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:

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!
