THE MISTAKEN Blog Tour: Day Eight



It’s Day 8 and I’m getting my second wind, even on a Saturday.  Are you with me?   


Today, I have the pleasure of visiting Aimee Jodoin’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Woman for an interview.  When I finished revising the first draft of The Mistaken, I reached out for critique partners.  The first was not a good experience, but the second one was, for I found Aimee, and I see her every time I read through my novel, smiling when I remember each suggestion she made.  And they’re all still in there, each and every one.  I was so excited when we were reunited here on Blogger earlier this year.        


As you know, every follower who comments here during my tour will be entered into a drawing for an ARC of The Mistaken and a bookmark.  Plus, 5 runner-up winners will each receive an ebook copy.  Winners will be determined using Random.org and notified via email.   

Monday on Day 9, I’ll discuss a humbling experience over at Heather M. Gardner’s The Waiting is the Hardest Part.  Come see the important lesson Heather helped teach me.

I'M HERE, I'M HERE, NANCY!

Says, "Here" when Nancy takes the attendence.

Don't think, I'm missing any day of this tour. It may take awhile for me to get here but I will always get HERE at some point during the busy day.

Great interview, Nancy! Loved it! And I loved your advice, never give up! So true! See ya on Monday!

I was your second critique partner? I didn't know that. I feel so honored. :)

Thanks for letting me be a part of the tour!

Nancy Thompson said...

Livia! You came by, as well! Thank you! And even Andrew is here. I feel so honored to have my friends over on a rare Saturday post. Thanks guys!

And Aimee, yes, you were my second, but the first to do a complete critique. I enjoyed it very much, too.

I'm late. I had to go for supplies yesterday, and then when I got home, my DH was here; he'd been gone 9 days! So, I meant to drop by, but I ended up talking and talking and listening too. Or I would have been here yesterday. And then last night we had a 7.7 earthquake! Yes, the first one in 22+ years. Made me dizzy and almost sic to my stomach. Our pots hang over the sink and work area, and they were banging together. Very freaky. Anyhoo, I digress. I'm off to read the interview NOW. Sunday's not too late, eh?
