It’s July 5!
Only 6 days til Publication Day!!!
That’s less than a week!
(I’m just a teensy bit excited… can you tell?! 🙂 )
To keep myself from bouncing off the ceiling, I’ve got something fun to share with you today . . .
When your books go on a blog tour, you’re going to need a little entertainment! After all, there’s only so much “Are we there yet?” you want to endure!
To keep boredom from creeping in on the long trip, you can take side tours to the wonderful sites listed below and visit with the locals 🙂 You might even learn something fun while you’re there! If you comment on every post, you will definitely earn yourself a chance toward the Special Prize Raffle at the end of the tour! (The goody bag and signed books described on the kickoff post.) And if you share this, or any related post, item, photo, etc. on Social Media with the #whenyourbooks, each share will add to your chances to win Special Prize #2 at the end of the tour! (3 $25 Amazon gift cards up for grabs!)
7/1/17 – Susanna Leonard Hill – Blog Tour Kickoff
7/2/17 – Lauri Fortinos’s Frog On A Blog – Guest Post on Writing A Series PLUS a Giveaway!
7/3/17 – Jena Benton’s Of Tea And Mermaids Blog – Simply 7 Interviews with Susanna & Daniel PLUS a Giveaway!
7/4/17 – Lynn Davidson’s Polilla Writes Blog – LION book review and GAME
After the visits, you’ll probably need a snack! I always recommend a midmorning break for some sustaining chocolate, so help yourself!
Deep-Dish Double-Chocolate Breakfast Cookies
After that delicious and extremely healthful pick-me-up, you’ll probably want to watch a video!
So check out the World Premiere of the WHEN YOUR LION NEEDS A BATH Book Trailer! (And if you like it, give it a thumbs up! 🙂 )
Once the video is over, you’ll probably want to watch it again.
And again. . .
. . . and again . . . 🙂
But eventually you’ll want to try something new. And boy do I have something fun! A whole pack of LION activities! Coloring! A maze! A matching game! More coloring!
Here’s a sneak peek!
The activity pages will be on my website soon… but I asked my brilliant web manager to wait to put them up until after today’s reveal.
All that fun coloring will make you wish you had a copy of the book! So hop on over to GoodReads and enter the giveaway for a signed copy!
Have fun visiting the other tour stops, watching the video, coloring, entering the giveaway, and eating chocolate cookies! And be sure to continue with us tomorrow for an author interview and giveaway at Lynn Davidson’s Polilla Writes, and on Friday and Saturday at Vivian Kirkfield’s Picture Books Help Kids Soar for reviews, giveaways, and a special Will Write For Cookies episode which you KNOW will include a delicious recipe! 🙂
Here’s the upcoming schedule:
Don’t forget to share this post (or participating bloggers’ posts, or the book trailer, or the giveaway, or the book covers, or reviews, or a photo of your child or class reading one of the books, or anything clever and related you think up) using #whenyourbooks! Every time you post with #whenyourbooks you get an entry in the end-of-tour raffle for 3 lucky people to win a $25 Amazon gift card!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!!! 🙂
