ROAD TRIP BOOK TOUR: PART ONE* (PLUS a CONTEST!)

For the first time in my book touring life, I am going on a “road trip” instead of flying, training, busing, and rental carring. The Danika Road Trip is a special kind of road trip. Be forewarned when travelling with me. If I see a sign in Nebraska for the Pony Express Station or in Arizona for indigenous cliff dwellings, I will make a spontaneous side trip. World’s largest ball of twine? I’m there. If I get off schedule, I will drive until I can’t drive any more and sleep in my car. I bring camping gear in case there’s a mesa I have to climb and get tuckered out. I WILL take the scenic route if one is offered. I WILL take the road less travelled (I almost got stranded in the middle of New Mexico when a sudden rain storm turned the dirt road into a slick mud...

Omnibus Release Week! Drawings and Freebies!

This week marked the release of the print version of the Faerie Tales from the White Forest Omnibus. (*See how you can get a free ebook version of Book One at the bottom of the post) The ebook version of the Omnibus contains all the same goodies as the print version, but for those of you who have a romantic relationship with print books, the print version really is beautiful. And thick! It’s a book AND a doorstop. And possibly a weapon.     In honour of the launch, I am giving away a $25 Amazon gift card through midnight 9/25. a Rafflecopter giveaway If you win, there is no obligation to buy the book. (Really!) If you would like to purchase a copy outright, however, you can order one from any bookstore or locate on Amazon: OMNIBUS...

Children’s Book Week Winners & Another Giveaway Squeaks in

Last week was Children’s Book Week, and authors toured, story-told (that’s a word!), gave books away, and otherwise celebrated children’s literature in bookstores, schools, homes, and libraries. I only managed to visit about 8 blogs on the Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop, but still managed to win a copy of An Unstill Life by Kate Larkindale, which looks like a great read. I had a giveaway for the Hop and I’d like to thank everyone who entered and tweeted and posted and face booked. There were far more entries than I expected! Congratulations to the winners: Sherrie Peterson Cheryl Booth Rogers I gave them both a choice of prizes and they both selected to receive the first 3 books in the WF series, which means that I still have a...

Children’s Book Week: Ides of May White Forest Extravaganza

Next week, Children’s Book Week, is going to be a pretty exciting all around in White Forest land. First, I’ve joined a BLOG HOP, which I don’t often do. But it’s a Blog Hop Giveaway during Children’s Book Week, so how could I turn that down? Never Blog Hopped before? Basically, you go to a list of blog links from authors, book bloggers, and others who are GIVING PRIZES AWAY all at the same time (who doesn’t like prizes?). And you hop from one to the next adding your name to the drawings. If you like children’s lit, what have you got to lose? The hop runs from Monday, May 12 through Sunday, May 19, so you’ve got plenty of time to get around to all the blogs. And you’ll need it, because as of this morning,...
