Online Book Tour Features a Stop at My Publisher's Site This Week
Or...Sandy Lender cajoles her publisher into this, too

When I told Bob Gelinas I was putting together an online book tour for Choices Meant for Gods, his eyebrows arched and he said, "Really? How will that work, exactly?" Now, I'm not going to say he was giddy over it, because I've seen him giddy over more exciting things than sitting at a computer terminal, but he definitely looked pleased with the implications. Next thing he knows, he's getting an e-mail from me asking if he'd use the ArcheBlog as a host site for me. The response was a resounding, "yabetcha." (I'm paraphrasing.) The result:

Fantasy Author Sandy Lender appears at the ArcheBlog Friday, June 8, to celebrate the birthday of Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes and to discuss the release of her debut fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods. How's that for a mouthful? But Friday's not the only day this week. There are four others. That means four more stops on the Choices Meant for Gods Online Book Tour and a total of five opportunities for you to get a link to pick up your copy of CMFG (http://www.amazon.com/Choices-Meant-Gods-Sandy-Lender/dp/1595071652/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-9089752-5140754?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1180922527&sr=8-1). Five opportunities for you to interact with the fantasy author (and you can always leave comments here at Today the Dragon Wins and you'll get a response either back in the comments or to your personal e-mail). Five opportunities for you to learn more about the story of Amanda Chariss and her guardian wizard, her dragon companion she's trying to keep a secret, her new beau she's not entirely comfortable with, and her arrogant god she's charged with protecting. I'll list this week's stops below, and I encourage you to check them out to support not just this online book tour of mine, but to support these wonderful folks who have been so kind to host me and give me a little of their space and time during this tour. DeNita, Nancy, Yvonne, Linda, Bob...I thank you for the help while I'm still just a small fish in a very big pond.

To see an article about the folks who extended this helping hand last week, check out Nigel's post at Nigel Presents Sandy Lender at http://sandylender.blogspot.com tonight. Isn't he a wonderful marketing partner? ;)
