Catching My Breath: Grateful for Such Support


Updated list of reviews, interviews, including links to giveaways through May 25, 2014.

Even though I’m still digging out from under the tasks I set aside during recent weeks, I’m rarely doing so without a smile on my face. That’s because I feel the constant glow of support from the recent party, emails, calls, and other contacts. The warmth with which Odin’s Promise has been welcomed to the world is not only heartwarming, it truly surprises me. After years and years of steeling myself for rejection letters and “not quite right”s, it’s almost too hard to believe.


I’ve been feeling the same about the  virtual support I’ve received through the amazing cyber-world of children’s literature. I shared individual links as reviews, guest posts, and interviews appeared in the past couple of weeks. Now I want to thank those hosts (and cheerleaders) in one place.

If you’ve been buried under must-do tasks, too, I hope you’ll come back to this list when you have time and click on each post. In every case these are blogs I follow, respect, and learn from with each post they share. It’s a privilege to join their space, and I urge you to follow their posts, too. You’ll find your to-be-read lists and piles growing, and that’s always a good thing!

Compact, strong, and ready for anything, right?

I can just imagine Odin’s tail wagging at the welcome he’s received!

From Odin, Mari, and me…

to Erik, Rochelle, Suzanne, Alex, Heidi, Margo,

the Nerdy Book Club Crew (Colby), JoAnn, and Alyson,
