Reflections: Book Tour Day 5

Image

 

 

This has been one great week on the blog tour for Love Illusion. The response to the book has been great. I’ve seen a lot of comments on how readers connected to the characters and how they enjoyed my descriptive writing style. It’s nice to see that all of my hard work and being a perfectionist in my writing pay off.

On day 5 of the blog tour Christy’s Written Word Love rated Love Illusion 4 stars. Christy had many positive things to say about the book, but a few things stood out to me. She loved the relationship between Lucy and Jade. She also loved how the story was told from three different point of views and how they all intertwined in the end. I’m glad that Christy loved the book so much.

Next week is week two of the blog tour. You will get to know more about me with more Q & A’s and there will be more reviews.

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for the blog tour here.

I hope that you all have a happy and relaxing Easter weekend.

 

Happy Reading and Writing,

Reflections: Book Tour Days 3 & 4

Image

 

Day 3 of the book tour started off with a Q & A as well as an excerpt on Change the Word. I enjoyed answering Laura’s questions. My favorite question that she asked was: If you could spend a day with any literary character, who would it be and why?

On Jess’s Book Blog Love Illusion got a five star review. I was happy to see this and glad that Jess thought it was such a great read. In her review Jess said that she really enjoyed the book  and was really scared of Charles. She could also see Lucy’s strength as the book progressed. These are the things that I want readers to get out of the book and I’m glad that Jess did.

There was an excerpt in Everything Books and Authors. Readers can get a sense of my writing style and what Love Illusion is all about by reading the excerpt.

I can’t wait to see what day 5 has in store for the tour. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway here.

Reflections: Book Tour Day 2

Today Love Illusion was on the Ai Love Books Blog with a review and a Q & A. Although Love Illusion got its first rating of 3 stars the review given was not bad at all. She loved my descriptive writing style as the reviewer from yesterdays blog tour stop did. I’m glad that my writing style connects with so many people and that those that read it can see what I am writing as if they were in the scene.

The Q&A was a to the point one, but again readers can get to know me a little more. My favorite question asked was “How do you come up with the idea of the book? What is your inspiration?” I like the Q & A’s because some of the questions challenge me.

Day 3 of the tour is tomorrow with another Q & A and excerpt. Today has been another great day of the tour.

Don’t forget to enter to win a $20 Amazon gift card and a copy of Love Illusion by going here.

Reflections: Book Tour Day 1

The first day being on a blog tour with Love Illusion and Chick Lit Plus has been great. I was anxious for this day to get here and I’m so glad that it finally did. To start off the day I received a 4 star review from Jersey Girl Book Reviews. I was happy to know that she loved my “rich and descriptive” writing style so much. There is also a guest post from me on the blog telling about my writing style and an excerpt of Love Illusion. Go check it out.

Chicklit Club Connect hosted another guest post of mine focusing on how social media is so important to authors. I hope that readers and other authors were informed through this guest post. I had a lot of fun writing it.

My last blog stop on the tour for today was with Authors & Readers Book Corner. It was an interview. Through this interview I hope readers got to know a little bit more about me. My favorite question of this interview was: If you could interview one of your favorite authors, who would it be? Why? If you want to find out the answer click on the link above to read through the interview.

Today was a wonderful start to the Love Illusion Blog Tour. To find out the tour schedule go here.

Stay up to date on the tour. I will be posting a reflection on each day of the tour. There will be a $20 Amazon gift card giveaway to one lucky participant at the end of the tour. I will also be giving away a copy of Love Illusion.

Happy Reading and Writing,

Love Illusion Happenings and Current Read

Last weekend I had my first interview about Love Illusion, including a little about  me on Fiction Dreams. It was a great experience and I explained what  inspired Love Illusion and some of the places in the book. Check out the interview to learn more.

This week I started writing some guest posts in preparation for the book blog tour for Love Illusion that will start in April. I have a few more to write until I am finished with the prep work. I have already completed all of the interviews. There will be giveaways, interviews, guest posts, and book reviews. I will post the blog tour schedule the closer that the time comes.  I am looking forward to receiving some great feedback during the book blog tour.

I am currently reading Revenge Wears Prada and hope to finish it over the weekend. I just finished reading The Devil Wears Prada  and I am enjoying the continuation of Andy’s journey. I can see the growth of Andy as a character in the sequel. The Plunge seems like a very realistic magazine in today’s society and something that I would like to read.

Happy Reading and Writing,

Love Illusion Happenings and Book 2 Preparations

I am getting ready for  Love Illusion’s book blog tour to start next month with Chick Lit Plus Blog Tours. On the tour will be reviews, excerpts, interviews, guest posts, and even a giveaway. I just started working on answering the interview questions today and am having a lot of fun answering them. Love Illusion has been received well and it can only get better from here.

To learn more about Love Illusion visit my Pinterest board, which is dedicated to it.

Love Illusion can be bought on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I am planning for it to be available for order in paperback in May. My author cards arrived the other day and I plan to hand these out to those who are interested in learning more about my writings as an author. I designed them myself and I am pleased with the quality of the cards.

I started the preliminary notes for book 2 over the weekend. I don’t have all of the story just yet, but I am researching what I do know. Italy will be one of the main settings of the story. I am excited about this because I am fascinated with the beauty of Italy and hope to visit there myself one day.

For the preliminary notes and location notes I am using Evernote so they will be accessible on all of my devices at any time. If I am in the grocery store all I have to do is open up Evernote on my phone and start typing away. It will automatically be synced with all of my other devices. This way I have no worries about losing my notes  and it is effortless.

I hope that you are all having a great week so far. I am enjoying reading the book that resulted in a movie, The Devil Wears Prada. I will post my thoughts on it at a later date. It is definitely an entertaining read.

Happy Reading and Writing,
