Blog Tour and Jelly Fish

P1070511

My first blog tour for Disappearing in Plain Sight started yesterday (July 3rd) with a kick off on Peace for Pieces, Pandora Poikilos’ blog.

Doing this blog tour isn’t what I thought it would be – so far. I have to qualify that because it is early. I am getting quick responses to my numerous emails, so that is definitely something. It’s a bit of a learning curve, figuring out links and schedules and being part of a Rafflecopter draw.

Today (Thursday, July 4th) you can look for me at Mommy Adventures with Ravina for an author interview. I’m quite a ways down the page – something I wasn’t expecting, but still – the interview is good. I was hoping the Rafflecopter draw would be promoted, but I can’t find it. You can follow the direct link above to take part.

Update to this post: The Rafflecopter draw link was on the post all along but for some reason, no matter how many times I checked, I couldn’t see it. Obviously something to do with my server or system. It is also not uncommon for popular blog hosts to post several times per day, so it makes sense I was further down the page. My sincere apologies to Mommy Adventures with Ravina for the false information and for the fact that I sounded like I was complaining. I thought I was getting the hang of this whole touring thing, but back to the drawing board for me.

The tour lasts all week and there are suppose to be different appearances each day. I’ll keep you informed as we go.

On the subject of my own June blog anniversary prize draws, the entrants have been listed, each name put on a small square of paper and deposited in the appropriate pink bowl (whew – that was a lot of work, folks). I will set the actual draw up today and you can look for winners to be announced in my next post, with pictures of the actual draw process starring granddaughters – Emma and Brit. Should be cute and fun for the winners.

Who doesn’t love jellyfish? Right? Check out the Jelly Fish tanks at the Vancouver Aquarium this summer.

  1. I blog at Mommy Adventures and I included your Rafflecopter at the bottom of the book feature I posted for you. The direct link is http://www.ravinaandreakurian.com/2013/07/disappearing-in-plain-sight-by-francis.html

    I have also linked back to your tour organiser at my blog header. My blog receives more than 5,000 views a month and I do post more than once a day.

    I posted your posts in the morning which is when I receive most traffic. If you prefer to have top posts, I think it is best to inform the tour co-ordinator. Although from my experience, this does not usually generate the most clicks.

    • Andrea – I’m sorry the way my post comes out sounding. Like I’m having a hissy fit or something. I’m having a hard time getting access to the various sites – an issue with my server no doubt. And I should have re-read all the fine print before the tour started. By the end of the week when it all ends, I’m sure I’ll have it all down pat.

  2. Your granddaughters are adorable! Hope your blog tours brings lots of new interest in your book!

I would really love to hear what you think about this post . . .
