Are there any bloggers out there interested in diversity in books? Is it difficult for readers to find characters that are more than just straight, cis-gendered white men, whom are able bodied? Would you like to receive free books like this, by authors self and traditionally published?

Were looking for dedicated book bloggers(and it doesn't matter how many followers you have, as long as you can commit to reading the book, leaving a review, if you don't like the book, simply highlighting it's blurb, and post on your scheduled day, in the tours allotted time) who are interested in books of multiple categories and genres, that have diversity in them.

Diverse Book Tours is a team of four women of color, founded by Sasha Beatty @ So Bookishly. Briana Gaitan of Books With Bree and Libertad & Guinevere Thomas of Twinja Book Reviews have also come on board, to do our part to promote and market diverse books.

We need people who are dedicated bloggers, people who can commit and be counted on. We are preparing our soft launch for August 31st, 2014 and would like to have 50 committed bloggers before we start taking clients. The more we can gain, the better, but if we can gain 40 more interested book bloggers, we can start with success.

Having a list of 50 would ensure we would be able to divide a reader's preference by their genre of preference, and guarantee clients get the most out of the blog tours!

Bloggers must feel a need for diversity in books.

I'm so glad you posted! I did go the the link you shared. I didn't sign up to be a tour host just yet. Do you know how frequent the book tour host is required to read and review? I didn't see that info there. Thanks.

Right now we are in the beginning stage. I will bring this up with the founder Sasha, but people who sign up aren't required to read and review every single book, only the ones that interest them.

Hope that helps! Will provide more info as soon as I hear from Sasha :o) Thank you for inquiring.

Kim (kimgm) | 1032 comments I would love to be a host. I'm an author and book reviewer, and I often host blog tours on my review site, http://kimtalksbooks.com.

That would be awesome @kim :)

Alma  (sunshinealma) I would be interested in reading/reviewing/blogging books. As Michelle mentioned earlier, I'd also need to know how often I would have to review a book as I have a list of books I read/review on a regular basis. Here's the link to my blog "You Decide: Should I read it or not?": http://shouldireaditornot.wordpress.com/ Thanks!

Sasha just got back to me. While she's updating the website with this info, Im passing on the info she gave me.

Book tour hosts should sign up for a tour based on whether or not the book appeals to them. There's no minimum quota of reviews/book tours people are required to sign up for per month.

Ideally, we'd like to have enough people to fill up tour spots without resorting to "you need to sign up for one or more book tours a month" which is why we would prefer at least 50 sign ups, so that we are able to appeal to bloggers different tastes.

Not everyone will like romance, not everyone likes sci-fi, etc.,etc.,etc.

Were hosting a giveaway for people who sign up as well.It should be fun :)

Hope that answers any concerns @Michelle and @Alma.

I checked out the site. I blog, but it's a group blog & I don't own it so I'll run the idea by the others & see what we can do.
