Fiery Edge of Steel Blog Tour

Fiery Edge Of Steel Button 600 x 425 June

To help launch Fiery Edge of Steel, I’m doing a six stop exclusive excerpt “teaser” tour. Each of the blog hosts listed below will post a part of Chapter 1. I’m giving away six signed ARCs of Fiery Edge of Steel (US only) and a $25.00 eGift Certificate to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble, winner’s choice (international). The best way to follow the tour is to start at the beginning so that you can read the excerpts in order (links will be added once the posts are up):

May 6th: Part One Fang-tastic Books

May 7th: Part Two Urban Girl Reader

May 8th: Part Three Preternatura

May 9th: Part Four Urban Fantasy Investigations

May 10th: Part Five Rabid Reads

May 11th: Part Six Romancing the Dark Side

I’m also going to be doing some online interviews, a few blog posts, one radio interview and one in person event at the places listed below. Links will be added, as well as a brief description of interview/blog topics, once they are posted. An asterisk means the host is a Bewitching Book Tours Host. I’ll be offering different giveaways throughout (signed copies of Dark Light of Day and Fiery Edge of Steel, as well as eGift Certificates). Details on giveaways will be posted at each site.

Henry)
