There were thrills. Laughter. Tears… A roller coaster of a… All right, bit carried away there. Point is my blog tour is over. Finito. At an end. Thank you to Marieanne and all the hosts – you were blinding! So here are the highlights of last week.

Jane Davis’ Virtual Book Club: ‘I slithered bloody from my mother’s womb with a head full of other worlds…’blood dragons and me 2

Readeropolis: ‘I see a novel happening in my mind; it’s like I’m translating it down. Tarantino has said he does the same. Apart from he probably said it in a cooler, more American way.’

Laurie’s Paranormal Thoughts and Reviews: ‘I know the end of a novel before I’ve even written the first line. It’s like being a chauffeur of a Limousine full of VIPs (the readers) – I don’t set off on a journey without first checking the car’s not going to breakdown and I know the route!’

DISCOVER WHY READERS MAKE A GOOD BLOG TOUR GREAT – Tomorrow Join in and See for Yourself

fs_tourbanner_bloodshackles

Writers. Myth goes we’re a solitary bunch. Hermit-like hunched over our manuscripts. Emerging only at book launches. As Light would say, ‘Bollocks‘. Without a reader, books are merely words on a page. There’s no emotion. No connection. And no point.

Tomorrow my month long book tour kicks off. It’s a way for me – here in Oxford, England – to connect with readers all around the world. To chat, discuss and hand out exclusive sneak peeks. Blood Shackles is released on 1st November. To pre-order it now click here.

There’s going to be giveaways (the chance to win $50 Amazon card), reviews, interviews and excerpts.

Then there’s the guest blogs… Here’s a little taste: ‘The Soundtrack of My Blood Life,’ ‘Inside the Mind of a Slave,’ and ‘How to Cook Like a Vampire.’ Intrigued? Come on, that last one..? Diamond, seriously.

But the real secret to a good blog tour becoming great? I could’ve written War and Peace but it wouldn’t matter. If none of you folks turned up, shared, liked, commented and turned it from an event into an event.

Click here to see where I’ll be each day. I’ll update Facebook daily too. Follow me on Twitter,  RT and use #BloodShackles to spread the word.

Post pictures of yourself with the novel on Facebook. Ask me anything you like – I double dare you. Tell your dog – it’s Halloween, heme-and-blood-shackles-3

HALLOWEEN CONTEST – Who Believes in the Paranormal?

blood-dragons-halloween-teaser

Halloween. Just around the corner. Enticing us with parties, pumpkins…and killer clowns. Oh, and the Halloween Sale of Blood Dragons. Only 0.99… I’d make a spooky price joke here but…I’m still caught up on the clown thought. Blame reading It at too tender an age.

I also opened the Official Bloody Halloweenfest on Friday, kicking off three days of contests, reveals, giveaways, excerpts and dark fun. Have a look here

believe-braceletI held a Halloween Contest to win a handcrafted BELIEVE bracelet. Entrants had to answer this: Mulder always wanted to believe… On Halloween, in what do you want to believe? Vampires or werewolves? Witches… or kick-ass superpowers to take on the undead? What do you believe – all right, wish, walks the same streets as us humans?

I was blown away by the answers – insightful, funny and passionate about the paranormal… Yeah, I struggled to pick a winner.

It looks like we want to believe in vampires, werewolves, shifters, witches, magic and the thin veil dividing our worlds… to mention just a few. Read the brilliant responses here

And the winner? The handcrafted BELIEVE BRACELET goes to: Veronica Vasquez

Here’s what Veronica believed in…

‘Witches, vampires, werewolves, dragons, shifters, fae, and all sorts of beings that I can’t even imagine! I’d like to believe there is a secret magical world out there, as ours has so many problems, and that one day the magical world and out world will combine and it will heal so many of the problems with society today! I believe!’

Congratulations and respect!
