Authors: Find out how damppebbles blog tours can help promote your book

dpbt 2

Are you an author looking to promote your book? Confused about blog tours, blog blitzes and blog blasts? Do you know only a handful of bloggers and really don’t have time to get something organised?

(After all, there are characters to flesh out, plots to twist and bucketfuls of suspense to build!)

damppebbles blog tours is an independent blog tour company headed up by a book blogger with nearly five years experience in the book blogging world and many years of high-level administrative experience in different industries.  Since starting damppebbles blog tours I have worked with Transworld Books, Fahrenheit Press, Bloodhound Books, Thomas & Mercer and Raven Books (these last two were via the brilliant publicist Emma Finnigan).  I have also worked with Sarah Ward (Faber & Faber), June Taylor, Mary-Jane Riley (both published by Killer Reads), B.E. Jones (Constable – Little, Brown) and indie authors Rachel Amphlett, Rebecca Bradley and Jane Isaac (to name but a few).

I have a list of over 200 well established multi-genre loving book bloggers ready and waiting to read YOUR book.  My rates are flexible and can be tailored to fit around any budget you may have. Mini blog tours start from £35, with short and punchy blog blitzes starting in the region of £47.  I am more than happy to provide a quote for a tour to suit your needs upon request.

My blog – damppebbles – tends to predominantly feature crime and horror reviews. However, I organise tours for ALL genres (except erotica). You don’t need to be a crime or horror writer to get in touch. I’m always delighted to hear from authors, no matter what genre you write in.

If you would like more information or to request a quote, please email me at with as much information as possible about your book and your tour requirements.

One final point, bloggers tend to work roughly three months in advance.  Could I please ask that you bear this in mind when submitting your enquiry.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Simon Bower, author of Dead in the Water:
“Emma at damppebbles organised a blog tour for my crime thriller. From the outset, Emma was quick to engage and had the contacts to match suitable bloggers to my book. During the blog tour, Emma was very active supporting the tour on Twitter and Facebook. I have no hesitation to recommend damppebbles blog tours – the value it represents far outstrips the very reasonable cost, and it was a pleasure to work with Emma. Finally, the interest generated about my book and the downloads were a massive increase on pre-tour levels. Thank you!”

Sarah Ward, author of the DC Connie Childs series:
“Emma at Damp Pebbles did a wonderful job organising my blog tour for A Patient Fury. The bloggers were engaged, posted their reviews early each morning and Emma trailed each day’s post on Twitter. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Rachel Amphlett, author of the Detective Kay Hunter series:
“I used Emma’s blog tour services for my sixth Detective Kay Hunter novel, GONE TO GROUND. Emma provided a professional and enthusiastic approach to the blog tour and ensured a smooth process for everyone involved. Considering that we are based on opposite sides of the world, this was no small feat! I would have no hesitation in recommending Emma’s services to authors and publishers.”

Gary Raymond, author of The Golden Orphans:
“Damppebbles Blog Tours were fantastic. They took on all the organisation of the tour – I can’t imagine how it could have been easier or smoother from an author’s point of view. Emma Welton was a godsend. Plus, the whole experience introduced me to a wonderful community of bloggers who could not have been more supportive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their service – but it is so much more than just a service – it helped make the promotion of my book a lot of fun.”

Marni Graff, award-winning author, The Trudy Genova Manhattan Mysteries
Damppebbles exceeded my expectations with a far-reaching, enthusiastic blog tour that firmly launched my newest book. I highly recommend Emma’s work, and plan to use Damppebbles for all my future releases.

B.E. Jones, author of Halfway and Wilderness
Emma was very helpful and professional and organised a great blog tour for my novel Halfway. Excellent value for money and I am already working with her again for my next novel Wilderness. Five stars ⭐️

Mary-Jane Riley, author of the Alex Devlin psychological crime thrillers
The blog tour Emma at damppebbles put together for my latest book Gone in The Night was superb. Her organisation was exceptional and I had nothing to worry about at any point. Her bloggers were enthusiastic and spread the word of my book far and wide. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Emma and her value for money blog tour services and will certainly use her again.

Panther Publishing
The tour we organised with damppebbles blog tours was conducted very efficiently and very professionally. Emma kept in touch with me throughout the blog tour, and leading up to it, and the bloggers chosen were fantastic, and really took a punt on a new publisher and new author. I would 100% work with Emma and her bloggers again in the future.

Mark Pettinger, author of the DCI Priest Crime Series
So as the blog tour for #PaperSoldiers comes to an end, and notwithstanding the amazing reviews from all the bloggers, I wanted to thank @damppebbles Emma has been brilliant, professionally organised and run. Great exposure across multiple platforms. Highly recommended 👏 👏
