Orangeberry Hall of Fame Finalist

ob hall of fame finalist [1]

OK – OK – I paid to be on the blog tour and now Disappearing in Sight is a finalist for the Hall of Fame in the literary fiction category. And they sent me the cool graphic above to display on the appropriate social media sites. Suspect – maybe? Who knows? Could be every person who paid for a tour is a finalist in one category or another. What the heck, right? Share the wealth.

Guess what? I still wouldn’t mind winning. Human nature, I suppose. Guilty as charged.

Here’s the link if you want to pop over and vote for Disappearing in Plain Sight.

Orangeberry Hall of Fame Finalist – Literary Fiction

If Disappearing in Plain Sight won, I might be in line for some cool swag. Possibly another neat graphic. Who knows. The sky is the limit and I only sound sarcastic to cover my pie-faced grin. Come on – we all love to win (even if we did pay to get in the draw).

  1. Congrats! (I’ve already voted for you too.) I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on how this went, from a cost/benefit angle and influence on sales/reviews. Any thoughts so far?

  2. That’s awesome! I pray that you do win. I have never paid to be apart of a blog tour. I never knew that existed. That’s news to me. Good luck!

    • Appreciate the support 🙂 The jury is out on whether paying to be part of a blog tour to promote a book is a good idea or not. I’ll be getting back to everyone on that point. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Best of luck to you, Francis! Loved your comment to Patrick. 🙂

    • Did you know that a greater than sign with a 3 next to it is a heart? ❤ – awesome. You learn something new everyday. It is one thing to read blogs, but to wade through comments (something I enjoy doing!) – that is going the extra mile. Thanks, Jill.

      • Well, we learn something new every day…I had no idea the power of the number 3. I love reading all of the comments, although it does take away from my writing time…but it’s worth it. 🙂

    Have just voted for you. I notice there’s only 4 finalists yet heaps more than that must have paid for the tour. I think you can smile proudly about this one 🙂

    • Thanks so much, Gemma – for the vote and the encouragement. I have just come from reading your excellent blog on writing groups. It is the 3rd blog in a row that I have tried to comment on and every time I get a notice as soon as I press post that says “can’t display this page”. So frustrating as I lose the comment and feel sure I will never say the same thing in as good a way again. This happened to me on someone else’s blog the other day as well, so I wonder if it something to do with my computer. Frustrating, anyway. I wanted to say that the level of trust you describe in your writing group is inspiring. Each of you had to take the leap to make something like that happen – good for you – and now you reap the benefits.

    You’ve got my vote, for whatever it’s worth! And from the looks of it, you have a sizable lead!

    • I just realized the contest goes on through the entire month of August. This might be like a marathon – I better not burn myself out before the finish line – LOL. Thanks for stopping by, Gwen.

  6. No different than paying to enter a writing contest, Francis. Besides, at the very least, it’s always something to enrich your resume.

    Off to vote!

    • Good point, Hazy 🙂 And I have paid to enter a couple of contests – the waiting on stuff like that is a bit excruciating. Better run and add semi-finalist to my list of accolades.

  7. Voted. You’re winning by a landslide. 😀

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