The Cerebral Writer... Out of the Lockbox

I'm ending this week by visiting two special blogs, each with a unique interview about my writing. I hope you'll drop in to visit me at The Cerebral Writer and Out of the Lockbox. Leave a comment at both blogs and you could win this gorgeous Celtic necklace.

This is my fourth virtual blog tour this year. I've already given away a basket full of goodies from the real town of Lumberton, North Carolina, the setting for the Black Swamp Mysteries series. The winner was in California.

I've also given away two necklaces - a beautiful Celtic triangle necklace that went to a lucky reader in Mississippi and a beautiful Celtic key necklace that was awarded to a reader in California.

I used to spend a good deal of time (up to eight months out of the year) on the road doing physical book signings and talks. But as times have changed and technology has evolved - particularly with regard to the Internet - book promotions have evolved as well. I am enjoying meeting fans on the various blogs from places I would never have visited in person - such as India and France, and from coast to coast here in America. I also feel a bit like Santa Claus each time I notify a lucky fan that they've won.

It also has given me much more time to write. In 2012, I wrote three books - around 1,000 pages - in twelve months. This year, I am obligated to write two more books.

And I have to admit, my dogs like having me around.
