The tour is just finishing up today, but I wanted to tell everyone what a wonderful experience it was! I’d been noticing the bright banners of the “Great Escapes” blog tours for a while now, and followed many of them, learning about new cozy mysteries with fun characters and interesting authors, but I never quite got it until I connected with CWA friend Debbie De Louise, who is one of the blog tour hosts. I decided to take a chance and contacted Lori, who amazingly coordinates the tours. From there it was easy- I just followed her instructions and voila! A week of cross-promotion from a group of great bloggers with sites I’m excited to discover.

Here is the full line-up of stops on the tour, and even though the last of the blogposts posted today, the sites with their interviews, reviews, character interviews, and fun with cats are still there and definitely worth taking a look. Check it out for a chance to win a signed copy of “Cat Café”. (GIVEAWAY ends tomorrow.)
