Virtually Booked: I'm innocent! Innocent, I tell you.

It was a frame-up, pure and simple.

Here I was, going along with the usual business of setting up books signings in my favorite bookstores for Just Deserts, my new Hetta Coffey novel, when I was bushwacked! The seemingly sweet-natured and otherwise loveable Pat Browning did it. She dragged me, kicking and screamimg, into the world of virtual book touring.

Okay, so maybe she didn't hold a gun to my head, but by inviting me to participate in a two-week blitzkrieg of blogging, she has forced me into what I had, until now, avoided like, well, tap water in Acapulco.

I've actually been on Blogspot for over four years, but have been extremely lax about blogging, because who was gonna read it anyhow? But then, how could they, since I never told anyone I was blogging.

This is a test. Is anyone at all reading this???

(Thanks, Pat!!)

Ha! Pat did the same thing to me, Jinx! She beat me with a stick until I set up a blog!

Nice blog, Jinx. This will be my first blog tour, too, and like you, I was pulled in by Pat Browning. Well, she hasn't given me a bum steer yet. See you on the tour bus.

P.S. I'm stealing that Beatles quote from your web page --

"Dear Sir or Madam will you read my book? It took me years to write, will you take a look?" -- lyrics from Paperback Writer, The Beatles

Love it!

So glad I found your blog. Sweetie, you have to fix your Atom.
I adore your Hetta Coffey series and wish you all the luck in the world with your blogging adventures and your books.
Would be lovely if you added a follow link, and a google + link. They're in your dashboard under gadgets.
Best to you

Oh, dear, I didn't even know I HAD an Atom. I will see what I can do. Thanks Jennie!
