Testimonial from Angelique Jurd – Daisy, Yellow – Book Blast

As a new author on the indie scene, getting exposure is always a challenge.  For the release of my novel, Daisy Yellow (Book 1 of Paw Prints), I engaged the Gay Book Promotions team for a three day Book Blast with reviews. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made – I was able to reach more potential readers and reviewers than I have before and the brand exposure for my work has been invaluable.

The package was very reasonably priced, Lily was professional and helpful (I’m an insecure, neurotic wee soul but it didn’t bother her at all), and the result was better than I hoped for.

I highly recommend Gay Book Promotions to any writers looking to grow their brand and reach new readers.

Testimonial from Quin and Perin – Meik and Sebastian – Obsessed – Review Tour

Quin and I are new to the genre so it does help to have Lily by our side. We booked a 3 day promotion and certainly noticed an increase in sales, twitter followers and newsletter sign ups. She is very kind, responds quickly and answered any questions we had with uttermost patience. I am very grateful for her advice. Thank you!

Testimonial from A.L.Simpson – Broken Bastard – Book Blast with Reviews

Gay Book Promotions recently conducted a book blast tour for my book – Broken Bastard. Lily, who I liaised with, kept me well-informed and up to date. I would not hesitate to recommend their services – in fact I already have. Consider me a very satisfied customer and thank you, Gay Book Promotions and the blogs who support you.

I used Gay Book Promotions for a Book Blast and Review tour recently and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. So professionally done! And what spectacular results! Wonderful coverage in some of the best blogs around and a slew of glowing reviews! I will be using them again… and again!

Testimonial from Sarah Havan – Expecting – Release Blitz with ARC Reviews

I’m so bad at marketing my books and trying to get them out there that I thought I’d seek some help from Gay Book Promotions, and I’m so happy I did. The book blast/review tour connected me with lovely bloggers and reviewers. I’m very satisfied with the results. I love getting the write up on blogs, and reviews on Goodreads, but most of all, the Amazon reviews. Those help so much! Book two is due soon, and I’ll be going right back to Gay Book Promotions.

Testimonial from Michael War – Under Five – Cover Reveal and Blog Tour

I am so pleased that I found Gay Book Promotions. Marketing myself has always been something of a mystery to me, but Lily made the process easy to understand and was always on hand to answer all my questions. I used Gay Book Promotions for a Cover Reveal, and based on my wonderful experience, I chose them to orchestrate my first ever blog tour. The blog tour exceeded my expectations, with a flurry of reviews, blog posts, guest posts, and interviews filling the web with my book. I will definitely use Lily and Gay Book Promotions for all my upcoming releases.

UNDER FIVE BLURB 2

Testimonial from Jeanne St. James – Rip Cord – Book Blast

I used Gay Book Promotions for a rerelease of my m/m sports romance, Rip Cord. Between doing this release blitz and just my newsletter, my book hit #1 on Amazon in Gay Erotica. I was thrilled. I already have my second release blitz scheduled with Lily. I’ve used quite a few promotion companies in the past and I’ve had the best response with hers. I don’t need a ton of blogs, I need QUALITY blogs where my book isn’t buried with other blitzes. I will be using her service whenever I release a LGBTQ book for either of my pen names! I highly recommend her services. Thanks for doing such a great job, Lily!

Testimonial from Eric Huffbind – The Rescuer – Blog Tour

I had completed some major revisions, on my manuscript, for my debut novel, “The Rescuer,” and wanted to get some publicity going on it. When you’re a brand new novelist on a very crowded block, you want all the help possible to get the word out that you can receive. Never having done a blog tour, and not wanting to deal with the headache of organizing it myself, I discovered Gay Book Promotions and Lily Blunt. All I can say is “Thank God” I did! Lily’s customer service was simply stellar, and her speed in putting together a ten-day tour was remarkable. I can’t say enough good things about Gay Book Promotions. So, if you’re considering using services for promotion of your book, stop looking, because you have already found what you have been looking for with Gay Book Promotions. And if all of that wasn’t enough, you’ll find Lily is an absolute joy to work with. She’s incredibly warm, kind, and friendly beyond compare.

Testimonial from Bryce Winters – Rising Tide – Release Blitz

I stumbled across GBP when another author mentioned them in passing and, boy, was I happy to be in the right place at the right time! With the release of my book scheduled in two weeks, I contacted them right away, though their lead time requested three. Lily replied right away and got the ball rolling, working hard to get me as much exposure as possible. I was very impressed with GBP’s professionalism, responsiveness, and support. They really helped get my book the visibility it deserved! I will definitely be using them again!”

RISING TIDE BLURB 2

Testimonial from Sean Kerr – Dead Camp – Release Blitz

I was lucky enough to come across Gay Book Promotions and Lily on Facebook, and I am so very relieved that I did! I was about to release the last book in my series, and I really wanted it to go out with a bang. Thanks to Lily and Gay Book Promotions, that is exactly what happened and more! The thought of doing such a large scale release blitz filled me with horror, but Lily was able to put everything in place and organise the event with the utmost professionalism and care. Lily loves this genre, and it shows, because she handled my release blitz with so much love and attention to detail, and it was a huge success. Never before have my books made such a splash as they did because of Lily and Gay Book Promotions. I HIGHLY advice you to use her remarkable service, and I will certainly be booking more events with this wonderful woman.

Testimonial from Colette Davison – Why I Need You – Release Blitz

Lily at Gay Book Promotions has organised two blog tours for me. She is lovely to work with: organised, cheerful and communicative and her tours are very reasonably priced. She works with a vast number of active bloggers, which resulted in two very successful tours. I highly recommend Lily’s services and I won’t hesitate to work with her again.

WHY I NEED YOU

Testimonial from Londra Laine – Forever With You – Release Blitz

I am SO fortunate to have found Gay Book Promotions and Lily before the release blitz of my debut gay romance, Forever With You. I’d planned to manage promotions myself but realized, a little late in the game I might add, that I was in WAY over my head. I sent an email then – BAM – Lily and Gay Book Promotions to the rescue! She was responsive, organized, professional and efficient. She made things incredibly easy and clear for me and was such a pleasure to work with. I mean, she just went above and beyond and I could tell that she really enjoys and takes pride in what she does. I can honestly say that my release would not have been the success that it was had I not worked with her. I never once had to follow up with her about anything that was promised in the package; she was always proactive about making sure I received all the deliverables. Lily and Gay Book Promotions have a customer for life in me and I highly recommend that you engage her services for your next release!

Testimonial from Joel Craig – Journey to Gaytopia – Release Blitz and Blog Tour

Gay Book Promotions were really effective in getting the word out on my book by Twitter and Facebook. I received three Amazon reviews for my book and with the book blog my book was exposed to people who may never have seen my book otherwise. And Gay Book Promotions set up the Rafflecopter giveaway as well. The rates were reasonable and Lily was very prompt in returning my emails if I had questions. Thanks again, Lily.

As an author, I’ve seen several places that said they would promote your book. I was lucky enough to find Lily G. Blunt. She is professional, kind and works her tail off for you. Check out her site. I know I will always use her and if I have to wait in line so be it. I want all of us to have the support we need. Because each and every one of us have poured our hearts out to create something important to us.

Testimonial from L.M. Brown – Holographic Havoc Release Blitz

I have just used Gay Book Promotions for my book and have been delighted with the service. Everything ran smoothly and I was kept fully informed as to how things were progressing on the run up to the tour.  I was provided with links to all the tour stops in one easy to access place which saved me lots of time.  I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that, especially since the tour ended up colliding with first round edits on my next release!  Great value for money and I am definitely going to use the service again.

Testimonial from L.M. Somerton – The Wyverns Series Review Tour

Gay Book Promotions did a wonderful job on my series tour – not the easiest thing to accomplish with five books to cover! The extra work put in on social media promotion saved me so much time and all the information I needed was provided quickly and clearly. A great value, professional service that I’ll definitely be using again.

Testimonial from A.E. Ryecart – Bernie Release Blitz

This was the first time I’d used Gay Book Promotions for a new release book blast, and I was very impressed by the service provided. Working with Lily was straight forward, friendly, professional and hassle-free. From the word go, I plagued Lily with questions, and she got back to me quickly with clear answers – vital for this author who’s not always as organised as she could be! I was never left in any doubt about who had signed up, and for what, and I appreciated that she was proactive in chasing up reviewers, where needed, on my behalf.

A seamless, and professional service, at a reasonable rate. I recommend Gay Book Promotions unreservedly.

Testimonial from Kendel Duncan – Blackbird Fly Home Book Blast

This being my first experience using a promotional service, I couldn’t be more pleased with Gay Book Promotions. In the past I had been handling the promos myself. After the ease, competency and organization shown to me by Lily, I guarantee I will never be doing my own promos again but instead turning them over to the extremely capable hands of Gay Book Promotions. ‘Where have you been all my life’ is the first thought that pops into my head now when thinking of Lily. ‘Thank goodness you’re here’ is a quick second.

I highly recommend this wonderful service.

Testimonial from L.C. Davis – A Cowboy for Caleb Release Blitz and Blog Tour

I really cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Gay Book Promotions for my latest book. From planning the new release tour to creating promotional banners, contacting bloggers, giveaway coordination, and wrapping up the tour, Lily G. Blunt went above and beyond in making A Cowboy for Caleb’s release a success. Throughout the tour, she maintained excellent communication and it’s clear that she is not only knowledgeable about the book tour process but passionate about what she does as well!

I’ve never had such an impressive turnout of incredible bloggers, and this was by far my most stress-free release day yet because of the excellent services provided by Gay Book Promotions! I highly recommend them to any other authors looking to streamline the promo process (which we all know can be a lot to manage on your own) and will be staying with them for all my future releases as well. Thank you Lily for all the hard work and planning!

Testimonial from Helen Juliet – Without a Compass  Release Blitz

“Gay Book Promotions was absolutely fabulous for the release of my latest book Without a Compass. Lily was hard working and engaged right from the very start. She did an excellent job of rustling up blogs and ARC readers. Once the book went live I was impressed at her dedication to keep the visibility of my book up by not only promoting the buy links, but taking the time to spread around all the four and fives star reviews I got. She made sure I was seen everywhere! She also put me in touch with an ARC reader who spotted a couple of typos, and then made a lovely banner with a dozen or so quotes from positive reviews. The rafflecopter giveaway was a great success too. I have already recommended Gay Book Promotions to other authors, and will continue to do so as well as using them again myself for my next release! Thank you Lily and team for all your efforts, they were sincerely appreciated.”

Testimonial from F.E. Feeley Jr. – When Heaven Strikes Blog Tour

“Lily G. Blunt’s (Gay Book Promotions) blog tour was the best experience of my writing career. When I hired her, she immediately took to finding reviewers and stops for my latest novel. She helped me put together a rafflecopter giveaway, corresponded with me concerning a publishing error, sent me questionnaires to fill out, acted as a go between for other sites’ information, and stayed with me during the entire process. I would, and have, recommended her highly.

Top notch.”

Testimonial from V.L. Moon and J.T. Cheyanne – The Crimson Nights Saga Tour

“I approached Gay Book Promotions after our usual tour operator had to pull out. It was very short notice as our book had just been released.

Gay Book Promotions helped us by creating a viable blog tour full of the most amazing bloggers. Question sheets along with interview questions were all part of the package making it easier to produce something different for each stop on the tour.

The result was a well-organized blog tour with stated dates and lots of promotion, not only by Gay Book Promotions, but the bloggers as well as ourselves.

One thing I liked was their organization skills; they made themselves readily available to answer any queries or concerns.

I found the experience on the whole, most enjoyable, I would recommend Book Promotions to any Author looking for a service that offers the personal touch while maintaining a professional outlook and approach to their customers.

Well done Gay Book Promotions. We will be using you again real soon.”
