"I wrote to Cheryl and inquired about a blog tour. From that first email on, through 27 blog stops, I have never been disappointed. We started the tour in September, and finished on November 30th. That’s two and a half months of dealing with someone every week, often every day. That leaves a lot of room for error or messing up. Not with Cheryl. I feel certain that if the word “meticulous” were to be described with a picture, it would be of Cheryl."

"I had so much fun working with Molly's team at Partners in Crime Tours. It was great to have Molly in my corner. She did all the legwork, from scheduling to following up on host blogs. All I had to do was complete the interviews and guest posts. It was a delight working with her!"
~ Natasha Deen, author of True Grime.
"Partners in Crime did such a great job on the tour for my novel Scream Catcher, I could hardly keep up. For one full month I woke up to a new review, guest blog post, interview or sometimes all three! Not a day was wasted. In fact, on some days, two new reviews came out. The tour not only spread the word about my new publication, it resulted in increased sales. I'd recommend them to anyone. Great job!"
~ Vincent Zandri, Bestselling author of The Innocent and Scream Catcher
"Partners in Crime is professional, diligent, and passionate about what they do. You really couldn't ask for more from a blog tour organizer. They're a true pleasure to work with."
~ Lou Aronica, Publisher, The Story Plant
"Cheryl, It's been a true pleasure to work with you during my book promos. I cannot tell you how impressed I have been with your dedication and TRUE professionalism. That is becoming rare in this business and you stand out among the others. What I also appreciated about your approach is that when a request was made by either myself or my publisher, you took care of it immediately. Again, that was a joy to experience. I look forward to working with you in the future."
~ Laurel Dewey, author of the Jane Perry series
"When I began to look for ways to have my first novel Missing in Mexico reviewed to receive critical feedback on it, a successful author suggested that I look into a virtual book tour. I researched several virtual book tours and found that most of them were a general “We take any type of book” tour. I’m sure they’re all good, and they seem to do well, but I wanted a tour that was geared more toward MY book – a mystery novel. So I contacted Molly Edwards at Partners in Crime Tours because her tour was genre-specific, exactly what I wanted. It was a great match, and it worked well.
As a result of my two months of being on tour with Molly, my book received exposure in lots of venues and to many new readers that I would never have been able to reach on my own. I also received some very important feedback that I’ve incorporated into my next mystery novel – that feedback alone was worth the price of the tour. Along the way, I’ve also made some new friends, people who are willing to share information and advice because they’ve read many books and they know what works. There are never any guarantees as to what can happen to your book, but my debt novel Missing in Mexico has been a #1 TOP RATED Kindle book for six straight weeks (and counting!)
I am extremely pleased to have worked with Molly and the entire cadre of readers, reviewers, and bloggers at Partners in Crime Tour. Their personal and beyond-expectation service is truly amazing. Thank you, Molly, for caring about mystery writers, and for creating a book tour that is specifically for them. I hope you will hold a spot open for me when I’m ready to go on tour with my next novel."

Cheryl, Well done, the tour was a big success. When you write a book you want feedback, preferably positive. I like the fact that not all of of the tour hosts were into the crime/thriller genre, but gave their honest point of view and I must say the results were gratifying. The reviews after a while become addicting. I’d wake up looking for your e-mail, anticipating the next one. I’d recommend the Partners in Crime Tour for anyone who is writing books. All the best, Peter

Cheryl Masciarelli runs the tightest ship in the business when it comes to virtual blog tours. Her communication is flawless and everything runs like clockwork. I've been on a few tours with other companies, but Cheryl and Partner's In Crime will always be the first people I call when I'm ready to go on tour again.
~ Bill Walker Author of TITANIC 2012 and A Note from an Old Acquaintance
I have booked a 'Partners-In-Crime' Tour for one of my novels and have been pleasantly surprised at the dedication the organizer, Cheryl Masciarelli, has shown toward making this tour a success. Never having done a tour before and being a bit helpless with social networking, she has guided me through the process, has always been available for my many questions and has coordinated the different tour stops with endless patience. What impressed me most, however, was her enormous enthusiasm. She showed amazing respect for the author as well as all the reviewers. I thank her with all my heart for her wonderful work and of course highly recommend her services.

Hi Cheryl, Kudos to both you and Gina for your excellent work. We couldn't be more pleased with the results. Yours is the third blog tour company we've worked with, and our experience with you was 100% positive, unsurpassed. You will definitely be hearing from us again.
~ Catherine Treadgold, Publisher, Coffeetown Press, Curveball by Jen Estes
Cheryl, I had a lot of fun on my blog tour and in addition to reaching out to new readers, I also discovered some great book websites. I really appreciate the daily emails and felt you went above and beyond to make the tour easy and enjoyable. I was very impressed with how quickly you handled the few issues that came up. I look forward to working with you in the future!
~ Jen Estes, author of Curveball
I think you do an outstanding job. You keep your bloggers on task with reminders of due dates, you promptly notify your clients when a blog is posted, and you correspond with clients in a caring way. My experience with your tour has been very positive all around. I now have many good reviews to use in promoting Sasha Plotkin's Deceit, which would not be the case had I not used your good services.
~ Vaughn Sherman, author of Sasha Plotkin's Deceit
"Gina was a pro from start to finish, keeping us all in the loop with grace and humor. The tour schedule and all the details were arranged well in advance. Never for a moment did any of us feel that our book was just one of many. We were also given valuable guidance as to tour etiquette. I have nothing but praise for Partners in Crime and Gina in particular."
~ Catherine Treadgold, Publisher, Coffeetown Press, Death In The Memorial Garden by Kathie Deviny
"I'd say that was the best of the tours I've been on. Congratulations and thanks. I liked that Gina always answered my questions promptly and kept me informed about our bloggers. That's important. I would highly recommend your tour to authors of our genre without hesitation. It's a beauty. Nice artwork, too."
~ A. F. Ebbers, Author, Dangerous Past"Your services which I found to be nothing short of terrific. Your diligence, organization, and thoroughness impressed me no end, and I am already looking forward to working with you again for STRONG RAIN FALLING The value you offer for the money is incredible and I'm sure we'll be working together many times and on many books into the future". ~ Jon Land, Author, Pandora's Temple
"If I was to simplify my feelings regarding PICT, I would say it was a flawless process with personal attention to the most minute detail. The author is always kept in the loop and honest advice is always an email away. Both Cheryl and Gina are professionals at what they do. I will hire then again for my sequel. Anyone looking for the best book tour company, look no further than PICT, they are the best!" ~ Marc A. DiGiacomo, Author of In A Small Town
"I thought your communication was strong and very helpful in knowing what was going, whether something was being posted or if there was a delay for some reason and why. You were super easy to work with and very professional. I will recommend your services to other and look forward to working with you again!"~ Jack Patterson, Author of Cross the Line
"I was delighted with the tour for THE TROUBLE WITH CHARLIE. Partners In Crime was thorough and organized, communicating exactly what to expect, when and where. The tour enabled me to reach and connect with readers I never would have found on my own. And it was easy! The list of interviews and blogs came far in advance, giving me plenty of time to respond. Beyond that, once I'd provided the initial information (excerpt, cover, bio,etc) my work was done. Posts went up almost daily without my effort. I could promote each post and stop to comment on the site. But other than that, I was freed up to work on other things, knowing that my tour was proceeding and being well-managed by pros. Every detail was covered. The response was great. I would definitely recommend Partners in Crime, and was so impressed with the quality of their work and the character of their staff that I plan to tour with them again." ~ Merry Jones, Author of The Trouble With Charlie
