Pinoy Book Tours officially exists!

You’re probably wondering what this site is for. What’s the purpose of this blog? And who are we? If you’ve caught a glimpse of our tweets in the past, you’ll know right away. But with millions of tweets being generated every single day, it’s not that likely. And we'll make it easy for you by putting all the info in this post! ;)

First, we’ll introduce ourselves. We are Precious and Kai - two pinay bloggers who have been in the YA blogosphere for more than a year now. We love YA. Find out more about us here:

Moving on to the story of how it all started…

It all started when Fragments of Life and Amaterasu Reads had begun to boom early this year. Kai and I were preparing and brainstorming for Dystopian Domination. Then Kai told me if I wanted to start a blog tour site for Filipinos. Of course, I said yes. But at that time I didn’t know much Filipino bloggers. But after she tweeted about a possible get-together of bloggers here in Manila, she was overwhelmed with the amount of tweets she got. And we realized, why not? We are fortunate enough to receive review copies from publishers in US, UK, Australia and Ireland. We might as well share the experience to other Filipino bloggers through this tour site.

The News:

Kai got a copy of The Juliet Spell from Harlequin Teen US! And that’s just the first book that we'll tour. More are coming! Tomorrow, we’ll be opening the tour for those who are interested. Bloggers should fill out the form first before signing-up for any tour.
