It's time for the COLORS LIKE MEMORIES blog tour extravaganza! Okay, so extravaganza might be over-doing it, but I'm excited, so that's what I'm using :) Anyhow, there are lots of awesome blogs participating in the launch of my book, and I'm so excited to share with you a little more about my book, writing, and even a little about me!
First, a word about the contest I have running throughout my tour: for all the participating blogs, I will be putting together a master list of people who comment between my blog tour dates--that's May 10th-25th (I'll leave things open for a few extra days at the end, so qualifying comments will be open until the 28th). All of these people are entered in a drawing for a $25 gift-card to either Amazon or Barnes & Nobel, as well as two additional winners will earn copies of my book. Please make it easy for me to contact you if you win. You can enter multiple times by commenting on each of the different guest blog posts. It will be international, too. Questions? Shout out in the comments!
Now, on to the incredibly awesome people who will be hosting me in this fun journey:
