My Blog Book Tour – I’m running as fast as I can!

Alice in Wonderland, rabbit“I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” I feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, trying frantically to keep up with my Blog Book Tour. Today I’m on Karen Walker’s blog, Following The Whispers, writing about the tragic saga of my golden retriever Lucky, as well as my shepherd-mix Rishi who stars in Mood Swing.


I just sent off a post to Jean Henry Mead for her blog Writing Advice & Good Books, where I’ll be visiting tomorrow. My topic:

First or third person? One voice or many? Julie Lomoe’s musings on point of view.

Fortunately, I’ve already given the topic considerable thought. I moderated a virtual panel discussion about POV for the Poisoned Pen Web Con on October 24, so I’m revisiting some of what I said there. By the way, the day’s proceedings, including my panel, are now free on line through the above link. It’s a real treasure trove of information.

Friday’s stop: Helen Ginger’s Straight from Hel blog 

Brian Wilson nowLast night I heard Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame at The Egg. Although his voice has coarsened over the years, he had a first-rate band with several singers who created beautiful harmonies. Brian seemed happier than when I heard him at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center several years ago. I’m reminded of the perennial “tortured genius” theme – Brian Wilson certainly qualifies. That in turn reminds me of the “genius is only a step away from madness” theme. I’ll be writing about that  on Helen’s blog, drawing on my personal experience from an acute manic episode. Friday the 13th seems like an appropriate day for that particular piece of personal history.

Thanks to the blog hosts who’ve been so patient and tolerant of my last-minute efforts. And to those hosting me next week: I’m in catch-up mode now, so in the immortal words of Brian Wilson, “Don’t worry baby – everything will be alright.” (I used to sing that gorgeous song as a lullaby for my daughter, and now I sing it to my granddaughters.)

    • Hi Marvin. I’ve only got one more post to write for my tour – yours! I’ll get to it this afternoon, before I go usher for Ani DiFranco at The Egg.

      Got your e-mail reminder this morning – and here I thought you were so laid back! (triple wink)

    • Hi Stephen,

      Thanks for stopping by. I saw your comment on Jane’s blog – you said you were a “bit of an introvert.” But why not take the test and get more details? It’s not too late!

      BTW, I posted today on Toni Andrews blog at I’m writing about villains, and describe a character in ELDERCIDE who’s named Stephen. You’ll be glad to know he’s not really a villain, though – just a good-looking cad and scoundrel.

    • Hi Alexis,
      Thanks for stopping by. Are you still in the area? Speaking of which, there’s a Hudson Valley Writers Guild meeting at the East Greenbush Library tomorrow night (Wed. the 18th) at 6pm. You should come! It’s free, open to all, with refreshments.
