1 Large Male (Extra Large ;))(or more) (Male, Alpha Male, Preternatural Male, etc.)
1 Petite female (or more) (Small, BBW, Amazonian Built, Hourglass, etc)

Book Reviews ~ If you request book reviews and have some scheduled on the tour please forward me all available eBook formats and I will in turn forward them to the respective host(s). Please note that I have no control over the book reviews, they will be the bloggers true opinions of the novel. I also cannot guarantee the length of a review as some reviewers use short reviews and express only their opinion. I ask my host to only post if it is rated at least 3 stars or above we understand anything under would be negativity. I also cannot guarantee a positive rating because all ratings are my tour host(s) opinion(s). If for some reason they rate it under a 3 I ask them to only do a Spotlight/Promo Post only. They are free to place their review after the tour is over if they want though. But most bloggers are not out to ruin anyone and would prefer not to even write a review if they did not care for it. With this being said I never guarantee any reviews on a tour though they are still offered. I am usually able to get at least 1 or 2 but still this is not a guarantee and for this I am sorry in advance as I know reviews are what authors strive for the most. On the positive side though any promotion at all is always better than none.

Bonus/Deleted Scenes Post ~ Author's Do This

*** Character ARC ~ is the transformation or inner journey of a character over the course of a story. If a story has a character arc, the character begins as one sort of person, and during the story, things happen which gradually transforms him or her into a different sort of person. ~~ Author Does This or You the Host if you Have Reviewed the Book.  (Creative Post)

*** Character Bio (there are 2 different sets of Questions for this Post Type) ~ Created by Author to give us the reader some insight on their character/s. (Creative Post)



*** Character Cast ~ These are created by the author and a great way for readers to get to know the characters better and get some of the information they may have missed while devouring their book.
This type of post is just basically the author writing a synopsis of sorts for 1- 3 of their Characters.
Example Below: (Creative Post)

Harry: Has an insatiable curiosity and a new found gift to explore. Friends he never thought to have. Freedom in the castle the likes he never had at home. A dark connection to the wizard who murdered his family. Makes up his own mind and doesn’t give into pressure. Enjoys the freedom of flying on a broom above all. Most wants a family like Ron’s.
Hermione: A muggle born witch that tops the class. Though she doesn’t show it the ridicule over her being best in class bothers her, as well as that over her bushy hair. Having Ron and Harry as her friend’s makes things a lot easier, usually. She likes to learn new facts and read ahead in classes. Light reading consists of books most other witch and wizards wouldn’t bother reading. Ron and Harry would be lost without her.
Ron: Is the youngest boy with a younger sister. He comes from a poor family but a happy one. Sometimes he envies Harry for his fame and popularity. He loves to eat. He wants to one day stand out from his brothers and be noticed for something he has done.

Excerpt Post ~ this one is self-explanatory as well. Though it can be given as a General Excerpt in the Media Kit or one that has never been seen before and picked especially for your stop as an Exclusive Excerpt this will be at the authors’ discretion though. If a blogger is doing an excerpt post this is kind of like a promo post, I do ask though that if you choose to do this kind of post that you send me more than one excerpt post (NOT whole chapters, they are much too long {unless of course you are doing the Chapter Tour)) that way each blog hosting an excerpt specifically can mix them up. An Excerpt is kind of like a promo post. Providing more than one excerpts allows for variety among the bloggers. Excerpts should be around 500 words for full length Novels and Between 250 – 300 for Novellas.

*** Fortunes Told ~ This post will be an interesting post as the author will choose a character from the novel and has him and/or her sit with a fortune teller who will than predict something in that character's future... (Creative Post) You Can NOW Choose Which Image YOU Would Like TO Use for Your Post.

Unless specifically  discussed between us the giveaways are entirely dictated by the respective bloggers. They choose the terms and conditions (Unless you wanted it open to certain places like only US or US/Canada, or INT) they also choose how long the giveaway will run. When they choose the winner(s) by their own method, they will forward me the winner(s) info and I will in turn forward it to you. Unless it is a tour wide giveaway then I will use a rafflecopter form to fill out and I will then in turn forward you the winner(s) when they have been chosen.
