News from the Holiday Book Blogger Tour!

News from the Holiday Book Blogger Tour!

Happy to report that The Muse Unlocked Holiday Book Blogger Tour continues this next week. And I have some more exciting news to share, too.

But first…our next stop. On Wednesday, Dec. 4, Cate, Oliver and I will be popping by Australia and the lovely Debra Lane for a stop at her blog Words across the Oceans. In fact, there’s been a rumor that not only will we be dropping by with a new original poem inspired by THE MUSE UNLOCKED but apparently Debra thought her blog readers and any new ones following us there might be interested to hear straight from the mouths of Ms. Cate Mullen and Mr. Oliver Sand, the book’s two lead characters, so… let’s just say, readers, you will get precisely that: an exclusive interview with the two of them! That’s next Wednesday, so you won’t want to miss that.

A new added stop on the holiday tour is writer Dan O’Brien’s blog The Dan O’ Brien Project. Dan is a talented indie author and literary consultant who supports other writers by aiming the spotlight on them at his site. On Thursday, Dec. 19, I will be featured in a Q&A at his blog, so be sure to sign up for blog updates so you don’t miss that. And you can also connect with Dan on Facebook and Twitter.

I recently tweeted about another exciting opportunity for more people to become aware of THE MUSE UNLOCKED, yet again another demonstration of how wonderfully generous some authors can be. Fellow author Matthew Krause dons the poncho and channels his alter ego Matt the Aging Hippy in a new innovative online video series on his blog during which he reviews and showcases authors and their latest works. So far, Matt has scheduled a diverse mix of writers, already highlighting the work of Roberta Goodman and Robbie Cox. For the week of Dec. 1, he’ll be featuring…ta da… me! Or more accurately, my book. So I’m quite excited for the opportunity of more people to become aware of THE MUSE UNLOCKED and its underlying themes, and I’ll be sure to share that link through my usual social media channels once the video has been made available. In the meantime, go out to Matt’s site and subscribe to his blog updates. You’ll want to keep up with this witty, insightful writer and all-around thoughtful scribe.

Finally, I hinted at it before but now I can share more. If you are a GoodReads member, you’ll want to stop what you’re doing to give a listen. And if you are not a member just yet but have been wanting to read my book, well, now is your incentive to sign up. (It’s free, you know!) Coming to GoodReads this next Friday, Dec. 6….The 12 Days of The Muse Unlocked Book Giveaway! That’s right… starting next Friday, you will have an opportunity to register for a chance to win a free signed copy of my book THE MUSE UNLOCKED! The giveaway contest is open to all GoodReads members in the U.S. and Canada. And I haven’t told you the best part of all. This giveaway is not only OPEN for 12 days (hence the name)… I will be giving away 12 COPIES of the book! So be sure to stop by GoodReads between December 6-17 for your chance and maybe you will be one of the lucky dozen winners receiving an extra special treat for the holidays. I know quite a few readers who wouldn’t mind curling up in front of a fire this winter with a good book, a glass of wine and Oliver Sand. Now’s your chance! You can’t enter just yet (contest link will be available Friday!) but mark your calendars now…and I, of course, will be reminding you, too, and passing along the link after it becomes available. You can count on that!

There is definitely much going on but I will always keep you up-to-date on any other upcoming holiday book blogger tour news.  And I’m especially happy that you’re here to join me on the journey!  xx
