Summer Blog Blast Tour

Alas, this year multiple commitments made me bow out of the Summer Blog Blast Tour, organized by Chasing Ray.

(This is not the type of book promotional tour that Maureen Johnson wrote about in Blog Tours, and the Word No. It’s a blog tour that is blogger-driver and covers a variety of authors and topics and books. Colleen has been organizing it for years. The recent Unconventional Blog Tour followed Colleen’s model.)

The tour began yesterday.
