First, About iRead Book Tours:

At iRead, we give special attention to every book that tours with us. We are passionate about books and we customize all our tours because no two authors are alike.

Now About Laura Fabiani:

Laura Fabiani, Author and Found of iRead BooK ToursIn 2008, Laura began blogging about books shortly after she published her first book. She started Library of Clean Reads, a book review blog, and discovered the joy of reviewing a variety of genres. Her children have joined her in this venture and they spend many happy hours reading books together. A Special Care Counselor by profession, Laura has co-led and developed programs for seniors with dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease. She has a passion for the topic of neuroscience and wellness.

Throughout the years she has met and worked with wonderful publishers, both traditional and indie, as well as publicists and authors. Best of all, she discovered the world of book bloggers–a community of special people who spend their precious time sharing their love of books and all things related to books.

Taking part in book tours has always made Laura feel more connected to authors and the publishing field. She organized her own virtual tour when her book was published and she learned several things. As an author, it exposed her to actual reader views and social media. As a book blogger and book tour organizer, it taught her the amount of work it entailed. And she loves it!

You can find Laura blogging at Library of Clean Reads and Essentially Italian. She is the owner of iRead Book Tours,  Italy Book Tours, and Je Lis Blog Tours.

My Thoughts as a Tour Host for iReads:

I have hosted with various book tour hosts. Theirs is a job that entails a vast amount of organization and skill in managing authors, calendars, and bloggers daily.

My greatest appreciation of iReads and Laura falls is in the great attention paid to detail. The blogger receives clear instructions on time and well before the review date. In addition, Laura manages a variety of genre in the books she offers her bloggers to read and review. Everything from children’s books through YA fantasy and fiction to contemporary fiction for women and men plus books on health and wellness.

I have recently pared down the number of blog tours with whom I work, but rest assured I will always enjoy my relationship with iReads. Thanks, Laura, to you and your team for all you do!
