Promoting Writers and Bloggers: Cally Jackson, Gwen Gardner, Worlds Away Book Blog

Good morning, bloggers :-)
I'm surfacing from exam-marking mode to share some stuff.


Cally Jackson has just wrapped up a super cool blog tour for her debut novel, The Big Smoke. I've read this novel and really enjoyed it. It's of the New Adult variety. A Christmas prezzie idea for someone you know, maybe? ;-)







Gwen Gardner has also recently finished a blog tour for her debut novel, Givin' Up The Ghost. Gwen has always been very supportive of my own writing, so I'm really looking forward to reading her book once the craziness of end-of-year school stuff and wedding stuff is all wrapped up. It sounds like such a fun read!



The Worlds Away Book Blog is run by author Carlyle Labuschagne. She highlights new authors, new book covers, blog tours, ebook freebies, and is generally just a really sweet and awesome person :-)





Last week was a good week :-) 
I ...

  • launched a book
  • had another successful blog tour (thank you, bloggers!)
  • ran my first Goodreads Giveaway, which 1200 people entered in just one week (WOW, that seems like a lot me!)
  • won a $20 Amazon voucher in a really cool blogfest (thanks, Cally!)
  • won an ebook of The Mistaken by Nancy S. Thompson (thanks, Nancy!)

So ... back to marking those mathematics exams now ...

Gwen certainly had a whirlwind tour. And I've seen Cally around, too, so she did a great job.

Woot on all the entries on your contest! I hope to get around to holding one on GR soon. Hope your books are selling like hotcakes. :D

I think my last comment was eaten by Blogger?

Anyway, thanks so much for the plug. I really appreciate it! :-D

Last week sounded fabulous for you, lady. Way to go! I've been a bit absent from making the rounds to my fave blogs lately so had to come on over and say hi. Now I am going to go check out this fabulous book you've just released. I've been wanting to read it.

Yay, always need new books for the TBR pile! Also, glad you had a great week. Bleck to marking exams, but hope it went fast and painlessly so you can get back to fun things like writing and wedding planning! Christy
