Starting on Monday, January 17, and running the whole of that week, I'll be visiting a different blog each day for author interviews, character interviews, reader Q&As, and exclusive excerpts. You'll also find reviews of Anchored on stops along the tour. But I know what you're really interested in: swag. And oh my, what swag there will be! Every host blog will have some book-related swag to raffle to commenters. Every host blog will also have an ebook copy of Counterpoint: Book I of Song of the Fallen to raffle off, courtesy of Guiltless Pleasure Publishing, so you'll have at least six chances to win a copy of Counterpoint. AND, at the end of the week, the last stop on the tour--right here at Fantasy Unbound--will be bursting with goodies for those loyal readers who commented on every host blog, including two $10 gift certificates to the Noble Romance Publishing store, autographed and ebook copies of Anchored, and tons of book swag (magnets, mugs, notepads, bookmarks . . . you name it!).
Details are being finalized as we speak. Check back soon to see the complete list of host blogs and tour dates. It's going to be tons of fun; I hope you'll join us. For now, I'll leave you with a question, and the blurb from Anchored's back cover.
Question first: Is there anything in particular you'd like to see or do (or have available to win) on the blog tour? I mentioned some topics above, but this tour is for the readers, after all, so our first priority is to make it as fun for you as possible. If you have ideas about that, share them!
And now the blurb:
Network news anchor Daniel Halstrom is at the top of his field, but being at the bottom of the social ladder—being a slave—makes that hard to enjoy. Especially when NewWorld Media, the company who's owned him since childhood, decides to lease him on evenings and weekends to boost their flagging profits.
Daniel's not stupid; he knows there's only one reason a man would pay so much for what little free time he has, and it's got nothing to do with his knowledge of current events. But he's never been made to serve like that before, and he fears he won't survive the experience with his sanity intact.
He finds himself in the home of Carl Whitman, a talk show host whose words fail him time and again when it comes to ordering Daniel to bed. Daniel knows what Carl wants, but it seems as if Carl isn't willing to take it, and Daniel's not willing to give it freely. His recalcitrance costs him dearly, but with patience and some hard-won understanding, love just might flourish where once there'd been only fear and pain. Can Carl become the anchor in Daniel's turbulent life, or will he end up the weight that sinks his slave for good?
