Blogging Wrap-up

I know I promised to take you touring last week, but writing the blogs (and working for a living) got the better of me, so today, I’ll bring you the highlights of my uber busy release week for HUNTER OF SHADOWS.

Release Day started out with a final tally at GoodReads—1148 readers signed up for a chance to win 5 free copies of HUNTER OF SHADOWS! Literary Escapism offered my look at Black Friday shopping with my new hero and heroine, Silas and Nica, and ended the day with a radio interview. Take a listen for Spoilers and insights into the series and my writing process.

Day Two, Coffeetime Romance & More invited me to spend the day chatting with visitors and sharing excerpts. It was also the launch day for my Pocket Blog Tour. SOS Aloha featured a character interview with Silas MacCreedy, the hero from HUNTER OF SHADOWS and Romancing Rakes had me stop in for a Q&A.

Day Three brought a more reviews to the surface. Here’s a sampling:

“What a heart pounding read. Silas MacCreedy is all sorts of yummy. Gideon has a way of making the reader want more, need more and then when you think you know what’s happening, TWIST!” – Romancing Rakes

“This one of the FINEST and awesome-est 5 Book worthy preternatural romantic suspense novels I’ve ever read!” – Reviews by Molly

“The characters are just really awesome and strong. Silas . . . good Lord, he could rescue me any day of the week.” – Gimme the Scoop Reviews

“This first book of a spin off series is going to satisfy on every level.” – Rendezvous, The Romance Book Store

Day Four Friday, I was a guest at Novelists, Inc. talking about “Rolling the Blog Tour Dice” (hmmm, personal experience, you think?) and was playing “I’ve Got a Secret” at Fresh Fiction discussing how to make a plot line zing by building in surprises.

Today, author buddy Diane Burton has invited me over to her blog where she’ll be asking probative questions (you gotta watch those paranormal writers who deal with aliens!) about writing. Stop over to say Hi!

Tomorrow I’ll be wrapping up my main PR push with a return visit to Literal Addiction & Book Monster Reviews. I’m interviewing Max and Cee Cee about HUNTER OF SHADOWS and changes in the By Moonlight series, then at 8:00 pm EST, I’ll be chatting at LA/BMR and will have some BIG news to reveal for the first time. You’ll want to tune in to get the Scoop. You’ll also want to stop back here for my Tuesday Tech and Tips where I’ll be giving pointers on how to set up a successful blog tour.


  1. What a busy week! You've done a great job with each of the different stops on your "tour". At each stop, I learned more about you and your In Moonlight series. Well done!

  2. A crazy, exciting week for you! This is such a fabulous book, it's no wonder you have readers vying for a free copy!
