Authors Are Rockstars Tour Sign-up

Well, it’s finally here. It’s SIGN-UP day for the Authors Are Rockstars Tour! We are so super excited that there are so many of you who have already expressed interest in being a part of our tour. Both author and blogger response has been absolutely amazing and we can’t thank you all enough!

We hope to make this event great and really let those authors we love shine throughout the month of August.

And while we’d love to have every single awesome author and every single blogger be a part of the tour, we are only three bloggers with two blogs and we only have one month for the event.

We are beginning the sign-ups today, although we are still awaiting response from some of the authors we’ve reached out to. And we will update this post each day during the sign-up process with any new authors that are on board.

If you see your favorites on the list already, you should sign up now! If you want to hold out to see who else might be on board you can wait. Signing up early does not give you preferential treatment. But sign-ups will close at Midnight, Eastern, on Sunday, July 15th.

Be sure to look at the list of authors participating carefully before you make your choice. While many of the author post types and dates are still to be announced, please note the authors who have already committed to a date and post type or those who have pre-prepared interviews.

Authors – If you’ve received an email and would like to participate we would love to have you on board, there are still a few stops available after August 15th!

Bloggers – You will be allowed only ONE chance to change your original picks. If you want to make a change to your original picks, email us at the address above.

The Tour

The tour will run from August 1st through August 31st. Each day of the month will have one, two or three tour stops.

The tour will start at both Fiktshun and Two Chicks On Books and end on both our blogs. We will have a kick-off post + giveaway with all the stops and we will also each have posts dedicated to authors that are our rockstars. And on the final day of the tour, we will have a wrap-up post along with posts for the final two authors we will be spotlighting.

All the rest of the days will be for you to show your love and appreciation for those authors you call rockstars.

The Rules, Requirements and other details


You must complete the sign-up form in order to be considered.

Signing up in no way guarantees you will be chosen for a tour stop. (We’re so sorry that we won’t be able to include everyone!)

Being accepted as a tour stop does not guarantee you will get your first choice of author.

If you are chosen you must respond with your acceptance and with your stop preferences and/or interview questions or guest post topics within 24 hours after notification. If you do not respond we will be forced to choose someone else.


To be considered to host any author you must have reviewed their books. (See review requirements immediately below.) And if you have rated their books, ratings cannot be less than four stars, unless you provide a compelling reason why you should still be considered. Remember, you’re picking authors you think are rockstars!

To host an author with three or more books published, you must have reviewed at least two of their books. (We will be checking your blogs and Goodreads.)

To host an author with one or two published books, you must have reviewed at least one of their books.

To host an author whose books have yet to be published, you must be anxiously awaiting the book’s release and have either posted about that book on your blog or provide a compelling reason in the form below.

Other details

Selections will be made based on a number of criteria including the best match-up between author and blogger, blogger’s overall reviews, and blogger’s reputation and trustworthiness.

Blog following, page views or Twitter following will not be a deciding factor in the selection process.

Blog longevity, number of reviews, types of reviews – (bash-free is a must) – will be considered when making our selections.

Blogger “friends” will not be given preference. It’s about making the best matches between authors and bloggers on the tour.

Writing in an author does not guarantee that author will be included on the tour. They may have already been contacted and either are unavailable or have yet to respond, or all tour stops may already have been filled.

Blogger participation announcements will be made both by email and in a post on both Fiktshun and Two Chicks On Books on Wednesday, July 18th.

Giveaways: For tour stops that will be hosting an author or publisher donated giveaway prize, there can be no mandatory tasks aside from leaving a blog comment. And there can be up to two extra entry opportunities. As a thank you to the authors you are hosting you may want to make those extra entries about the authors but it is not mandatory.

There will be no requirements/restrictions for tour stops that choose to host their own giveaways.

Dates to know

Tour dates: August 1st – 31st

  3. But wait! My author isn’t on the list?! Oh the humanity! 😉 Thanks for the “write-in” option!! 🙂 (Though I had no trouble making selections from the list, too.)

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      These are the authors that have responded and agreed to be on the tour. Some authors can’t make it, a few we’re still waiting on that may join in later, and some we may not yet have reached out to but might if there is interest.

      We just couldn’t email every author though we’d have loved to! Which is why we added the write-in option!
