The Dragon is Loose
Or...Sandy Lender launches her online book tour in support of Choices Meant for Gods May 21

Sandy Lender will fly through the blogosphere May 21 to July 21 in support of Choices Meant for Gods, relying on the generosity and good will of a variety of fellow bloggers who have agreed to host her at their sites to talk about the epic fantasy novel and the process of getting it published. CMFG was released internationally as a hardback at the end of March and has been well received by readers and reviewers (visit http://www.amazon.com/Choices-Meant-Gods-Sandy-Lender/dp/1595071652/ref=dp_return_1/104-9089752-5140754?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books&qid=1175821346&sr=8-1 to see a few of the fan reviews and a review from Linear Reflections' own Jamieson Wolf; once June hits, we'll have a couple more professional reviews up over at Blogging Authors). I encourage you to visit as many of these blogs as you can to learn more about the author, the storyline, the characters, the writing and publishing industry, Duran Duran, the Brontes, and other bizarre stuff that came up in some of the interviews (you'd be surprised). I guess the one that I'd push right now, the one that promises to be most off-the-cuff, just by its very nature, is the author chat at Marcus Williford's blog site/chat room a week from tonight. Wednesday, May 23, at 9 p.m. eastern, join Sandy Lender at http://willifordblog.com. Sign in a few minutes beforehand so you can register, which is free and does NOT get you on any sort of spam list - I know because I've done it.

Below is a list of the blog sites that have confirmed dates for the tour. As more get locked in (and that happens daily), I'll update the list and post a new one this weekend. I hope you enjoy the conversations and let folks know that you've enjoyed being at their sites. (Oh! Also this weekend, I'll let you know which sites will have free giveaways and contests. I've got some autographed books and some dragon necklaces and goodies like that that a few enterprising hosts/hostesses are willing to help me give out to lucky winning commenters who drop by their sites on the day I'm there.)

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
