Snowy Monday!

We woke up to snow this morning. I'm supposed to work at the yoga studio today, but the early classes are cancelled and I'm more than happy to have another cup of coffee and diddle around here in Bloggiland while we see what develops.

My WOW Book Blog Tour wound up last Friday, and I can't say enough good things about Robyn and Angela, my tour organizers, or about the great bloggers who hosted me. The tour was a great way to promote my book, but the best part was making friends with the hosts and their friends and followers.

Some hosts who had originally asked for just a guest post or an interview ended up spontaneously reviewing The Christmas Village., because they enjoyed it so much! I'm especially grateful for that, because their excitement about the book is so heartfelt and sincere that their enthusiasm becomes contagious. When people review your book because they WANT to tell the world about it - well, there's not much that's better than that!

Later this week, I'll list all my hosts and their blog links. If you didn't have a chance to check them out before, you'll definitely want to pop over and make some new friends. And, if anyone out their would like me to host them here on my blog, please let me know!

Today I've got interviews at two very different blogs with rather similar names:

Megan Warburton's Storybook Love Affair
Deirdre Eden-Coppel's A Storybook World

I just love anyone who's got the word Storybook in their blog title, because you know they love books! Stop by and say hello to these lovely ladies and check out their great blogs.

Hope you all have a lovely week!


  1. Well, a snowy Monday makes us all think of Christmas, yes? Happy week to you.

  2. Thanks Rosaria - it does make us think Christmas, doesn't it? Happy week to you as well.

  3. I wish I woke up to snow! I'll go check out those interviews now.

  4. I'm glad you enjoyed your blog tour! Say, did you go out in the snow and write those words?

  5. I, too, woke up to snow which is a welcome holiday surprise. It is supposed to last through tomorrow but 40 degree temps are predicted for Wednesday and all will be gone. My northern roots appreciate the snow but my southern trans-planted roots welcome the warmth the melts soon after.

  6. Hey gals - No I didn't write the words in the snow :-)

    I was afraid to go down the hill we live on, but braved it at around 10am. Then a few minutes into town, the streets were all clear! Coming home, same thing - not snowing 5 minutes away in town, but snowing up here on the hill!

  7. I guess the snow will put you more in the holiday spirit! Goes along nicely with your book, too! I love both of the sites you mentioned.


  8. You're so lucky to wake up to snow Melissa! We're starting to embrace summer here in Australia and I just polished off a bowl of delicious ice cream!

  9. Hi Fairday! Hi Megan! The snow does put you in the right frame of mind, though, Megan, that ice cream sounds good...


Talk to me!
