Virtual Book Tour-First Stop!

Posted by on Jul 21, 2013 in Blog, Home Is Where The Story Starts, Uncategorized |

Welcome to the first of seven days of a virtual book tour for All I Have Needed-A Legacy for Life.  The first host for this tour is Gloria Ashby. I met Gloria at the Christian Communicators Conference last fall and she has been such an encouragement and blessing to me.  Gloria is a gifted teacher, speaker, and writer. I know I always receive a blessing whenever I am allowed to read or hear her heart. She also has a servant’s heart and is a person of integrity. I am thankful to call her friend.  Thank you for visiting my blog today and thank you, Gloria for bravely offering to be the first on this grand experiment!  Please click on the link below and you will be directed to today’s blog post!

Come Travel With Me!

Posted by on Jul 19, 2013 in Blog, Home Is Where The Story Starts, Uncategorized |

Do you like to travel? I sure do. I enjoy going new places and seeing new faces. I find that it’s the best way for me to really learn about the world. In fact, I have a difficult time really comprehending the reality of other people and places unless I see them for myself. Weird I know, but it is how God made me. When I travel I learn things I would never have thought to dream about. I gain new perspectives. I find new friends. Ones I want to return to visit again. I like to say that if I went to the moon and there were people there, I would love it and want to stay. So, I’m sure it’s not hard for you to imagine that one of my favorite things to do is travel around and speak about the writing process in schools, speak to ladies groups about legacy, and have book signings. This has proven to be a great way to let people know about my books. With the recent release of my latest book All I Have Needed-A Legacy For Life I am working hard at promotion and sales. This leads to the subject of book tours. I would love to be able to do an honest-to-goodness book tour. However, with the price of gas, our scheduled move, and the fact that I am simultaneously sprinting to the finish line with the revisions on my third children’s mystery, that is NOT going to happen. Sad, but true fact. What’s a girl to do? Well, here is the scoop. I learned recently about something called a virtual book tour, or sometimes they are called blog tours. The idea is that other bloggers host my blogs for several days. Every day I will post the link on my sites to the other blog site my post is visiting. You click the link, and voila, you are traveling to another blog. You get to see content from me on someone else’s site. Maybe, just maybe you will even read some of their previous posts. Perhaps—like me when I travel—you will gain a new perspective, make a new friend, or learn something new! My blog tour starts this Sunday, July 21st and will continue all week through Saturday, July 27th. It will be occurring on both, and So, pack your virtual bags and get ready for this travel opportunity! Hope to see you...
