Blog Tour: Writing For an Audience, and Building a World

The Blog Tour continueth, with more guest posts and sundries ...

WEDNESDAY, November 9th

Book Lovers Inc.
Today, I am guest posting on Book Lovers Inc:

"Writing For an Audience"
in which I talk about the coolness of writing a sequel while people are reading the first book (yes, writing and promoting at the same time is not just a visit to crazy town). And finally, I'm giving away another e-book copy of Open Minds. Hop over to enter!

Melissa has also posted her review of Open Minds at Book Lovers Inc, and will re-post on her personal blog Spellbound by Books on Friday.

Buried in Books
Heather at Buried in Books already posted her review of Open Minds for Launch Day, but today I'm guest posting over on her blog:

"Building a World Without Dumping Info"
in which I give some tips like "don't tell everything right away" ... only better. Heather is also hosting an e-book giveaway, so hop over to enter!

UPDATE: Fellow writer Carol Riggs reviews Open Minds on her blog: "Here last week I was just talking about reading books with my inner-editor hat on, and how only certain books can sweep me up so completely that I forget I'm wearing that hat. Well! This weekend I read one of those books."

THURSDAY, November 10th
Literature Young Adult Fiction
Later on Thursday, Keira will post her review of Open Minds, as well as host my Guest Post:

"The Difference Between MG and YA and Why I Write Both"

in which I talk about loving kidlit and torturing teen readers.
