Virtual Book Tour

Monday, Jan 5, 2014 kicks off Tranquility‘s Virtual Blog Tour. Each day, I’ll be featured on a different blog until the tour wraps up on Jan 16. It’s a great chance to see reviews of Tranquility, read my guest posts, and interact and leave comments. I’ll post links to the host blogs every day so you can check them out. Please stop by if you get a chance. Hope to see you there!

Here we go! Here’s the link to the virtual tour site
