Alice Blog Tour ~ Day 9, 10 & 11 ~ Roundup

Blog tour day 9: Tuesday 25th April

Thank you to Karen at My Reading Corner blog who hosted my guest post about my road to publication, including this Q&A

Q. What do you do the night before?

On the eve of the publication date of my debut novel ‘Alice’, I was working the late clinic in the GP Surgery where I am a Practice Nurse. It had been a very long day, so upon arriving home, I spent a cosy, relaxing evening with my husband. I also kept checking in with my Marketing Manager, who was hard at work promoting me across social media. During the evening, I received lots of well wishes from family and friends.

Thank you also to Kirsty at Novel Deelights who read and reviewed my novel Alice, here is a quote from her book review.

Raw and highly believable!

Thank you to Nicola at Short Book and Scribes for hosting me on her blog, and for featuring an author Q&A including the question below.

Q. Who would be at your dream dinner party (alive, dead or fictional)?

My late father so I could enjoy one more meal with him. Also my mum so that she could enjoy the same pleasure. My husband and Winston Churchill for I would enjoy listening to their conversation. Billy Connolly and Oscar Wilde for their wit and exuberance. Jane Austin and Charlotte Bronte, so that I can pick their brains in a literary sense of course.

Their friendship, takes them on a journey of recovery and a new future for Alice.

Blog tour day 7: Sunday 23rd April

Thank you to Kerry Parsons of ‘Chat About Books’ blog who hosted me on day 7 of the blog tour.

Kerry featured extract 3 from my novel Alice so please make sure you read extracts 1 & 2 over at Bookalicious Travel Addict & Kristin’s Novel Café first.

The extract includes this quote:

Despite the battering her trust had taken, Alice never lost faith in the idea of love. She had considered herself to be happily married once, and she was not disillusioned with men; just the one that had mattered to her.

Blog tour day 8: Monday 24th April

Thank you very much to Aileen of ‘Feminisia Libros Review’ blog for reading and reviewing my novel Alice.

Here is what she says:

The author portrays Alice’s alcoholism realistically, and her character was easy to empathise with.  It is no surprise after what she was went through that she finally snaps.  The book is quite dark and dramatic in parts as it travels to the deepest parts of Alice’s mind, however it is still readable, and I found it hard to put the book down.

Aileen, ‘Feminisia Libros Review’

Day 4: Thursday 20th April

Alice book excerpt

Thank you to Kristin’s Novel Café for hosting me on day 4 of the blog tour and for featuring an excerpt from my novel Alice, including the paragraph below

That night as she tossed and turned in bed; all she could think about was the pain of betrayal which was striking deep into her heart like a physical blow. She tried to close her eyes, but sleep eluded her. A million thoughts turned around and round in her head, a mix of emotions tumbled around in the pit of her stomach, anger, pain and abandonment

Cats and Contours will be hosting me on day 6 of the Alice blog tour, which has been organised by Emma Mitchell FPR.

Alice blog tour – April 2017

The Alice blog tour will commence on the 17th April, and it will be a two-week long tour. The tour will include book reviews of my debut novel Alice, excerpts, author Q&A, along with other unique content.

What is a blog tour?

A blog tour has similarities  to a traditional book tour, however, instead of the author going from bookstore to bookstore, the author appears on a different blog every day. Bloggers add unique content about the author and her book to their website, and readers are encouraged to visit every blog during the duration of the tour and interact (leave comments) on the various blog posts.
