About the Tour
The tour for King of the Rising accommodates both book bloggers and booktubers. It is open to both US-based and international creators, with priority being given to those who identify as Black and/or Caribbean. Its official hashtag is #KingOfTheRisingTour.
The tour will run from November 30th to December 4th, which falls within the book’s release. Reviews are required for this tour, regardless of platform. However, you are more than welcome to add other creative or promotional content of your preference.
Both print ARCs and digital galleys of King of the Rising will be distributed among all tour hosts, regardless of where they are based. For those who haven’t read the first book yet, digital galleys of Queen of the Conquered can also be provided upon request.
All tour hosts are required to provide their NetGalley email addresses. This will serve as a precaution for shipping delays, missing packages, among other issues outside our control. Hence, you must have a NetGalley account to participate.
Sign-ups will close within next week, and the selected tour hosts will be contacted via email. The CBT Twitter account will announce once the confirmation emails have been sent out.
