Y’all, I really didn’t think I’d ever become this person – you know the person who’s morning gets instantly better when she takes the first sip of coffee. But, I just had some coffee and it was so utterly delicious and warm and smooth and all that good stuff – almost as comforting and fun as wearing sparkly socks. (No worries though – I will not become the person who can’t function without coffee. #NotHappening)
Yesterday was Day Two of the blog tour celebration for Where Dandelions Grow. The day included a lot of writing work, babysitting, a glorious sunset, cooking supper while playing Skip-Bo, cotton candy, and a fun game of miniature golf. (Which I soundly lost after an epic beginning where the first hole took me seven strokes. #PlayingLikeAPro #OrMaybeNot)
By the way, did y’all know that with my giveaway y’all can go back and get entries each day? Like, if you followed my Twitter account, then you can go back tomorrow and get more entries, and the next day, too? Pretty cool, right? (You can – and totally should – enter the giveaway. Just click here.) Speaking of Twitter… One of my dreams is to be one of those funny Twitter posters. I haven’t quite reached that level of success yet, but if you want to follow me and cheer on my attempts? Well, you’d get to see a side of me that isn’t always evident on the rest of the internet. (Plus, I’d be endlessly grateful to you.)
Around the Internet
Beth from Sweet Contemplations reviewed Where Dandelions Grow and says she wishes the book was several hundred pages longer. (Aww! #MakesMyAuthorHeartHappy)
Zielle at The Ardent Reader also reviewed the book and says “I don’t think I have ever read a book that has spoken to me this much, and made me smile so much at the end.” Wow, wow, wow! As someone who has a horrible time with endings, this makes me want to dance for joy.
Jessie at Whimsical Writings for His Glory just now had her review go live, so it’s hot off the press.
Rebekah over at Rebekah DeVall – Writer for God graciously allowed me to guest post on her blog, so you can head over there to get a look at a strange “coincidence” regarding the book and my life.
And, as always you can see the reviews piling up on Goodreads (where you can also mark the book to-read!) and Amazon. I’ve also had fun posting pictures and little tidbits about my day on Facebook (my author page), Twitter (where, as I mentioned, I’m trying to be amusing), Instagram (where I’m totally new), Goodreads (where I’m having fun with watching the reviews pile up), and Google+ (because I’ve been on there for a long time). Plus, I’m really hoping to post a video on Youtube today, but as it turns out I’m away from home and I’m really not sure if I’ll be able to find a quiet place to film, so we shall have to see.
Remeber that the end of this blog tour I’m going to randomly draw one of the commenters and send them a $5 Amazon Giftcard, so you should totally answer that^ question, or just comment about life in general. 🙂
By the way, THANK YOU to everyone who’s been buying my book. Y’all rock.
