After Midnight Blog Tour

So I'm setting up a large blog tour that will kick off about a week before AFTER MIDNIGHT'S release on September 30 and I have to ask you...have I lost my mind? Honestly, I'm worried I have. So far I've scheduled 29 30 blog stops!

I know, I know, a lot of authors have done bigger tours than that, but I'm not a lot of authors. Let me tell you, if I sit and think about it too much, I hyperventilate. 29 30 blog stops means 29 30 unique blog posts I have to write. 

wheeze.
  gasp.
Does anyone have a brown paper bag?

Seriously, I'm one of those authors who struggles with every post and I'm going to write twenty-nine thirty of them?!

deep breath.

Sorry. Get a little freaked out there for a minute. Back on topic here... I'm putting together this blog tour, brainstorming a few exciting giveaways (you won't want to miss these, trust me), and overall attempting to make a big splash with the release of my hot contemporary, After Midnight. I'm so excited about this book! I'm already receiving positive feedback:


"You will fall in love with Isabeau and Noah and share their angst as they fight their way to love. A great read."

"...a beautiful love story that will long live in my memory."

And...


"...I am blown away by this story. I wish there was a rating higher than a 5. I would give it you to."


I can't tell you how happy I am that readers/reviewers are loving Isabeau and Noah's story as much as I do. Now all I have to do is get my act together and write those 29 30 blog posts. Oh, and prepare for my Twitter release party, order more swag, organize the author donations I'm putting together for two of my prize packages... I'd better stop before I panic again. :-)

Stop back and check out all the give-aways I have planned, will you? I'd love to see some of these prizes go to you.


Thirteen years—that's how long Isabeau Montgomery has been living a lie. After an automobile accident took her mother's life, Izzy hid herself away, surviving the only way she knew how. Now she is happy in her carefully reconstructed life. That is until he walks through the door of her bar...

Black Phoenix singer/front man Noah Clark came to Long Island City with a goal—one that doesn't include an instant, electric attraction to the dark-haired beauty behind the bar. Coaxing her into his bed won't be easy, but he can't get her pale, haunted eyes nor her skill on the piano out of his head.

Can Noah help Isabeau overcome the past? Or will her need to protect her secret force her back into hiding and destroy their chance at happiness?

phew! No sleep ever. Don't know how you even contemplate the blog tour!

Sarah Grimm said...

Nancy-

I try not to think about it. :-)

Then I remind myself that I really, really want to let everyone know about this book. The book of my heart, you know?

And, yes, one of my blog topics will be explaining that statement. *grin*

My hat is off to you, my friend. I'm sorta in awe, Sarah. Not only of your incredible talent, but your ideas, motivation and your determination to succeed despite the lack of time available to all struggling writers. I CANNOT WAIT for this release. I'm so, so excited -- and have no doubt this book is going to skyrocket you to heights I only dream about. Congratuations!!
