Are You Tired of Me Yet? (Also, winners and a new giveaway!)

So I've been all in your faces for the last two weeks online with my Finding Claire Fletcher blog tour.  You're probably all sick of seeing me and my book and wondering where the heck I've been in terms of commenting on your blogs.

So first I want to say THANK YOU to all my blog tour hosts.  You guys have been so supportive and encouraging and wonderful--I am so blessed and grateful for each one of you!  Also THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by along the tour and took the time to comment!  I really appreciate it.

Second, yes, I've been remiss in my blogging duties the last two weeks.  You'd think it's because I'm busy with FCF launch stuff but actually, a lot of other things are going on.  Unfortunately, my home has been ravaged by illness the last few weeks--round and round it goes--including 2 cold/flus, one surgical procedure and one pretty scary health concern with my child.  Not to mention me being forehead-deep in edits for my second book, preparing for the holidays and oh yeah, working full time to keep the roof over our sick heads!  So I sincerely apologize and hope to catch up on all your blogs in the next week!  If I didn't respond to an email or a comment or I haven't been by your blog recently, I promise I'm not being an a world class jerk.  I'm just a bit overwhelmed by situations out of my control.  Just please know I am so grateful for each and every one of you who stop by this blog, who hosted me and who stopped along the tour and I do promise to catch up!

Third, I'd like to announce the blog tour winners!

  8. Lucky winners!! These tours can be a real haul, I know. You did great! And ah, yes, those early school years when germs are constantly brewing & you seem to spend more time sick than not. I don't miss 'em. The edits, as rough as they are, won't last much longer. There's a light down there somewhere. It's been crazy for both of us. I can't wait to get back to normal again. Love you!

  13. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
    ended up losing a few months of hard work due
    to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

  14. Asking questions are really nice thing if you are not understanding something
    fully, except this piece of writing presents good
    understanding yet.
