Annnnnd it’s Day 2! *everyone celebrates* *dancing in the streets* *salsa splashes everywhere* *its a salsa party*
I … have no idea what any of that was about. So … yeah. Lots of .. salsa. I don’t even like salsa. #hatestomatoes #notaspicyperson
So, today we have a couple fun posts, an informative vlog (don’t worry; they all won’t be information-packed; there will be some funness, too), and all the other stuff. And I finally remember to mention something else that I’d intended to mention earlier. *facepalm*
And Today’s Posts Are …
I loved answering Faith’s questions because it gave me a chance to be all professional (I don’t know why; I just felt like being professional that day) … or y’know, as professional as I can be. She asked some great questions that really made me think. 🙂

Today’s vlog is about The Dressmaker’s Secret – why it was removed from the market, revised, and republished.
I don’t believe I mentioned this in the video, but TDS is a completely different book. It was so fun to revise it, and I’m really glad I did, because it has improved so much. Or at least I think so. I’m a conceited author, and conceited is known to cause blindness. 😛
Also … I apologize for the wind. And the fuzziness. Call it background noise. Ignore it. Wonder why my hair isn’t also blowing around (I frankly have no idea).
And we’re back to ramble about this again. Remember, by entering this giveaway, you can win a paperback copy of both The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective (US only) or an ebook copy of the same novels (International). You can sign up here!
I’ll also be drawing one of the names from my newsletter list for the winner’s choice of ebooks – TDS, IvIn, or TLOTV. (Not that I, um … copied and pasted that phrase, though …)
Signups and Such
The signups to receive an ebook copy of The Dressmaker’s Secret or Ivy Introspective in exchange for a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or your blog are now open. You can sign up here.
Also, for blogger, if you’re interested in receiving notifications every time I have signups open for a new blog tour, you can sign up here.
Because it can’t be Q&A submissions because … there’s no answer yet … and it’s just … Q … yeah, you get the point.
So. If you want to ask me a question (no matter how stupid it may be), just comment below with the question (or questions). Be sure to mark it as a Q&A question, though. Or I won’t even notice it … XD
Yes, that’s right! There’s actually a Facebook party going on! Well, on the 24th. Okay, so, there will be a Facebook party on the 24th. *finally gets words to work*
You can find it here. Be sure to join in if you’re on Facebook. 🙂
Remember the Books!
Oh, that’s right! At some point I should probably include the links to where you can buy that books and such …
You can pre-order Ivy Introspective on Kindle.
The Dressmaker’s Secret is available in both paperback and Kindle on Amazon.
Have you read either TDS or IvIn? Do you think you ever will? (If they’re not your genre, I totally get it!) Ever read historical fiction? If so, what are your thoughts on it? If not, why? Are you feeling sleepy, wide awake, or somewhere in between right now?
I feel like my blog tour hasn’t been too amazing so far. I’m honestly doing a lackluster job at everything (+ the posts have been out super late because one of the bloggers first delayed and has now had to drop out), and I feel like I lack a certain element of creativity.
However, I’m doing my best, and I’m pretty sure that’s just me being a perfectionist. And angry that I can’t really do vlogs the way I was before because my (formerly free) video editor’s trial ran up. *glares at video editor*
And … there has been some depressing stuff going on in my life. I’m pretty sure I won’t be getting horse riding lessons like I thought I would because the instructor fell through, and my dog is dying. I just don’t feel like I can be a success at anything. (Um … yeah … that’s so melodramatic … and cliché … I hate being cliché … but I’m a cliché person … *sighs*)
