For the grand finale of my Orangeberry Book Tour of Concussion Is Brain Injury, I’m holding a giveaway for one paperback copy on Goodreads. Enter today before time runs out!
This is a nice thing to see on a cold and rainy Friday morning:
My book Concussion Is Brain Injury is number three in Neurology and number four in Neuroscience and surprisingly number seventy-six in the large Reference/Biography & Memoir category, for ebooks listed on Kobo. And surprisingly in Neurology, I’m ahead of a book by Oliver Sacks. Not bad!

At the end of my first week of my Orangeberry Book Tour for Concussion Is Brain Injury comes a #TwitterView, short for a Twitter interview. This is my third one, and I’m getting to be an old hand at this — or so I think until I see the first question. Oy!

As I write this, I’m mid-answering the questions as they appear on my Twitter timeline. But no need to go searching for my answers on my timeline. For your convenience, I’ve created the widget below where you can see all the questions and my answers all at once, beginning with my first #TwitterView!
The one for She has been running a couple of weeks now, and so the book reviews are starting to come in. Some are done through book clubs, and they have a question and answer format. From what I can ascertain, the reader/reviewer of my book picks four questions from a list I assume their book club gives them, and they give brief answers. Then they attach a star rating to it. A few do, ahem, give away a few details. So if you like being kept fully in suspense, skip those. But if you’re the kind of reader who wants to know everything before you dive in, go over to my Goodreads page for She and check out the reviews!
“At a glance, you think you are indulging in a fantasy read but as you go deeper into the story, you see the other side of the story which is how to make a come back after tragedy has struck. This is where the story becomes interesting.” (Vicky Smith on Amazon)
There are also a couple of new reviews on Amazon’s US site. They’re either straight reviews or in the book club question-and-answer format. It’s too bad Amazon doesn’t propagate reviews across all their sites — as a reader, I may want to buy from Amazon Canada but have to go to Amazon US first to read any reviews, skipping over the one-star reviews as they’re usually idiotic.
“When did you first know you could be a writer? I didn’t consider writing a career for me until…” (From interview on Bits ‘n Bobs on Books)
Some of the reviews appear on individual blogs too. Bits ‘n Bobs on Books published a review (tiny spoiler alert: main character name reveal), author interview, and book feature this week. I also continue to have Book Features, the latest on The Reading Cat and Lonely Heart Reviews, and guest posts, the latest on How to Write by the Seat of your Pants on Lonely Heart Reviews.
“I want readers to know that concussion is a brain injury, a serious injury.” (From interview on Mommy Adventures with Ravina)
Meanwhile, my book tour of Concussion Is Brain Injury begins with a book feature on Peace from Pieces and an Author Interview on Mommy Adventures with Ravina (which is also holding a giveaway for a $50 Amazon gift card for the next 10 days).
My first Goodreads Giveaway for my newest book Concussion Is Brain Injury was such a hit, I decided to hold another one! But enter it now — only a day and a half left for your chance to win a paperback copy!!
As I wrote earlier, I was interviewed by K8 on her blog. For two weeks in late January, K8 aka Froze8 of froze8.blogspot.com published daily interviews with authors. Genres covered include horror, young adult, super spuds (heh), steampunk — a variety to satisfy everyone. And there’s even at least one other Canadian interviewed! If you want to discover new reads that the big guns miss, check out this interviewing event and maybe even win a giveaway.
My interview — including sweet giveaways — was posted on January 24. There are three days left in the giveaways. Read my answers to questions such as “Catch us up, what have you been up to in 2012?” and It’s a new year! Have you made any new resolutions you’d like to share with us?” and enter to win a copy of She or Concussion Is Brain Injury!
I met K8 through BiblioCrunch. But I got to know her more through the Twitter #indiechat BiblioCrunch hosts every Tuesday night. One Tuesday, she asked for interviewee volunteers at the start of #indiechat. I put up my hand tout de suite. For two weeks, beginning last week, K8 aka Froze8 of froze8.blogspot.com is publishing daily interviews with authors. Genres covered include horror, young adult, super spuds (heh), steampunk — a variety to satisfy everyone. And there’s even at least one other Canadian interviewed! This is a great way to check out writing by authors the big guns miss and to introduce yourself to a new book or ten, maybe even win a giveaway. My interview — including sweet giveaways — will appear on January 24. Keep an eye out!
My very first Goodreads giveaway, and it’s for Concussion Is Brain Injury. Enter now, and you just may win a free copy. But hurry. Ends by January 16th.
