Finally - My Tour and Media Dates Onilne!

My Ongoing Book Tour Online!
I found out about a great site called Book Tour: Where Authors and Audiences Meet. (Totally my kind of thing!) I uploaded as much as I could stand to in one sitting, which took me through January. For some reason I couldn't upload the schools I am going to be at, which is just as well I guess!

Here is the link:

Good thing I like traveling! My book tour shows no end. I'm going to be at a lot of schools in Cleveland and Arizona soon, too!

Hope to see you in my travels!
Love and hugs,

The Best Things in Life Cost $29.

Oh My!
I just gave myself the best holiday treat! I saw these advertised in a magazine called Cookie. They are candied chestnuts in honey, from Italy. You can see more about them at:
If you like chestnuts and honey, you'll love these. They have that Greek pastry taste. Oooohhh!
So, now you all know what to send me for gifts!!

A Great Review:
Here is another super nice review, by Kaleb Nation:
Let me tell you a little bit about Kaleb. He is an amazingly talented writer, web designer, and much more - all at the ripe old age of 19! And he is also now a good friend. I met Kaleb online, and now he is designing a new website for me! I'm SO excited about it, too. But Kaleb also wrote a great book which is with an agent now, and I hope he'll be published soon! (Yes, I hear you thinking: what?? How old was he when he wrote it? I think he wrote it between the ages of 15 - 17. So cool!!)

Signing off with love,

Prayers for Allen Alvarado

I just found out that one of my favorite kids was in a car accident. Allen Alvarado was walking with his father and got hit by a car, and thrown 20 feet. He is eleven years old. His father is okay, thank goodness. Allen was in a coma, but I hear he is slowly recovering.

Allen is the star of Flight 29 Down, and has been breaking his way into Hollywood doing more and bigger things. He also loves Erec Rex, and gave The Monsters of Otherness a review that is on the back of the book. His website is at
if you want to learn more about him.

Please think warm thoughts for Allen. I hope he is all better soon!!

Another nice review I saw for Monsters:

Luv and hugs,

Great reviews, and books in Iraq

I was so happy to see these great reviews of Erec Rex!

Blogcritics Magazine had a wonderful review by Katie McNeill:

This was also a nice one to wake up to:

This one was very sweet and nice (even though the reviewer thought I was a man!)

A good one:

Sookie's has been up a while, but I don't think I linked to it yet:

This has been up a while, too, but was a nice interview:

I also found out today that my books arrived in Iraq - the pic above was sent me by a guy named Brian who ordered them there! This picture was taken in Kirkuk, Iraq. He said he wanted to get a picture in front of the military tanks and Humvees to send me but pics are restricted.

I'm going to see if I can send more out to him. I'm sure the troops out there could use a little distraction. If any of you know a way I can donate books out there - if an existing group pays for shipping I can send more...

Love and hugs,
