It's getting closer!

W00t! not long now until the Game On Blog Tour officially begins!

Before I talk about that (for probably the last time before it starts!) I want to say than you for all your comments on the last post, especially about my photo! I would have put it off for a bit longer, but Leigh Covington asked me for one to include with the interview she'll be posting in a week or two, so I thought I'd better get on it! :D

Thanks also to those of you who have purchased Game On and left reviews! It is so amazing to see such postivity, I cannot express enough how much these reviews mean to me! For those of you who are interested, I've added a new "My Books" page to the blog, so you can see where to buy Game On, and some snippets of the reviews I've received. :D

So, the blog tour begins August 6th, and I have started getting my blog posts out to the fab people who will be hosting me! If you haven't received an email from me yet and are expecting one, don't panic! I am doing it in small phases, and I should have reached everyone by the end of the week. If you have a date on the tour and still haven't heard from me by Saturday, let me know as I don't want to miss anyone out!

Finally, I'm holding a giveaway on Goodreads, and you could win a print copy of  Game On! Details are here. I only put it up this morning and there are 39 entries already. I guess everyone loves a giveaway! Speaking of giveaway, there is still time to enter to win some of Leah's tacky souvenirs from the UK, so if you want to be involved, you can find the details here.

Okay, that's enough Game On chat from me! I will make my next post much less self-involved! :p

What have you guys been working on recently? I wanna know! :D
