Blog Tour

Like many writers, I recently made the decision to promote my book through a blog tour. I have no idea yet how successful this will be, but I'm hoping to get exposure and possibly sell a few more copies of my middle grade novel, Ghost for Rent.

So far, I've been interviewed by Katie Hines at http://katiehines.blogspot.com/ and Joyce Adair at http://writingthedanger.com and Joyce Anthony at http://joyce-anthony.blogspot.com/ If you get a chance, stop by and read what they and I have to say.

Coming up soon will be reviews and interviews by Chris Speakman, Barbara Ehrentreu, Jan Verhoeff, Deb Hockeberry, Jo Linsdell, Beverly McClure, Nancy Sharpe, Lizette Brody and Carol Amato.

As you know, I've hosted a few writers here on One Writer's Journey. I know how difficult it can be to come up with unique questions to ask. There seem to be limited questions when so many people are reading and reviewing the same material. I am grateful to those people who have volunteered their time to support me in this project.

If you have a blog, do consider helping out your fellow writers by offering to review their works. In turn, they may do the same for you. We need to help each other as much as we can. Don't think of yourself as being in competition with others, think of them as your co-workers.

Here are a few places you can purchase Ghost for Rent:

  1. I love hosting other writers on A BIBLIO PARADISE, and I love visiting other blogs on blog tours. I find both are fun and refreshing. I always learn something, no matter which side of the blogging screen I'm on.

  3. Penny,
    My passion and my work revolve around assisting people in stepping into their genius. I have an internet radio show where I interview my students and mentors who I believe are living and expressing their genius. Would you be interested in being on the show to talk about the creative process? You can plug your book as well, however the focus is more process oriented. You can get a feel for the show by going to http://megansillito.com Go to the archived shows and check it out. We have a bunch of fun. Good Luck with your tour

  4. Megan, I will check out your show and see how if I can learn how it works. I've never done a talk show before. It sounds a little scary. I've always been more of a writer than a talker. Thanks for asking me. I'll let you know.
