signed up and participated, and the buzz and exposure from the giveaway resulted in a gratifying number of Twitter followers, Google+ adds, and Facebook likes. Here’s why I think it went off so well. Lola tweeted the sign up leading up to the cover reveal on a regular basis, keeping me posted on the number of blogs participating. I love how the cover reveal page listed all those blogs with links so I could drop by and see them all myself and how she kept those organized so I could see which ones hadn’t yet.
During the tour, she tweeted the posts for each of the blogs throughout the cover reveal period, which really made it fun since I was watching my Twitter feed explode with shares and well wishes. I also took Lola up on her offer to set up the Rafflecopter giveaway (not having much luck doing that myself in the past). I’m pretty sure a majority of the social media activity around the reveal was due to how she set it up. I’m looking forward to seeing who won!
Overall, it went over extremely well and I’d totally do it again. I gave Lola everything she suggested for the cover reveal and agreed to do the giveaway, both of which I believe are key to getting the most out of a cover reveal with Lola.”
– Patricia Hamill, author of Avalee and the Dragon
“I had a great experience with Lola’s Blog Tours. The communication was great and she kept me informed every step of the way. I appreciated how she was able to help me promote my Landry’s True Colors Series and how she stayed on top of everything. I would highly recommend using Lola’s Blog Tours.”
– Krysten Lindsay Hager, author of the Landry’s True Colors Series and the Star Series
“Lola was super professional. Always advertised and follow up with me. And I received my best reviews from her tour! My book was a YA light Sci-fi. Thank you, Lola!”
– Sheena Snow, author of Sparked
“This was my first blog tour and Lola made it really easy and stress-free. She is quick to respond to questions and very efficient. I highly recommend her.”
– Kathleen Montemayor, author of The Spirit Chaser
“Lola is absolutely awesome! She is so organized, knowledgeable, and supportive–she’s with you every step of the way from pre-tour activities to publicizing posts during the tour to helping with after-tour odds and ends. She is always accessible and follows through immediately on every question and concern. She is also a joy as a person, and I’m looking forward to staying in touch. ”
– Paula Berinstein, author of The Amanda Lester series
“Exposure is a funny thing–you can’t really measure the effectiveness of something like a book blitz right away. What I can measure is the excellent communication, clarity, and assistance provided by Lola. If you are looking for someone to provide the voodoo of marketing for you, Lola is fantastic.”
– Paul Neslusan, author of The Depths and Maiden of Secrets
“We liked our experience with her, and she always replied to emails when we had questions, and we tried to do the same in return =)”
– GL Tomas, author of The Mark of Noba
“Lola has hosted three of my book blitz and book tours. She’s always quick to respond, professional, knowledgeable, and well organized. I totally trust her in every step of the process. I will continue to use her services, and fully recommend her to anyone who wants to promote a book through social media. ”
– Roe Valentine, author of Love Easy and Love Hard and Little Death
“Lola was fantastic! She answered all my questions and was always so helpful. I highly recommend her and would use her services again. I used her for my first Christian YA novel, Love, Defined and I walked away with some much needed contacts, reviews and an eye opening experience about marketing. I feel I should also give her some credit her for putting me on the #1 Best Sellers – Amazon kindle edition – for my Christian YA/Teens Values category. Though it was brief, I am still wearing the high of even being on the top 10 and being the #1 New Release for my category.
I have a lot of family and friends but during the tour, I opened my book to a wider audience and she helped me cast the net. Speaking of which, I was so impressed by her and the books and authors that I would never come across that I decided to even join and be a blog host for Lola. I’m sure I can speak for a lot of authors that has used, and her say that she’s amazing! You should check out her services!”
– Leila Tualla, author of Love, Defined
“Lola organized a cover reveal for my novella, “Tight Laced,” the debut book in my Dragon Duchess series.
Her generosity and organization were top notch, and the exposure has led to many new followers on my social media accounts, and has created a wonderful base for subsequent marketing.
I highly recommend Lola’s Blog Tours!”
– Roxy Soulé, author of Tight Laces
“I was very impressed by Lola’s professionalism and attention to detail. I highly recommend her services to anyone requiring a tour provider.”
– Joanne Guidoccio, author of The Coming of Arabella

– Marc Hirsch, author of Hard Case
“Lola made the cover reveal for my book a stress free and fun event. I enjoyed seeing the posts on the different blogs and sharing tweets and facebook posts. Keep up the good work, Lola!”

– Cindy Flores Martinez, Author of Mail-Order Groom
“Engaging Lola’s for my Wilderhark Tales cover reveal tour was blessedly hassle-free. The service was prompt and professional, successfully extending my visibility reach beyond what I’m generally able to do on my own. In a situation where I needed to focus my time and energy elsewhere, getting to leave a tour’s organization in someone else’s capable hands was a pleasant and necessary change of pace for me!”
– Danielle E Shipley, author of The Wilderhark series
“It was a pleasure working with Lola because she communicated efficiently and often. I never had to wonder where my blog tour stood, who had signed up, or what else I needed to send Lola. She facilitated the whole thing, and I hardly had to lift a finger! Wonderful!”
– Rori Shay, Author of the Elected Trilogy.
“So far I’ve only worked with one other blog tour service and I didn’t have nearly as good an experience as I’ve had working with Lola’s Blog Tours! The contrast in communication, in keeping me updated throughout the process was vast. Lola also did a much better job of taking the time to promote each tour stop, used quotes to promote the reviews as they came in, and managed the bookings very efficiently. She did a great job providing a thorough overview of the tour and administering the giveaway.
If you’re looking for an attentive tour organizer who doesn’t make you feel like just another author on the assembly line—Lola’s your girl!”
– Millenia Black, Bestselling Author of The Great Pretender and Raindrops on Roses
“The moment I shared the vision of the Tara Nikkel books with Lola, I knew I had found the perfect person to help spread the word about my books. Lola is a workhorse and a true professional. If I had to highlight one special thing about her services, it is that she takes the time to understand your project and identify the right bloggers for your source material. Her blog tours are an absolute necessity for anyone serious about connecting with real readers and her tours will be a part of my releases for a long time.”
– R.A. Sapp, author of the Tara Nikkel series
“Lola organised a Book Blitz for me to help with the launch of my third book. Her service was professional and always courteous and she kept me up to date as the tour proceeded. The presentation of my books and the tour banner was perfect. The exposure I got from the tour was great – it gave my other books a sales boost as well. I highly recommend Lola’s Blog Tours.”
– Jennifer Collin, author of the Evans Trilogy.
“Lola did a fantastic job with my cover reveal. She’s professional, hard-working and generous, making an effort to spread the word via social media both before and during the event. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently and the event was great exposure for my book. Lola is genuinely passionate about the books she promotes – as an author, I couldn’t ask for better!”
– Emma L Adams, author of Adamant
“The book blitz I booked with Lola’s Blog Tours was really great and I’ll definitely do it again in a few months time.
I’ve gained several new followers across GoodReads, Twitter and Facebook and it was great to have other places to link to on social media and see my book mentioned on different websites.”
– L.E. May, author of Inspired by Night
“If you are looking for a way to spread the word about your book and gain new readers, Lola’s Blog Tours is the answer. I have tried numerous marketing strategies from giveaways to mass email services like Ereader News Today, but the book blitz Lola organized for me has been the most successful by far. Lola is highly professional, well organized and prompt. Whenever I contacted her, she responded quickly and never made me feel like I was asking too many questions. (And trust me, I asked a lot!) Not only did she answer questions about all things related to the book blitz itself, but she also provided me with a lot of other unrelated information and advice. I definitely plan on working with Lola in the future.”
– K.J. Farnham, auhtor of Click Date Repeat
“I engaged Lola to organize the Blog Tour for my debut novel, True Calling. As a novice, I was rather clueless on the whole process, but I couldn’t have been in better hands. Lola explained everything very clearly, and managed the complete life-cycle from start to finish. She proved herself to be extremely knowledgeable, diligent and efficient. Lola is a consummate professional who goes above and beyond to provide a top-class service to Authors. I’m delighted with the number of bloggers who signed up for the tour, the quality of posts, and the excellent reviews I received from some of the participants. It definitely generated exposure and sales, and the service is excellent value. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lola for any book-related publicity, and I’ve already booked her services for the next book in my YA series.”
– Siobhan Davis, Author of True Calling
“I’ve never done a blog tour and, quite honestly, the thought of putting one together was overwhelming. I am sooo grateful a friend recommended Lola’s Blog Tours. She made it easy and, more importantly, she made it effective. My book release got the attention I was looking for.”
– Tony Bertauski, author of Flury
“Working with Lola’s Blog Tours was fabulous. She has so many great connections, and worked to get our cover reveal out there effectively and on short notice. With her help, navigating the blogosphere is easy.”
– Suzie Townsend, agent at New Leaf Literary and Media
“Ms. Lola, hosted my blog book tour and I was impressed with how efficient she was. It was my first tour and I didn’t know what to expect. Lola, explained everything and made the process easy. During the tour I got a lot of feedback, fans, and people adding my book to their reading lists. The tour was definitely the best advertisement tool I have used. I recommend all authors to use her for a tour, or one of her other services. She also gives great advice. Thanks, again Lola. I will be using again you for another tour when my next book comes out next fall.”
– B Truly, author of The Sonar series
“From the very beginning, Lola was very professional and consistent. She did everything she said she would in a timely fashion, even before I had time to ask question in some cases, and ran a very professional tour. I highly recommend Lola’s Blog Tours! She is well worth the money!”
– Jacqueline Patricks, author of Fairytale Apocalypse, Destiny of the Queen and The Bro Code
“It was GREAT to work with Lola on my YA/MG novel’s first blog tour celebrating its release. She is very creative, patient and organized, and because she blogs herself she has an interesting international network of writers, readers, and book lovers who sign on to support an author’s publication. She was super helpful for me as a new writer, explaining and following up the best ways to maximize our project together. And I got some excellent posts, strong reviews, and much-needed exposure. Thanks, Lola!”
– K.V. Flynn, author of On the Move

The entire experience was fantastic, and I would highly recommend her services for reveals and blog tours.”
– Prashant Pinge, author of Sceadu
“Lola’s Blog Tours is an INCREDIBLE service. She made my book launch easy, fun, and helped me get a huge amount of exposure amongst readers and the blogosphere. She’s professional, extremely well-organized, and a great communicator. I’d highly recommend Lola’s Blog Tours to any author looking to release a new book, or even to gain added exposure to an existing book!”

Lola did a stellar job on my blog tours increasing exposure for my work! She’s efficient, organized, accessible, professional – making the promo circuit so much easier to navigate as she gathered and distributed all the materials. What an awesome time saver, at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend Lola and intend to enlist her help with future book promotion.
-Catherine Mann, USA Today bestselling and RITA Award winning author
Lola of Lola’s Blog Tours is my PR go-to gal. Not only did she put together a professional blog tour for the first two books of my Nogiku Series, she handled all of the correspondence with bloggers and updated me daily. I never felt out-of-the-loop. It was such a great experience that I hired her for a cover reveal as well, which she handled easily and efficiently. She was always personable and sweet to me and the bloggers who participated which left me feeling happy and proud that I had hired her once more. I will be using Lola’s Blog Tours from here on out! And I have not hesitated to recommend her to several other authors as well.
– SJ Pajonas, author of the Nogiku series and Face Time
These days there is a large number of entities advertising their willingness to host/run book tours at any given time for authors looking to market their novel(s). And these companies come in every shape and size imaginable! So as an author, it can be quite overwhelming picking which might be the best fit for our works of art.
Well, once I found out that Lola had entered the arena, I knew I had to give her services a try. And… I was satisfied beyond belief. Lola has the strength of a reputable business partner AND the understanding, care, and passion a true lover of all things bookish should possess. She is definitely an asset in the large community of book touring peeps. I highly recommend Lola and her blog touring company, but then again, I also want to keep her all to myself!!
– Amy Joy Lutchen, author of the Renhala series
Lola’s Blog Tours is every author’s answer to getting targeted, high exposure, professional book promotion. Her tours are highly organized and produce amazing results in terms of generating both blogger and reader enthusiasm for your books. Her blog tours are customized and tailored to your needs, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with this experience. I will definitely use Lola’s Blog Tours for future book releases.
– Karen Rock, YA and Adult Contemporary author for Spencer Hill Press and Harlequin Heartwarming.
Lolas Blog Tours is so professional and efficient! She thought of things that I wouldn’t have and really helped us manage the deadlines to pull the tour together. No detail was overlooked! Working with Lolita is like having an extra member on your promo team.
– Joanne Rock, international bestselling romance author
Lola ran my Book Blitz without a hitch, and as a result I saw lots of sales and exposure to new blogs and readers. As an author, I highly recommend her services.
– Ripley Patton, author of the PSS Chronicles series
Lola did an excellent job with my blog tour. Not only did she handle everything very professionally and efficiently, but she put forth and effort to be more than the cold detached business person who you may encounter with some of the bigger blog tour companies. Lola is honest, warm, friendly, and genuine. I found it very easy to talk to her, and I can definitely say I’ve finished out my blog tour with a new friend now.
Also, every time a blogger posted, she was very diligent about tweeting about it. When I finished the tour, she set up a page for me that included an updated blog tour list with all the stops linking to the Destiny Blog tour post. In addition, her price was very good for the amount of bloggers she allowed.
Overall, I had a great experience, and I would recommend Lola’s Blog Tour to anyone looking for more exposure for their books.
– Cindy Ray Hale, author of Destiny
I had a great experience working with Lola’s Blog Tours. It was fast to sign up with and I love it when the tours are simple to set up and when the tour provider has all the info together when they send it to us hosts. Lola did all that. It makes posting so much easier. I’d definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a tour provider.
