An Austen Week...and a Walk into the Unknown

In the past few days, mostly to aid my strained memory, I've compiled a list of places involved so far in my Online Book Tour. (And, FYI: quite a few more links will be added soon...) I've posted them in the right sidebar. So, if you've missed an interview, book review, guest post, article or giveaway--and you're curious about any of these--that's the one-stop spot for everything.

Today, there are a couple of very exciting, week-long events in the Blogsphere, and I'm thrilled to be a part of them both. The Book Girl has a giveaway going on today--with three ARCs of According to Jane up for grabs as part of her "Austen Week"! Please check out her review; comment, if you'd like a chance to win an ARC; and, for you fellow Austen lovers, don't forget to take a peek at some of her special Austen offerings, too. The Grand Prize package she has available for one lucky visitor is delightful (see it here)!

In the western spiral of the galaxy, where some rather cool people live, the humorous and truly wonderful Pamela Cayne has an actual "Marilyn Brant Week" (!!!) that starts today. Aside from the interview questions she asked me, I'll admit to not really knowing the details of this week. And, if I didn't trust her implicitly, I'd feel a few stirrings of apprehension... (Hey, she mentions there'll be, and I quote: "thrills, chills, star sightings, and even a possible murder.") I'm holding out hope for a Star Trooper, too. So, please visit Pam's site, not only for my "week" there, but for all weeks beyond. The lady is unpredictable. She makes meandering into the unknown fun.

Release Day is in ONE WEEK!! (Ahhhh!!!!) More to come!

p.s. I just got the happy news that According to Jane is going to be a Fresh Fiction "Fresh Pick" next month (review coming soon). Made me smile :-).

And I am thrilled and honored to be part of such a special time. It was truly a joy to do, and if I had any wits about me, I would have made it Marilyn Brant Year!!!
