This is a big month for me. I'm doing all I can to promote my new Christmas book, The Man in the Cinder Clouds (which is a great Christmas gift idea, hint hint). Yesterday I met with a school librarian to prep for an author visit this Thursday, and later in the afternoon I visited a 4th grade class to read to the students and take them through a writing workshop on the elements of story telling.
Bane of Anubis (aka Real Name Withheld) posted a fun interview with yours truly yesterday on his blog, Bane's Blogging Blues.
Today, Michelle Davidson Argyle is hosting a guest post on the origins of Christmas stockings (as revealed through The Man in the Cinder Clouds) on her blog, The Innocent Flower.
Also hosting a posting today is Bryan Russel of The Alchemy of Writing, with my guest post on the challenges of writing a story no one in particular was asking for, and why I'm glad I followed my heart and told the story anyway.
Thursday I'm scheduled to appear on another blog, details will be provided Thursday morning...and Thursday afternoon I will be visting two more 4th grade classes and then the aforementioned library author visit in the evening. Still more clasroom visits on Friday and next week, and another library visit on Thursday the 15th.
And I'm loving every minute of it!!!
And for the other bloggers who have agreed to host a post but haven't received said post, I'm working on them, I promise!
If anyone else is interested in hosting a guest post or interview, let me know and we can coordinate a date / time.
For those that have been supporting my promotional efforts, thank you! Every voice counts...
