Happy October! After two busy weeks in Florida, I’m back home in the gloriously autumn-ish state of Ohio, wrapped in blankets and sipping hot coffee as I blog.
The original plan had been to finish up the blog tour for Where Dandelions Grow on Saturday, but that day ended up being crazy enough that here I am today with the final tour celebrations.
Around the Internet
Maddy over at Little Bit of Sunshine posted a review of Where Dandelions Grow, and her review layout has got to be one of the best I’ve ever seen. (So pretty!)
Esther at Purposeful Learning invited me to write a guest post for her blog where y’all can learn some of the background to Where Dandelions Grow.
Maddy at Girls Living For God’s Glory wrote a sweet review.
Anna at A World Through Her Heart wrote a thorough review, complete with a book aesthetic that made my writerly heart quite happy.
Amanda at With a Joyful Noise posted a review and mini interview, which was fun to answer. She also made a quote image of the first line in the book, so that was cool. 🙂
Claire over at The Bookish Orca wrote a beautiful review that makes me happy every time I read it.
Em at Two Girls, Two Mountains posted an author interview, including the question “What did you want to be when you grew up when you were a kid?”
Samantha at Readhead With a Book wrote a fantastic review AND did an author interview complete with a LOT of gifs. Her review made me so happy I literally got tears in my eyes. Y’all need to check this one out for sure.
Zielle at The Ardent Reader also posted an author interview with questions like “What is a technique you use when developing your characters?”
And, last but not least of all, I’m excited to see that Where Dandelions Grow now has 43 reviews on Goodreads, and 25 on Amazon. Y’all are AMAZING! Today is also your last day to enter the giveaway for a $25 Amazon Giftcard. Enter it HERE.
This book has been so much fun to celebrate with y’all. Thank you for making this adventure worthwhile as you’ve read the book and encouraged me to keep going with my writing. There’s nothing like hearing that my book has touched you or entertained you to make me want to keep going when the going gets rough.
Releasing Where Dandelions Grow was also an interesting, rewarding, (and tiring!) way to celebrate my birthday which was on the 30th. Stay tuned for a “Musings” type birthday post coming up soon.
This post is the last one where the commenters are put into a drawing for a $5 Amazon Giftcard, so I’ll be choosing a random winner later on this week, so comment away! 😉
Today’s question ^ is one that I have a hard time knowing the answer to. In all likelihood I think I’d choose either Patrica St. John from the past (her books were a huge reason I wanted to become a writer, plus her life was amazing!), or Catherine Farnes (my favorite fiction author), or Brother Andrew (someone whose life has made a huge impact on me), from the present.
Thanks, folks, for hanging out! I am so grateful for each and every one of you. 🙂
