For the next 5 days, I’ll be touring on blogs — and you can come along!
On some days, I’ll be answering tough questions about writing, my own writing life, and how and why I wrote What You Don’t Know Now. On others, bloggers will review the novel. (*chews nail*). Or I may write a guest post ( Bridey herself is scheduled to make an appearance). And there’s a chance to win a prize — an e-book, an autographed softcover, and a CD of Italian love songs.
The songs won’t be sung by Alessandro, though. Because fiction.
Our first stop (2/24/2016) is on the blog Words Read and Written. Aussie blogger Jodi Llewellyn asks me some interesting questions. Here’s a taste:
- How do you find or make time to write?
Once I got married and started having kids ( I had four boys under eight years old), writing time was restricted to naptimes and after 9pm. I’ve always been night writer. I had an unusual life for 20+ years — my former husband played the PGA Tour, and life was all about his career. I was a stay-at-home-mom who started writing humor and essays freelance, then I wrote features for magazines. Once my marriage broke up, I had to “get a job” and my focus had to be on managing to keep a roof over my boys’ heads and my own. Life and work took up my days, so nights became my writing sanctuary.
For the full Q&A – check out Jodi’s blog.
The cool thing about a blog tour is that you get to know other readers and bloggers out there, and can discover more books you might be interested to read. And you can share with your friends.
I wish I could be there personally to answer questions — but technology will have to do. I’d love some cyber-company.
