Friday Five for December 19, 2014


1. My Loose Corset blog tour with Goddess Fish Promotions is all set to go. They are super efficient and really nice. This is my first time not creating my own tour, and it's been an excellent experience so far working with a virtual book tour company. Check out my snazzy banner!


2. Now on to doing my posts for my Geeky Dice & Debauchery Tour! Hosts, I'll be contacting you soon with updated information. Oh boy, it's going to be a busy new year, but so much fun!

3. All my writing this week was for tour posts. I've also been critiquing. I'm always amazed at the talent of my critique partners and betas.

4. Today is my son's school concert and lunch. They'll sing some Christmas songs and do some dancing. It's so cute watching the wee ones perform. I spent two hours last night making sandwich pinwheels for the lunch. A chef I am not. Next time, I'll buy them already made! But they're full of color and very healthy. If the kids just don't go right for the desserts!

5. I'll be taking a blogging break until the new year. We stay home for Christmas, and I love it. Two weeks of rest and relaxation, and doing things together as a family. See you in 2015! Have a very happy Christmas and an awesome new year!

  14. p.s. I love the idea of a blog tour company doing any future blog tours for me. I can't imagine being able to muster the energy to do it myself ;)

  18. Hi human, Christine,

    Woah and hang on, I've arrived! Good heavens, it's six in the morning. Arf and yawn!

    Nothing like a school concert. I know my alleged human, Gary, tried to steal the show at school concerts.

    Enjoy your blogging break and have that quality time with your family.

    Merry Christmas and a pawesome 2015!

    Penny :)

  21. I'm arranging my own blog tour and, yes, it's exhausting! But I'm mostly working with people who read my blog. Perhaps with my next release I'll hire someone to do it, too...seems a great way to reach people you wouldn't have reached otherwise.
