Thank You to Pump Up Your Books Promotions

My virtual book tour for The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey has come to an end and I would just like to take this time to thank all involved. First and foremost –  Dorothy Thompson, Founder of Pump Up Your Books, was a joy to work with and how she keeps all her authors and reviewers straight with her brimming to the rim busy schedule, I can only imagine! I’m just managing myself and that’s chaotic enough for me!

I would also like to thank all of the reviewers. For no monetary exchange whatsoever, they took the time and effort out of their equally busy schedules to not only read my book, but to do a professional and thorough review about it on their respective sites. These men and woman are the unsung heroes of the literary world and I am eternally grateful for all of their support and wonderful reviews they gaveThe Chronicles of Zee & Zoey.

I am especially thrilled that the reviews were positive!! For me, writing and publishing the book was like giving birth – a true labor of love and I obviously have a bias towards the story! There is no guarantee, however, that the rest of the world will have the same opinion and so in many ways, this tour was a nail biter and quite nerve wracking. What many of you may not realize, is that when a review goes up, I am not privy to it ahead of time… I am reading it for the first time just like anyone else can and would always keep my fingers crossed that the reviewer enjoyed the story!! You really do need to have nerves of steel in this industry and I am wiping a collective sigh of relief off my brow!

So, thank you again to Dorothy, Pump Up Your Books Promotions, and the Reviewers for such an amazing experience. For those of you that may have missed some of the stops or are new to my blog and would like to read the reviews, please be sure to check them out when you have a minute:
