Hey Ashlyn,

Good luck with the book and the blog tour. I have my first one going on right now. Started yesterday. They can be crazy and a lot of haard work, but I'm hoping it will be fun too. When it's all done, I think I will blog about the experience and what I would have done different.

Hey if you "nuts" Ash, what does that make us , you so very devoted fans.......

Have a great tour


Hot Ash Romance Novels said...

LOL. Thanks, Monica! I hope I can count on you to hold the group's attention with your pictures of hotties while I'm off gallivanting.


Hot Ash Romance Novels said...

Congrats to you too, KJ! I'd be interested in reading your summary.


Jina Bacarr said...

You're right on target, Ashlyn, with your blogging and book signing. Yes, it IS a lot of hard work, but fun, too.

Don't forget to take pictures at your book signings--have you arranged to give a talk beforehand? That will give the customers a chance to "know you."

You can read an excerpt from your book -- or talk about your journey to publication. Or both!

I look forward to following you on your tour.

Hot Ash Romance Novels said...

I'm on target? So others have done this to themselves? LOL

I haven't arranged a far as I know. My publicist set up most of the signings. I guess I'd better check.

Mostly I just pelt people with chocolate to get them to look at me.

I just preordered "Strange Neighbors" because it sounds like a great and fun book.

Hot Ash Romance Novels said...

Thanks so much, Sabrina!

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment and rating (provided it's a good one, of course...) LOL

Nah, I just hope you enjoy it!
