The Midnight Garden Blog Tours

The Midnight Garden has organized some traveling ARC tours in the past, and we’ve decided to start hosting the occasional traditional blog tour as well! Tours take a lot of time and effort to coordinate, so we’ll only be doing them for books or authors that we really love, especially since there are no plans to charge for the service. Would you like to participate in tours hosted by the Midnight Garden? Sign up here if you’re a blogger and would like to add your name to our database! We consider many factors when inviting participants, but we’re primarily interested in matching up bloggers who make the most sense for each tour. This usually means reviewers who write thoughtful content who can also bring a great audience to the books. Tour stops are limited, so preference is definitely given to bloggers we have a relationship with/chat with often and who… Read more »
