Here’s what our past clients have to say about their Pump Up Your Book Tour:
“I invested in a three month virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Books promotions for my noir thriller, Moonlight Falls. Not only did the marketing campaign work wonders for spreading the word about the new novel, in the very last month, on the very last day of the tour, Moonlight Falls became an Amazon Kindle bestseller!”
–Vincent Zandri, author Moonlight Falls and The Remains
“Dot, I just want to let you know that your book tour is the greatest I’ve ever imagined! You just do a most awesome job. I feel like I’m all over the internet! Thanks so much for all your care and brains! This is an author tour with heart!
- Lilian Duval, author of YOU NEVER KNOW: TALES OF TOBIAS AN ACCIDENTAL LOTTERY WINNER
“I finished a two week mini virtual tour with Pump Up Your Book that ended on the 14th. It was a very positive experience consisting of guest blog posts, interviews, and reviews. The reviews for Schooled In Lies have been excellent so far, although I still need some Amazon reviews…hint…hint! Click here for the links to my stops. I highly recommend Pump Up Your Book virtual tours. Dorothy Thompson is a sweetheart and made the entire process painless.”
–Angela Henry, Schooled in Lies
“…This has been an awesome experience!!!”
–Dolen Perkins-Valdez, author of WENCH
“…I’ve really enjoyed working with you these past 2 months. Your encouraging comments and always funny upbeat personality has been the highlight of each and every day we prepared for this tour. I’ll be sad when it’s all over. :( I highly recommend you to any author looking for an online publicist.”
–Victoria Simcox, author of THE MAGIC WARBLE
“The “good press” about you is no lie! I’m very happy about the mention in the Chicago Sun Times! Yay!”
–Joanne Sundell, author of Meggie’s Remains
“The world of publishing has changed so dramatically that it’s imperative to go where people are reading and talking about books and buying them – which is online. Dorothy Thompson came highly recommended and she has been great!”
–Gary Morgenstein, author of Jesse’s Girl
“This tour has been wonderful as was the first – I hope you are booked solid for August. Your presentational data is so well done and professionally presented – you truly represent us so individually and in the best light. I hope all of your clients really understand and appreciate what you provide and what it takes to bring it all together. You personalize each person (client) and really extend yourself in every way. And you are so honest and basically very up-front in fulfilling all of your activities. As I always say, “You are such a sweetheart!””
–Angus Munro, author of Full House But Empty
“I have absolutely loved touring with Pump Up Your Book because they have been a pleasure to collaborate with and I can´t imagine a way to make the process simpler than they have made it. I take off my hat to Dorothy Thompson and her staff!”
–Dr. David Gruder, The New IQ

–World Ahead Media
“Dorothy Thompson is the Queen of the Virtual Tour. She knows her business. Dorothy has gotten me more publicity in a shorter time than all of the other pr people I have worked with put together. In addition, she has opened a new world of internet marketing to me. She has definitely moved me up the search engines. And that’s what we authors want, isn’t it?”
Judi Moreo, author of YOU ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH: EVERY WOMAN’S GUIDE TO PURPOSE, PASSION, AND POWER
“…thank you for such a wonderful job – can’t even begin to tell you how impressed I am…”
Jane Green, NY Times Bestselling author of SECOND CHANCE
“The Pump Up Your Book staff is a remarkable group of professional people who baby sit you through your entire tour. I highly recommend them. They treat your book like it’s their book.”
Garasamo Maccagnone , St. John of the Midfield
“I’m so thrilled—Why God Matters: How to Recognize Him in Daily Life won the CSPA Book of the year! This is a popular award, so publicity played as big a role as quality of the book. I want to thank you for all the hard work you did arranging this book tour back in June. It helped immensely to get the word out, and to get reviews and interested readers.”
Karina Fabian, author of Why God Matters
“I don’t think people realize how much work it is to promote your book. Jeez, writing the book is the easy part!!! I really thank Dorothy for putting my virtual tour together. I’ve had a few other writers ask me if I did this. My writing mentor was very impressed. But I told them I wouldn’t have even known where to start. Sure you can ask a few friends to host you, but how do get the schedule together without going crazy? There’s no way I could have done the tour by myself.”
Kim Baccellia, author of EARRINGS OF IXTUMEA
“When I began promoting the release of “Only Moments” I contracted a very high image Public Relations company. I got a few radio interviews but not one review, and no web exposure whatsoever. I only wish that I had met Dorothy Thompson and her “Pump Up Your Book Promotion” a few months earlier. Her tireless commitment gave me exposure beyond my expectations and at a tenth of what I paid one of the best Public Relations firms in the country.”
Nick Oliva, author of ONLY MOMENTS
“Dorothy is a wonderful resource for promoting your book. I highly recommend her blog tour for authors who want to get the most out their publicity dollars.”

–Kathy Holmes, author of REAL WOMEN WEAR RED
“Get in touch with the Pump Up Your Book people…they are the best!”

Linda Kay Silva, Across Time
“First of all, the virtual world is entirely new to me, and discovering it has been a great adventure. And then Dorothy Thompson has been wonderful, working so hard on my behalf, getting me reviews, and interviews like this one, giving me an opportunity not just to talk about my book, but to meet a world of new and interesting people. And I’ve been so touched by how welcoming and kind and interested you (Rebecca Camarena) and other hosts have all been.”
Camille Marchetta, author of The River, By Moonlight (as quoted on Rebecca Camarena’s blog at Paperback Writer)
“This has been a wonderful experience. Dorothy Thompson and her whole team are very committed to each author, take each author’s tour very seriously, and work towards maximum exposure in the right places. This is the best book promotion expenditure I’ve made in terms of return on investment. I highly recommend Pump Up Your Book Promotion.“
