Annotated River Road, Tour Stops, and Weekly W*nners

First off today, I have a rare Sunday tour stop on the River Road virtual tour (only a few stops left now). I'm being interviewed over at the Reader Girls Blog, so head on over to read about the mind-numbing "normal" day in my life. You can enter here for the tour-wide giveaways as well as the commenter giveaways--for details, see the column at the right.

Next up, instead of a scene-snippet today, I've done some annotations on Chapter 2 of River Road (no spoilers)...including a fun video of Louis Armstrong--so check out my website home page for that.

Thanks to Miki, who reviewed my digital holiday story Christmas in Dogtown on her website Lecture toute une Aventure today! This is a story that's unrelated to my series (although also set in South Louisiana), and tells of a young woman who gets dragged home to rural St. James Parish to help out with the family business at Christmas--and finds out more about herself and her family than she ever expected. Christmas in Dogtown is $2.99 right now for both Kindle and Nook.

Also, thanks to Jeffrey Wendler at The Examiner for a great River Road review today!

Last but not least, we have weekly winners! If you see your name here, please contact me at this email with your mailing info. If you win a mystery book, you can either choose something from the "Book Horde" tab near the top of this page (first come, first served), or let me pick for you. I don't have anywhere near all the books in the Book Horde typed in yet. These are new books unless otherwise noted, and are review copies, unclaimed prizes, or copies I've purchased used but in excellent condition.

Mystery book winners (selected by from each day's tour stop commenters): 
Kah Cherub; Christina Kit; PamK; DonnaS; Readsalot81; Miki; Roger
