You already knew I wasn’t here today. I’m off visiting with Patricia Sands and Ashley Stoyanoff, but my social calendar has filled up a wee bit more. I’ve been invited to Carol E. Wyer’s Surfing in Stilettos Blog Party and how could I refuse such an invitation?
So I’ve narrowed it down to two pairs of party shoes and am whizzing back across the pond to join Carol at her Blog Party at www.facing50withhumour.blogspot.co.uk Come and join me for some fantastic prizes, surprises, and desirable shoes.
Now which ones should I wear?
Or perhaps these?
I’m back in Canada today and whilst not in my hometown, I am in my home province – Ontario. My first stop is at fellow loveahappyending.com Patricia Sands’ Everyone has a story… blog.
After that I hop onto the motorway and head east where I stop in for a visit with Ashley Stoyanoff at her blog The World of Ashley Stoyanoff who I met through Goodreads. I won a copy of her book in a blog giveaway and couldn’t resist asking if she would be willing to host me on my tour. She graciously accepted to host me on her blog today.
Tomorrow I’m back in England with Mandy Baggot but if you’ve missed any of my daily stops so far, here’s a recap…

Carol E. Wyer at Facing 50 with Humour
Today Carol E. Wyer is hosting me on her Facing 50 with Humour Blog! I’ve seen her guest hosts and they’re sure to bring a chuckle! I just hope mine can live up to the zany humour that’s been there before me.
And while I’m hanging out over at Carol’s blog, she’s at Celtic Connexions! So please drop by both places and see what mischief the pair of us have gotten up to.
Yes that’s right! Another review! This time by the lovely Shaz Goodwin. In addition to her review, there’s a little something extra, not to mention another givewaway. Today some lucky person can win A Shadow in the Past mouse pad!

Tomorrow I’m over at Carol E Wyer’s Facing 50 with Humour blog and she’s here at Celtic Connexions! See you then!
I’m back on the eastern side of the Atlantic Ocean today visiting first with Peggy Stanton who is interviewing my characters, Sarah and Robert. Now Peggy herself, is quite the character so it should be a lively time. Oh, I do hope those three behave themselves… Anyway, you can catch the interview at Peggy Stanton – Looking Out.
Then it’s back up to Bonnie Scotland and Janice Horton. We first met “virtually” when Janice launched Bagpipes & Bullshot and we quickly became fast friends. So far we remain virtual friends only but hopefully, we can rectify that in the coming year.
Not as such. But, the three blogs I’m visiting today are all in my hometown of Brockville. I need an easy day like this to rest up after the hectic schedule I set myself up for. Yeesh… wouldn’t you think I could have been a bit more coordinated rather than jetting all over from point A to B and back again? Over and over again. Oh well, at least I’m only travelling virtually. If it were for real, I would have the UK and European stops together and the same with the North American ones.
So where am I today? Well, three members of my local writers’ group – Writers’ Ink – have agreed to host me.
My first stop today is with Joe Mossman. Back in January, Joe and I were guests on the local cable company’s program Reader’s Corner. You can see his interview with me on his blog joe-mossman.blogspot.com. Hope Joe has the coffee on. After my hectic schedule, I’ll need the caffeine jolt to get me kick-started this morning.
My second stop is at Chris Hanna’s My adventure in becoming at writer blog.
My last stop is with Dorothy Bush. She’s invited me for high tea. Hmm… wonder what we’ll be having? No coffee at this time of day, but a tipple of something just in keeping with the occasion. Dorothy blogs at Twisting in the Wind. Maybe if she hasn’t put her motorcycle away for the season, she’ll take me out for a short ride.
Drop back tomorrow and see what part of the world I’ll be visiting.
Today truly brings in the International element into the title of my blog tour! Two countries – an ocean apart – in the same day!
I’m starting out this morning after making the short trip down from Scotland to be CentreStage with the lovely Nicky Wells.
And from there, I hop a flight to Canada where I’m Maureen Fisher’s guest at her blog Books by Maureen. Maureen is a fellow member of the Ottawa Romance Writers’ Association so I suspect her questions will be skewed in that direction. I hope they aren’t too difficult to answer.
Okay, I’m not sure if I should be excited about my first review or quaking in my boots. This is all so new to me, I have no idea what to expect. So, follow me over to Nikki Bywater’s Books4U and read her impressions of my debut novel – A Shadow in the Past.
Day 3 and I’m being interviewed by fellow loveahappyending.com author Stephanie Keyes as part of her Fall Fantasy Author Series. It should be great fun. I can tell you she asked me some pretty tough questions.
The launch day party is over and all is well. Perhaps a few sair heids amongst the partygoers but otherwise everyone seems to be fairly decent shape.
Good thing because today one lucky person who visits Rebecca Emin’s blog is going to win A Shadow in the Past tote bag!
Isn’t it a thing of beauty! Measuring 47 cm x 39 cm x 12 cm, it’s big enough to carry all your important purchases. I recently used mine when I attended Scene of the Crime and it was large enough to hold an umbrella, sweater (being prepared for changing weather), our registration kits, my “Menopause is Murder” fan, the five books I bought and my digital SLR camera and case.

And after my visit with Rebecca, I’m jetting across the ocean to stop in and visit with author Maggie Jagger in the beautiful Canadian province of Quebec where we’ll talk about writerly things and being fellow members of the Ottawa Romance Writers’ Association.
