The Blog Tour for ‘Falling to Pieces’ has come to an end today.
The giveaway winners have been selected and announced on my FaceBook page.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the bloggers for their participation. I’d also like to thank everyone who’s supported me and helped me get this far. Without all of you I wouldn’t have succeeded.
It’s been a very difficult few weeks for me, I’ve started ‘Falling Apart’, but I’ve found it very difficult to promote and write at the same time. So, You’ll be glad to know that I’m giving the promotion a rest in order to concentrate on my writing. I know those of you out there that love ‘Falling to Pieces’ will spread the word for me.
I’ve done so very well, and I’m over the moon that so many people love my characters and my writing. I’ve had very few negative comments and didn’t pick up anything less than 3* reviews throughout the tour. I’m also lucky enough to have an average rating of 4.60 on Goodreads! That is totally amazing and I’m over the moon. Amazon.com and co.uk hosts only 5* reviews. I’m a lucky girl!
Of course, not everyone will love ‘Falling to Pieces’. It’s been compared to ‘Twilight’ which was a bit stingy. Not because I don’t love ‘Twilight’, I actually do, but I can’t see the likeness personally. I spoke to a friend about it to get her opinion, she helpfully said “What! Twilight? Are they mad? It’s much more like ‘True Blood'” at which point I went outside and banged my head off the brick wall! I think ‘Falling to Pieces’ is like, well…’Falling to Pieces’. :D.
So whats next…
I’m currently writing Chapter Three of ‘Falling Apart’. I’ll be getting my head down on that one now the tour has finished. If you see me on FaceBook for lengthy periods feel free to shout at me “SHOULDN’T YOU BE WRITING!?” That will jolt me out of my stupor. Hopefully.
Theres a lot going on next week, I’ll be interviewing my favourite author Christopher Buecheler on this very blog. They’ll also be an amazing joint giveaway, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
On the 5th of September I’m doing my first ever book signing! In addition to that my baby boy is starting school! It’s going to be an emotional day.
On the 11th of September I’m appearing on a radio show called ‘Freshly Booked’ hosted by the lovely Tricia Anderson. The show is part of the Writers Online Network, and can be found at Blog Talk Radio. It will be aired at an earlier time because I need my beauty sleep! 1700 CST or 2300 GMT.
In October I start a BA (Hons) in Humanities with a pathway to creative writing. It’s my dream to teach people, so it must be done. This is why I expect ‘Falling Apart’ to take me a little longer to write.
You guys are amazing and I love anyone who supports me in any way shape or form. Thanks from the bottom of my heart <3.
