The A-Z's of Planning & Execution

Monday, September 10, 2012



This is the final week of the Friendship-is-Forever Blog Tour and I’ll be stopping in the United States, Australia, Austria and South Africa. It’s been a blast and I already have a seed of an idea that I’ve been putting on index cards.


In other news, I got an email from one of the local papers earlier in the week, letting me know they’d be publishing a review of my women’s fiction/family drama novel, Dissolution. It was comprehensive and captured all that I was going for in the novel. It’s great when a reader understands all that’s gone into the story execution. I figure I should be able to get it scanned, so I can use it to promote that book.


To come back to the tour, I’ll be hanging out at the A-Z Challenge Blog. Many of you took part in that mega-blogging April event, so you might be interested in finding out how I’ve linked Distraction and the A-Z Challenge. Click on over for a quick visit.

P.S. Don’t forget to enter the competition for the personalized Distraction
notepad and pen and $10 Amazon Gift Card on the Rafflecopter.

    1. Hi, Lee,
      They publish my stories, so I gave the editor a copy of the book. It's wonderful of them to actually write a review, since it wasn't requested or discussed.

  3. Congrats on getting the review for Dissolution, Joy. Wishing you much success with this tour and I'll help to keep the fire going even when the tour is over. I've been busy trying to wrap up editing, publishing, etc.

    I have to learn how to reconnect with my Jamaican culture. I've spent more years in North America than I've lived in Jamaica.

    1. Thanks, Mike,
      The editor knows I have a clue about writing, so we have a good relationship. Didn't expect the review though.
