Lauri Kubuitsile is a well-known writer hailing from Botswana, Africa. She writes the terrific blog Thoughts From Botswana. I met her many years ago when I was chatting on the Writers Weekly forum and we have been friends ever since.
Not only is Lauri an exceptional writer, she is an outstanding support for other writers, so it was with pleasure that I agreed to be one of the blogs involved in her upcoming Blog Book Tour.
A Blog Book Tour is when a writer who has just had a book published goes on a promotional tour via several blogs. It’s like having launches and book signings in a bookstore except it’s on a blog. Naturally, I was honoured when Lauri asked me if she could appear on my blog and of course, I said YES!
Lauri has written a young adult novel called Signed, Hopelessly In Love.
On October 12 this blog will be kicking off the Blog Book Tour where you can meet Lauri, read my interview with her and interact with her through the comments. You will even be able to buy her book. It is very exciting.
And if that wasn’t exciting enough I am participating in NaBloWriMo this month. Yes, National Blog Writing Month is here again where the participants write a blog post every day for the month of October. I think I am probably a good candidate for this because well, to put it as delicately as possible, I have verbal diarrhoea.
I have promised myself the two CCs in order to fulfil the brief of writing a post every day (Chocolate and Coffee) and dream of an audience with the Great Blogger Guru on seeking subliminal blogging enlightenment.
Wish me luck…….
