Who's this gal?

Who is that lovely gal pictured on my post? Author Tamara Hart Heiner. Her blog tour starts today for her debut novel, Perilous. Check out Nephite Blood, Spartan Heart for the first stop. For the rest of the stops, check out Tamara's blog for the run down.

I will be taking part in this blog tour. I'm currently reading Perilous. You're jealous, I can tell. I'll be giving my review on November 11th. So keep your eye out for that.

In addition to the tour, Tamara is also holding some awesome contests.

1) There will be two book giveaways. Signed copies of Perilous, of course. All you have to do to get in on that action is make a comment anywhere in the blog tour. The drawing will be completely random. Of course, the more comments you make, the more chances you have of winning.
2) There will be a Kindle giveaway. This WON'T be random. Kindles are kind of a big thing, so she's going to make you work for it. The giveaway will be point based, in other words, whoever has the most points at the end of the blog tour wins the Kindle. The contest will run until Dec. 15, at which point all hopeful winners will email her at-- tamara at tamarahartheiner dot com with their points and their proofs.
Here's how you get points:

+1 for each comment on the blog tour

+1 be a follower on my blog (old or new)

+1 retweet

+2 blog about the blog tour

(You prove all of those by emailing Tamara the links.)

+5 purchase the book; ebook or paperback, doesn't matter

(Email Tamara the confirmation number of your purchase.)

The ebook is out now and paperback will be out November 16th. You can pre order here.

So check it out.

I hope to be back into the swing of things, including commenting, next week. Sorry things have been hectic and a little rough, but good. I'll explain next week.

Any weekend plans?

Have a great weekend!
