Heads Up

 Contest and Blog Tour
Let's Get Beyond Tolerance

David Inside Out
Monday, January 17th to Friday, January 28th

I will be hosting the David Inside Out Blog Tour tomorrow, but I wanted to give you a heads-up today so you can visit other tour stops and earn more points toward prizes.

Here's the info:

At each stop, the blogger will have a letter posted to a favorite author. This relates to David Inside Out because David and his best friend Eddie write letters to their favorite romance authors. 
You'll definitely want to visit as many tour stops as possible, because there is a PRIZE PACK to win.

To enter the giveaway, you have to comment on this post at "Let's Get Beyond Tolerance" with your entry numbers.
You get ONE POINT for each letter you leave a comment for

You get TWO POINTS for each blog on the tour you follow (and Let's Get Beyond Tolerance follow!)

You get THREE POINTS if you post a letter to a favorite author on your own blog and link back to Let's Get Beyond Tolerance.

Here are the blog stops and the day they will be posting their letters:

PRIZE PACK (Open to U.S./Canada)- ENDS January 31st
Signed copy of David Inside Out by Lee Bantle (donated by the author)

I'll Get There...It Better Be Worth the Trip by John Donovan (donated by Adam from Roof Beam Reader)

Pre-Order of I Am J by Cris Beam (donated by Lizzy from

Fun stationary/card set and postage stamps (donated by Cecilia from The Epic Rat)

Hardback copy of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (donated by Shannon)

Tomorrow, I will post my letter to a favorite author.  You'll have to come back to see who it is . . .  suspense and all that.  :-)

Anyone who wants to join me tomorrow is welcome to post a letter to one of your favorite authors, too.  We can never have too much author love!

Shannon this is a fabulous shout-out! Thanks for sharing! I am going to be over here tomorrow checking it out!!!

As much as I love the fun idea of writing to your favorite author I can't!!! Wanna know why? Because it's already written in a story I'm working on with a publishing house!! Exciting yet it's like you're punishing me here....

Not to worry, guess I've have to buy the book because the cover is amazing in itself!

Old Kitty said...

Oooh can't wait to see to whom your letter will be addressed to!! Fantastic!!

Good luck hosting the David inside out blog tour! Take care

Shannon, awe, this makes me so happy! It's awesome enough that you're working to promote tolerance, but it's especially great because you're an educator. That is exactly what we are talking about in my Intro to Ed class right now. The differences between me and my classmates and how we'll react to the differences between us and our students.

When the class first began, my prof asked us to share our fears about teaching via email, I revealed that my #1 fear was that I am gay and I have no idea what that will mean when I start looking to teach, and once my students find out. So, today will be an interesting topic.

As always, glad to have you on my side!

Lindsay said...

Yay that you're promoting tolerance!

As for writing to my favourite author -- that's a tough one. So many. LOL.
Looking forward to yours though :)

Susan R. Mills said...

Fun! I'll be back tomorrow.

Carolyn V. said...

I can't wait to see what you've written to your favorite author. =) What a great idea!

Shari said...

That is such an awesome idea. I'm looking forward to seeing what you write to your favorite author. I don't have a clue what I'd say. (Knowing me, something lame)

Thanks for the early shout out of the tour! I'm actually thinking of extending it a week...just to give people more time to make their rounds and enter. I'll email you though. :)
