The Magical Mystery Blog Tour – 2 November-UPDATED

EmmettNot only does The Magical Mystery Blog Tour bus head thousands of miles away, it’s actually heading into summer at our destination!

Yes, today we are in the land down-under.  Our stop is with fellow Urban Fantasy author and comic book aficionado EMMETT SPAIN writer of the  London City Novel series.

I do a quick  “6 Words or Less” interview with Emmett, and he reviews The Prodigals Foole on his London City Blog.

Check it out:




AlWell, we have a double-dip tour today!  Along with our stop in Australia, we also stop in New England with author AL BOUDREAU Who also interviews me and posts his 5-star review of The Prodigal’s Foole.  Stop over to his WordPress Site to have a read.

Al’s site is here:

Thanks to both EMMETT and AL for their reviews!  Time spent with both is time well spent!

The Magical Mystery Blog Tour – 1 November

leah_and_meThe Magical Mystery Blog Tour bus is staying over night down south!

A day after launch for The Prodigal’s Foole, I’ll be hangin’ with LEAH PETERSEN who posted a marvelous review of my book yesterday (Find it HERE) and whose very popular micro-writing competition, #5MinuteFiction, runs today.

See, I’m sticking around, not just because of Ms. Petersen’s southern hospitality, but because I’m the JUDGE for 5MF!

So sharpen your writing skills folks, because the winner of todays competition will win a copy of The Prodigal’s Foole!

5MinuteFiction happens every Tuesday at 1:30 PM Eastern Time!

24 hours before Launch- The Magical Mystery Blog Tour

eb_newweb_picTwenty-four hours before the official launch!

The Magical Mystery Blog Tour bus heads north to chilly Canada to visit with writer EDEN BAYLEE this fine day.  Heaters on the bus are not needed, especially if you’ve ever read Eden’s work.  Wordsmith of fine erotica, and contributor to the Word Count Podcast, Ms. Baylee weaves words into the most sensuous and enticing narratives.  Her anthology Fall into Winter is a must-read.

Today, she takes her smoldering, simmering pen and offers up both an interview with me (as a part of her Inside the Author’s Mind series) and a marvelous review of The Prodigal’s Foole.

Please head over and read both:

Beginning today and running for the next week or so, any of my followers on twitter, I would LOVE it if you found away to use the hash-tag:


I want to see if we authors and readers can impact the ‘trends’ on Twitter, and quite frankly part of my global launch will be a conversation with all of those using the tag through-out the day tomorrow!

24 hours to go…

YARDLEY and the lovely and talented writer and artist, SESSHA BATTO.

On MONDAY 31 OCTOBER (Launh day!!) I’ll be holding an internet-based “eLaunch” where I will be asking all my friends on Facebook, Twitter and around the net to help me get the word out about The Prodigal’s Foole.  On twitter, we’ll be using the hash-tag #TheProdigalsFoole as much as possible, Facebook will have links and stories, and of course the 2nd Annual HALLOWEEN PODCAST for the Word Count will be released which will include a reading from the book!

Crazy week ahead…so please head over to L.M. STULL’s site today to kick it all off!  Click HERE:’s-foole-a-letter-from-symon-bryson/
