Announcing . . . the CAVENDISH Blog Tour!

15 Aug

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh YOU GUYS.

The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls comes out TWO WEEKS FROM YESTERDAY.

(Yes, that is Jeremy Renner flailing like a giddy schoolgirl. YOU’RE WELCOME.)

Lots of exciting, Cavendish-y things coming up soon, and the most exciting of these might just be . . .

Yes! The Cavendish Blog Tour officially begins Monday, August 20! I’ve got some awesome posts lined up for you at some equally awesome blogs. It’s been SO wonderful working with these bloggers. The book blogging community has basically been rocking my socks off.

And guess what?? At each stop on the tour, Simon & Schuster is giving away a final hardcover copy of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls! All told, that’s 19 chances to win!

Check out the schedule:

Monday, 8/20: Interview with Katie at Mundie Kids . . . + an excerpt from Cavendish!

Wednesday, 9/5: The Book Smugglers review Cavendish and I talk about my favorite MG heroines

Friday, 9/7: The Challenges (and Fun Parts!) of Writing MG Horror – at Project Mayhem

Saturday, 9/8: At The Bookish Type, I talk about the architecture, style, and wardrobe of Victoria’s not so picture-perfect town, Belleville

Whew! That, my friends, is what we call A Whole Lotta Awesome. I hope to see you at all the stops! It’s gonna be a grand ol’ time.

  2. The Music of Cavendish, Part 1 | The Book Cellar - August 22, 2012

    [...] On this blog tour, I’m highlighting a lot of the music from my CAVENDISH playlist, in three different posts. Since my playlist is extensive, with a track for pretty much every scene, I’m only highlighting my favorites. Most of the music is from film scores, as that is my primary writing music, especially for something as fairy tale-esque as CAVENDISH. Also, before each clip, I’ll talk a bit about the accompanying scene (spoiler-free!). Make sure to check out the other “Music of CAVENDISH” posts over at Good Books & Good Wine (Aug. 26th) and Novel Sounds (Aug. 29th).
