Okay, back to the VBT world. The LITTLE SHEPHERD VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR '10 continues this week. I can't say that I'm not disappointed in the lack of comments considering the giveaway I'm running, but that's how you learn things. And proving my point that comments don't books, Little Shepherd is doing well. Amazon had recently restocked the book and there are only 2 copies left, so I can't complain much.
On Tuesday, I was interviewed at Let's Talk Virtual Book Tours. I shared my insights into the business from an author's point of view; though being an online publicist definitely influenced my answers.
You can find that interview at http://letstalkvirtualbooktours.wordpress.com/2010/11/16/talking-virtual-book-tours-with-children%e2%80%99s-author-cheryl-c-%c2%a0malandrinos/.
Then I received a lovely review from Lady D Books. Here's a blurb:
"Cheryl’s writing is refreshing and inspiring. I look forward to reading more from this beautiful, talented author. I love this book. ***** stars."
You can read the full review, which includes a shot of the interior cover art and the trailer, at http://ladyd-books.blogspot.com/2010/11/book-tour-and-review-of-little-shepherd.html.
Today I am at Life in the First Draft. This is the first of three days I will be visiting this blog. I love this one because all it talks about is first drafts. To start off my three-day stop here, I am talking about "those" first drafts. Not sure what I mean? You can read all about it at http://lifeinthefirstdraft.blogspot.com/2010/11/those-first-drafts-by-cheryl.html.
Here's my friendly reminder that all you need to do is leave a comment with your email address (so I can contact you if you win) in order to be entered into my giveaway for a Christmas gift basket that retails for $65.
