Good morning, bibliophiles! Today’s post is directed to both book bloggers and authors with blogs. I’m here to tell you about the PERMANENT incentive program we are offering beginning December 1st!
The success of a company like Pure Textuality PR is largely owed to the awesome bloggers and authors who participate in our marketing campaigns. These campaigns can range from traditional blog tours to month-long review drives. We cannot possibly thank you all enough for all the hard work you put in to help us make the books we promote a success. As a way of saying thanks, beginning with a handful of our campaigns in the month of November, we started offering various incentive giveaways with our events, and going forward, we will be doing this with ALL of our events.
Special Note to Authors
When booking an event, we pay close attention to the demographic we are reaching out to. Due to this, our events welcome authors to sign their own blogs up to participate as well. This helps drive traffic to the author’s website, and it also helps cross-promote the touring title with the author’s built-in audience. So, if you’re an author, please know that you are not excluded from the incentive giveaway program.
We actually have a few different options for the monthly incentive giveaways. And any author or blogger who fits the entry criteria is entered for that giveaway. This means that depending on your participation, you could possibly be entered into all of our giveaways each month.
Giveaway Option I – PTPR Blogger Giveaway
For all bloggers and authors who are signed up on our list to receive booking announcement emails, you will automatically be entered on the first of each month to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card (open internationally). That’s it. You just have to be signed up as a PTPR blogger and you’re entered without doing anything further.
Giveaway Option II – PTPR Master List Bloggers
For all bloggers and authors who opt to be on our “auto add” list, you will automatically be entered on the first of each month to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card (open internationally). This list is bloggers or authors who select to be automatically added to any *promotional* event (this excludes review requests as no one wants to be forced to read a book they’re not interested in).

Giveaway Option III – Reviewer Giveaway
We’ve started putting together review drives as part of our offerings. This is a month-long window in which bloggers or authors can sign up to review a title. When the review drive starts, all participating bloggers and authors are supplied with a Rafflecopter link to submit the URL for their review. At the end of the review drive, Pure Textuality PR staff chooses a winner at random via Rafflecopter to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card (open internationally). Content of the review, good or bad, does not impact your chances of winning the giveaway as the winners are picked at random by the Rafflecopter widget. Once a winner has been chosen, their link is verified as a valid link. If the review link isn’t valid, the entry is discarded and a new winner is chosen.
Giveaway Option IV – Participant Giveaway
We very often receive sign ups for events from bloggers or authors who choose not to be added to our list of those we contact when we have an event to book. Although they are not PTPR Bloggers, we still want to thank them for all their hard work. All of the participating bloggers and authors for all of our events each month will be compiled into one giveaway. Each event you participate in earns you one entry. This means the more you participate in, the more entries you will have. On the first of each month, we will pick one blogger (or author) from all of our participating bloggers to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card (open internationally).
All of this information will be added to the Pure Textuality PR website today, and any bloggers or authors who are currently signed up are automatically grandfathered in to the December 1st giveaways.
From all of us here at Pure Textuality PR, we genuinely hope you understand how much your hard works means to us and we can’t wait to see you all on future events!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
