The Diary of a Penguin-napper Blog Tour


To celebrate the release of Diary of a Penguin-napper, I’m heading off on a blog tour.  For those of you playing along at home, a blog tour is kind of like a book tour – like when traditionally published authors are whizzed around the countryside from bookshop to bookshop signing piles upon piles of their books for eager fans and being interviewed at every opportunity – except that instead of physically touring bookshops, I will be virtually touring some of the blogs that I follow!

There are eleven delicious stops to come over the next two weeks.  At some stops you’ll get to find out a bit more about me and my writing through interviews and at others there will be guest posts that I’ve writing about writing, publishing and marketing your books.  This is a great opportunity to spread the word about Diary of a Penguin-napper and you’ll get to visit and enjoy some of the great blogs that are out there too.

To kick things off, there is a giveaway open right now over at Goodreads, with two copies of the book up for grabs, so be sure to pop over and check that out.
