JustRead Buzz Blitz + Giveaway

JustRead 5th Birthday Buzz Blitz

Welcome to the Buzz Blitz celebrating 5 years of buzzing about books with JustRead Publicity Tours!

In the fall of 2019 I somehow ran across JustRead Publicity Tours. I know it was on Instagram, and I had to find out more about what they were doing! I'm sure they were touring a book I was already interested in and that's what piqued my interest.

Now, I'll be honest. When I signed up to be a host I had no idea what I was doing. In fact, I asked Beth SO many questions I thought they were going to stop choosing me to be on any tours. HA! Beth was incredibly kind and answered every, single question I had.

I started signing up for all of the tours that I was interested in and I was HOOKED! I did the bookstagram tours, social tours, blog tours, and review tours. I loved doing them all! There were lots of books that I wasn't interested in, but there were lots of other hosts who were interested in them. Just like anything, not every book or type of tour is for everyone.

Well, let me tell you how being a host turned into a JOB!!! In 2021 I had reached out to Carrie to inquire about any available positions. Sadly, they didn't have any. I stayed with my other job and then in 2022 we both decided it was time to split ways. Want to see God in action? The VERY last day of my other job, I received an email from Beth asking me to apply to an open position that had become available since Rachel was leaving. Seriously, I was shocked!! I went through the whole interview process and started with JustRead in January of this year.

I'll admit, it was very daunting at first. There was WAY more to learn that I could've imagined. I made numerous mistakes and figure I'll make more along the way. Beth and Carrie have been amazingly gracious as well as all of the hosts who have joined the tours since I started.

I am blessed indeed! Here's why you should join us!!
