Just like that we come to the last guest post of the Apocalypse in the Balance Blog Tour, and today we get another excellent reviews. This time we visit Georgina Hannan for her take on the book and it is a good one. Georgina has not read the first book, so it will definitely give some perspective to those who are worried about picking it up without having read Apocalypse Rising.

Tomorrow we’ll have a follow up post and the last post of the Blog Tour, so if you missed any of the posts over the last two weeks you’ll find a complete list there. Make sure you go back, read them all and enter your chance to win an autographed copy of one of my books.  You can register to win at each site.

On the Twelfth Day of the Blog Tour

Blog Tour
Throes of Creation by Leonid Pasternak

Wow, the blog tour is almost done and what a fun ride it has been. Eleven days worth of guest posts, interviews and book reviews has left me excited and exhausted all at the same time. The experience has left me completely excited about getting the upcoming novella finished so that I can move on to the next book.

So why stop the fun today?  The very talented Kristy Carey is hosting today’s guest post. I shared some of the process that led to the writing of Apocalypse Rising and Apocalypse in the Balance.

Make sure you stop in and take part in the rafflecopter giveaway so that you can have a chance at winning an autographed copy of one of my books.

Man how I love to see those good reviews. Three days in a row on the blog tour saw three great reviews in a row. I’m feeling so pumped about those reviews that I cannot wait to get the next couple of books written, but for now we have to wait and stop at our next guest post hosted by Rachel Bostwick.  In today’s post I talk about the first rough draft novel I ever finished called Alone. More specifically we talk about what I like in the post-apocalyptic genre and what my future plans for that story are.

Give it a read and make sure you check out the rafflecopter giveaway.

Blog Tour Days 9 and 10

Blog Tour

I’m sorry for not posting yesterday’s Blog Tour stop yesterday. I didn’t get the link until after lunch, and with it being election day I did not make it home until nearly nine o’clock last night. I wish I could say that I stayed up late watching the election results, but I didn’t and it is probably for the best since it would have gotten me all worked up before bed. As it was, my wife had to talk me down from a ledge.

Yesterday’s blog tour stop was once again at Culture Shock, where I received an excellent review for Apocalypse in the Balance. Today’s Blog stop is hosted by AC Elliot, featuring another review.

I don’t know about you, but I love seeing all of these positive reviews. Make sure you check them out, then visit Amazon to pick up your copy today.

Day Seven on the Blog Tour

Bam! It’s Sunday! Day Two of NaNoWriMo! National Exclamation Point Appreciation Day!  Okay, I’m kidding about the last one, but it certainly should be.

As awesome as all of the other reasons for loving today are, even more special is the fact that today is the seventh stop on the Apocalypse in the Balance Blog Tour. Make sure you stop and read the interview I did with author Todd Maternowski. Todd’s a great author who writes rough and gritty fantasy that you should definitely check out.


The Big Number Six

The Day Six Blog Tour Stop!


Happy November 1st! For the writers in the group let me also say, Happy NaNoWriMo.  I haven’t started working on it yet this morning, but the day is young and I’ll be hitting it as soon as the normal Saturday morning insanity has passed in the Swett household.

For today’s Apocalypse in the Balance Blog Tour stop we have a guest post hosted by Jamie White of Culture Shock fame. Seeing as motivation and inspiration can be hard to come by during National Novel Writing Month I shared some of what inspires me to write. Check out the blog post and make sure to take part in the Rafflecopter Giveaway for a chance to win an autographed copy of my books.

AJ Beamish is the man!

Here you have it folks, the guest blog post I wrote for today’s Blog Tour stop can be found right HERE!

Since it is Halloween and all, I figured a post on fear and how to build up to it in your writing might and it is just in time for Halloween night and the start of NaNoWriMo, Make sure you visit The Dead Console Society, read the post and enter the Rafflecopter Giveaway for a chance to win autographed copies of my books.

Happy Halloween!

Blog Tour Day Five?

Well we had a little problem yesterday morning. Yesterday’s blogger had something come up and was not able to post the amazing blog post I wrote about using multiple sources of inspiration to fuel your writing. That’s okay though. Today Melina Turner is doing better and has posted the guest post here. The stop that was planned for today mat or may not happen. I was a little late in getting the guest post to AJ Beamish, so I don’t know if it will be up today or not.

Since today is Halloween:

Day Four of the Blog Tour

Blog Tour

I’m very excited about today’s stop on the Apocalypse in the Balance Blog Tour. AJ Beamish of The Dead Console fame has posted a Quick and Dirty Book Review of Apocalypse in the Balance, and his post is an excellent read if I do say so myself. AJ hasn’t finished reading the book (as you will see when you read his review), so his post has more to do with the improvement he has seen in my writing since he reviewed Apocalypse Rising.  He writes with a special flare and a self deprecating sort of humor that I often find elusive in my own writing. I think you’ll really enjoy reading his blog post and blog.

Make sure you hit up the rafflecopter giveaway for your chance to win an autographed copy of one of my books.
