Self-Help 101 Cover Reveal and Blog Tour Information

Work on my Christmas novella Self-Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family is going well.  I'm about to start going through it for the fourth time to polish things up and make sure it's in the best shape it can be for release on December 1st.  I also have a cover ready to go, and you all know what that means.  I need to do a cover reveal.

I'm planning to do my cover reveal on Monday, November 9th.  Mondays seem to work out well for these sorts of things, after all.  Anyone who wants to help out can sign up using the linky below, and I'll get the necessary information sent out soon.

Now I'd like to talk a little about what I'd like to do for the blog tour.  I'd like to have twelve blog tour stops to celebrate the twelve days of Christmas.  For each stop, I'd like to share a brief celebration of something related to Christmas, along with a small snippet from my novella.  Here's the schedule I'd like to follow along with the celebration I have planned for that day.

Tuesday, December 1st: ugly sweaters
Wednesday, December 2nd: exchanging gifts
Thursday, December 3rd: egg nog (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic)
Friday, December 4th: overly large meals
Monday, December 7th: Christmas caroling
Tuesday, December 8th: Christmas trees
Wednesday, December 9th: outdoor lighting displays
Thursday, December 10th: fruit cake
Friday, December 11th: candy canes
Monday, December 14th: hot chocolate
Tuesday, December 15th: Santa hats
Wednesday, December 16th: mistletoe

I'll also be holding a giveaway over the course of the blog tour where I'll be giving away twelve free e-copies of the book.  I hope this will make for a fun blog tour and a good way to get into the Christmas mood.

If you'd like to host one of my blog tour stops, please sign up using the linky below. Also leave me a comment about which day you'd prefer to host me.  Feel free to select multiple possible days if you're flexible, because that will make it easier for me to arrange the schedule.

Thanks to all of you for your support!
