Okay, so yeah, that's a little obnoxious but my plan is just to leave this post up till the end of the blog tour so if people meander over to my blog, they'll know where to go to enter the giveaway!
Anyway, today is the big day! RELEASE DAY! Today my first novel, Finding Claire Fletcher, my book baby, 8 years in the making, is being released into the world!
I can't quite believe it!
So let's see. First, I want to thank all of you. I've leaned heavily on this writing community during the last couple of years of my journey. I've made some amazing friends and met some truly brilliant writers. I've found commiseration and inspiration and above all, support and encouragement. So thank you. Thank you for stopping by and for all the kind words you've left.
Thanks to my hosts who have so graciously given up space on their blogs to talk about my book. You guys are the best, and I am humbled by your enthusiasm and generosity!
Before I go any further, here are the purchase links. FYI the paperback is $16.99 and the ebook is $3.99.
