Help from a Friend!

Isn't this a cool blog tour badge? It was made for me by my friend, Bobbie of Book Reviews by Bobbie ! I'm always in awe of Photoshop skills. I think she did a brilliant job. Thanks, Bobbie! The 12 Days of A CHRISTMAS BALL Blog Tour will be visiting her site on the 28th--one day from our release date!

And while I'm saying thank you, let me add my appreciation for all our blog hosts this week! They provide a venue for authors to speak to readers without asking for anything in return. We had a great time at RomanceBuyTheBook, Love is an Exploding Cigar, Yankee Romance Reviewers, Romance Junkies, and The Romance Studio. If you don't normally follow those blogs, let me encourage you to put them on your list.

As you know, I did a solo 50 day/50 blog tour for the release of VEXING THE VISCOUNT last January-February. This blog tour has been a very different experience for me. For one thing, since it's so much shorter I can already see the light at the end of the blog tunnel. I'm not recovering from major surgery so pain isn't a distraction this time. And I've been power-blogging for a while now, so it doesn't feel so odd to hurl my thoughts into cyberspace any more. But the nicest part of this blog tour has been coordinating it with my co-authors, Jennifer Ashley and Alissa Johnson. They are awesome, creative and so giving of their time, even though they are both heads down on deadlines!

And thanks to all of you, my blog touristas! You make each stop along the way such fun!

Hope to see you each day!

Its always exciting for us (readers) and for authors when a new book is about to be birthed; I'm so pleased to be a part of the tour and I can't wait to host you, Jennifer and Alissa on September 28th, 2009.

Take care!!

Bobbie--Approve? Are you kidding? I'm thrilled about the badge. I just wish I'd begged you to do one for me earlier! As soon as I have the cover art for Stroke of Genius, I'll be asking you for a favor! Thanks so much!
