A Little Murder Tour

 

Book Tour Coming Soon!

Lake Winnipesaukee nature trail

Hey everyone! I decided to write a brief post to let you know what’s coming up. I finished reading Cindy Davis’, A Little Murder, so that means my next tour will be soon! Yay! This one is a bit different because, for the first time ever, this book will be taking me out of NYC and into the open road. I will be heading to Alton Bay in New Hampshire! I’m so excited to take my book tour on the road. Woohoo!

If you read my Lake Rules post, then you’ll know I’m already familiar with New Hampshire’s lakes region. I love this area! Lake Winnipesaukee is absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to share more of it with you through this book tour. I actually am not sure if I’ve been to Alton Bay, so it’ll be a bit new for me too!

So this weekend I will be heading back to New Hampshire and I will do the tour sometime between Sunday and Tuesday. As always, a book review and sneak peek will soon follow. Besides traveling, this tour will also be different because I will be doing it on two separate days. The first day we’ll have a pretty sweet ride- a cool boat will get us around and on the following day, we’ll be in a fancy automobile. Jk. It’s just a regular car. Should I get a convertible? Someone send me a convertible stat! Well, probably not but I think it’ll be fun to do a two day tour. Spread out the good times!

You might have also noticed that I wrote “we.” That’s because for the first time ever it won’t be a solo tour! I’ll have my family with me. Hopefully they will give the tour the proper respect it deserves. We shall see! Never know with that crew.

The picture at the top was taken during a nature walk in New Hampshire from the last time I was there. Can’t wait to go back and to bring you all with me! Fun fun!

Until then, please enjoy a couple more pics from that nature walk.

Here’s me and oh my gosh just look at this cute dog!

 

Stay tuned! 😍

But first, if you didn’t read my last book tour, check it out here!

And come find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

See you soon!

Lake Rules: Relax Relax Relax

 

Lake Winnipesaukee

I didn’t make up the rules, I just follow them. I think I got the rules off some sign and I wholeheartedly agree! It’s instant relaxation coming to Lake Winnipesaukee.

My regularly scheduled post has been delayed because I came up here to of course relax and celebrate Father’s Day and my birthday.  I’m just being nice, it’s all about my birthday. My gift to my father is me. 😉

Since I won’t have my Annie van post up yet, please check out my book review and sneak peek into my East Village tour inspired by the book, here. The full tour should be up by Sunday, cross your fingers!

Until then, I wanted to share a little bit of Lake Winni with you all. This post is dedicated to my awesome Twitter friend @teamechavarre. When I did my first tour inspired by a book set in NYC, the blog post got about 3 views, no lie. I felt a bit dejected and wasn’t sure if I would do it again. It was so fun and I loved doing it, but I wanted people to read it too. So then Sarah Smith comes along aka teamechavarre and she starts liking, retweeting, and commenting about how amazing it was. She made my day, week, year, everything! Since then I’ve kept it up and couldn’t be happier about it. Thank you Sarah for your continued support!

Sarah is also an awesome writer who is working on a book, which is sure to be just as awesome as she is. You can also check out her writing now by going to her smokin’ hot blog.

Sarah Writes Smut! Does she ever! Makes me blush. You will surely be tantalized so check it out here!

As promised to Sarah, here are my Lake Winni pics. Enjoy!

I love when I get visits from mama ducks and her ducklings!

Lake Winni duck

This one is smart. On our deck, we have a bird feeder that a squirrel tries to hack into thus knocking lots of seeds on the ground below. The chipmunks below are happy about that and so is this duck!

Speaking of chipmunks…

When I’m here, I spend a lot of my time sitting in front of the lake reading and feeding the chipmunks. I end up spending more time feeding these guys because they keep coming back for more and more! They will run up right to my lap to get some seeds. I’m the chipmunk whisperer!

Lake Winnipesaukee Loon
Can you see the loon?

Closer look!

When you hear a loon or two on the lake, that’s the ultimate relaxation moment.

If you’re curious, you can hear their sounds on this YouTube video.

Happy Birthday to me!

Best for last as always:

Winni

Winni Girl! She’s my little niece named after Lake Winnipesaukee. Love this girl!

That’s all for now. Might have some more Lake Winni posts this summer. I’m looking for a book set here, but don’t know if I’ve found a good one yet. We’ll see! I’m open to suggestions.

Don’t forget to come back for my #Annievan tour!

Thanks for reading! If you’re not currently by a lake, you can still find ways to work relaxation into your everyday life. I know I will try too when I’m back in crazy New York. Just think: relax relax relax.

Edit: #Annivan tour is now up!
