Blog Bounce– Ember Tour Update and Prizes

It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for the Author! Author! Blog Bounce hosted by Omnific Publishing.

Before we get to that I want to give an update on the Ember Blog Tour hosted By YA Bound.

I’m please to say Ember has been getting some fantastic reviews this week, both on the tour and by several other blogs. I’ve been humbled by many of the comments made about Ember and about me as a writer. Seriously, sometimes thank you seems inadequate to readers who spend almost every moment of their spare time sharing their thoughts about the books they read and promoting authors who would otherwise remain virtually unknown. I will say it regardless - Thank you. 

So onto the good stuff, the prizes. For anyone who follows along with the tour there are a few prizes to talk about. Six random blogs on the tour will be giving away ebooks of Ember. There will be a runner up prize consisting of a paperback copy of the book and a pretty tote bag.


For the grand prize there is something very special lined up. The winner will get an Ember ebook, a tote, but they will also receive this.


As you can see, there is a butterfly on the cover of Ember. The significance of the cover to the story is explained here. This silver pendant necklace is from Newbridge Silverware’s Vintage collection here in Ireland. I swung by Newbridge to pick up this beautiful piece. Celeb’s associated with Newbridge silverware  include  Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Yasmin LeBon and Linda Gray. 

Good Luck everyone and if you want to check out any of the blogs already visited. Here is a list.
