Where in the world is Tori Farrell?

Haha, couldn’t resist. And those of you who get the reference know what I am talking about…

Ok, so I have been working on promoting my book, trying to get ready for the second one to release etc. Speaking of which, I sent in the final paperwork this morning, so as soon as Life of Doubt clears the final content evaluation, it will go to press YIPEE!!! But I digress…

So, in the midst of all this heavy promoting business, I have been working with numerous blogs and reviews who are giving away copies of my first book, Life of Recovery. I have learned how to gift ebooks and have given away quite a few of those, but I also have been sending out paperback copies, signed mind you, as well.

I love giving things away, call it a weakness. So I honestly have been having a field day with this, and make a trip to the post office several times a week to mail out these books (I am working on my second set now). My son, my baby, the last one in the house, is eleven. He has been helping me out so to speak, little buddy that he is, and today we were mailing a book to Europe. He has been keeping track and knows that we have sent them to Ireland and Mexico as well. Of course this is an ADULT novel, so he has no idea what the book is about, but he knows that it is important to me, and therefore important to him as he is still mama’s boy.

Of course, being that young, he still does not have a strong grasp on world geography and where these places actually are on the globe, and so we hit upon a teachable moment. Those of you who are educators and parents know exactly what I am talking about – that moment when the desire to know something or some other crazy thing happens where a person just has an epiphany about some… thing. And I got this idea…

I love my fans and I love sending out these books to them, especially to these far away places. So, we are going to get a world map to hang on the wall here in the office – kind of like a situation room where someone is investigating a crime or tracking something globally, and mark all of the places that we mail one of my books. Isn’t that great? Well, we think that it is, and I know it is going to be special to both of us as we go through this fun and exciting process.

So, I have about 12 more books on my shelf that are set to be given away on blogs here in the next few weeks. If you keep an eye on the front page here, I have devoted that space to letting you guys know where the hot spots are for give-aways. And of course, I have another box of books coming in about 2 weeks and will be lining those up for give-aways as well. Your job will be to keep spreading the word about my stories and signing up to win so that my son and I can continue to play our little game and see just how far out into the world our favorite heroine will go.
