Testimonials

Karen Hopkins

“Kismet has done several blog tours for my YA Temptation series and the results have always been outstanding! My social media followers, reviews and actual sales increased dramatically with each tour and Danny and Jenny’s attention to detail, professionalism and ability to line up top notch bloggers was the reason. I’ve found that Kismet’s blog tours are one of the best ways to promote my books. I would highly recommend Kismet for any authors, especially newcomers wishing to build an audience.”

“Danny and Jenny worked wonders to get the word out for me – with serious results, like a 30% increase in Facebook likes and 119% more Goodreads fans. Their art for the tour was beautiful, their communication was top-notch, and they were simply a no-hassle, no-drama pleasure to work with. Just the kind of expertise you need during the madness of a book launch.”

How much do I love Heather and Danny from Kismet Book Tours? Um, sooooo much. They made my life so much easier during my three-week long blog tour. They sent me reminder emails, they organized things into bite-sized chunks for me to manage, they arranged awesome blog appearances… I can’t say enough great things about them. I think the most telling thing I can tell you is that I will be using them again—I’m already setting up a time to discuss another project. They’re just that awesome! I highly recommend them.

Kismet was right on top of everything! Kept track of posts, when all was due, put up every link so fast it was amazing…Organization was outstanding, [Heather and Danny] were always quick to answer/respond to everything. In addition, [they] both were so enthusiastic for all my posts and the tour itself, that it made me really look forward to it — and I was not disappointed. I got almost 50% more twitter followers than I had when the tour started which was great!

Kismet provided a smooth, professional tour with excellent tour stops. They were quick to respond to my emails, and very sensitive to my questions and concerns. I’m so glad I booked my tour with them, and I’ll be returning with the other two books in the series.

I had a wonderful time touring with Kismet Book Touring and wouldn’t hesitate to book another tour with them or recommend them to anyone wanting a fun and quality blog tour. Danny and Heather are very professional, great to work with and ran my tour like a well oiled machine.

Warning: rave review coming: Daniela and Heather are fantastic! They’re enthusiastic, have creative, wonderful ideas and are a absolute pleasure to work with. Their attention to detail is unrivaled, and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to any author.

“I would be happy to recommend Kismet to any author. I was so impressed with [their] attention to detail. Everything from the look of the gel skins for the Kindles, to the pieces of the “Letter Never Sent”, to the beauty of [the] site itself were so impressive. The whole look of it was just classy.

Lastly, I was so happy how just on it [Daniela and Heather] both were. This may have been [their] first tour, but [they] behaved like seasoned professionals.”

Blog tours are the most fun and effective way to let people know about your books, but the behind-the-scenes work can be stressful and time-consuming. I know I won’t self-organize my own blog tour again! Heather and Danny bring a tremendous enthusiasm for books and high-quality, professional work at indie-friendly prices.

Author of The Haunted E-Book (January 2011) and Jenny Pox (July 2009)

 

“These ladies are fantastic. Their love of books is second to none, the contests they run are intriguing and fun, and they are eloquent and concise in their opinions. If there is anyone’s hands I’d place the livelihood of my own work, it’s them.”

-Robert J. Duperre
Author of The Fall (April 2010) and Dead of Winter (December 2010)
