The Doctor Is In

Writing is a cruel business. And it's easy to get the blues. To fight back, I've earned my Doctorate in Punchology. 

Try to sucker punch me, will ya? Go over and visit Lia Booke's blog and see what I do to keep my spirits up. Then tell me your tips on how you fight depression. After all, a good doctor is always willing to learn something new.

To see where I've been and where I'll be, check out the Blog Tour Page, updated daily for your browsing pleasure.


How do you like the blog tour so far? There is still more to come. If you think I was funny so far, you ain't seen nuthin' yet.

Blog tours are strange beasts, aren't they? They help the author by introducing her to new readers on the host blog. But the host blog is also a good resource for the author's regular readers. (That's you!)

As I go from blog to blog, be sure to hang around a while, see what else is on that blog. You might like it. And then you can thank me later for introducing you to someone fabulous.

Blog tours are win-win scenarios for everyone. It's a golden opportunity to expand your network--which I'll talk about in greater detail later at another guest post. 


Okay, today is the very last day for the Writing With The Stars Contest. Will I make it to Round 2? Who knows? But we'll give it the college try.

I'll let you know as soon as I hear anything. No matter what happens, I am very pleased with the results. I learned a lot from my mentor, Terri Brisbin, and for that I am immensely grateful.

I wish I could have voted more for you! I'm nervous to find out who advances. How soon will we know?

Heading over to your blog tour post.

Thanks, Marianne. :)

I'm not worried about it at all because it's no longer in my hands. I gave it my best shot and truth be told I have a lot of confidence in my writing.

I'm pretty sure I can tell a good tale, so I hope that will be enough to carry me through.

No matter what happens, I will definitely post the results as soon as I get them.

Thanks for being so supportive.

Hi Maria! So glad you're visiting my blog today (you're my first guest!). You're definitely right about blog-tours being win-win for everyone.

Anyway, good luck with the WWTS Contest! I'm rooting for ya! ^_^
