Blog Tour Updates and Other Fun Stuff

For those of you who have ordered a print version of Mental Pause, when you start reading, you may or may not notice in the first chapter that I have discovered a unique breed of dog. It's a cross between a pit bull and a ... type-o! Yes, it's the dreaded pit pull. It's very similar in nature except that it stutters when it growls. I have to be honest, the error was pointed out by one of my reviewers who had received an advance review copy in electronic format. At the time the print version had already been approved.  I did go ahead and make the correction to the Kindle version but that crazy pit pull is still lurking about in the print version.

If anyone catches anything else, please let me know so I can fix it if and when there's a 2nd edition. It would probably be easier to have the International Association of Dog Naming just change the name though. It might even be good PR for that particular breed, right?

Anyhoo... launch day went really well and I'd like to thank those who participated in day 1 of the blog tour:

Katie Foster, Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures
Jo Parfitt, Author Interviews (Summertime Publishing)
Linda Janssen, Adventures in Expatland
Glenda Bixler, Book Readers' Heaven
Melanie Adkins, Have you Heard my Book Review (author intro... review to follow)
Tuesday Riegen, Ravenous Reader
Judy Shafer, Voracious Reader

Coming up next, Mandy at Literary R&R!

    Linda, I really enjoyed the interview with you. It was the perfect launch for the tour. I really appreciate all the support. I wonder what exotic creature will sneak its way into the next book :)
