So the answer concerning my lengthy absence from my blog is (drum roll, please) I needed all of that time to prepare a variety of blogs and interviews (all sixteen of them...whew!) for my upcoming book tour featuring "Spirit of the Knight!" And that, dear friends, was quite a task!
(To top it off, I also had to find time for editing book number six as well as spend some time on my current work in progress, but those discussions will have to wait for another time... ahem). Oh excuses, excuses....I know...but the dog really did eat my homework...I swear!
All right, enough of that silly nonesense! I had a lot of fun preparing for this tour, so I hope you all will join me at each stop. Now why would you want to do that? Well, for one, you can see exactly what kept me so preoccupied since mid-April that I couldn't find time to write a single blog for my own site, AND you will all want the opportunity to win the prize.
Yep, I have a special prize for one unique winner and it's one I am so excited to give! That winner will not only receive ebook copies of Van Locken's Witch and Shadow of the Witte Wieven, he or she will also receive an original 11 X 14 art print, signed by the artist entitled:
Prayer of the Fallen
Isn't it gorgeous? (I have already ordered my own print and I am excited to get it home and framed!) Those who have already read the book (thank you) will understand its significance.
Now, in keeping with the "spirit" of this tour, we will do some more haunted castle blogs and some "Spirit of the Knight" character interviews right here, so if you have a question or--better yet--many questions, please put them in the comments or shoot me an email. I promise we will get to all of them!
