Exciting schedule for July!

Today I have exciting news for you about my blog schedule for July. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, I will have fun things happening just a little different from my usual schedule.

I am involved in two blog tours for an author who has THREE picture books being released this month. THREE! (can you say WOW!) A blog tour is the same idea as a traditional book tour except it is virtual. Instead of going from bookstore to bookstore or library to wherever the author can arrange to build awareness about her/his new book, it’s done on the Internet. On other people’s blogs there can be reviews, interviews, other fun things to promote the book, and that’s what I’m doing. I’m devoting most of my blog posts in July to Susanna Leonard Hill, her three new books, her two illustrators – Daniel Wiseman and Erica Sirotich – and other fun promotional things.

Oh, and did I mention giveaways? No? Well, there are going to be giveaways!  Yes! Somebody, and it could be YOU, is going to win a book! Actually, three of you are each going to win a book. Three new books, three winners! And Susanna has offered to sign and personalize them for you! You could win a book for a child you know and love, or for a school library, or your local public library, or for someone on the other end of the spectrum who still just loves books but now needs them to be much simpler and easier to read … with lots of pictures. (Picture books aren’t just for kiddies, you know.)

So, do come back Tuesdays, Thursdays, Sundays, and any day in between for fun stuff. Please leave comments, enter the draws, send your friends here, too, and share about all this on your social media. Let’s give a huge show of support for these creatives.  Thank you so much!

Do you ever help promote books by mentioning them on your social media?

About my giveaways – I’ve been thinking …

Hello, everyone!

My apologies for not posting for almost two weeks. I’ve been  working on the Reading For Research Month challenge – and still reading books on the list as our local library brings them in for me, handling my week at Dad’s, and sick with bronchitis since the last week of March. Because of the latter, during my week of caregiving I’ve not hung around Dad as much and when my respite arrives I go home and usually nap – whether the nap was intended or not. I’m very grateful for the help I have.

Now I have a pondering to share with you.

I’ve observed that very few of my readers are entering the monthly draw for my giveaways. I hope more of you will leave comments to have your name in the draw as I’m planning to have larger items when I can, and I would like to know that you are interested. It would be wonderful if you’d pass the word along, too, on Twitter or Facebook, or wherever you socialize online. Thank you.  🙂

Please check my post about the giveaway for this month, and put your name in by leaving a comment. The day is coming up this week for someone to win!  Comment by April 13.

This week I’ll be writing more – or, that is the plan. I have a lot of catching up to do for 12×12, the online critique group I’m in, and final details in the newsletter (Valley Sunshine) I am closing down after many years of publishing. Plus, I have updates to do here on my blog, especially with regards to all the books I’ve read lately. (note my Books I Read widgets and my “Books I read this year” link –> “books I read in 2016” page.)

Thank you for being part of my life. I appreciate you!

What projects or plans do you want to work on most right now? Are you feeling sidetracked?
