Friday Fun! (New Book Blogger/Bookstore Opportunity and Blog Tour Updates)

Hello my lovely readers!

This was honestly a very long week for me.  Work has been very busy, and I had a couple of stressful personal situations come up.  No worries though. All is well now. 🙂

*knock on wood*

I’m glad I planned ahead and took a vacation day this week.  I went for a very long walk along the Charles just taking in nature and the sounds of summer around me.  Then I went home and baked muffins. By wisely taking downtime moments like this throughout the week, my stress levels weren’t quite so bad.

In any case, today I just want to let my fellow book bloggers know of a new opportunity.  Little Red Reviewer and her friend Darkcargo have taken it upon themselves to start an awesome project entitled Bookstore Bookblogger Connection.  This is entirely a labor of love in which they are attempting to match up book blogger reviews (currently of just scifi and fantasy) to bookstores to be add to their displays.  It’s good publicity for the book bloggers, and a neat new way for bookstores to find books to recommend.  See Little Red Reviewer’s announcement post here, and the official Bookstore Bookblogger Connection website here.

Finally the weekly update for the Waiting For Daybreak blog tour!  This week was slightly busier.

Ellie Hall graciously hosted a guest post in which I explain how the tagline for the tour, “What is normal?” relates to the book.

Eva’s Sanctuary interviewed me. Among other things, you can hear many more details about my busy medical librarian job.

Eva’s Sanctuary also offered a review, stating, “This is a unique zombie tale, but well worth the read. I think you will be quite surprised.”

Last but not least, today Lily Element posted a review, suggesting it to readers, “if you want something different and enjoy zombie books.”

That’s it for this week. Happy weekends all!

      My pleasure! It’s an AWESOME idea!!

      Lol, and I’m glad you enjoyed my submissions and didn’t feel *coughs* inundated. I haven’t gone through my fantasy reads yet. That should only add about 2 or 3 more though since scifi is more what I’m about. 😀

    As always I’m glad to see the blog tour is progressing well. I too have been rather stressed out this week and agree trying to make time to chill out can actually be quiet hard! Planning a day off was a great idea. I also did some baking this week! I think it is very calming, I made a pretty decent fruit cake considering I’d never made it before 🙂

      Healthy stress management is one of my big big goals this year. I can really relate to everything you’ve been saying about it over on The Bookworm Chronicles. Hopefully we’ll both continue to improve with that!
