Tristi Pinkston, blogger extraodinaire, set up a blog tour for me during the month of December. Rather than give the whole months' worth of stops, I think I'll do it by weeks. That should complicate an already complicated month, but that's just the kind of gal I am.
This is an impressive lineup of bloggers. I've been to each of them and I'm blown away with how articulate and well written all the posts are. These are serious bloggers.
As you check out each of these blogs, I hope you'll sign up to be a follower. And, if you're not already a follower of Liz Sez, I hope you'll click on the 'Join This Site' button on the sidebar.
Heidi Thomas, novelist and Willa Award winner already highlighted Cold River on her blog. You can find it at http://heidiwriter.wordpress.com/2011/11/28/liz-adairs-new-novel-cold-river-a-hot-read/#comment-2876
Mary Trimble, another award winning novelist (she was a Spur finalist, and I have Spur envy, as Counting the Cost was entered in that competition), reviewed Cold River on her blog around Thanksgiving: http://marytrimble.blogspot.com/2011/11/book-review-cold-river.html
Julie Coulter Bellon, author of six romantic suspense novels, was another Thanksgiving reviewer. You can find hers at http://ldswritermom.blogspot.com/2011/11/thanksgiving-book-reviews-cold-river.html
Cami Checketts, another romantic suspense author, is doing a book giveaway on her blog today. Hop over there and sign up! http://camicheckettsbooks.blogspot.com/2011/11/cold-river-book-giveaway.html Cami solved a problem for me. Cold River has been nominated for a Whitney Award, and the process is that the chairman asks the author to declare what genre the book should be judged in as it goes to the committee who will winnow all the nominees down to five finalists. In this case the question was, is Cold River a suspense or romance? I wrote it as a romance, but the description on Amazon makes it sound more like a suspense. Thanks, Cami, for validating my intentions.
Jenny Moore also has a review of Cold River posted on her blog at http://www.shesgotthewritestuff.blogspot.com/2011/12/cold-river.html
On December 2, Lynn Parsons will review Cold River. I'll be interested to see what she has to say, as there's educational stuff--Dyslexia and an inventive way of teaching math--in Cold River. Lynn, in addition to being the co-author of (dis)Abilities and the Gospel: A Guide for Families and Teachers, is an educational diagnostician. Lynn's blog is at http://lynndeniseparsons.blogspot.com/
