It is time. The blog tour for “A Convenient Risk” is upon us! And I couldn’t be more excited!
What is a blog tour?
For those of you who have never heard of a blog tour, let me explain. Remember when authors used to do book tours around the U.S.? (Some big name authors still do, but it’s not as prevalent.) Well, virtual book tours, or blog tours, have essentially taken the place of those. The goal is for my book to be featured on 20-40 blogs, opening me and my books to an audience that I would otherwise not have access to.
The blog tours consist of different kinds of “stops”:
- the spotlight: this is basically the pertinent information about the book – cover, back cover copy, buy links, author bio, and my social media links, possibly and excerpt from the book as well
- the interview: the blogger has sent me questions, which I filled out, those are posted along with the spotlight info and possibly and excerpt from the book
- the guest blog: I have written a blog to be published on their website, posted along with the spotlight info, not usually combined with an excerpt
- the review: the blogger has read the book and posts a review, along with the spotlight information, not usually an excerpt
When is the blog tour?
The blog tour will start on June 19th and is schedule through July 19th, but has the potential for a couple more spots on July 20th and 21st. Next Wednesday, I will post the schedule, so you can follow along. As well, I will post on my Facebook Author page and Twitter each day where I “am”, so you can keep up.

If you follow the tour, you will notice that there a GRAND PRIZE! A $50 Amazon gift card for those who do follow and participate in the tour (making comments and whatnot).
A Convenient Risk
In case you don’t remember this particular book, let me remind you…
He never imagined her heart would be so hard to reach.
Forced into a marriage of convenience after her husband dies, Amanda Haynes is determined she will never love again. Not that it bothers Brandon Miller. He needs her husband’s cattle. She needs financial stability and long-term support for her son and herself. But she never expected to care so much about the running of the ranch. Or the rancher.
Butting heads over the decisions of the ranch, adding to her frustration and grief at her loss. Her wellbeing is soon threatened as their lives become entangled with Billy the Kid and his gang. What has she gotten herself into? What kind of man has she married? Is there any way out?
