Blog Tour Prize WINNERS!

May 15, 2012

Sorry it took me so long to get to this part. Let me assure you, it had nothing to do with a lack of appreciation for those who stopped by and said hi or participated in the conversation on the blog tour. You guys rock my world.

I promised the following prizes for two lucky commenters:

A hat knit by me. (Color will vary.)

Also knit by me, a sort of random (let’s call it a coaster) knit piece where I tried to knit the symbol of the IIC, the school Jacob is taken to early in the book. Opinions vary as to whether it looks like what I intended it to. (OK, by that I mean that no one but me thinks it looks like what I intended it to.) So if you were wondering, it’s a galaxy cupped in a hand. This piece is less useful than ridiculous. But, hey, the winners will be two of exactly three people who have one. So, if I ever become famous, there you go, it’s something weird, but special.

So, who did pick as the winners?

Catherine Lee: Comments all over the place but the one that got the win was on Lisa Haselton’s Reviews and Interviews.)

Debby: Comment on Beyond Romance.)

Congrats, ladies! I’ll be in touch about sending out your prizes. Thanks again to everyone who stopped by, to the fabulous hosts, to those who reviewed the book, those who bought it, to Goddess Fish Promotions  and in general to anyone and everyone. 😉

Blog Tour Wrapup and PRIZES!

May 11, 2012

Well that’s it, folks. Show’s over. Well, the official blog tour, at least.

One (semi) unexpected stop this week was my success story over on Miss Snark’s First Victim. If you’ve never been over there, WHY NOT? It’s an amazing support network for aspiring authors and a place where readers can weigh in and help new authors reach their dreams. I’m only one of dozens of people who give credit to Authoress for helping them get where they are now, and there will no doubt be many more. She’s a wonderful person, and I have on good authority that she’s really cute too, behind that red hat.

Also a new review went up yesterday:

Michelle Ristuccia: Review on #sffwrtcht

Then there were the official blog tour stops:

Interview on Welcome to My World of Dreams

Interview & Review on The Reader’s Roundtable – Infinity and Beyond

Interview on It’s Raining Books

Guest post on Beyond Romance: The Challenges of Writing Science Fiction

Interview on Wendi Zwaduk

Interview at Kacey’s Konnections

Drawing for the winners of the blog tour PRIZES is coming soon, so hurry over to one of the stops and leave a comment so you’ll be entered too!

And that’s it! There will be a few more things popping up here and there, including a live interview on the popular #sffwrtcht June 27, 2012, at 9:00pm Eastern which I’m very nervous and excited about.

Congrats to the WINNERS!

Unexpected stop(s) on the blog tour this week… (Updated)

May 4, 2012 I won’t pretend this was an unwelcome surprise, in fact, it’s very nice to see that I’m not alone in the exciting new world of (alleged) trademark infringement and a general sense of “huh?” in response to this fun situation:

Read more about it from boingboing here.

And then The Passive Voice addressed it as well:

An Author Receives a Cease and Desist Letter

But all that excitement aside, there’s still a blog tour going on, and here’s the weekly roundup:
