One Week Blog Tour Dates!


Okay! I’ve got the One Week blog tour schedule below! Follow along for interviews, what I can only hope will be reasonably interesting guest posts, reviews of One Week courtesy of the bloggers kind enough to take time to read it, and spotlight posts. If I am not mistaken, every stop on the tour is a chance to enter to win the above-pictured groovy giveaway package:

So that’s a One Week tote bag full of the following goodies: A paperback copy of One Week, a Starbucks gift card, some signed swag, and also (not pictured) a HaleStorm Engineering Employee of the Month T-shirt. We start at Simply Ali ‘s blog tomorrow, 1/27. Join us!!

Happy reading, and thank you for following along! (Oh, and if you have already read One Week and enjoyed it enough to feel inclined to leave a review, please consider doing so. I think I may do something special to celebrate on my Facebook page if One Week hits at least the 25 review mark on Amazon or B&N!)

Thank you, thank you! Now win Free Stuff!

I absolutely must start this post with a huge, squeezy hug thank you to everyone who has ordered King of Darkness. Pre-ordering a new book from a debut author in this economy takes a tiny leap of faith, and that leap means quite a lot to me. I just want to let you how much that means to me. I write because I love to read so much. I want to be taken on a journey and to experience a new world. I hope to give you the same enjoyment.

And to you folks who have emailed asking for bookmarks and trading cards so you can hand them out to your friends and spread the word? I can’t tell you how amazing that feels, THANK YOU! Someday when my kids tell me I’m a loser, I can be all “I’m not a loser, once upon a time, I had my very own street crew!” And then they’ll roll their eyes at me and walk away, but whatev. You people rock, and I adore you. Thanks so much for spreading the word. Moreover, I’ve got bookmarks coming out my ears so thanks for taking them off my hands. 🙂
