Come on Along!

Hi there, guys and dolls!  Today’s blog is, well, about blogs!  I’m in the midst of a GREAgreat-escape-tour-banner-large-death-of-a-beauty-queen640T ESCAPES BLOG TOUR (beautifully orchestrated by Lori Boness Caswell) for DEATH OF A BEAUTY QUEEN and I have had a lovely opportunity to make some new friends and catch up with some old ones.  Do yourself a favor and click on the links mentioned here to get to know some of the best book bloggers around.  We’re also giving away 4 signed copies during the tour, so be sure to enter! Andrea and Heather started off my Edsel in the direction of TEA AND A BOOK with Kym.  It was a great start, as they got acquainted with her most interesting questions and a nice cup of tea.  Lisa of LISA K’S BOOK REVIEWS was a pleasure for day two on her page and she gave us a lovely write-up in her fun and loving style.  Santa Lucia got another new visitor — Luann, on her blog, BACK PORCHERVATIONS.   Another great friend right from my very beginning is Kate Eileen.  It was a great honor to have a second visit on her RANTIN’ RAVIN’ AND READING blog.  Of course, no tour would be complete without a sit down chinwag with my gal pal, Annie.  Do check out our sparkling tea and sandwiches afternoon soiree at THE EDITING PEN.  Today, I had the joy of being entertained and entertaining Christa on her CHRISTA READS AND WRITES blog.

All of these ladies had some lovely things to say and share about my fair Santa Lucians and it made my heart glow.  It feels wonderful to know that they spent a few hours in the company of characters that made them feel welcome.  And, if a little murder and mayhem occurs among the fashions, well, that’s just how it goes ;-)….
