iRead is a virtual book tour company that works with authors, publishers, publicists and book bloggers.
Why virtual book tours
iRead Book Tours knows that getting your book into the hands of book bloggers will get your book noticed. When readers want to learn more about a certain book, they read the reviews. It's fine to get the low down from Kirkus or Publishers Weekly, but what are readers saying? Not professional reviewers, but those folks who actually buy books? You know, the book lovers, librarians and book club members who scour the library, online retailers, bookstores or Goodreads to find the next great title? What are they saying about your book? Do they even know it exists? At iRead we understand that using the good old-fashioned word-of-mouth technique with the latest online marketing trends is the best publicity!
What can iRead do for you
When your book goes on tour with scheduled stops on well-established blogs, thousands of readers will see it. What's more, once your book is reviewed or spotlighted on a blog, it remains in the virtual world and can be accessed continuously. Blogging helps to create a buzz about you and your book. Never before have authors been so in touch with their readers. Social media has changed the face of book publicity. It's an exciting time to be published, but it's also more competitive. How do you get readers to read your book? That's where we come in. We target those who spend hours talking about books: book bloggers.
How we help you succeed
At iRead, we guide you every step of the way. We contact the bloggers and set up the tour from beginning to end. We customize the tour for you and your book, selecting specific blogs that cater to the genre of your book. We have access to hundreds of bloggers whose blogs we have perused and carefully chosen to be a part of our host team.
BookGrabbr is a spoke in the wheel of marketing that simply hasn’t been done before. Our platform is built around the most important question of all- “What is the most powerful way to encourage a reader to read a book?”
Answer- “The recommendation of a friend”.
BookGrabbr bottles that concept up and facilitates it in a digital way by creating a platform for authors and publishers to share extended previews of their books through social media. You may be asking yourself, “How is that any different from any other site where an author can share their book to their social following?”.
The answer is simple- BookGrabbr is built to facilitate readers reading in exchange for sharing.
So when you share your book and one of your followers clicks to “Grabb” the content you’ve shared, our system requires them to first share the content prior to reading! When those people’s friends see their post inviting them to read and they click the link they will be prompted to do the same thing all the way up the social media ladder. This creates a viral marketing opportunity. With just a few readers thousands of people will be exposed to an author’s book!
Authors have the ability to track real time analytics on how many people are reading their content, how many social media news feeds their book is showing up on, how many of those readers have clicked to purchase the book, and what countries their readers are coming from! Those are just a few of the analytics…We will let you sign up to see the rest.
As far as the founders are concerned…we don’t matter. What matters?
Publishers and authors having a tool to market their books that is unique and economical with real trackable results. BookGrabbr facilitates that.

When that one-message-fits-all card from the drugstore isn’t right. And a text isn’t enough. Do something unexpected. Send a Lovepop.
A Lovepop is more than a card. The intricate 3D paper sculptures are designed by naval engineers on cutting edge software and then hand-crafted in the Asian art form of sliceform kirigami.
Whether it’s a wedding or a birthday, if you’re saying thanks (for not mentioning that thing that happened in Vegas) or celebrating (a co-worker’s compulsive love of cats), we’ve got you covered.
Lovepop founders Wombi Rose and John Wise became best friends at Webb Institute training to become naval architects. After school, the duo traveled to Vietnam where they discovered incredible hand-crafted paper cards.
They headed back to Boston and put the cards in the hands of friends, family, and strangers–and watched. That moment when someone opened a card and saw the paper sculpture revealed for the first time became their obsession, and Lovepop was born.
