Winter Blast Blog Tour

I was lucky enough to participate in this year’s Winter Blast Blog Tour, and was interviewed by the terrific Little Willow on her blog, Bildungsroman. You can check out the interview here.

Boots and Pieces and The Curse of Cuddles McGee are nominated for Cybils awards! Boots and Pieces was reviewed by one of the judges in the middle grade fantasy category — Nettle, of The Puck in the Midden, here. (scroll down for the review)

And I’m very psyched to have found The Curse of Cuddles McGee for sale on this site — HamsterFizz — which is described on its homepage as the place “where you will find everything for your gerbil or hamster.” Including, apparently, spooky stories about their undead relatives. How awesome is that?

It’s review time!

Mel Odom, author of the Rover books, reviewed Boots and Pieces for Blogcritics.org here.

Elizabeth Bird of Fuse 8 fame also has a review up here.

And a review from BookDivas is here.

The Curse of Cuddles McGee also has a review, from the Happy Nappy Bookseller — it’s here.

And Little Willow has included the books on two of her lists — Boots and Pieces is on her Best Books of September booklist, and the series is in awesome company on her list of Funny Fiction for Kids.
