This blog is temporarily out of order...or something like that

The other day, my agent told me I was being a dumbass.

OK, she didn't actually say that. She didn't even imply it, but she would have been right if she had.

As she lovingly pointed out, Sourcebooks has gone to a lot of trouble to arrange this rather hefty "virtual book tour" for me.

As she also pointed out, I've gone to a lot of trouble to write all the required guest blog posts and interviews.

Wouldn't it be swell if I...oh, I don't know...MENTIONED IT SOMEWHERE?

Um, yeah.

So I created that nifty little sidebar you see over there on the right. It's a list of links to guest blog posts I've written, interviews I've given, and fun little fiction pieces I've crafted in support of this virtual book tour.

There's a lot of fun stuff there, and a helluva lot more coming. In case you've ever wondered how many blog posts it's humanly possible to write in one afternoon, I've been experimenting. If I drop dead, you should count up all the posts I've sent to the publicist in the last 24 hours and then subtract one. There's your answer.

Anyway, that's my message for you today. Go check out some of the virtual book tour. Many of the sites are even doing book giveaways for Making Waves, so there's a chance to score an extra copy.

Happy reading!

I'm doing the finishing touches on my blog tour that starts next month. It's super fun, lots of work, yes, but super fun. I'll pass the word around on yours, too.

Enjoy the journey!

That sounds like a brilliant suggestion. Your agent must be a genius.

I'll bet she was also thinking that it might be nice for people to know what the most recent post is, or the dates of each post or something, so faithful followers of your blog might recognize when it's a new post and when it's not, in case they don't remember the post's title and in case they can't figure out what the heck order those posts are in. I'm just saying she *might* be thinking that.

Come on. I'll bet Michelle totally said exactly that. ;)

I love Michelle. Oh, and you, too. That is all. ;-)

This is a little too serious for my tastes.

Just kidding. On my way ...

Okay - going on a virtual blog tour of your work!

BTW I have a blog post called Naughty Ten Dollar Words up. The words are taken from Making Waves, naturally. Where else would one get that many naughty words?

Those blog tours can be a lot of fun, but they do require a LOT of writing and work on your part. I commend you, Tawna. :)
