The Time Travel Journals Blog Tour Kickoff

My alarm is set. Tomorrow, September 1, The Time Travel Journals: Shipbuilder goes live. It will be available on Amazon (print and Kindle), and Smashwords (all eformats, including Kindle).

To celebrate, I’m throwing an online progressive party. Starting here, the  party will commence with my own blog post, featuring pretty pictures of my book for sale. With links!

From here, the party proceeds to other blogs on the interwebz. These bloggers have generously donated their space to spread the word about Shipbuilder. They are all wonderful writers themselves, so check out what they have to offer! Allow me to introduce them, along with the date I’m appearing on their blog:

September 2 – Patty Jansen
Author of His Name in Lights, The Far Horizon, and many other excellent stories.
2011 Writers of the Future finalist.

September 3 – Amy Raby
2011 RWA Golden Heart finalist for her novel, Assassin’s Gambit.

September 4 – Anna Kashina
Author of Ivan and Marya, a dark romantic fantasy based on Russian folklore.

September 5 – Darke Conteur
Darke writes paranormal fantasy. Look for her own blog tour, coming to this very space in November.

September 6 – Carole Ann Moleti
Carole lives and works in New York City, explaining her love of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and space opera. She’s completed two of three novels in her Cape Cod paranormal romance series and is nearing completion of her gritty urban fantasy novel Boulevard of Bad Spells and Broken Dreams.

September 7 – Meredith Morgenstern
Meredith is writing an urban fantasy, and also blogs about wine for moms, which seems quite practical to me…

September 8 – Sue Ann Bowling
Author of Homecoming and Tourist Trap

I will post a notice here each day, with a link to that day’s blog. Please, leave comments here or at the host’s blog, and let us know what you think. And don’t forget to buy a book!

Must Have Give-Aways!
Ships are launched with a bottle of champagne. My book is about a ship, so…

Actually, perhaps it’s best if I don’t try to mail anyone a bottle of champagne. But how about a free book?

Throughout the blog tour, I’ll keep track of everyone who leaves a comment on any of the blogs (including this one) and enter them into a drawing. At the end of the tour, I’ll pick three winners, each to receive an autographed copy of The Time Travel Journals: Shipbuilder.

So read on! Comment!

    Slainte! and Rath Oraibh!

  2. Marlene, never was the CWC motto more appropriate: Sail On! Congratulations on your book launch. I’m looking forward to reading the finished story because you are a terrific teller of tales.

  3. Wow! You are ambitious. I particularly like the idea of “traveling” around various blogs. It goes with your theme. Aline

  4. Mazel tov! I know my blog is along way different lines, but if you want to extend the tour you can add it to your itinerary.
