So I've been all in your faces for the last two weeks online with my Finding Claire Fletcher blog tour.  You're probably all sick of seeing me and my book and wondering where the heck I've been in terms of commenting on your blogs.


So first I want to say THANK YOU to all my blog tour hosts.  You guys have been so supportive and encouraging and wonderful--I am so blessed and grateful for each one of you!  Also THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by along the tour and took the time to comment!  I really appreciate it.


Second, yes, I've been remiss in my blogging duties the last two weeks.  You'd think it's because I'm busy with FCF launch stuff but actually, a lot of other things are going on.  Unfortunately, my home has been ravaged by illness the last few weeks--round and round it goes--including 2 cold/flus, one surgical procedure and one pretty scary health concern with my child.  Not to mention me being forehead-deep in edits for my second book, preparing for the holidays and oh yeah, working full time to keep the roof over our sick heads!  So I sincerely apologize and hope to catch up on all your blogs in the next week!  If I didn't respond to an email or a comment or I haven't been by your blog recently, I promise I'm not being an a world class jerk.  I'm just a bit overwhelmed by situations out of my control.  Just please know I am so grateful for each and every one of you who stop by this blog, who hosted me and who stopped along the tour and I do promise to catch up!


Third, I'd like to announce the blog tour winners!
