My book blog tour begins tomorrow! What is a book blog tour? It’s the digital-age substitute for an author’s traveling around the country doing book signings. Most book signings cost the author more in travel and other expenses than he takes in through sales. Of course, meeting readers in person is a great benefit I don’t want to pass up. So I hope to do some traditional book appearances as well.

But for the next two weeks, I will be traveling to the online homes of fellow Catholic bloggers who have agreed to help me share my book with more readers. See the schedule below to follow along for interviews. reviews, a slideshow, an excerpt, and a giveaway. The person with the best comment on a host blog during the tour will have a Mass said for his intentions by my brother, Fr. Michael Mary, M. Carm.

Don’t forget! The Google+ Hangout Launch Party is tonight! If I have already sent you an email invitation, please respond to it now so you don’t miss out. If you bought the book but have not yet been invited, you must email me your purchase order number by noon Central Time today, with the subject line Hangout.” My email is crossini4774 at comcast dot net. This is a one-of-a kind, live video question and answer session. Don’t worry if you’ve never attended a Hangout before or if you don’t have a Google account.

Now, here’s the schedule. I will add links as each post goes up:

Wednesday, August 6       The Breadbox Letters with host Nancy Shuman

Thursday, August 7            Quicksilver to Gold with K. Ann Seeton – take a look at the slide show that summarizes the main point of my book

Friday, August 8                 My scheduled host for today had to take a raincheck. I hope to have a new post on SpiritualDirection.com to share with you.

Saturday, August 9             Written By the Finger of God with Anabelle Hazard

Sunday, August 10             Jacqueline Vick at Bad Martha

Monday, August 11            Catholic Fire with Jean Heimann. A giveaway is only one of the things Jean has planned for this post!

Wednesday, August 13     Hoi Kai Paulos with Joe Wetterling

Thursday, August 14         Prayer Gardens with Margaret Rose Realy

Friday, August 15               Will Write for Tomato Pie with Erin McCole Cupp

Can I count on your help?

Already readers are telling me how much Trusting God with St. Therese is helping them grow closer to Christ. Here’s a thoughtful, detailed review by Therese at My Desert Heart. I know that many more people are yearning to trust God, but don’t know how to go about it. Will you help me get the word out to them?

Would you please share this post right now on Facebook, Google+,  or Twitter?

Could you commit to sharing the posts during the blog tour?

If you have finished reading Trusting God with St. Therese, could you please write a review on Amazon? Let other readers know your honest thoughts about the book.

Finally, if you have not yet bought the book yourself, now is a great time. Buy it by noon Central Time today, and you can still join our Launch Party this evening. The paperback is now available at Barnes and Noble online too, so you can probably order it from your local store.

God reward you!

    I have the kindle edition of the book and it has been what I have needed to progress. I am reading with enthusiasm and think you have done a great job writing your story in the way you laid out the book. I found out about the book from Nancy Shuman and clicked over from there and bought the book. It is so thoughtfully written. The stories are so relatable.

      Thanks, Sherry, and welcome to my blog. Let me know what you think when you have finished the book.

    Comments disappearing? I guess our old enemy the devil hates your book, huh? I just received it from B&N and can’t wait to get started. I’m exhausted, if you know what I mean.

    Yesterday, at a family reunion, I learned of a story that made me think of you. My mother and aunt, along with my older sister and brother, were driving along a farm road when the car stalled and would not restart. It was in the 60’s, so they were not belted. A tractor trailer was fast approaching. My mom grabbed my brother and instructed my aunt to leave the door open so that the truck might see the interior lights. Blinded by panic, my aunt did not grab my sister, who was standing on the back seat. My mom ran as fast and far out as she could only to notice that my aunt was on the other side of the road without my sister!

    They both watched in horror as the truck approached the car but by the grace of God and the interior lights, stopped in time.

    Connie, I wasn’t even born at the time, but just the thought of losing my sister in that way was devastating.

    God bless.

      Wow, Michelle, thank God she wasn’t hurt! Yes, I had problems with my comments again yesterday at Anabelle’s blog. I commented twice and nothing showed up, although Nancy’s comment did. Frustrating, but we can get along without them. Yesterday was my best day of sales so far. I made it to #4 in Kindle Catholic books!

    Connie, I’ve been so MIA lately, but I just wanted to let you know that I’m putting your post out there. I hope it’s getting you some traffic 😉

      Thanks, Jenna. I understand. I just wrote a post about the blog tour for tomorrow. Lots of spiritual interference, I think. But successful nonetheless. God bless and I hope you’re feeling better!
