It is bittersweet to now come to the end of my Crimson Dahlia Blog Tour organized by Paranormal Cravings. What a ride! In one month (Sept 16-Oct 11) I popped by 25 different blogs. There were spotlights, and guest posts, and author interviews. And of course, a giveaway. I had a ton of fun interacting with both the book bloggers and the readers.
Huge thank you to the PC team for all your help! And giant thank you to all the bloggers for hosting me!!!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Giveaway via Rafflecopter. We had about 400 entries. Congrats to the following winner who will receive eBook copies of all 3 Svatura books (Blue Violet, Hyacinth, & Crimson Dahlia). I really hope you enjoy them!!!

Blog Tour Host Surprise:
I surprised the following blog tour hosts with a small token of gratitude ($5 Amazon GC) for being an awesome host in some way. I wish I could have given each and every one a thank you gift. You guys rock!
- Urban Fantasy Land – Nicest Looking Post
- Liberty Ann’s SnifferWalk Books – Most Responsive via Email
- Simply Infatuated – Most Fun (for me) Guest Post Topic (Cocktails & Characters)
- The Book Tart – Most Interaction/Promotion After Post (& likely to be friends – we think a lot alike)
- Tome Tender – Nicest Surprise (a review of ALL 3 books of the Svatura series!)
The guest post in particular were really fun. And I hit a lot of varied topics. I asked each host for suggestion on what their readers would like to see and I got some really great suggestions back. In case you missed any of them, here are all my guest posts from the tour. I hope that you’ll check out the actual Blog Stops (below) to read them, but these links go to just the post itself on my site.
