The hostess with the mostest?

We've had some wild blog parties in the past, haven't we?
Time was when an abandoned blog would be quickly spotted and squatted, with wild raves taking place in the comments box.
The blog owner would come back from holiday to sprawled bodies, empty bottles, overflowing ashtrays and dried up chocolate fountains.
Not for a while though.

This is a new idea and it's just as exciting (though hopefully a bit more tasteful than some of those Bacchanalian comments box romps where anything goes).
An official virtual event.

Tania Hershman, who blogs at Titania Writes, is embarking on a virtual book tour to talk about her recently published book of short stories, The White Road and Other Stories.

The tour kicks off on 28th October and this 'ere blog is going to be a stopping post next January.

You can follow the tour here.
I've bought a copy of the book and I'm really looking forward to reading it.

It seems more and more authors are doing virtual book tours, I read about another one currently taking place just this past week. It certainly leaves a far smaller carbon footprint!

Just come back here on my old mama laptop. A far more sedate and dignified vehicle for a woman of my years.

Great idea - is she coming to an Irish blog??? It can be arranged ;)

Debi said...

I'm sure she'd love to, Babs!

PM her via the BWBD forum.
(That's a sentence you wouldn't have heard a few years ago without looking blank. Jargon bargain.)

Hi all. Thanks Debi, I am very excited about "appearing" on your blog, it certainly is "greener" this way, although no cheap red wine and aching hand from all that signing. Virtual signing? Virtual hand-ache? Watch this space!

Barbara - I'd love to come to Ireland, virtually! Wasn't sure how to get in touch with you. My email is

Tania - your book is wonderful! Really, not virtually. I'll be posting a review soon.
