1. Holy Hades they’re a lot of work:
Yeah, well, anything great is a lot of work. It took quite a while to line up hosts, write up guest posts, and line up everything. But the process turned out to be pretty fun. I got to meet a lot of new bloggers as I scheduled things. And the excitement starting to generate, even before the tour started, was contagious. I’m a debut author, so this whole process was a first for me, and I’m hooked! Good thing I have a few more books contracted, right? That means I’ll get to have a few more tours.
It takes a lot of planning and organizing, but just start way early and you’re golden. In the end… it’s so worth it!
2. Be bold:
Many of my characters are GREAT at being bold (who wouldn’t be with super powers, right?) Me. Not so much. Probably why I write my characters the way I do. The idea of writing guest posts freaked me out. I was like, “What do I write? No one will care what I have to say.”
Yeah, well, I had to get over myself. I can only be me, right? So, go with it and write the posts. I checked out some past posts, asked a couple experienced writers for advice and then just went with it.
Just like some people will love Wasteland and some won’t, I can only write what I write, right?
3. I love giving away things:
I’ve always loved giving away things. When I get to see the smile it brings on people’s faces—it truly warms my heart. Now, since blog tours are done online, I won’t be able to see people when they find out they won a prize, but it didn’t matter. The idea of giving away prizes still warmed my heart because I remember how I felt when I won prizes on blog giveaways.
So…along that line…I want to give someone an e-book today! All you have to do is leave a comment:
Tell me about something that makes you smile.
Yep. That easy.
Now. If you want to earn an extra entry, head over to twitter and tell your friends to come on by…I love visitors. Be sure to put @lynnrush and #Wasteland in the tweet so I can see it. Also, put your email in the comment so I can contact you if your name is drawn.

Bound by the blood contract his human mother signed four centuries ago, half-demon, David Sadler, must obey his demonic Master’s order to capture fifteen-year-old Jessica Hanks. But as he learns more about her, he realizes she may be the key to freedom from his demonic enslavement.
The only obstacle—Jessica’s distractingly beautiful Guardian, Rebeka Abbott. He must not give in to their steamy chemistry, or he will lose his humanity. But fresh off a quarter millennia of sensory deprivation as punishment for not retrieving his last target, he may not be able to resist temptation long enough to save what’s left of his human soul.
